Cerwynn Bolten is the daughter of John, and Betha Bolten making her a member of House Bolten through her mother and a member of House Cole through her father. Cerwynn has three siblings in Jordin, and, Vastif, and Jeanie Bolten of whom are important members of House Bolten with her older sister Jeanie engaged to Wilham Dustin of House Dustin, and her older brother Jordin an increasingly important member of the army of Bolten, and Vastif the most valued member of the male next generation behind only Ramsey Bolten himself. Cerwynn Bolten was bethrothed to Edwyn Urnet, and their marriage was postponed after the War with Lucerne, and to her great happiness he died during the fighting freeing her from the obligation. Following this betrothal she was betrothed to Edgar Wilbort of whom was fourteen years old at the time of the coming of the Lucernian-Bolten War, and the two are close but due to the age their is more of a friendship between the two.
Cerwynn Bolten was born the fourth child of John and Betha Bolten and it was her birth that would cause Cerwyn to have an extremely strained relationship with both her father, and her uncle who both resent her for the death of her mother Betha Bolten who died during childbirth. While Roose does this by simply ignoring her, her father John refuses to play this way and goes beyond simply ignoring her and is downright cruel to Cerwynn. This has led to a family devide where Jeanie often sides with her father, and Jordin stands beside Cerwynn creating a difficult situation where noone will win in the end. As the Kingdom of Bolten moved against the Lucernians at the city of Koenisburg there was a situation where she was left alone for the first time without her father harassing her. During this time Cerwynn came to love to silence, and the feeling she got when her father was away and this wasn't helped when he made her bethrothed to Edwyne Urnet of whom was a twisted young man. The now fourteen year old girl came to for the first time despise her father to the point that she begin to plan for his death. She at first just left this to imaginations, but as time went on she begin to look into actual poisons and other methods of actually killing her father. As she continued down this path she was stopped by her cousin Domeric Bolten of whom knew what she was going through and pulled her away from a path that he knew would lead her away from the person she wanted to be. With Domeric's help she was able to escape the capital and came to reside within the fortress of Wilborne Castle where she became the Castellan of the castle and prepared a marriage with the young lord of the castle. Following the death of her cousin Domeric, Cerwyn sent letters of support to Ramsey Bolten in the capital, but refused the call from him to return to the capital, and she strengthened the defenses of Wilborne so that if he tried to call on her she would be able to defend herself. Cerwyn would begin making calls to the Lucernians attempting to surrender, and Jamie Lannister would send her two flags of House Lannister, and House Lovie of which she would display on her walls thus surrendering the fortress to the Kingdom of Lucerne. Following her surrender to Lucerne she would meet with her brother Jordin Bolten of which together they would form House Bolten of Lucerne marking the distinct beggining of the civil war among the ranks of House Bolten.
- "Her birth should have been a happy moment, but the only thing it did was bring the entire house into a position of pure darkness. Whatever thoughts there were about reform those went right out the window the moment Betha died."
- -Domeric Bolten
Cerwynn Bolten was the fourth and ultimately final child of John, and Betha Bolten. Her birth was an especially difficult one for Betha and following the actual birth Betha started losing blood too quickly, and only a half an hour after the birth she died of blood loss. Her death shocked the rest of the family who had all come to the John, and Betha household to witness the beautiful day for the House but had actually been their for the final moments of Betha Bolten who was a beloved figure in the ranks of both Dreadfort, and House Bolten.
- "The death of her mother led to a hatred from her father that bordered on sadistic. No matter what she would have tried to do it wouldn't of mattered."
- -Cerwynn Bolten

White Knife Marriage
| White Knife Marriage|
Secure the white knife for the Kingdom. Go there and create another friend where once there was nothing. Do it for the Valley.
Following the coronotation of William Lovie III. the tournament of Nortburg was held to celebrate this occasion, and during this many foreign kingdoms sent people to represent them and try to regrow relations with Lucerne as most relations were on life support under the rule of Bill Lovie. One of these groups was House Manderly of the White Knife, and they would send many members including Wylis Manderly and his wife and daughter, as well as Marlon Manderly the uncle of Wylis. Wendal, Winfred, and Wynafryd Manderly also traveled to Lucerne in order to help arrange the marriage contract between House Manderly and the Kingdom of Lucerne, and during this time Wendal would take part in the tournament of Nortburg where he listed quite well. After the tournament ended Wylis would come to speak with William Lovie III. and the two would discuss marriage options between the houses, and on the advise of Charlie Swan William's father in law it was decided that Miley Black would be married to Winfred Manderly the only son of Marlon Manderly. Miley would be recalled as quickly as possible to Nortburg where she met with Wylis, and Marlon and was seen to be exceptionally beautiful and smart and thus Marlon immediatly accepted the arrangement, and it was decided to happen shortly after. It was agreed between Wylis, and William that following the marriage the two groups would begin arrangements to bring the Manderlys into the sphere of Lucerne, and away from the growing threats of Bolten, and the Iron Islands.
Once the Manderlys returned to White Knife the wedding was already being planned, and it takes longer then expected after Ironborn raid several ships filled with wedding supplies purchased from Pontus. When the wedding is finally planned Miley Black and basically her entire family alongside many nobles of Forks travel to the White Knife for the wedding. Lucas Scott travels northward and alongside Morrigan joins the fleet going to White Knife and acts as the sort of commander of the defence of the fleet despite be uneeded due to the high strength of the fleet. On the trip to the White Knife Lucas Scott grows to be friends with Miley Black and the two share stories of their youth with Lucas withholding much of the true darkness that he went through. One night Morrigan finally confronts him on why he has lied so many times to Miley, and he breaks down revealing that he is trying to make himself believe it wasn't as bad as he knows it was, and the two share a kiss before making love in his room beneath deck.
Arriving at the White Knife Lucas Scott was shown around the land by Wylis Manderly and his wife of whom held hands the entire time they walked Lucas around White Harbor. Lucas would remain with Wylis after his wife had to leave to wake up their youngest of whom needed milk, and the two would discuss the situation in White Knife, and Wylis was completely open as Lucas had a letter from William saying that Lucas was to be fully trusted with sensitive information for he was a loyal servent. Wylis discussed with him how the Boltens had begun sending word to White Harbor stating that the White Knife was deemed a part of the larger plans for Bolten, and that if they did not join with the Boltens then other steps would be taken to have them join. Lucas questioned whether they could hold off the Boltens, and Wylis told him that it was going to be difficult for the Boltens as the Manderlys had a large fleet which would make crossing very difficult, but if they were able to land they had significantly larger ground forces and in that case White Knife would fall. The two would be interrupted when a messenger told Wylis that Domeric Bolten and his cousin had arrived in White Harbor with several other nobles, and wished to attend the wedding. Domeric Bolten would demand food be given to him so that he was under the guest right while he remained in White Harbor, and an honorable man Wyman Manderly would give him this while also allowing Domeric, Jordin, and Cerwynn Bolten to attend the wedding itself. Before the wedding itself Domeric was able to convince Wylis Manderly the heir of White Knife to allow him to see Wyman and Domeric finally speaking to the Lord of White Harbor would attempt to convinse him to move away from the Lucernian direction he was going, and at first the Lord of House Manderly planned on lying and saying he was still thinking, but as Domeric seemed to be such an honest man Lord Manderly would be honest with Domeric as well revealing that after the wedding the negotiations would begin in order to merge White Knife with Lucerne. Apologizing to Domeric, he would tell him to enjoy the wedding but there was nothing he could do to change anything as Wyman knew that Ramsey had killed his sister and couldn`t accept this, nor could he accept aligning himself with the goverment of the Kingdom of Bolten, and with this Domeric left the room completely discouraged that he had failed so completely.
Following the confrontation of sorts between Domeric, and Wyman Manderly the Lord of White Knife would command the wedding to move forward, and without any further discussions the wedding would move forward. The wedding went by without a hitch as Miley Black, and Winfred Manderly became man in wife in a marriage that most saw seemed to already have found love between the two, and Lucas would make a point to meet fully with Domeric Bolten following the end of the wedding ceremony. With the ceremony Domeric would once again speak with Lord Manderly of whom this time refused to even speak with him sending instead his brother Marlon Manderly to tell Domeric that he was happy he came but it was time for the Boltens to leave White Knife. Following this Lucas would be alerted to Domeric being in the main hall with Jordin and Cerwynn by Egbert Elric, and Julessa Bearmant and he leaves the docks to find Domeric waiting outside the hall for him. The two leave the wedding and speak of many things, and Lucas is shocked at genuinly nice Domeric appears to be, and Domeric tells him a story of Bolten, and despite how well the two get along the conversation takes a dark turn when Domeric is forced to threaten Lucas with the knowledge that if Lucerne interferes anymore in the White Knife that he will be forced to intervene himself. Lucas knows that Domeric is a capable young man and knowingly takes this threat as more then just a hollow gesture knowing that Domeric will do this despite his gentle nature. Following their conversation Lucas receives a raven and it instructs him to return to Lucerne where he is to meet with his uncle Kieth in Highgarden, and he is to do this with all possible haste.
