The Mad Hatter is an extremely powerful Magi, and it through him that a large number of the very intelligent animals have been created that now form a section of the leadership of the White Rabbit Army.
The Mad Hatter's early life are unknown but it is known that Alice found him stumbling drunk in the white paint of a clown outside of the tavern that she was staying. Alice helped him, and following this he fell in love with her, and although she did not love him romantically she gave him what he wanted sexually and he became utterly devoted to her. Alice and the Mad Hatter would spend time following the trail of her sister Natashia Cole and while this was happening he begin to grow more desperate for her, and only her increasing skill at menipulation allowed her to control his increasingly drastic desires. Finding the trail of Natashia Cole the Mad Hatter would follow Alice to Bravaas where would under Alice's directive to assist her sister Natashia with devotion as well and he became famous for creating Magi creatures out of long deceased souls he found in cemeteries or at least that is the story he has told people about where he summoned the souls. The Mad Hatter created half a dozen of these creatures of which to his shock and anger shared no affection for him, and in fact instead of loving him they outright despised him to the point that he was unable to even speak with them. The Mad Hatter disappeared following the massacre of Pavio Lone's sister and did not return for two months after that, and when he did he returned with a now sentient mouse that he named Molly.
Alongside this the Mad Hatter is the only member of the White Rabbit Army that is not a devout believer in Natashia and this is tolerated by the Queen because he is devout in his love for Alice who is in turn a devout follower of Natashia.
The Mad Hatter's early life are unknown in a way that is above any of the other individuals living within the world of the story. Since he only speaks with Alice the others have no idea of who or even what he is, and for this reason his mystery only grows as time goes on. The truth of the Mad Hatters existence is that he is a fallen Titan of whom was banished from Olympus following his increasingly chaotic behavior and unwilling to join Chaos he fell to Earth where he would lose himself in the madness of this new world.
Alice found him stumbling drunk in the white paint of a clown outside of the tavern that she was staying. Alice helped him by picking him up, and bringing him to sleep in her room for the night. Alice was at this point no longer afraid of death or pain, so she did this without fear or nervosness. This new behavior was something that Mad Hatter had never known and as such he fell in love with Alice over the course of the two days he stayed with her. When she told him she was leaving for Bravaas to find her sister Mad Hatter said that he was going to accompany her on whatever she was doing, and she felt herself feel safer with that knowledge and thus she allowed him to come with her.
As Alice and Mad Hatter travelled the road towards the village of Bravaas where her sister was staying, they stopped for one night on the road. During the night when Alice came out of their tent she discovered a man tending to the fire, and cooking food. She returned quietly to the tent and told Mad Hatter but he appeared to already know and when he got out of the tent he told Alice that this was Lorten and he was the Mad Hatter's loyal servent.
Rise of the White Rabbit Army
It rose like a brief flood. Not a soul paid any heed to the water moving slowly along the beach. The barely noticed when it touched their feet. So important in their own minds were they that what threat could this splashing water pose to them. Even as it wet their clothes they still did nothing. It wasn't until their friends started to drown that they finally stepped forward. The greedy monsters of Pontus got exactly what was coming for them.
With her plan in place Natashia at first used her body to lure strong and able men into her bed. Once she had them there she convinced them of the intelligence of following her, and time after time these men followed her hook line and sinker. In this way she was able to create a group of the five most skilled men in their fields who she calls her Rabbit Council and stand as the leadership of her growing order. Each of these men along with all those who join the White Rabbit Army believe that Natashia is a god and thus she takes what she wants from everyone including her beginning a sexual relationship with Knave of Hearts, and Knave of Clubs of which during this sexual relationship she would become pregnant despite her attempts to use moontea. Her failure to stop the pregnancy was due to the intervention of the Mad Hatter of whom sabotaged the moontea but also corrupted the birth to give birth to creatures of the soul of Natashia as the Mad Hatter had also fallen in love with Alice and wanted to help her.
Destruction of Braavas
Main Article : Fall of Braavas
With her leadership in place, and a growing number of foot soldiers the White Rabbit Army moved to stage two which was the actual engagement of their forces. Her pregnancy meant that Natashia was definetly feeling a sence of need of doing things quicker then she might have otherwise so Natashia started small with the plan for the army to take control of the town of Braavas which they had decided they would then promptly rename Hopper. Braavos was a relatively wealthy town for the Crater of Pontus, and it had a large enough population which alongside its curtain walls had led to most believing it was not somewhere that could be destroyed quickly. In Braavos the White Rabbit army managed to surround the city and using rebels within the town led by Knave of Clubs they would take control of the entrances letting the rest of the army have an easy access into the city. So with the entries controlled a small piece of the force defended the exit points while the remainder moved in and anyone who resisted were killed on sight, and thus by the time they were finished nearly the entire town was dead.
Fall of the Prison
During this assault the Madd Hatter would lead a small force against the Braavas Dungeons defended by the man of whom would eventually become The Insane Hare and betrayed from within by more rebels of the Knave of Clubs the prison fell quickly and everyone was executed outside of the rebels and those deemed by the rebels to be in line with their work. The Mad Hatter would during the execution take the body of the Insane Hare and remove his body from the prison taking him to his lodgings outside of Braavos where he would experiment on him creating the rabbit form he would become naming him the Insane Hare. One of the survivors of this massacre was a young slave who would become the Red Princess of whom would bow before the attackers leading to her survival, and eventually rise within the White Rabbit Army. During this violent massacre Natashia waded into the city unknown that many of those killed were soon to be added to the Mad Hatter`s entourage of Magi creatures, and she entered to the site of piles of dead, and the burning remains of a once large town. Those that were left were mainly women and children, and it was in this moment that Natashia came to a conclusion.
Founding of Hopper
During there conquests they would kill all the men and in this way only those true to the White Rabbits would remain fighters, while the women would be used to create children who would be the incoming recruits. This took place very quickly as she begin pairing up the soldiers in her army with those women that had survived and the children were swiftly taken in if their parents were dead or they were remained with their mother if she survived. All of this grew quickly, and the soldiers went about rebuilding the damage that had been done to the town, and the town of Hopper was reborn. Where once the town of Braavas was a town for little more then 1200 people the new town of Hopper would hold the thousands that Natashia envisioned would become a member of the White Rabbit Army. During the growth of Hopper the Red Princess would rise to gain her title as she expanded the growth of food through her knowledge of pig farming and this proved a great boom to the growing city and capital of the White Rabbit Army.
From their new capital of Hopper the White Rabbits begin systamatically massacring the nearbye villages and in each attack they brought back more and more wealth, weapons, women, and children back to Hopper which over the course of two years of this increased from some 2,000 soilders to some 7,000 of which 2,700 were White Rabbit soilders. With this growth the number of children indocrintanted into the Rabbit were increasing dramatically and each child was a devout follower of Natashia and the religion of the rabbit. Located far in the west of the crater the White Rabbits were relativly hidden and the brutal nature of their attacks meant there were no survivors to complain to anyone who could help. As they expanded they had basically killed all the men in their area and so the next stop for the Rabbits was to expand into the city of Pentos which had a population of some 8,000 people. This would be their greatest accomplishment and in if they suceeded there army would swell with women, and through these women the next wave of recruits eventually. As the planning for the invasion of Pentos went on it is important to note that the luitenant of the Rabbits in the form of Knave of Hearts was continueing to recruit followers to the religon of the Rabbit and in this way there was a constant stream of recuits coming in from far away Pontus, as well as recruits from Lorath who were being recruited by Luiteneant Cheshire Cat.
Lorten would continue to serve his master Mad Hatter for a time in the Army of the White Rabbit, but when Mad Hatter was travelling the road with a small ambush party they were attacked by bandits and Lorten was struck in the chest by and arrow and killed nearly instantly. As they beat the bandits the rest of the force watched as Mad Hatter calmly walked towards the body of his servent and begin chanting words none of them understood to be any language they knew.
The Mad Hatter continued chanting for well into five minutes when all of a sudden he stopped. As he turned around and walked back to the force they all stood awe struck as a bright light forced its way from the sky and struck Lorten. The light was so bright that none could look in that direction, but when they looked back at the spot where the light had been once it disappeared they saw the body of Lorten was gone and in its place was a strange looking cat. If that wasn't strange enough the cat walked its way towards Mad Hatter and then said the following.

She has to die. Do this thing for me
Murder of Marge Lones
While the planning was going on Natashia became aware that Marge Lones the beloved sister of Pavio Lones was incoming to Pentos in order to visit their brother Hank who was one of the main targets of the invasion of Pentos. Marge Lones was coming with a troop of soldiers alongside her bodyguard lover Francis of House Yendarrion of whom was planning to propose their marriage during their time in Pentos. Natashia ordered her most loyal follower and sister in Alice to deal with the women, and she made sure that her sister understood that this was going to be as a killing could get. Alice went with the Mad Hatter, Meshire Cat, and the Knave of Clubs alongside an assortment of soilders and once they had entered Pentos they followed Marge Lones for a day before ambushing were she slept with Francis Yendarrion leaving Francis brutally killed, and kidnapping Marge and taking her west of the city before leaving her naked in the forest. Once she woke up they left a trail for her towards Pentos and they proceeded to stalk Marge Lones for two days as they drove her farther and farther towards Pentos. When Alice finally believed they had gotten the correct amount of fear out of her she bid Mad Hatter to kill her and leave her body in the most violent of ways in the garden that her family loved so much. The Mad Hatter obliged and dragged her all the way back to the garden where he discovered that her brother had guards searching the area for any signs of where she might have gone. The Mad Hatter waited until nighfall and then brought her to the center of the garden where he proceeded to do the actual act of killing her. Knowing he had to make it appear ritualistic and she had to have pain he proceeded to ceremonially butcher her and then her body parts were left strewn about the ground. With her death secured Natashia had Meshire Cat, and Alice watch the scene unfold as Hank was taken to see the body, and they relayed to her the pain and anguish that was all over his face as he looked at the scene, and all Natashia could think about was how he was next.
| Fall of Pentos|
Pentos was the first real step for us. We took it and there was just no hiding anymore. After Pentos we either won or we died. I didn't plan on dying. My plan was to watch those who had done me wrong fall into ashes.
Fall of Pentos
Main Article : Invasion of Pentos At the end of the Rise of Lucerne there is a small exert where a guardsmen on the tallest tower of Pentos looks out to the west of the city and sees a large army amassed in the pitch of night outside the walls. And as he looks closer he sees the gate opening for them. As the guardsmen rushes to ring the bell alerting the city he is sliced from behind by a man he describes as a skinny man wearing a mask that looks like a strange cat. This could very easily be Cheshire Cat, or Gnat the Cat, but either way this signals that the invasion has gone ahead and with the situation the guardsmen described the chance of success for the rabbits is very high.
