Natashia Constantine is the daughter of two poor commoners from the Ostrogothic farmlands of Anatolia. Natashia would become one of the most important women of the realm after she would become the wife of the current Emperor of Byzantine Tony Constantine IV.

Natashia Constantine was born to extremely poor Ostrogoth farmers in the farmlands to the west of Constantinople. In these early days she was greatly effected by her father's hatred for the Turks of eastern Anatolia, and this infected the mind set of Natashia, and her other siblings. Natashia would suffer her next great pain when her mother and brother were killed and while the truth of the matter was that her father had killed them in a fit of blind rage she was convinced by her father that they had been killed by Turks and thus her father would send her away to Constantinople with her elder brother where he told her she would be safe from the violent rapists that he had convinced her were the Turks. Natashia would make her stamp on society when she through her high intelligence, and charisma became known on the streets for her beautiful voice and as her name became spoken in the court she would be taken in by Queen Mella Constantine as a member of her ladies. In this position she was constantly placed in the position of being constantly around Tony Constantine IV who everyone knew was going to be the Emperor of Byzantine when his father died, and it was in Tony she saw a troubled young man who was looking for something to believe in and more then that she saw a man that she could mold into the tool of her vision. In this way she began subtly creating a relationship between the two which became sexual quite quickly, and with this sexual element she began corrupting his belief system in regards to the Turks of whom Antonio had originally had no real dislike of but as she begin to whisper in his ear he was increasingly corrupted to her beliefs. Eventually the two fell in love and became married but in between this she manipulated and corrupted him into his current racist beliefs regarding the Turks of Byzantine and beyond. Natashia Constantine would become the primary reason behind the Turkish Night of Tears as she used her Ostrogothic contacts, and control over Antonio Constantine to push for the massacre and it was her efforts, and manipulation that really pulled everything together. Following the Turkish Night of Tears it would be Natashia Constantine that poisoned and weakened Julian Constantine III. in order to make sure that Antonio Constantine her betrothed at this point continued to rise to become the future Emperor of Byzantine of which she secured when she eventually killed Julian two years later. Natashia Constantine would give rise to her two brothers when she had Antonio name them counts of two turkish held titles in the Aegean Dutchy and in this way Vitiges, and Mitiges rallied a large Visigoth force to their side and invaded the Aegean Islands destroying the two turkish counties and creating their own houses and counties from the ashes.

Characteristics

Personality

Following her coming together with Antonio Constantine her fathers coruption of her mind would lead to her becoming increasingly menipulative and this menipulative personality became her almost overriding personality trait. Natashia Constantine has a gentle personality when at rest from the menipulations and mind games she has become obsessed wtih playing and it is this personality that is most clearly shown around her children, and Antonia but for most this is not a side of her that you would see.

Turkish Night of Tears

Byzantine Turkish Rebellion

Main Article : Byzantine Turkish Rebellion

The Byzantine Turkish Rebellion
I am not sorry for what I have done. I may have failed to stop you but I die knowing I did everything I could to try and stop you. All those cowards who stayed silent will soon wish they had tried as hard.
Natashia Constantine Cover3
I told you they were traitors. My father lies dying and they have called their armies. What does that show you?
Antonio Constantine IV.

Philipicus would be recalled to the capital following the death of his father Julian and once there he would swear his loyalty to his brother and would join his brother in fighting the Byzantine Turkish Rebellion. Following the death of Julian Constantine and the rebellion of the Turks the situation was spiraling out control with the Turkish rebels having control of three themes and contesting two more leaving the forces of the Sons of Constantine backed into a corner and with the Turks besieging several cities throughout the empire Antonio's retribution had to be quick and decisive in order to stop the Turks from gaining victory. While the armies of Byzantine rallied it would be Natashia Constantine now standing as the Queen of the Byzantine Empire that would take control of one area of the conflict in the Aegean Islands when she would gain the permission of her husband to regain the Theme by whatever means she found neccessary. In order to do this Natashia Constantine would give rise to her two brothers when she had Antonio name them counts of two turkish held titles in the Aegean Dutchy and in this way Vitiges, and Mitiges rallied a large Ostrogoth force to their side and invaded the Aegean Islands destroying the two turkish counties and planning to create their own houses and counties from the ashes.

Fighting in Trebizond

Duccia Constantine2
Go to Trebizond my brother. Go there and secure that theme for us. Secure it and then make all haste to Anatolia.
Antonio Constantine IV.

After having sworn his loyalty Phillipicus Constantine III. would be sent by his brother to parlay with the Theme of Trebizond where the leadership of the theme was leaning towards the support of the Sons of Constantine but was reluctant due to the overwhelming population of Turks within its borders. Arriving in the Trebizond capital of Trebizond he would meet with the Doux in the form of Amulius Komnenos II. and the two would spend hours talking with Phillipicus showing great skill in understanding what Amulius needed and thus offered himself up for marriage to Amulius's daughter, and also offered to lead a non Trebizond army into Trebizond and crush the Turkish population of the Doux. Agreeing to both Phillipicus would marry Duccia Constantine in a short ceremony and following having their bedding rights the two would spend a few hours together where Phillipicus promiced to keep her safe and always protect her and despite having only met hours earlier they would form a bond and when he left she would say that she would miss him. Following this wedding Phillipicus would rally a force of some four thousand provincial troops from Niccae, and nearly five thousand more volunteer troops from Trebizond and using these forces entered Trebizond and basically went from town to town, village to village massacring the Turkish population of whom initially put up little fight but resisted heavily in the county of Chaldia where the Turkish Metropolitan's Kazim Ogri, and Umur Sadik rallied their towns in defence.

Battle of Samsun

With Phillipicus having all but destroyed the Turkish population of Trebizond it fell to two areas in the form of the counties of Samsun, and Malatya to hold out as streams of Turks fled eastward into their counties and it was at the town of Samsun where the Turks would rally their forces and prepare for the arrival of Phillipicus.

Battle for Anatolia

Main Article : Battle of Polybotos

I wonder if you believe my father deserved to die that way? Did my father who had served his entire life loyally to your father deserve to be dishonored that way? You did things to him that mean he may never go to heaven. Did he deserve that?
Ehli Uzer

Following the collapse of the Turkish fronts in both the Aegean Islands, and Trebizond the main wave of Byzantine attack came against the Turks in Anatolia where they had placed the Sons of Constantine city of Polybotos under siege, and it was here where the major Battle of Polybotos would arise. Salik Uzer would be executed alongside his son Tarkan and dozens of prominent Turkish nobles and commanders following the disastrous Turkish defeat at the Battle of Polybotos, and following his execution Salik would become the new head of House Uzer and led the broken turkish forces back to Adana.

Battle of Adana
With the fall of this city we paint our destiny in the stars. The Turkish traitors are no longer a threat to us. It is our time. It is the time of Byzantium now.
Antonio Constantine IV.

Ehli Uzer would be within the walls of Adana when the armies of Byzantine arrived following their victory during the Battle of Polybotos where the Turks under her father had been defeated nearly completely and she would support her brother as he led the defense of the city and refused to leave the city even as it became clear that her brother could not succeed at successfully defending the city. During the Byzantine Turkish Rebellion Phillipicus would lead a cohort of troops into the fighting and took part in the sack of Adana where he would rape Ehli Uzer and planned to kill her but was interrupted by his brother Antonio of whom kept Ehli safe feeling regret for what he had done.
