History

Early History

Obella Martell4
"Everything changed after the war in France. I was too young to remember it in its entirety but what I do remember of that time is pain. The look on everyone's face as they believed in their hearts that we were all going to die. As the years rolled by it got easier for some to accept what had happened. For others like my uncle their was no peace to be found through the passage of time."
-Obella Martell

Obella Martell was born during the days of the War in France, and this meant that her uncle, and father returned to Lucerne as one of the few survivors of the Battle of Lyons , and her uncle the Lord of House Martell was drastically changed by the experiance. With this the case her father Doran became the defacto leader of House Martell, and it was Doran that begin training his children in the ways of conflict, as he forsaw that war was coming. This foreshodawing of a conflict meant that the three sisters grew very close, and despite the age gap between the three they were all distinctly close, and did almost everything together.

Obella Martell1
"I saw all the others around me partaking in the very thing I knew we shouldn't be doing. I got enough looks to know that had I of wanted I could have been like all the other girls. But I chose a different path, and if that hurt me down the line, well that was just something I would have to live with."
-Obella Martell

Obella spent much of her early life in the Lucernian Academy, and while here she was seperate from the rampant sex that usually goes on in the Academy between the noble children and instead she attempted to learn as much as possible so that she could be as important to her house as she possibly could. While her sisters trained in the dagger as the case was with her sister Dorea, or trained in the use of the sword as her sister Leva did, Obella practised over and over her skill with the Bow. As she moved into her nineteenth year and on the eve of the Lucerne Civil War she was capable of hitting basically any target when she was shooting an arrow form her custom made bow.

The Journey

Main Article : The Journey

Trouble on the Road

Robyn Snow

Sent by Lord Martell Robyn Snow assisted Elia Snow in gaurding the Martell sisters.

You had a different feeling about the land after you heard the words of the honorable Eddard Starke. This was a man who you just knew from hearing him that he spilled out honor, and yet he was telling his horrible tales you just didn`t want to be true.
Leven Martell

With the loyalty of House Starke assured and Eddard promicing to do his best for the rest of eastern Lucerne she would return to Lannistane and back to the boats which would take her directly to Forks. Leven and Dorea were onboard the boat when they left their sleeping sister Obella and went to the top deck. When they got to the top deck it was completely pitch black out, and the only light was the single flame burning beside the captian helming the wheel. Leven would approach the captain and find him with a knife in his neck and bleeding out all over the deck. Reaching for her sword she barely got it out before a dagger narrely missed her head and slammed into the pole behind her. Sliding to the deck she was forced to defend herself as a red masked man charged at her. Out of the corner of her eye she saw Dorea fighting against another man, and she could hear the sound of commotion as the rest of the boat clearly awoke from the fighting. Losing her fight to the red masked man she would finally kill him after he tripped on one of the bodies strewn about the deck, and she would slice his head from his body before he fell into the river (The attacker would later turn out to be Franzal Nighting after Rachel Nighting revealed one of her brothers had been killed by Leven and this was the only instance that makes sence). The crew then broke through the locked door keeping them below and the other man would jump into the river to escape, while the crew moved on and was able to reach Forks without anymore trouble.

Obella Martell3
"In my desperation to find anwsers. In my desperation to discover a perpose to my life I found it. It wasn't a sword, or a battlefield as I had thought. Instead it was a boy. A boy who I knew would turn into a truly great man."
-Obella Martell

In the Journey she wanted desperatly to take part but she was only allowed by her father to join him in the meetings and it was during these meetings that she first met Robb Starke, and when she first caught a glimspe of him she was awe struck. For some reason the two of them could not keep their eyes of eachother, and as their parents met with prince Andrew with whome Obella knew very well from her time at the Academy they were barely able to focus. Eddard noticed his son's attention was on the young girl and told Robb to wait outside, where only a few moments later Obella left the meeting as well. The two now standing outside the tent side by side waited in silence for many minutes until finally Robb Starke begin talking to her, and after that the two couldn't stop talking.

The Divine Lands

Main Article : The Divine Lands

Britt Lancave Wide
If everything we heard about the Boltens was correct then we needed to move on the Divine Lands quick before the Frey's or Boltens did it first.
Hedrik Clegane III.

Following the meeting of the Kingdom of Lucerne, and Lorderon it became clear through those talks, and the talks with the Riverlands, Seagard and others that the Kingdom of Bolten was an extremely menecing actor in the field of Westros. Along the westernside of Westros sat the independant land called the Divine Lands. The Divine Lands had an alliance amongst eachother to defend eachother if things ever came to fighting, and this had allowed them to escape the clutches of larger Kingdoms like Bolten, and the Freys. Communication begin with the Divine Lands after Nicoli Machiavelli would communicate with the leadership of the three city states and from insiders he had planted in the area learned the ways he believed he could get them to the Lucerne side of things.

Grandlen

City States in the Divine Lands Ruler
Grandlen House Grandlen
Jeutenburg House Banner
Koenisburg Theocracy
Ventin Mercentile
Toenisburg Theocracy
Grandlen had a population on par with Gulltown. I didn't have to hear another word about why we needed them in the fold.
Hedrik Clegane III.

Firstly he sent promices of large arms trade agreements with the largest of the towns in the form of Grandlen of which created a strong bond between the two. On top of this he would offer hands in marriage to his eldest daughter in Allenia Grandlen of whom was approaching twenty three but the prospects in Grandlen were not what he was looking for. Lord Grandlen was very much interested in having a large meeting of the Divine Lands, and said that if the Lucernians could put it together he would be a staunch supporter of theirs during the meeting.

Jeutenburg and Ventin

City States of Divine Lands - Maps
Jeutenburg was scared of the Karstarks. It took two letters to realize that they wanted us more then we probably needed them, but even if we could have squeezed them into a more permanent alliance our mandate wasn't to do that so we played fair.
Hedrik Clegane III.

Jeutenburg would be substancially easier to placate as they mainly just wanted protection, and this was dealt with when William Lovie sent a letter to House Banner telling them that the Kingdom of Lucerne would intervene on any conflict which involved Jeutenburg. Nikolas Banner would arrive at Koenisburg after the third letter between he and Lucerne and would be prepared to be very positive towards the Lucernians during the meeting. Alongside Jeutenburg the mercentile city state of Ventin would be contacted as well, and they basically only wanted assurances of assistence in the case that the Frey's attempted to block their trade routes. If the Frey's could not be reasoned with then increased southern trade was their main option thus making them send five members of the Trade Union Guilds to Koenisburg for the meeting.

Koenisburg

Oberyn Martell II.
Oberyn Martell II. showed me during that tournament that honor and knighthood were real. My doubts about the Dragon were extinguished that day never to rise again, and the only fitting thank you I could do now was to swear an oath to his blood.
Britt Lancave

Last to get within the fold was Koenisburg of whom was perhaps the most important of the city states as the long term goal of Koenisburg was to act a major port nearbye The Trident which would alert Lucerne to any problems. Koenisburg was led not by a house as the other states were and instead was a hyper theocracy led by the Voices of the Dragon of whom are led theoretically by the Voice of the Dragon. Communicating with this voice they discovered the voice was Britt Lancave of whom had won prestige in Lucerne during the Nortburg Tournament of 5120. After determing from the council that they would like to be aligned with Lucerne if for no other reason then to make the Frey's less willing to threaten them she would go about making the best deal possible. After negotiations of shipping lanes, and trade was over she knew the deal was signed and simply wanted one more thing. Britt Lancave wanted only one thing in order to pull her to their side and that was for them to send a Martell that she could swear an oath before. This was an easy task and they sent Obella Martell of whom wanted any excuse to travel eastward and see her fiance Robb Starke.

The Meeting

Britt Lancave Cover2
It was rubber stamped and the only thing remaining was to actually get everyone in a room and agree to work together. There were small talks of making the Divine Lands a state, but this went away when the Grandlens made it clear they were not ready for that yet.
Hedrik Clegane III.

The meeting would finally take place following the return of William Lovie III. and his family from their time in Lorderon the second time. Nicholi, and Hedrik Clegane would not return to Lucerne with the rest of the group and instead would meet Obella and Robb Starke in Koenisburg for the meeting. All the parties would arrive for the meeting except Teonisburg of whom obeyed the command of Koenisburg and saw no reason to send more representatives. The meeting would become somewhat interesting when several Frey's made dock in Koenisburg and attempted to join the meeting. Finding Robb Starke inside there was nearly a fight inside the hallway and Robb Starke would leave the hall in order to not make more of an issue then there already was. The meeting would continue and Obella Martell took the oaths of Koenisburg while the others signed papers of alliance with Lucerne thus sealing the Divine Lands as a Lucernian alligned area. The night came and as the Frey's prepared to leave Robb Starke once more attempted to make things better but instead of this he ended up insulting them more when Obella came out, and seeing she was his fiance by the way she clung to him the Freys were further insulted and left more angry and with more ammunition.
