Tess Greymane is a beautifull women, and this beauty has made her the suiter of many eliegable bachellors throughout the western half of the KIngdom. She has always been reluctant to persue these men as she sees her disease as a curse that anyone would be too horified to stay for.
Tess Greymane was born the second of Genn Greymane's two children and would be born many years after the birth of her brother and her father was also old at the time of her birth. Following her ceremony of the Wolf, Tess was pushed by her family to find a suiter for herself so that she could have children and further grow the House. This became difficult for Tess since she felt like she was lying to everyone she met because she couldn't tell them about her condition. Ryan would return to Hillsbrad on his seventeeth birthday where he would rejoin his family, but also would becomec close to Tess Greymane of whom he found extremely intriguing and as the first boy to ever treat her with true kindness she also came to be quite enamored with Ryan.
Ceremony of the Wolf
Ryan would return to Hillsbrad on his seventeenth birthday where he would be extatic to rejoin his family of whom he had not seen in some time. Tess Greymane had never left, but was feeling extremely isolated following her ceremony of the Wolf and the fact that her family was telling her that they needed her to marry which was something that she was completely not ready for yet. The two would first meet at the Market of Hillsbrad where Tess Greymane went to every week with her uncle Viktor Greymane of whom she felt a connection to since as a bastard he was not a sufferer of the disease of Worganism, but also because he was the only one she had ever met who didn't treat her differently due to her name. For Ryan's part he was trying to get to know his siblings again and accompanied his sister Rosa and her husband to the market where his sisters husband's family owned a stall at the market. The two would get to talking as Tess had not seen Ryan since he was ten and they were going to school together at the Temple of the Dragon in Hillsbrad and finding the conversation came easy with Ryan she would not put up walls with him the wa y she did with most, and the two found themselves drifting in the market together.

| The Meeting of the Western Lords|
My father made sure I knew three things going into that meeting. Firstly I was to be as rude to the Greymane`s as I could. Secondly I was to try and talk to the Brents and get a diologue going between our two houses. Finally I was to make it extremely clear that we would under no curcumstances assist William. Well atleast I talked to Franklin Brent.
With William Lovie III. leaving Lucerne for the event that would become later known as The Journey the rest of the Kingdom became increasingly positive about his actions, but also throughout the Valley of Lucerne there was significant discussion on what to do as the previous time someone had moved against Bill Lovie it had resulted in The Plague. In the city of Hillsbrad the Arch Lord in House Greymane would call an assembly of all of his vassals of which included every major house in western Hillsbrad without exception and without ability for the houses to decline invitation. Arriving in Hillsbrad the meetings began with Genn Greymane talking of the continued consequences of them allowing the current King to wield unending power, and that their only chance of survival was to find this William Lovie III. and help him achieve victory. Vincent Godfrey would openly support King Bill Lovie and said as a warning to all those around that the last time anyone tried to resist him they were destroyed in The Plague. Franklin Brent would stand on the other side openly speaking of supporting William , and these two would continue to argue for minutes as other lords stepped in siding with their respective lords, and this continued for some time. Demi Snow would stand up during this fighting and state that her family was one hundred percent behind William and was going to send forces to assist him immediately, and this information shocked the other houses as everyone had assumed that they were not going to do anything like they always did. Still without her Lord father`s support she would during the meeting commit to sending one hundred men immediately with the larger force being sent by the Greymane`s and after this promise there was little that her father could do to turn against it.
With the support of House Crowley the movement of some of the houses would change as all the Crowley loyalists quickly jumped on board with this plan as most had wanted to do this but didn't due to their belief that Vincent Godfrey would never have supported this.
Demi Snow following the ending of the meeting would take to staying near Andrew Garfield of whom accompanied her back to her families estate. Spending some time there getting the one hundred men she had promiced she would leave shortly after and return with Andrew to the assembling party outside of the eastern gate. By this point hours later her father learned of what she had done, and left the Crowley castle hours west of Hillsbrad and attempted to return to Hillsbrad. Demi realizing that her father was going to do something like that left with the hundred men of House Crowley ahead of the main Hillsbrad force heading for Forks.
Demi Hill Marries
Following the arrival of the Hillsbrad force in Forks Demi Snow would continue with the next step of her plan when she handed a letter of forged consent of marriage to Andrew`s father Harron Garfield of whom knew that his son desperately wanted to marry Demi, and knew that the match was perfect for his house so he jumped at the opportunity. Realizing that she couldn`t return unmarried or else her father would put an end to her scheming she persuaded Andrew and his father to have the ceremony in Forks so that she could truly be a part of their family during The Journey. Following her persuasion the marriage happened with the large Dragon Temple of Forks and Demi Snow became Demi Garfield and was now protected so she believed from the actions of her brother Dexter.

With the Invasion of Westbridge a complete victory the army of Lucerne begin trickling back and when they arrived they learned of the death of Genn Greymane of whom at his very old age had finally died. The Funeral would be attended by many in the Kingdom including the King himself of whom travelled to Hillsbrad with his two sons, sister, and cousin Emma. Arriving in Hillsbrad the funeral was also a moment to hand over the reigns of Hillsbrad, and the Arch Lord position that it held to Liam Greymane of whom had also been a loyal vassal of William during the Journey. Following the funeral Hillsbrad would host a tournament in his honor, and in honor of the new Arch Lord Liam Greymane in the form of the Hillsbrad Tournament of 5133. During this tournament the fighters were decided by Liam to all be unlanded peasents of whom would be knighted following the tournament. The tournament brought many colorful men to the city, and in the end the top three were all knighted as a show of honor to their determination. Before leaving the city Liam Greymane did discuss the recent Battle at Castle Stragnarax, and William would openly state that the defences needed to be stronger, and that no expenses were to be spared in defending the west.
