The White Rabbit Army following the capture of the town of Braavas became the army of the Kingdom of the Rabbit, and basically nothing changed for the White Rabbit army except they formed themselves into a kingdom founded out of Hopper.
The leadership take different positions based on their role in the White Rabbit Religion, but the highest levels of the leadership of the White Rabbit army do include Magi creatures such as Mad Catter. Along with this the use of Magi means that a growing number of animals have joined the army, and make a very unusal combination.
The White Rabbit army started as a revenge against a man that had slighted Natashia Cole during her time in Bolten. This led her to form it originally as a terrorist group but as she realized the loyalty that she insighted in people she begin changing it to a cult like army where her every word is followed to the letter. As they expanded out of the city of Pontus the army moved into the village of Braavas where they massacred the male population and enslaved the women and children. This has become their method of action where they massacre all the men and then use the women to produce more children for the army. In this way towards the end of the The Rise of Lucerne the White Rabbit Army has killed much of south western Pontus and is about to sack the city of Pentos.
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 convinsed 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. 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. She is not selfish in her behavior though as she is constantly making sure that everyone is happy and the skill, and equipment of her army is second to none.
Destruction of Braavas
With her leadership in place, and a growing number of footsoilders the White Rabbit Army moved to stage two which was the actual engagment of their forces. 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 while a piece of the force defended the exit points the remainder moved in and ayone who resisted were killed on sight, and thus by the time they were finished nearly the entire town was dead. 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 soilders 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 soilders 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.
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.
Massacre 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 gaurds 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.
At the end of the Rise of Lucerne there is a small exert where a gaurdsmen 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 opeing for them. As the gaurdsmen 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 gaurdsmen described the chance of success for the rabbits is very high.
- It was the nights that made this the worst job in the city. People would laugh when I complained about being a member of the royal gaurd of Pentos. All they saw was the percieved honor, and money that came alongside the position. What I saw was a vast nothing. So here I sat on the edge of the wall as I did night after night. I used to check the horizon every five minutes. Used to make sure the men were on their proper patrols, that everything was as secure as it could be. But now I knew better. Our role was ceremonial now at best. It was as I sat there that I felt a shiver run up my spine, and I could have sworn I heard a muffled cry. I got to my feet and dusted off my pants before picking up my halbard and walking to the wall. When I looked out over the wall all I saw was a vast sea of men. I stood there shocked. I tried to lift my feet but it was as if someone in the swarm had control of my body. I moved my head to the wall and saw the ladders being lifted against the side, and could make out the shapes of bodies all along my side of the rampart. It was in this position that I felt a hand touch my shoulder.
- ``This is the beggining my friend. You have the blessing to see the world changing. It`s happening right in front of you, and you are one of only a handful of people who will ever be able to say they saw. Now sleep my friend your time is over.`` I felt the steel peirce my armor and then everything went black.
- ``The City burned in its entirety. As I walked the streets I watched the men attempting to get what fires they could under control, but I was struck by the death. Bodies piled on top of eachother. Bodies hanging from buildings. There were just bodies everywhere. Pêntos was a city of nearly a hundred thousand people. It had two rings of walls, and was garrisoned by enough men to hold on for weeks. And yet it fell without even sending out a call for aid. What manner of creature...what could have done this.``

Pentos following its destruction wouldn`t have to wait long for people to find out, as only a few days later traders arrived at the city to find it utterly in ruins. Fleeing the city for fear of whatever force attacked it they returned east to the capital in the city of Pontus. When they arrived a massive army of nearly sixty thousand was raised in order to find out what had happened, and they would march under the command of (Placeholder) who had been sent specifically by Pavio Lones who at this point was hysterical in his need to find his siblings alive. When the army arrived at Pentos the destruction they found was unlike anything anyone in the army could comprehend. The entire population had been butchered and poles of Magi design shielded the bodies from being burnt alongside the entire city which had clearly been torched. It was in this state that Pavio Lones arrived in the ruined city, and the moment he walked through the front gates the fires of the city immediatly stopped, and moved in a directly line from him to a point in the center of the city. Following the fire they would find two bodies in the form of

Realizing she didn't want him back she turned towards revenge and begin modeling a group loyal to only her to the point of death, with her eventual goal of destroying the entire Crater of Pontus and leaving Pavio to stand over a pile of skulls before she finally killed him too.

As the White Rabbit grows slowly due to the fact that they are producing soilders through recruitment, and not conquering. The growth will be fast once the children that are being born begin to come of age, but this will be a period before this happens. While they have waited for this to come the relatively small core force of some 2000 soilders have become increasingly elite as they dont lose many members and their armor, and training are exceptional. But this force isn't enough to take control of a city the size of Pentos so The White Queen returned briefly to Pontus where she was albe to menipulate a few Magi skilled in conjuration to return to Bravaas with her, where they would be used to summon foot soilders loyal to their Queen. These summoned troops come in many flavors of which each serve a different purpose.
