Scions Arden

Ruled by the line of Jolene, first by her, and then hers and Matthias's son Garrity, the official title of Arden (in documents anyway) is simply called Arden. The Forest of Arden refers to the actual territory, and the two parts of the forest are lesser Arden and Greater Arden.

Garrity previously ruled Arden until he was slain during the Return of Julian. It's unfortunate, because there were whispers that he was aging with an unnatural grace. Still, as a dictator, he was the best of the best. Benevolent, wise, but strict and nobody's fool, Garrity outlived some of his siblings, but was slain by evil Elves, under the command of Julian, his grandfather. Word has it that Whitney, his daughter, is not fit to rule Arden and with all the trauma and carnage she witnessed its no surprise that she has turned to drink to bring a surcease from her sorrows. Malina, Whitney's daughter is young, inexperienced, but battle hardened as has a good soul, but many oppose her.

Arden is larger, over the centuries, than ever before. There is a lesser Arden, to the east of the river, and a greater Arden, which is the rest of it. Several cities, some in the trees, some not, some both, are scattered through Arden. Arden is warded by her rangers and a dragon. Arden is considered an ally to the Red Keep of Amber, and although relations have warmed and cooled over the centuries, they have never been at war or even had any incidents since before Jolene founded her House.

Many of Gerard's and Caine's offspring who are not also of House Jolene call Arden home, and even a few others. Crime is lower in Arden than in the Keep, Amberport or any of the surrounding cities. This is attributed to the strict, but libertarian rule of House Jolene, where people are allowed to do what they want, as long as they harm no other. Violators are indentured for a time, beaten, exiled, or in rare cases, executed. Crime is lower in Arden than anywhere else.

Garrity, (deceased) son of Matthias and Jolene ruled Arden. He led two of his surviving sisters and a score of others, including descendants of Finndo, Gerard, Caine and even some werewolves descended from Brand. .

scions%20garrity.jpg ruled from what is called Jolene House. He also lived there, with his frequent mistresses. The House will now need to be rebuilt again. Once from an unfortunate fire, once from being cut down and entirely demolished, at Julian's command and the other due to the original tree rotting.

Whitney, daughter of Garrity. Heir Apparent to Arden. Whitney is currently a prisoner of Julian, and in this hour she has endured humiliation, torture and worse on behalf of her people. If anyone was against her before, they will hear about her incredible courage in the face of Julian, the Gheneshi and Julian's other minions, and people will marvel at her willpower.

Pietro, son of Dante. This scion of Brand's line is about as rebel a son as one could imagine. He did not want to be part of the 'pack' after Dante tried to gather all of the werewolves together. He told the Mad King of Amber, Mal II, something so awful that it took Pietro nearly twenty years to recover from it, after he was freed from the dungeons of Amber. The Red Council tried to approach him as well and they were told a few choice words as well. The Red Council, however, didn't take any action again the renegade. He resides in the Northwest of Greater Arden, drinking and fighting. He is not a nice man, but he never turns anyone down who legitimately needs help.
