Plot Leader: Jamie
Ruling Character: Loreniel Killan, Opal to Sapphire Black Widow Queen


Plot Summary
Scelt's primary focus, following the Purge, had been to ease relations with the Landens and rebuild what they had lost. The Killan Queens remained in power following that traumatic witch storm and have worked hard for all these years for the benefit of Scelt. Their dynasty had been challenged any number of times in the several hundred years they had comfortably ruled Scelt before the Purge and following it but never had it been in jeopardy until thirty years ago when Daveil Killan was replaced as Queen by the younger, and darker, Eirne Sheane.

By the time Daveil's grand-daughter came of age to rule the Territory Eirne Sheane was firmly rooted in place and unwilling to relinquish control despite the Territory choosing to support Loreniel Killan instead. Loreniel's five years of ruling in Scelt have been less than ideal as she has faced a cell of defectors who have made Scelt a very uncomfortable place to live in; they've raided Landen villages (and less frequently Blood villages) for their goods, wares and resources, and have caused innumerable amounts of destruction against both land and property.

Fear has been mounting that Loreniel is not strong enough to combat her defectors, to protect the Landens accordingly, and to manage the Territory and rumors have been mounting that she is nothing more than a pawn for her grandmother, or the puppet for Scelt's Shield, Gray Jeweled Brogan Devlin.

Power has slowly been shifting in favor of Eirne Sheane as Loreniel’s inaction against the other Queen and in protection of her Territory is seen as a flaw in her ability to rule. Several events have led to the further undermining her power and credibility as Queen.

Honora Devlin, a Queen in Loreniel’s Court, was kidnapped and recovered by the Sheane family. Loreniel Killan had a confrontation with her grandmother, who accused her of being unable to rule the Territory, and the feud blew up publically in her Court with Loreniel banishing her grandmother. Loreniel Killan had her grandmother replaced as the Ruler of the Kilvary Province, instead Aidan Devlin now rules. Eamonn Sheane, Master of the Guard to Eirne Sheane, was caught kidnapping Loreniel Killan and is now being held by the Killan Court as a prisoner.

The Black Widows of Scelt continue to face persecution across the Territory and have become increasingly frustrated that their circumstances have not improved.
