Meera Reed → Taken
Meera was born 1898 in the Scottish countryside, daughter to retired soldier and mayor Howland Reed, who raised her not only caringly and educated, but also with all military discipline, wisdom and knowledge on fire-weapons, map-reading and strategy.
When her father was summoned to serve the British army once again, the administration of the Greywater village was left under her responsability. At the age of sixteen, the town was taken with a coup d’etat by Germanic troops, forcing her to run away and separate from her brother, who she believes to be dead.
Hitchhiking through Europe, doing all sorts of small jobs and favours, dealing with lack of money, battlefield enviroment and haunted by the ghost of Jojen’s possible murder, she ends up reaching London, where, at last, the odds may change for either better… or worse.
Please take a look at Meera’s updated profile and new extended bio.

Galbart Glover → Taken
Galbart Glover is the current master of Deepwood Manor in the Scottish Highlands, and head of Glover Foods Inc., the family firm specializing in production of canned foods and preserves.
After the end of his law studies, most of his time has been spent managing the firm, but hardly anybody is aware of the fact that Galbart is also a prolific political writer for socialist publications, under a pseudonym. It’s a well-guarded secret, and one apparently at odds with his demeanor, usually reserved to the point of awkwardness.
His personal ties with the Mormont family go way back, ever since his late older sister Erena married Jorah Mormont of Bear Hall more than twenty years ago. This led to his frequent visits to the Outer Hebrides, and despite their not-always idyllic relations throughout the years, the Mormonts are almost a second family to him.
Brynden Tully → Taken
Born in 1866 to English nobility, Brynden Tully is the younger brother of Lord Hoster Tully and uncle to Lady Catelyn Stark and Lady Lysa Arryn.
In the 1890s, impatient with his brother’s stern rule, he goes to Scotland to join the Lovat Scouts and takes part in the Second Boer War, where he becomes a deadly sniper - called by his admiring comrades “The Blackfish.”
Brynden is currently back in England. Though he has trouble fitting back into proper English society, he is fiercely loyal to his brother’s descendants, especially Catelyn and her children.
Ramsay Friedrich Boelter → Taken
Ramsay was born to Herr Roose Friedrich Boelter, Imperial Ambassador to the United Kingdom, and Henrietta Miller, a maid in his father’s household. Ramsay grew up in his father’s house, though what should have been a care-free life in the idyllic English countryside was marred by Roose’s blatantly cruel preference of Domeric, his legitimate son, over Ramsay.
Roose kept both Henrietta and Ramsay under his roof only to prevent scandal from spreading, and though Henrietta was satisfied with just that, Ramsay yearned for paternal affection. He grew to hate Domeric, and released his anger through increasingly violent pranks on his brother. But it was never enough, and Roose never failed to beat him severely each and every time.
Finally, one Christmas Ramsay slipped poison—-bought off the streets from a shadowy stranger—-into a bag of sweets meant for Domeric. Domeric was a good-natured boy, and shared the sweets with the rest of the family while Ramsay was out chopping wood. When Ramsay returned, not only was Domeric dead, but Domeric’s mother and Henrietta had succumbed to the peddler’s poison. Roose survived, but would require costly, painful blood drawings and transfusions for the rest of his life. Obsessed with avoiding scandal, Roose reported the deaths as an accident, and made Ramsay his legal heir. He then sent Ramsay off to a military boarding school in Germany, finding Ramsay’s presence even more repugnant than before.
Ramsay is now 23, and a Fokker pilot in the Fliegertruppen. His combat style is savage, lacking the aerial grace and technical skill of other pilots, but he’s dead-efficient. His plane, painted blood red, is decorated with the Boelter family crest, earning it the nickname “The Flayed Man.”
Jorelle Mormont → Taken
Only seventeen, Jorelle is the second youngest of the Mormont clan, and the quietest. To outsiders it seems like she’s most likely to follow society’s conventions, and do as she’s told. But she’s a Mormont, and has an iron streak in her - she’s stubborn when she has to be, and when push comes to shove she’ll stand up for herself and her family. She’s not yet fully self reliant - being the second youngest in a large and genuinely loving family has robbed her of that necessity thus far. She has a deep rooted sense of loyalty, both to her family, and the few she calls friends. Life on the island of Lewis has afforded her few chances to make friends outside her sisters, and for that reason she comes across as painfully shy when in the company of those she does not know.
Her cousin’s dismissal from The Times came as a shock to her, and while her older siblings were sent south to find work and support the family, her mother has kept her at Bear Hall.
Maege Mormont → Taken
Maege Mormont is the matriarch of the Mormont family of the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. She has been family head for four years, since her nephew, Jorah, disgraced himself. She spends a good deal of her time running the household and overseeing the Mormonts’ small shipping business.
Family comes first to Maege, something she instilled upon her five daughters from an early age. Her older brother Jeor (before he passed away) would argue that she let her girls “run wild” all over Lewis, but Maege would say that she let them explore and discover what interested them in life, making them better-rounded than children who were forced into overly structured lessons and playtimes.
It was her nephew, Jorah’s, total disregard for family that colored Maege’s reaction to his behavior in the time of his scandal. She would have been able to forgive him if he had come home or at least in some way acknowledged to her what exactly happened. When he didn’t, it was essentially a slap in the face—not only to the Mormont family but to their relationship and all that she’d done for him over the years. While she is quite hurt, more than anything, all she has shown is a stiff resolve to move forward, taking over as head of household and not mentioning his name any further.
Maege is known around the island for being kind and generous with what little the Mormonts do have, and never being afraid to speak her mind, no matter who she might offend. While there are a few who grumble about this and about the forwardness of her daughters’ behavior, for the most part they are accepted and loved on Lewis (whether they are in London is another story).
