Shields High — House Fortemps Maxim

As patriarch of House Fortemps, Count Edmont de Fortemps is an active participant in Ishgardian politics. A rather progressive thinker by the See's standards, he pushes his peers to welcome outside aid in times of crisis, and does not hesitate to employ the services of foreign mercenaries and adventurers.Admittedly, it was the count's bastard son, Haurchefant, who persuaded him to accept the Warrior of Light and his comrades as wards of House Fortemps, a controversial decision in light of the tumultuous events during the bloody banquet in Ul'dah. Yet it proved to be a wise one in the end, and after learning many meritorious deeds accomplished by his wards—as well as bearing witness to some firsthand—Lord Edmont was inspired to pen a personal memoir entitled Heavensward, which detailed the exploits of the Warrior of Light in the north.

When Ishgard at last began to enact reforms and move towards establishing a republic, Lord Edmont, at fifty and nine years of age, left behind the world of politics, renouncing his title and naming his eldest son, Artoirel, count of House Fortemps.
