"My lord is a gentleman of unassailable principles. To assail them, after all, one would first need to locate them."
A fourteen-year-old boy of Ishgard, Honoroit was born to a poor Elezen family on the wrong side of the Brume. Receiving no true education, he was indentured to a merchant at the age of seven. Upon his ninth nameday, however, fortune smiled upon Honoroit, granting him a chance meeting with Lord Emmanellain de Fortemps in the Jeweled Crozier. The wanton socialite and second son of House Fortemps, in his mercy, took the boy in as his ward, and began training him in letters and sums. Honoroit was a quick learner, and soon ascended from courier to bookkeeping aide. Realizing now that knowledge would pave the way to status, Honoroit begged Emmanellain to lend him his books, and it was not long before the lowborn boy caught the attention of Count Edmont, was released from his contract with the merchant, and was officially appointed Emmanellain's manservant.
