Upon first arriving in Coerthas, Alphinaud attempts to gain information from the Observatorium on the whereabouts of Cid's missing airship, the Enterprise. Forlemort proves uncooperative and refuses their request for sky charts.

Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward[]

Forlemort plays a role in the Astrologian job quests, where he is opposed to his nephew's attempts to spread Sharlayan astrology in the Holy See. He reluctantly reveals what become of Professor Mace's party from Sharlayan, having detoured into the Black Shroud to escape marauders.

He is later sought out by Jannequinard for getting support for hosting a symposium on Sharlayan Astrology, and by that, he just sends the Warrior of Light to meet with his uncle. Surprisingly, Forlemort agreed simply because he hopes Jannquinard will make a fool of himself and get him out of his hair. He is later revealed to have been collaborating with Sharlayan agents attempting to extradite Leveva back to the Old World. The missive is later used to blackmail him into into not opposing their plans for a symposium, but he warns the Vault will be far more stubborn than him.



Forlemort is a male ishgardian elezen with gray hair and purple eyes, he has a short beard, and wears a small pair of glasses. He wears a conal hat with a star pattern and a yellow and blue short rob.


Forlemort can be quite rude, unwilling to help those that need assistance. As a traditionalist in Ishgardian beliefs, he disproves of Sharlayan astrology and belittles his nephew in his efforts to spread the teachings around the Holy See. Forlemont is deceptive and cold towards his nephew, seeing him as a pest and willing to have him and his friends killed for his pursuit in foreign astrology.
