A map is as precise
As the malms walked in her making,
Yet I fear these feet
Have but far too few between them
May she serve faithfully
Any who would employ her for good,
And shun all who would fill
Her borders with blood
Twelve see the steps taken
By those who heed her humble guidance
Ensure her legacy enduresRoddard Ironheart, In One Are Twelve
As a cartographer, Roddard was the first person to map with some degree of accuracy the realm of Eorzea, which he was reportedly fascinated by. His maps have since been annotated and updated in the more than 70 years since they were first drawn, including the mapping of the three great continents of the world, including Ilsabard and Othard. However, the foundation of his maps themselves has stood the test of time.
During the dusk of the Sixth Astral Era through the Sixth Umbral and into the Seventh, Roddard's descendants continue his legacy as an explorer, with his son Ulger and grandchildren Millith, Nedrick, and Kester becoming explorers in their own right.
