Fort is a product of a vastly complicated phase of the Tosian/York worlds. Raised in the The City of New Wall on the Merchant World, he became an adventurer of great note. Serving as an Crowned Bard for the Merchant World, he was a sort of corporate bard. A celebrity in a magical and sword and sorcery age.
He has a connection with animals that is uncommonly powerful even for those studied in druidic arts. He has a particular affection from foxes and has often been seen in the company of the Primal Fox.
He is widely considered the brains behind the Palace Commons and has served as the Leader of CHAD. He rarely tries to deny it but anyone who deals with Fort and Lop learn that Lop is certainly the prime mover between them, and Fort is humorously pleased.
