Everto de Ivalice Redux
Lord Richter Goltana
Lord of Zeltinnia and Zulta
After the war against the Lucavi, Richter set to slowly rebuilding his country. This proved to be very difficult as his wife Marta was unable to give birth to an heir. In his frustration, Richer began a secret affair with one of his bodyguards, a young lady name Hero. Soon after, stricken with grief and her husband’s blatant infidelity, Marta committed suicide. After Marta died the two wed thus diminishing the Goltana’s status in the court. It was quite the scandal as it was discovered that Hero was pregnant while Richter was still married. Hero gave birth to couple’s first child, a son named Alanzo and two more children followed; another son and a daughter. Hero died soon after giving birth to their daughter. This left Richter heartbroken and he retreated to Zeltennia castle, ruling from afar. He is still rarely seen in Court unless specifically called to attend.
Although not physically present, Richters policital infulence is always felt by the Goltanas, especially Alanzo. Richter was instrumental in the decision to invade and occupy Zulta, and is keenly aware that he is a potential high value target for assasination for Omdalian radicals. He is always under heavy guard for this reason. Richter believes that Zulta righfully belongs to Ivalice on historical grounds, and that there is no need for Ivalice to apoligize or pay any reparations. If anything he believes that it is Omdalia who should apologize to Ivalice.
