Isembard Fortier

Isembard Fortier comes from a long line of Lords of the land, stretching back to the Norman Invasion. His brother Garin is the current Lord. Since the Great War and the death of his best friend, Isembard has struggled to find his place in society. In 1923, he takes up a position at Schola as the Protective magics professor and bodyguard to two children of The Council.   He is skilled in Protective magics and Duelling. Besides his formal apprenticeship, he was tutored from the time he entered Schola by Alexander Landry

At the beginning of Eclipse, Isembard has settled into teaching, but the arrival of his former mentor, Alexander Landry. However, a series of events lead Thesan and Isembard to worry about what students are getting up, as well as about the safety of his particular charges. Isembard comes to a sense of himself, a desire to focus on teaching - and to spend as much time with Thesan as their complicated schedules allow.
