The Schism of Ivalice
Patriarch of House Eastweather
William was not born in a major noble house. In fact he was into a barely above common peasants minor branch of an even minor noble house. Fate however has made him the head of house for a major house. William has done everything he can to remain neutral in the court affairs, careful not to choose one side over the other. Anne was sent to the royal court while Violet was sent to the Vilaro court, Anne raised in the Murond Church, Phillip in the Church of the Multitude, his other children free to choose as they will.
William recently severed a stroke and has been in coma for a month now. It is unknown if he will ever wake. The world now look to his children to see where House Eastweather will stand.
