An ambitious and expansionist neighbor of Sethra Lavode and Morrolan e'Drien. His theft of one of Baritt's Morganti weapons led to the war, as detailed in Dragon. His plan in the war was to force the weapon to come into contact with another Great Weapon, and thereby reveal itself as one. Vlad Taltos prevented this.
Fornia was killed during the battle, either as a result of Vlad's amputating his hands, or immediately thereafter by Morrolan or Sethra. It is unclear if he might have been revivified after this, although it seems unlikely.
