—— 龙骑导师 雅伯里克
托尔丹 一世（トールダン1世，Thordan I / King Thordan）是伊修加德的建国皇帝。相传，在伊什加德教廷建立伊始便受到了邪龙尼德霍格的阻挠，龙和被龙迷惑的人杀死了托尔丹，托尔丹的儿子哈尔的拉斯举起长枪进行反击。最终戳下尼德霍格的眼球，击退了龙。
- Thordan, first of his name, lived in the time of founding of the city-state of Ishgard during the beginning of the Sixth Astral Era. Two hundred years prior, through Saint Shiva allowing her beloved Hraesvelgr to devour her so their souls would remain together, there was peace between the dragons and the Landlords. Knowing that the source of a great wyrm's power is in their eyes, King Thordan coveted the power.
- With his Twelve Knights, they betrayed Ratatoskr and murdered her to obtain her eyes, consuming them. Nidhogg was the first to learn of this treachery and attacked them in an epic battle. Thordan and four of his knights were slain, with Nidhogg driven off by the loss of his eyes. When Haldrath decided to abdicate the throne in remorse for what they had done, he and three others chose to go their seperate ways. The remaining four knights became stewards of Ishgard and founded the four High Houses.
- 托尔丹王与他的十二骑士一起背叛了拉塔托斯克，将其谋杀以获取她的眼睛，并将这对眼睛吞噬。尼德霍格第一个得知了这次变节的事，在一场史诗般地战斗中攻击了他们。托尔丹与手下的4名骑士被杀，而尼德霍格由于失去了他的眼睛也被赶走了。当哈尔德拉斯为他们所做的事感到悔恨而决定退位时，他与其他3名骑士选择离开这里。剩下的4名骑士成为了伊修加德的管理者，并建立起了四大名门[译注 1]。
- In time, the truth behind Thordan's conflict with the wyrmking was whitewashed and revised by church scripture: King Thordan would be depicted as a visionary who led their ancestors to Coerthas in search of the "Promised Land," with Nidhogg setting upon them as they attempted to build the Steps of Faith. Thordan fearlessly engaged the colossal wyrm in battle that lasted seven days and cost him the lives of half of his twelve knights, but was pushed into the chasm by his men who was enthralled by the wyrmking. Then Thordan's son Haldrath took his father's spear and avenged him by taking one of Nidhogg's eyes. All other details, including what became of Nidhogg's other eye and the time of peace with dragons were omitted from written history, with only the highest church officials being aware of what really happened.
- 随着时间的推移，托尔丹与龙王之间的争斗被教堂的经文洗白和修饰了：托尔丹王被描述为带领他们的祖先前往库尔札斯寻找“神意之地”的先知，而尼德霍格在他们试图建立云廊[译注 2]时袭击了他们。托尔丹毫不畏惧地与这头巨龙战斗了7天7夜，他手下的十二骑士阵亡了一半。他最终却被他手下由巨龙精控的人推下了悬崖。之后，托尔丹之子哈尔德拉斯拿起父亲的长枪，通过夺走尼德霍格的一只眼来为他报仇。关于其他的细节，包括尼德霍格的另外一只眼怎么样了，以及曾经与龙族和平相处的年代都被从史书中抹去了，仅仅只有教堂最高层的人员知晓真实发生过的事件。
- For a millenium, the legend of King Thordan and his Twelve Knights endured as a pillar of faith among the Ishgard's commonfolk, as they suffered centuries of war by Nidhogg and his horde. Archbishop Thordan VII would ultimately utilize the faith in the legend of King Thordan and his Twelve Knights to become a primal.
