|教皇 托尔丹 七世|
教皇 托尔丹 七世（トールダン7世，Thordan VII） 是伊修加德正教的最高领袖，也是伊修加德的最高统治者，掌控苍穹骑士团。
- The seventy-four year old Archbishop Thordan VII came from modest origins, the son of a lesser house pledged to House Durendaire. A lover of traditional Coerthan cooking, in his youth, he studied swordplay, and perhaps could have achieved moderate success within high society. However, as the youngest of five, he stood to inherit little, and so with his parents' endorsement he entered Saint Endalim's Scholasticate. He graduated as one of the Trinity and successfully entered into the service of the Holy See, and was quick to take part in the power struggles inside the Vault.
- 74岁的教皇托尔丹七世出身卑微，是一个附庸与狄兰达尔家[译注 1]的小家族之子。他年轻时是一位库尔札斯传统烹饪爱好者。他学过剑术，也许曾在上流社会中小有成就。然而，作为5个孩子中最小的那个，他从父母那儿继承来的遗产很少，于是在双亲的支持下进入圣恩达利姆神学院[译注 2]。他作为3名高位圣职者[译注 3]之一毕业，成功进入圣座，并在不久后参与了教皇厅[译注 4]内部的权利斗争。
- As he grew more successful and influential, he gradually rose within the clergy's hierarchy until he was named a bishop in his forty and second year. However, it was also at this time that he was rumored to have broken his vow of celibacy and fathered a child with a lover. Well aware that such a scandal could be used as a weapon by his political rivals, he made every effort to suppress them until after he was elected archbishop.
- Thordan is flanked by Lahabrea and Elidibus, implying the Ascians have begun to influence Ishgard's affairs as part of their agenda. Though Thordan secretly wants no help from them, he accepted their proposal to learn more about the Ascians and to deal with them once the war with Nidhogg would be over.
- Thordan summons the Warrior of Light after helping Alphinaud Leveilleur overcome the trial by combat to prove his innocence and that of Tataru Taru. After apologizing for both his and Heavens' Ward's conduct and failure to summon the Warrior sooner, Thordan requests a private audience to divulge his dealings with the Ascians. He is indifferent to learn the Dravanian Horde is approaching Ishgard and during the heretics' attack, Thordan meets with Heavens' Ward for final preparations with Lahabrea overhearing. When confronted by his illegitimate son, Aymeric de Borel, over the truth of their city's founding, Thordan explains his reasons and hopes the youth would succeed him. Thordan has Aymeric imprisoned in the Vault so his men can discern who else knows the truth.
- During the aftermath of the Vault compromised, his men assume a primal form. Thordan and the Heavens' Ward depart for Azys Lla aboard their airship, the Soleil, to the Sea of Clouds. Thordan and his entourage wait for the Warrior of Light to kill Bismarck before moving in with the aid of the Ascians to retrieve the Key to Azys Lla that the primal had consumed. With the Key in hand, he flies to Azys Lla, once more evading the Warrior of Light.
- 在教皇厅方面妥协后的余波中，他手下的人们现出蛮神形态。托尔丹与苍穹骑士登上他们的飞船“天阳号”[译注 5]逃向云海和魔大陆[译注 6]。托尔丹与他的手下在依托无影逃走前，先等光之战士杀死俾斯麦，以取回俾斯麦吞噬掉的魔大陆的钥匙。将钥匙拿到手后，他飞向了魔大陆，再次躲开了光之战士。
- Thordan appears at the Aetherochemical Research Facility after the Warrior of Light eradicates Igeyorhm, revealing he never intended to be the Ascians' pawn. He tells Lahabrea that his arrogance towards humans and teaching them the means to summon a primal will be his undoing. Thordan uses the right Eye of Nidhogg that had been kept entombed with Haldrath to become an avatar of Thordan I: The Primal King Thordan. Intending to become a god-king and usher in an age of peace, Thordan executes Lahabrea and absorbs his aether essence before descending into the Singularity Reactor at the heart of Azys Lla to access the power of the trapped Warring Triad. The Warrior of Light and their allies defeat Thordan and the Heavens' Ward (in the form of the twelve knights). As he dies, Thordan glimpses something strange about the Warrior, asking what they are, before disappearing into motes of aether.
- 在光之战士消灭以格约姆后，托尔丹在魔科学研究所[译注 7]现身，透露自己从未想过成为无影的走卒。他告诉拉哈布雷亚，拉哈布雷亚对人类傲慢的态度以及向他们传授召唤蛮神的方法，是自取灭亡。托尔丹通过使用哈尔德拉斯的陪葬品——尼德霍格的右眼化身成骑神托尔丹一世。为了成为神王并引领一个和平的时代，托尔丹在下入魔大陆心脏处的奇点反应堆[译注 8]获取被封印的三斗神的力量之前，处决了拉哈布雷亚，并吸收了他的以太精华。光之战士和他的盟友击败了托尔丹与苍穹骑士（以十二圆桌骑士的形式展现）。在他将死之时，托尔丹窥见了光之战士身上某些奇怪的东西，并在化作以太尘埃之前询问它们是什么。
