The Fomenter is the ancestor to Dismas Mersiv who lived during the Renaissance.
He met Cyprim Shukra sometime after Zekura Raines passed on her blood curse to Thesal Voorat, and they entered a matespritship. The two of them intended to hunt down Zekura and Thesal together, but before they could, some unknown war struck. He was killed in battle, supposedly protecting the land he loved.
Cyprim was the Fomenter's matesprit. The two of them grew close after Zekura broke her promise to Cyprim, with the Fomenter encouraging her to be "proud of her own scars" and offering comfort in a time of uncertainty and grief.
