Scroll maker from another land. His pride leaves him unaware of his absolute lack of directional sense.

—  Hortez VII's profile

Hortez VII is a haughty scroll maker from a very wealthy foreign nation. His speech patterns are those of someone born from royalty or the aristocracy, but his arrogant personality is somewhat offset by his natural air headedness and his cute habit of getting lost easily due to his extreme lack of a sense of direction. This eclectic nature usually confounds people he meets.

These places always look more impressive in photos.

During the War of the Champions, Hortez VII came to the Grassland in order to open a scroll making store at Budehuc Castle. However, it took the efforts of the Fire Bringer to bring him there as he ended up in Duck Village, Chisha Village, Caleria and the Duck Village once more before finally being guided to Budehuc Castle by being convinced to take what to most people would be the wrong route.

Hortez VII's country, and Hortez VII himself, are almost immeasurably wealthy, causing him to pity almost everyone for their relative poverty. When he caught Guillaume attempting to steal his antiques, for example, he gave the appraiser some gold out of pity, such was his obvious destitution. His store at Budehuc Castle was a success and he was planning to bring over his three wives from his homeland contingent on that success.

However, following the end of the war, he decided to travel to the Holy Kingdom of Harmonia and open a store there. This he did by taking a ship from Vinay del Zexay, a most circuitous route, if nothing else.



Speak to Hortez VII at Duck Village, Chisha Village and then Caleria. Speak to him in Duck Village one more time, and give him the wrong directions.

Hortez VII has two different ages sourced to him. According to the Genso Suikoden Kiwami Encyclopedia, the Genso Suikoden III 108 Stars Character Guide and the Genso Suikoden III Complete Guide, Hortez VII is 22 years old as of Suikoden III, giving him a birth year of SY 454.

The Marugoto! Genso Suikoden Book, Genso Suikoden III Complete Official Guide and the Genso Suikoden III Complete Strategy Guide on the other hand, give his age as 15, which would make his birth year SY 460. Gensopedia chooses to acknowledge Hortez VII as 22 years old due to it being backed by specific character guides as opposed to more generalized works. His character design and background, including his three wives, could also be considered circumstantial evidence for siding with the older number.
