Barnabas-Basil Foulty is the majordomo of Corvo Bianco, both estate and vineyard, who takes care of everything and oversees any work being done. He will play any deck and at any difficulty level when asked to play gwent.
Barnabas-Basil Foulty has been a majordomo for most of his career, having served at the Kniebihly family manor, and for Admiral Rompally in Nazair before becoming the majordomo of Corvo Bianco. Foulty comes from a long line of majordomos taking after both his father and grandfather, however, the one to start this familial tradition was his great-aunt, who had apparently been a hard and focused woman, and worked her way up from chambermaid to majordomo.
Journal entry Edit
- Barnabas-Basil Foulty, the majordomo of Corvo Bianco, was a gentleman’s gentlemen if there’s ever been one. His whole life he had served distinguished nobles - the Kniebihly family, for example, or Admiral Rompally, for another – for he would never tolerate an employer who detracted from his personal dignity. Since Barnabas-Basil remembered the times of Monsieur Bolius and Baron Rossell, he was a wellspring of anecdotes about the vineyard’s past. He knew every corner and every secret of Corvo Bianco. An excellent administrator, he offered a wealth of good advice concerning the modernization and management of the estate.
- Geralt could not have hoped for better help. One could even say that, by entrusting Corvo Bianco to the hands of that marvelous majordomo, Anna Henrietta had given the witcher the most beautiful present he’d ever received, for a home without someone capable to care for it is no home at all.
