He refused to leave the council chamber, but survived the explosion of the fireblossoms with a permanent loss of hearing. Over the following years he became increasingly concerned with securing marriages for his children, going so far as to forge letters from his son Fastion to eligible potential brides.

He had a number of illegitimate children from earlier relationships, most notably:
- Andus Fitzrion, born before 420, became Skipper-General of AQUA.
