Noirtier de Villefort is the sickly, crippled father of Prosecutor Villefort and grandfather of Valentine de Villefort. He is a minor, albeit important character in Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo.
Role in the animeEdit
Noirtier is a caring and loving grandfather, devoted to Valentine and the rest of the Villefort family. Sadly, he isn't capable of doing much due to his age and his handicaps. While he doesn't say much, his mental conversation with Franz reveals that he is quite a knowledgable man, and his actions reveal that he is willing to put a lot of effort into aiding those around him regardless of his physical shortcomings.
