Biographical information
Gender Male
Family Sir Daniel Fortesque (ancestor)

Sir Henry Fortesque was Chris Sorrell's original idea for MediEvil 2's protagonist. He was meant to be a deceased descendant of Sir Daniel Fortesque. He is described as wearing a tattered Victorian cape, top-hat and monocle in an early design sketch.[1] A sketch matching this description can be seen in the released game's credits.


  1. ProBoards "I really only had a few high concept ideas in mind for MediEvil 2. These were: that it could be set in Victorian times, but instead of playing as Sir Dan, you would play as Sir Henry Fortesque, a more recently deceased descendent of Sir Dan's (much like the way they reincarnated the same character in the UK TV show Black Adder). I had a sketch I'd done late one night while working on M1 of Sir Henry wearing a tattered Victorian cape, top-hat and monocle." — Chris Sorrell, MediEvil developers - Q&A; on MediEvil Boards. Published July 24, 2013.
