Sir Furt was described as having a beautiful face of a nobles and wore well-made clothing that befitted a noble's status. In the Anime Sir Furt is a blonde haired man styled with curls at the sides of his head. He also possesses a thin mustache over his lips. Wearing a green jacket and an emerald studded ring on his left ring index finger.
Furt appears to maintain a delusional view of noble pride. Despite his loss of status, he continues to maintain the facade he his family has not lost their status. Furt would rather lose money than risk losing his pride as a noble. He erroneously believes that the purchases that he buys, mostly expensive trinkets, are an 'investment' to the family's future to show that they had not given up as nobles. However, it's just a display of vanity and his inability to accept reality.
Sir Furt was a fallen noble after the ascension of Emperor Jircniv to the throne, who stripped away his family's nobility. Even so, he and his wife continued their lavish lifestyle as nobles and fell into debt. Their only source of income was through their eldest daughter Arche, who was forced to become a worker, desperately taking up jobs after jobs to repay her family's debt. It was then she joined Foresight led by Hekkeran Termite to take on more co-op missions.

When Arche later returned home she found that her father had once again spent her hard earned money to buy an art piece. She scolded her father for wasting money as if they were still nobles. He became furious at her tone and reminding him of the hard truth. He wrongly believed that his purchases were 'necessary' expenses. His daughter seeing no use to reason with him stated that she would no longer be sending money to them and will be taking her sisters with her. Angered at her defiance and disrespect, the older Furt was cowed into speechlessness by Arche's intense stare.
Sir Furt was last seen arranging receiving another loan, probably his last, by a money lender. When inquired about the whereabouts of his daughter, Furt replied that he couldn't care less, stating that she was ungrateful, just because she earned a little money. He stated the next time he saw her he would teach her what being an aristocrat was about.
Maruyama stated on his website that, after the money lender liquidized the family's assets, Sir Furt resorted to selling both of his younger daughters, Kuuderika and Ureirika, into slavery to pay off his debt.
Given how his dept collector had already made plans to liquidate his remaining assets and collected it to settle his debt and him having resorted to selling his remaining children into slavery to pay off his remaining debt, its likely that he and his wife are now completely ruined due to no longer having any financial assets or way to make any income whatsoever to even support themselves or their "proper" lifestyle any longer.

Mass for the Dead Arc

Unlike his mainstream counterpart, the head of the Furt household finally came to the reality that his family were no longer nobles. This was due to the harsh revelation of his eldest daughter’s death when she was killed in the Bloody Emperor’s plot. Her death was not in vain as her services to the emperor were paid to her family and the news of her demise shattered her father’s illusion. Using the money Furt got his family out of debt and also became more financially wiser.
After an associate informed him that Marquis Blumrush was seeking a new wife, Furt decided to have his daughter try to be selected for the bride recruitment to not only give his remaining daughters a better life, but also marry his family back into noble society and use the marriage to take revenge on the emperor. After his daughters took the bride test in Blumrush’s estate, they were on their way back home via carriage when they were attacked by bandits. Furt managed to escape being killed as his horse was cut from the coach and its reins entangled on his arm. He was dragged away to safety and by the time he returned back to the coach he found the bandits gone and his children missing.
The former noble remained in Blumrush’s territory with many families who’s relatives were taken to get some official response. He was interviewed by the protagonist and Blue Roses told them of the events that transpired. Though he was promised by the adventurers he would be compensated for sharing his testimony, the man only wished to have his daughters back.
Abilities and Powers
Once a noble, Furt and lost all influence though continues to keep the image of a noble even at the risk of falling into financial debt.
Furt's wife appears to have the same views and enables his behavior of falling into more debt.
Despite Arche being the main bread provider in the family, he shows no appreciation or gratitude to her efforts to support him and his wife. For instance, he continues to spend her hard earned money on whatever luxurious "necessary" item required to show his "status" as a Nobleman. He has even shown to insistently and stubbornly reject his daughter's constant attempts to tell him of the severity of their situation.
Instead, Sir Furt would emotionally burst into arrogant, self-delusional rants and speeches about how they should be proud of their bloodline as nobles and should not give in and "admit" defeat to the "false Emperor." He touted that they should continue showing their "pride' as aristocrats, despite the obvious loss of their fortune and gradual declining financial savings due to his "necessary" spending on expensive non-essential luxury items. It was all done so to prove to his fellow nobles that the Furt family "was not admitting defeat".
This in turn has resulted in a highly tumultuous relationship between him and his eldest daughter due to Arche being the only one in their family fully aware of the severity of their situation. Her constant attempts to make her father see it and the errors of his ways have only served to anger him further, resulting in their relationship worsening due to her father's continued delusional clinging to their past identity as a noble family.
Eventually their relationship was shown to have degraded to the point that Arche had already began making plans to abandon him and his wife to live with her younger sisters without them. She went out of her way to openly declared her plans to her parents before leaving for her final job. Despite this revelation, Sir Furt was shown to have completely ignored or simply refused to believe the sincerity of Arche's plans to leave him and choose to simply believe her to be an "insolent, ungrateful girl." He had even made it his plan to scold her and teach her "what being an aristocrat was all about" when she came home.
Kuuderika and Ureirika are Sir Furt's youngest daughters. Despite being family, however, he was willing to sell both of them into slavery to pay of his debts after his assets were liquidized.
James is the Furt Family butler and has served them for many years. However, even he is unable to control his master's excessive spending and putting the house under more debt. After Sir Furt lost all of his remaining assets and the disappearance of his eldest daughter and the selling of his two youngest daughters to slavery, its likely that James abandoned him and his wife.
The man responsible for his fall from grace, Furt holds nothing but hatred for him due to having taken his "rightful" power and place as a Noble. And despite his obvious incompetence, Furt believes that once the emperor is dead, the Furts will be able to regain their former status and thus foolishly and delusionally still clings to his "Pride" as a Noble.
- Even the moneylender found Furt to be despicable due to his inconsiderate behavior towards his hard-working daughter.
- The scene in which Sir Fut meets with the money lender is never shown in the Anime.
- In the Anime Overlord II III Complete Art Book, it shows Furt having his ring on right hand rather than his left hand as in the Anime.
- (On Jean Sharlu's Glasswork): "As aristocrats, if we can't even purchase things like this, we'll become the laughingstock of everyone."
- (To Arche): "As long as that piece of shit upstart dies, our family can instantly gain back its status! Members of our family have been nobles of the Empire for over a hundred years. It is absolutely unforgivable to end our line. This is an investment for our revival! Also, this display of power is to show that fool that we haven't given up!"
- (About Arche): "Honestly! It’s about time to let her understand her insolence! I need to teach her what being an aristocrat is all about!"
