Lonato Gildas Gaspard[2] (pronounced /lʊ'nɑtoʊ ˈgæspɑɹ/[key], Japanese: ロナート Lonato) is a character appearing in Three Houses. He is the lord of the Gaspard region and the adoptive father of Ashe.

Biography

Lonato is the head of House Gaspard in Faerghus. In Imperial Year 1173, Lonato found Ashe while he was trying to steal one of the books on his library, and as an act of kindness, adopts him along with his brother and sister. In 1176, Cassandra turned in his biological son Christophe to the Knights of Seiros due to the latter implicating himself in an assassination attempt of the Western Church against Archbishop Rhea, which the Church of Seiros, due to the delicate political climate of the time, covered up and made it seem like Christophe supported the Tragedy of Duscur instead. After his son's execution, Lonato grew bitter against both Cassandra and the Church, while harboring the suspicion that Cristophe's implication with the Tragedy of Duscur was false.

In 1180, Lonato raises his troops in rebellion against the Church of Seiros, bent on revenge for them sentencing Christophe to death under false pretenses. He does not inform his adoptive son Ashe of this, presumably because he does not want to get him involved. Byleth and their class are sent to end the rebellion and succeed in killing Lonato with the aid of Catherine. After Lonato's defeat, Catherine finds a note on his person detailing a plot to assassinate Rhea.

In Ashe's paralogue, it is revealed Lonato's rebellion was influenced by the Western Church in an attempt to weaken the Central Church.

Personality and character

Lonato is a kind and compassionate man with interests in botanics, as he teached Ashe how to make medicine out of plants in the past. He also never moved past the death of his biological son, which made him an easy target to influence by the Western Church.
