Mortimer (Mo) Folchart, also known as "Silvertongue" or "Bluejay," is a character in the Inkworld trilogy.
Mortimer is described as a very tall man with dark hair and brown eyes. This is because his character is based on the actor Brendan Fraser, who will play Mo in the movie.
Mortimer Folchart, or "Mo", as known by Meggie, is a bookbinder from our world. He has the power to read objects and people from books into this world simply by reading aloud. Inkheart sees him as a father to Meggie, his 12 year old daughter. His wife, Resa (Teresa), was lost in the Inkworld some nine years before the events of Inkheart. Mortimer was reading aloud when he accidentally read Capricorn, Basta and Dustfinger into our world, although in exchange Resa and the family's two cats vanished. He had never read aloud since but after he is betrayed by Dustfinger, he is forced to by Capricorn.
