Now when Kronus was come to the palace, there came to greet him, a general which
was made the First Councilor of War to Seti-Kahn, whose name was Markus Tobias; a
man of fearsome presence, wearing upon his cruel visage a great many scars.
Summary: In the empire of Drakonia during the days of Kronus Maximillius, Markus
Tobias was the First Councilor of War under the Supreme Commander, Seti-Kahn. His
appearance was intimidating and gruesome, as his face was badly scarred from wounds
acquired in battle (3:23:48). As the Chief Adjutant General (3:24:13), Tobias oversaw
the coordination of all major military operations. He and Seti-Kahn shared a mutual
hatred for Kronus, whose military cunning and brilliance had earned the favor of
the Emperor (3:24:61). Tobias helped Seti-Kahn conspire against the career and life
of Kronus, but their efforts were never successful.
And every man did also laugh save Seti-Kahn and Markus Tobias, for they were filled
with rage. For it was clearly evident that the Emperor favored Kronus above themselves,
and they resolved to murder Kronus in subtle fashion.
