Mardoc is Zephiel’s greatest teacher and confidant –having been tending to him since he was a child. Having learned of a plot from the former King to assassinate Zephiel, Mardoc had helped save Zephiel’s life. Mardoc became an enemy to the King due to foiling his assassination attempt, but due to a plan Zephiel had formulated, the King was murdered. Despite having deep loyalty to Zephiel, Mardoc could not stop the new King running rampant after his father’s murder, eventually leading to his defeat at the hands of the Allied forces.
