Ioder is friends with Estelle and Flynn Scifo. Because the Council originally supported Estelle's ascension to the throne, Ragou enlisted the help of Barbos to kidnap Ioder. After the second encounter with Zagi, Yuri Lowell rescues Ioder from his captor's boat as it sinks into the sea. When the party is arrested and sent to Heliord, Ioder repays Yuri by clearing all charges against him. The group encounters Ioder again in Capua Torim, and talks with him about becoming the new emperor. Ioder claims he can not become emperor because the symbol of ascension, Dein Nomos, had been missing for ten years.
