After Malos broke free of Amalthus, Amalthus traveled to the Kingdom of Torna to find a Driver for the other Aegis. Zettar attempted to awaken Mythra but failed to do so, prompting Addam to become Mythra's Driver. This, combined with Addam's popularity in the Kingdom, caused Zettar to resent Addam.
The group held a conference with the Tornan King, Zettar, and Amalthus upon reaching Auresco. Zettar attempted to punish Addam's militia for traveling freely throughout the Kingdom, but the Tornan King refused and granted the militia free movement through Torna's borders. The King also attempted to enfeoff Addam as Lord of Heblin, though Addam refused the offer. Zettar later questioned why the King would do this, to which the King shared his belief that Addam would make for a much better king than himself or Zettar.
