- "Improve...upon the Titans' work? Highness, we are the Titans' work."
During the Siege of Spacerock, Antium was in the warlord stack at the head of the Expository Bridge, but collapsed when they received ShockTreatment from Archons. He awoke too late to save Ossomer from capture, but saying "Highness?" and getting up with another warlord may have kept Tramennis from also being collected(this is tentative, only based on a rear-view of the similar brown hair of the warlord who spoke in panel 9 of Book 2 Page 9. After Wanda and Ossomer flew around their hex on Dwagons, Antium held a conversation with the gummed Tramennis, who addressed him by his first name as they discussed Scorism.
After Gobwin Knob's turn was ended, Antium moved to the Atrium, where he was when the forces of Gobwin Knob broke through the roof and fell into the courtyard. Antium attempted to croak Wanda, but was distracted by a displacement cast by Jack Snipe. Antium was croaked shortly thereafter by a stray arrow, and then immediately decrypted by Wanda for use as new leadership for Gobwin Knob.Erf-b2-p51
Antium was promoted to Chief Warlord after his predecessor, Lord Hamster, was captured by Transylvito in the aftermath of the Battle of Portal Park. He was replaced by Parson after the latter was freed by Caesar.
By Jetstone's turn, he was the ranking second-in-command of the force.
