Mu Tel is a prince of Toonol, and the nephew of Vobis Kan, the Jeddak. Highly popular among the Toonolians, he has aspirations of usurping his uncle - violently if necessary - but his hand has long been stayed by concerns that the people would turn on him if they saw him bathed in Vobis Kan's blood. When his longtime ally and friend, the assassin Gor Hajus, returned from the dead, he helped the assasin's Earthman companion Vad Varo, giving him supplies and a disguise to help him in his quest to steal the body of Princess Valla Dia of Duhor back from Xaxa, the wicked Jeddara of Phundahl.
