The bold but wicked Duke of Montikluse. He made it his hobby to imprison knights in his Malmort Tower, leaving them to starve.

He captured Arthurís Sir Tandareis when the latter was defending a maiden named Claudin against a force of Kandalionís knights. Unlike his previous victims, Tandareis was kept alive through the graces of Antonie, Kandalionís sister, and was released three times to attend, incognito, tournaments at Arthurís court, in which he defeated Kandalion.

Kandalion eventually released Tandareis to claim a reward offered by Arthur for his return.
