- Tetrarch a.k.a. Second in Command of the Sacred Band of Stepsons: In the Sacred Band of Stepsons fictional universe and the Thieves' World shared fictional universe, the billet of Second in Command of the Sacred Band of Stepsons has been filled at various times by Fox, called Critias; Ace, called Straton; and Stealth, called Nikodemos. Since the commander of the Sacred Band doesn't sleep and heals from mortal wounds, the task effectively serving as second in command in a mercenary unit commanded by an immortalized warlord is a demanding one. Critias takes up the post soon after Tempus inherits ten Sacred Band pairs from Abarsis and augments them with thirty single mercenaries, forming the Stepsons. When Critias is summoned upcountry to fight in the assault on Wizardwall at Tempus's side, Straton becomes the interim commander of Stepsons in Sanctuary, responsible only to Tempus, and holds this post intermittently over the next five years, while Critias serves directly under Tempus throughout the Wizard Wars and during the Mygdonian campaign, until Tempus releases his fighters from service. When Tempus reforms the Band after securing a new base of operations on Lemuria, Critias takes up his old post, recalling the best of the the Sacred Band of Stepsons and 3rd Commando to active duty, including Straton and Niko. After the Battle of Sandia, Tempus promotes Nikodemos to serve as his hipparch and second in command and makes Critias his tetrarch and executive officer. As the Band grows from 50 Stepsons to the elite 360-strong cadre of Lemuria's armed forces, absorbing the Theban Sacred Band and the 3rd Commando and hand-picked shock troops, requirements for the second in command grow apace.
