Senator Valtome was given command of the Begnion Central Army in the stead of General Zelgius sometime after the beginning of the war between the Begnion Empire and the Laguz Alliance by order of the Begnion Senate. At this time, the Apostle Sanaki and Chancellor Sephiran have already been dethroned and imprisoned, respectively, and are powerless to halt this action.
His weapon of choice is the twisted light magic Valaura, which he has presumably named after himself, and which poisons anyone unfortunate enough to come under its glare on contact.
Acting as Duke Culbert, he sends his personal army after both the Crimean forces and the Laguz Alliance in Chapter 3-10. He threatens to execute Zelgius for not participating but Sanaki intervenes.
In 4-2, Valtome leads his forces against Tibarn and Elincia (Pelleas if he is still alive), but with the combine efforts of the young fighters, Valtome is KIA (killed in action).
Role in Super Smash Sisters
Valtome appears as an NPC helper character in Super Smash Sisters. When fighting normal combat, he fights unarmed and is fast. When the opportunity is at hand, Valtome can use his Valaura to poison your opponents for a set of time.
