|Behind the scenes|
Odret 177 was a Yeerk who, while loyal to Visser One, had twisted the truth and appeared to Visser Three as a representative of the Council of Thirteen. He was given Tobias as a host, and lied to Visser Three that the Council had rejected his proposal to engage in open war on Earth, while in reality it was Visser One who had told him to maintain the slow infiltration. He was soon suspected of his treachery by Visser Three, who threatened to revoke Kandrona Rays. Under duress, Odret revealed the truth, but was subsequently killed, along with Tobias, for betraying his commanding Visser.
