Ignis’ job was to forge chains for Barbatos’ prisoners. One day, as he was working, he overheard a conversation on the other side of his workshop’s wall. Barbatos was asking Lighterium to hide a shipment of Stardust for him inside one of the portals he controlled. Ignis immediately realized that this information was power at its best. After a couple of days, he caught Barbatos off-guard and told him what he’d heard, threatening to tell the enemies of the ruler about his stardust treasure if he didn’t give him a part of it.
Barbatos, who was planning to crush all of his detractors with that Stardust, had no choice but to give in and hand a bunch of Stardust to Ignis, knowing that it would make him extremely strong. The ruler also agreed to promote Ignis and made him part of his counsel. After all, he couldn’t keep a monster with the power that Stardust provides as a simple blacksmith, it would’ve been a waste. Now Barbatos and Ignis are allies, but they both know too well how they became friends, so they’ll never fully trust each other.
