President Mutal is the president of Kronos and therefore the most influential man in the Omphalos System. He contacts Emmerson to explain that General Alma and his soldiers are acting of their own accord, not in line with Kronos, and are attempting a coup d'etat to overthrow Mutal. Alma and his men were frustrated with Mutal for signing a cease fire with the Federation. They saw this action as a sign of weakness; something the leader of the Kronos military could not tolerate.

After the events of Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, Mutal agrees to form an alliance with the Pangalactic Federation to ease tensions between the two organizations.
