Additional Information

Magnus Baltar is an agent of an unnamed female Quorum of Twelve member on Kobol whose aim is to remove the Thirteenth Tribe from Kobol, circa 4000 BCH.

Baltar kills Delegate Michael Tigh after the Quorum's decision to immolate Pythia for her crimes of herecy, which prompts a conflict between members of the polytheistic Twelve Tribes and the atheistic Thirteenth. After Tigh is resurrected, Baltar continues plotting his attacks on the Thirteenth by destroying the local resurrection facility and attempts to kill Tigh a second time. Tigh, however, escapes death by killing Baltar instead—but at the cost of losing Pythia, who could not be resurrected (Battlestar Galactica: The Final Five 1).
