The antagonist of the story; the heir and eventual high priest serving the false gods of Babylon. Always scheming and trying to undermine king Nebuchadnezzar, he plots with the high priest to betray king Nebuchadnezzar’s plan to invade Egypt. The priesthood controls Avil‐Marduk; the crown prince and heir to the throne, through opiates, sequestering, and suggestion. By subtle machinations, they prompt Avil to entice the king to invade Egypt. They then forewarn Pharoh anticipating he will set a trap and kill Nebuchadnezzar, leaving Avil-Marduk to rule as king.

This would ensure the priesthood’s control of the throne. Later, when Adda comes to the temple of Marduk to buy back her son, Labasur confesses that they know the boy’s origins as the son of Nebuchadnezzar. He refuses to sell him back to Adda, and extorts her to bring the profits of the grain trade to offer as tribute to Marduk.

“The Exile” is a three-part film project based on the book of Daniel and the events surrounding remnant Israel’s seventy year exile in Babylon. Following in the tradition of Ben-Hur, this biblical epic fuses together the sub-genres to which “The Passion of the Christ” and “Gladiator” belong. The story carries the gospel message from a unique perspective, the events within it occurring hundreds of years before Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death and resurrection.
