Angelo Toricelli was a career soldier in the United States Army. Beginning in 1925 and continuing through the entirety of the Second Great War, he was adjutant to General Abner Dowling.

Toricelli first met Dowling when Dowling was assigned as military governor of Salt Lake City, Utah. When Dowling became military governor of the entire state after the assassination of General John Pershing, Toricelli ascended with him. Toricelli was instrumental to Dowling as a sounding board for ideas on governance of the state.

After martial law was lifted, Toricelli was transferred with Dowling to Ohio. When Dowling received a large portion of the blame for the U.S.' lack of preparedness for Operation Blackbeard, the two were transferred to New Mexico. After the Eleventh Army invaded the Confederate state of Texas, Toricelli and Dowling were both shocked to learn of Camp Determination. While Toricelli was initially dubious about Dowling's plan to take the camp, he backed his superior's play. Upon seeing the horror of the camp, Toricelli changed his mind, agreeing that Determination needed to be shut down.

In 1944, with Determination revealed to the U.S., and General Irving Morrell having split the C.S. in two, Dowling was transferred to Virginia to help General Daniel MacArthur take the Confederate capital of Richmond. Here, Toricelli helped Dowling interrogate Confederate physicist Henderson V. FitzBelmont, the man who'd built the first superbomb deployed in North America.

Literary commentEdit

The Italian c in Toricelli should be pronounced ch as in Monticello, however audiobook narrator George Guidall consistently pronounces it like an s.
