Smart writing to have two characters with 'Dan' in their name to keep you guessing about which one would turn out to be the Mask agent.

The March 19 scene identifies Fyodor Danilov as the Maskirovka agent working with Tibbetts.  Danilov apparently did not have any contact with Ssu-Maa Kane, though Kane and Tibbetts worked together.
"We have made of New Avalon a towering funeral pyre and wiped the Davion scourge from the universe.  Tikonov, Chesterton and Andurien are ours once more, and the cheers of the Capellan people nearly drown out the gnashing of our foes' teeth as they throw down their weapons in despair.  Now I am made First Lord of the Star League, and all shall bow down to me and pay homa...oooooo! Shiny thing!" - Maximillian Liao, "My Triumph", audio dictation, 3030.  Unpublished.
