The captured archon might let it slip. They might get it from the guards outside the portal they have to kill. Tramennis already knows that Parson has the ability to enter the Magic Kingdom. There are lots of possibilities.

Neither Wanda nor Stanley are "Toolists". Toolists believe that attuned Tool-users are chosen to replace the nobles. Stanley has no grandiose belief. He's just pro-Stanley. Wanda is just following her destiny to reunite the Tools. She has no opinion on Nobility, and her offer to Queen Jillian to join their group is evidence of that.
Toolism is just something Parson invented, first to taunt pre-Decrypted Ansom, and later to hurt Charlie's business opportunities.
There's no reason for Parson to trust Jetstone, and there's probably no way that Stanley would go for an Alliance or truce when he has his opponent in a death grip.
GK suffered heavy losses. They lost their most powerful warlord, had to decrypt most of their dwagons and lost virtually all of their decrypted archons and a lot of soldiers. GK is no longer the formidable force it was at the beginning of battle. And Tramennis can still escape to another JS city and start all over again, and he can disband any remaining JS units in the city to prevent them from being decrypted, thus limiting their gains.
More importantly, GK just learned that there are other players in this "game", that Charlie is taking an active role and probably has to be the focus of their next war. And for that, they probably need allies.
I'm not saying Tramennis and Parson will truce, or even parley. I'm just saying all the pieces are in place to make it reasonable for them to do so.
