Biography

A contract's a contract. And a Sawad never breaks his word, or may the sands swallow him. Integrity is my people's way.

—  Barnard Sawad

The enclaves of the desert are famed for producing well-trained, disciplined mercenaries, and Barnard is the leader of one such warrior clan. Armed with a slender, crescent blade in his right hand and a dagger in his left, he commands a unique fighting style as graceful as any dance.

To Barnard, a contract is bond. He would sooner die than break faith with a client. His people and the shi'arcs are sometimes rivals, sometimes allies, it all depends on who's paying.

Design

According to character designer Kawano Junko, she was originally approached with a brief for a character "fighting with a sword in each hand". She originally envisioned Barnard in an action pose, mid-sword swing, but eventually adapted him into a silent man with a burning heart inside him in a more stoic, reserved pose.
