How Kubard joined the Tourney

Kubard is a leader who protects his men. He remembers the names of every person who serves in his unit and seeks to personally judge the risks any movement imposes on them. To him, anyone who forgets their ties to his fellow man isn't someone worthy of his loyalty. Despite his reputation as a powerful and sharp veteran of impeccable service, formalities and praise makes him gag. He personally prides "Kubard the Braggart" as his epithet. Combined with his cheery wit and sarcasm, his presence is popular and liked within every branch of the military.

His love for wine and women is also famous; unlike his military record, Kubard openly relishes them. He distinguishes himself from Gieve in his preferences, insisting he only takes his chances on "real women" like Farangis. Once he joins Arslan, he bonds with Daryun.

Famed as the "three-headed dragon" for the scar over his left eye, he is a warrior who disowns his liege due to his conduct at Atropatene Plains. He acts on Saam's recommendation to serve Hilmes. After a hectic turn of events, he meets Arslan's forces and shifts his allegiances to them.

After the victory in the Keep of Saint Emmanuel, he learns of a Czech Arms Dealer planning to sell guns to the Lusitanians. Kubard sets out to stop him, crossing paths with an assassin from Seido, Dairou.
