The Queen's Dog
Better known under the alias, Akira, he's the co-founder and leader of the 3rd party faction, the Organization.
Most of the time, he walks around in a metallic silver fox mask, which was sealed to his face for his crimes.
Hero happens to know that his real name is Bedad, though he never lets on to Akira that he knows this information. The pair don't get along because Bedad loathes Hero to the extent of purposefully insulting him and playing childish pranks on him. It is difficult to judge whether his erratic behavior is a result of the Taint or if it's simply his personality.
Some say that he was abused by his peers while he was growing up in Thule and that this is what made him so unhinged. He seems to think that he is much more sane and stable than he is, so Hero pities him.
