Background/History: A native of the planet Gadom, Geobaldi is one of the Santovasku Empire's Colonial Troops, meaning he is virtually a slave who happens to command a whole fleet of battlecruisers. His job is to fight battles the Santovasku can't be bothered to expend their own troops on— a job Geobaldi excels at.
Sent to purge the planet Earth of its invaders (i.e. humans), Geobaldi starts out by annihilating all of North America. Shortly afterward, he finds Kahm and Tetsuya, and ends up fighting a duel with Tetsuya. If he wins, he gets to continue to wage war on the Earth, if he looses, he has to join Tetsuya's effort to stop the war. Geobaldi wins (what did you expect?), but is so impressed by Tetsuya's fighting spirit that he joins with the rebels anyway (he has no love for the Empire).
Leading his fleet against the might of the Imperial navy, Geobaldi manages to fight his way to the center of the armada, only to be warped to the Imperial planet by the sorceress Jihler (along with the rest of the fleet). He then assists Tetsuya in his assault to rescue Kahm from the clutches of her father. Outnumbered and wounded, Geobaldi ends up dying there, surrounded by a sea of slain enemies.
Personality/Motivation: Geobaldi is a fighter, pure and simple. He likes nothing better than a good battle, and has a reputation as a brutal butcher because of it. It's highly likely his attitude is due to his dislike for the Santovasku, and his takes out his anger for them on his opponents. When dealing with other fleet commanders he tends to be flippant and rude, and doesn't express much in the way of courtesy. However, Geobaldi does have a sense of honor of sorts, and is impressed by Tetsuya's dedication and drive to change his fate, no matter how slim a chance he has. Geobaldi also loves Battia, although one wouldn't know it from their first encounter (he slugs her in the stomach, slings her over his shoulder and hauls her off to his quarters), and her death leads directly to his own.
Quote: "I do things my way, and you'll take it and like it!"
"I don't give a [damn] about winning or losing, but I sure as hell like fighting!"
Powers/Tactics: Geobaldi's primary power is his great size and strength. He is tremendously strong and at one point is seen punching a man's head clean off his shoulders. He is also incredibly tough, and takes several pointblank gunshots without suffering much in the way of ill effects. These traits come in quite useful when he's fighting, and with a sword in his hands, he is almost unstoppable.
As a fleet commander, Geobaldi is a much better tactician than most give him credit for. He knows what he is about, and manages to inflict serious damage on the Santovasku Sixth fleet before the battle ended.
Appearance: Geobaldi is a huge anthropomorphic wolf. He stands about seven feet tall, and is broad and well-muscled. His face and body is well-scarred (mute evidence of his lifestyle), and his thick mop of hair tends to hang over one eye.
Geobaldi normally dresses in combat armor, which consists of a breastplate that covers his shoulders and upper chest, pauldrons, vambraces, a scaled skirt, armored boots, and a helmet. He usually adds a cloak to the ensemble.
Designer's Notes: Geobaldi is your basic, run-of-the-mill big,tough alien warrior. He's strong, tough, skilled, hard to kill, and is an unstoppable terror in hand-to-hand combat. He makes a great ally and a scary enemy. Manabe ended up duplicating Geobaldi almost exactly in his series Drakunn. By giving him an eyepatch, and calling his "Dard," Manabe recycled the Geobaldi into a far more well-rounded and interesting character (Geobaldi doesn't have anywhere near the depth of Dard). The only major difference is that Dard is a little stronger, much "nicer," and he wins the heart of the series' heroine.
