As a veteran warrior, he is not afraid of huge battles. However, Kubard is nearly never seen sober. He always evade troublesome matters and have others involved in them instead. He is famous as heavy drinker and womanizer.



Shapur and Kubard are some sort of friendly rivals, as they argue about a king's duties during the Battle of Atropatene. It is mentioned that they were so in bad terms that they always stood at the each end of the line of Marzban when all 12 gathered.

According to Kubard, they never get along. He said that they always quarreled, and when they were drunk, they would proceed from words to blows.


Kubard was possibly loyal to Andragoras at the beginning of the series until he learned of the false news about the king running away. He appeared shocked at first before giving up his duty to fight stating that the king's responsibility is to protect the kingdom. Though Andragoras valued Kubard's skill, his behavior sometimes offended the king and Kubard was removed from Marzban for several times.
