O Sword Saint Od, with Balmung the divine in hand, repel the blight
— A poem composed by a Grannvale villager

Od (Japanese: オード Odo), dubbed the "Sword Saint" (Japanese: 聖剣士 Holy Swordsman or 剣聖 Sword Saint) was a member of the Twelve Crusaders, the original wielder of Balmung and the founder of the Kingdom of Isaach.

Biography

As with the other Crusaders, Od was a warrior fighting in a revolution against the tyranny of the Loptrian Empire, and was one of the survivors barricaded in Darna Fortress when the tide turned against their movement. It was at this fortress that the Miracle of Darna occurred, changing the tide of the war: Od was chosen by an unidentified member of the twelve dragon "gods" who descended upon the fortress, to undergo a blood-bond with said dragon, transforming him into one of the Crusaders. He was granted Balmung, sealed to his new holy lineage, by this dragon.

With the other Crusaders, Od fought in the rest of the Holy War and contributed to the downfall of the Loptrian Empire. At the war's conclusion, Od founded Isaach and reigned as its first king.
