Bodin (ボダン Bodan? ) is one of the secondary characters of the novel series The Heroic Legend of Arslan. He is the Grand Inquisitor and Archpriest of Lusitania, and a servant of[Lusitania's God Yaldabaoth.
2013 Manga and AnimeEdit
Bodin is an old man with a menacing appearance. He is bald and has a thick, grey moustache. He also has dark circles and many wrinkles around his brown eyes. He wears the same chainmail armor as the Lusitanian soldiers.
In the OVAs, Bodin has a less menacing appearance. He has a long, neat beard.
Bodin is a fiendish fanatic and bloodthirsty believer of Yaldabaoth, who uses his position and power to indiscriminately kill slaves and all those deemed as heathens to his faith. He does not hesitate to show his opposition to Innocentius' wedding with Tahamine for being an unbeliever, threatening him indirectly and in his presence.
Bodin is ruthless and without mercy, as he tortured Pars's Marzban Shapur during the siege of Ecbatana, and didn't hesitate to push to the death a Lusitanian soldier who showed doubts on burning mere "pagan" documents, as they could have valuable information.
The only part which is stated as not a bad point of his personality is that he is against extravagance.
