Though alone at first, other masked warriors soon rallied around Bardas, and together they would seek out new war zones. Bardas was always the first to notice and he would blow in his horn, rousing the fighting spirit of his men. Upon arrival, they would indiscriminately slaughter all their destination, be they involved or not. They desired not battle itself, cut the unmatched thrill of murder and the intoxicating scent of blood.
Bardas is the name of several Byzantine generals.
