Wild Arms 2
Ard (Japanese: Ge) primarily serves as Liz's assistant, guinea-pig, and muscle. In a sense he works for Odessa, but his loyalty seems to be to his fellow Lizardian. If Liz gets in the party's way for some reason, Ard will be there as well. Unlike Liz, Ard doesn't know any native languages to Filgaia so repeats his name endlessly when speaking. Oddly, Liz seems to fully understand him anyway.
Ard is always with his professor Liz, and usually will have a mecha of some sort (such as Trask or Bulkogidon) around to back them up in combat. It's impossible to tell if Ard actually has some technical acuity, or simply is just good at following Liz's orders. Nevertheless, Ard aids in building the mecha and weapons for Odessa.
In combat Liz and Ard are often moderately difficult, but very self-defeating. To get to Ard to fight to his fullest, Liz has to employ alchemical liquids which have more severe adverse effects. Worse, Liz also likes to make use of explosives without regards to being in their area of effect, further damaging himself and Ard! Obviously, he and his partner aren't meant to be taken too seriously. (Their mecha, however, is another story.)
Ard is not from Filgaia and is actually a space alien who accidentally crashed when Odessa began their operations. (The translation is iffy on this, but it appears that they crashed once the Telepath Tower was activated.) As such, Ard's primary goal is to help Liz enough supplies and equipment from Odessa to rebuild his ship and return home. Once things are settled with Odessa, Ashley's party can, with the help of Marivel Armitage, reactivate the UFO and send them into space...
