Born is Dubrovka to a relatively poor family, he helped out whenever he could with farming and other tasks, often missing classes to do so. At the age of seventeen, only a couple of months short of his eighteenth birthday he enlisted in the CDF and was sent to Utes for training, where he showed promise and was transferred to an officers course. He left training as a lieutenant and was sent to the 76th mechanized "Jarillo", stationed at Balota. He served through the civil war there and for years after, eventually reaching the rank of captain shortly before everything started to go very wrong.
Since everything that has happened Bardov has frequently gone back and forth between area's controlled by the CDF and those not, including South Zagoria. Primarily scouting, gathering what information he can and trying his damnedest to be inspiring in his own way.
