Baziwood is a middle-aged man with blue eyes, blond hair, and a beard.
Baziwood is described to have an excessively informal personality. He was taught and corrected, but the status of his common birth was occasionally evident in his speech. Even to his liege, he remains blunt and honest, forgoing formalities.
A commoner born in a back alley, Baziwood understood that he would die in that alley if he did not obtain the power to survive. For that very reason, he set his eyes on becoming a knight. He eventually distinguished himself and caught Jircniv's attention. His wives and lovers all came from brothels, and the five of them live under the same roof. He has very good relationships with women.

Abilities and Powers
Baziwood is regarded as the strongest of the Four Imperial Knights and one of the strongest warriors of the Empire. He has a mithril full body armor that was lightened, and adamantite weapons. He also possesses the standard equipment of the Four Imperial Knights.
Baziwood is loyal to Emperor Jircniv and the Baharuth Empire, performing his duty as one of the strongest imperial knights in the Empire. While he was not very loyal at first, he actually began to respect for Jircniv after spending some time as his guardian. He might well be the most loyal man to the Emperor in the Empire.
- In the Web Novel, the name Lightning Bolt comes from his weapon.
- In both the Light Novel and Web Novel, when the Imperial Delegation encountered Nazarick's Death Knights, Baziwood suggested they take Yuri Alpha as a hostage.
- After the meeting with Ainz Ooal Gown, he was among three people that sat in counsel with Emperor Jircniv.
- In the Web Novel, Baziwood had once been contacted by many nobles. Some of them even tried to give their daughters to him. If he accepted all of them, he said he would have over 50 wives of varying ages.
- (To Jircniv about Yuri Alpha and the Death Knights): "...Forgive me. In truth, I feel that the maid is even more powerful than the Death Knights. They're certainly more mysterious...ah, look at her, she doesn’t even care that we're talking about such things right in front of her. How frightening..."
- (To Jircniv about Ainz): "Ah, yes, his presence was truly formidable. It felt like he was more of a leader than our Emperor."
- (To Jircniv about the residents in Nazarick): "Well, rather than call it a monster gallery, you could say it's a wealth of talent..."
- (To Jircniv): "Eh? Me too? Your Majesty, we should have brought a maid along, shouldn't we? Our guests would probably find the drinks tastier if a girl was serving them. I mean, I know I would."
- (To Jircniv about Ainz): "Ahh, this is really...how shall I put this. He really put the boot in. He hit you right in your weak spot. Something like that."
- (To Jircniv jokingly about Ainz): "Is it possible that he's not thinking about anything at all?"
