Baziwood Peshmel (バジウッド・ペシュメル) is the acting leader of the Four Imperial Knights of the Baharuth Empire.


Baziwood is described as having a bearded face of a wild man.


Baziwood was like the Strongest Warrior of the Kingdom, Gazef Stronoff, in that he was born a commoner. Thus he was taught and corrected, but the status of his birth was occasionally evident in his speech. While his speech held no eloquence, Baziwood was not a fool. As the only commoner of the Four Knights, being their commander was not for show.[1]


It was said that 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 fifty wives of varying ages.
