Boom's Baard is a Baardvark. This one is typical of its species, as exemplified by its undistinguished moniker.
Baardvarks are known to wander widely, singing ballads of aardvark heroism, bravery, and cunning. They occasionally produce extemporaneous poems of wit and satire while hoisting a brew amongst friends in a cozy pubroom, and they are not above using their earthcraft mugs defensively (and sometimes offensively) in a brawl. Brawl bystanders often comment on the strange light in a Baardvark's eye as the mug is used to best effect, and some opine that said light reflects the Baardvark's enthusiasm for participatory mayhem. Others suggest the Baardvark is simply engrossed in the experience, while at least one person was heard to say, "Nonsense. He was right by the fireplace - that always gives an odd gleam to the eye."
Whatever the reason, a Baardvark's favorite ballad usually recounts dramatic battles that frequent pubgoers swear bear an uncanny resemblance to memorable local brawls, albeit cast in terms of unparalleled heroism and peerless valor. Boom's Baard is engaged in a struggle of epic magnitude, as he fights to gain point supremacy against a vast hoard of practically three dozen rival aardvarks. The strange gleam in his eye surely reflects his determination to set his fight to song, converting his hapless tendency to trip over his own feet into nimble dexterity as he soars into what he sincerely hopes will not be last place.
