Bogard is a former Gemma Knight who now lives in a small cabin near a waterfall, away from civilization. The citizens of Topple consider him a hermit who was once a gallant knight. When Sumo and Fuji reach the lone cabin, Sumo tells the old man living there he's looking for Bogard. The old man replies he doesn't know anything, but notices the Pendant of Mana on Fuji. She tells him it used to belong to her mother and wonders if he's a Gemma Knight.
He confirms this, and mentions the Vandole Empire once tried to conquer the world with the power of Mana. The Gemma Knights fought against them to retrieve the peace, were losing. The power of Mana was too strong, but there was a lady who assured their victory, and that lady had the same pendant upon her chest Fuji is wearing. He mentions Fuji is the key for this time.
When Sumo walks out of Gaia Pass, he's stopped by a voice from behind. Bogard comes up, telling him that Cibba told him about Fuji being taken by the Glaive Empire. Stating that Julius is good at disguising himself, but there's a chance of rescuing her because Glaive's Airship is refueling at a lake up north. He joins Sumo to rescue Fuji and they both head to the airship at the north.
They venture through the airship in search of Fuji and find her locked within a room, but by the time they arrive the airship's engine are operational. Bogard asks if the windows are locked, and she replies they do and Sumo tells her he'll get to her from the outside. Bogard tells him he'll stay with her and guard her.
Bogard is thrown off the airship, but Sarah saved him. He's bedridden since his back is broken and won't be able to move for a while, thanks to Dr. Bowow. He is distressed to hear other places are being attacked, but kept saying there is a boy named Sumo who will come and save everyone. A short while later, Sumo wakes up next to him, but he loses his confidence with himself, claiming he's not a Gemma Knight. Bogard tries to talk to him, but Sumo doesn't let him. He tells Bogard he's a Gemma Knight, and he should do it. Bogard angrily tells Sumo to get out of the house which Sumo does.
Sumo revisits him before leaving town, and Bogard warns him it'll be a perilous journey. Julius got the power of Mana, and the only match against it is a knight wielding the legendary sword Excalibur. This is how the Gemma Knights defeated the evil power of Vandole. Sumo asks for the sword's whereabouts but Bogart replies it is somewhere in the world. He tells him to go to Wendel and ask Cibba since he has knowledge on this stuff.
After Julius's Defeat, Sumo visit Bogard, Sarah, and Dr. Bowow in Ish.
Bogard wields a Sword during battle. He will teach Sumo how to use Max attacks when asked.
