The Bard is a kind-hearted wandering singer who lives on the outskirts of Langtree. After learning of the imminent destruction of the world, the Bard sets out to gather pieces of the Earthsong, a legendary song held by Overseers of the world, which might save the world from ending when sung. Their goal as they travel is to spread happiness to everyone they meet, which they mainly do by singing. Regardless of the situation at hand or the being they are faced with, they always try their hardest to keep a positive attitude and help spread it to others.
Despite the dangers encountered in their journey, the Bard is unable and unwilling to engage in combat, as they refuse to hurt or kill any living thing. Instead, their main tool is their singing, which is capable of calming others' minds, bringing peace, curing curses, and even performing basic magic. It is also capable of affecting the environment through a "song wheel" consisting of eight colored directions, with each representing a different note.
The Bard is one of the Assist characters in Fraymakers, and they will be among the twenty Assists available at the launch of its Early Access release. When called upon, they sing and surround the summoner with the song wheel. Opponents that make contact with it are pushed away, and the Bard sings a note based on which segment of the song wheel is used.
