To survive out there in the field, you have to know how to adapt. And I'm an adaptable man.
~ Damon Baird about himself.
There we go, one muzzled queen! Not you, her. You were great, I loved your speech there, especially the bitch-ass stuff. Very good, very enlightening.
~ Baird to Cole after his speech to Queen Myrrah.

Corporal Damon Baird is one of the main protagonists of Gears of War and is a Gear soldier who was an expert in several technical and mechanical fields, and is known for being sarcastic and blunt towards everyone.

Despite his cynical and blunt personality, he has shown himself to be a capable and determined individual, and played a primary role in helping the Coalition of Ordered Governments in fighting back against the Locust with his inventions. After the end of the Locust Horde and Lambent Pandemic, Baird began his own company called DB Industries, and help rebuild the world after the war.

He is voiced by Fred Tatasciore, who also voiced Tai Kaliso in the same series, Shifu in King Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness, Nikolai Belinski in the Call of Duty zombies series, Poseidon in God of War, Zeus in God of War: Ghost of Sparta, Mario Auditore in the Assassin's Creed series, and Zeratul in StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty.


He joined the Coalition of Ordered Governments army on Emergence Day, and soon after met Augustus Cole, who became his best friend. Fourteen years later he was a member of Alpha Squad during the Lightmass Offensive, but joined Delta Squad along with Cole after the rest of the squad was killed. After the successful conclusion to the offensive, he was assigned to lead Sigma-One with Cole, taking part in several battles against the Locust.

During Operation: Hollow Storm, he once again rejoined Delta, and fought through the campaign to sink Jacinto. He joined the rest of the COG in its evacuation to Port Farrall and later Vectes, where the COG was forced to deal with the Stranded Insurgency, and later the Lambent Pandemic, during which Baird was often on the front lines helping formulate plans with the rest of Delta and command. When the COG collapsed, Baird joined the rest of Delta aboard the CNV Sovereign as part of the rapid response force that would assist several settlements the remnants of the COG had set up on the mainland.

By Gears of War 4, Baird started his own company of DeeBees, and is in a relationship with Sam. Reuniting with his friends and honorary nephew, JD Fenix, he helps them fight against the new threat - the Swarm.


Early Life

Damon Bard was born presumably during the Pendulum Wars, and is the son of Jocelin Baird and Elinor Lytton. He was born into a wealthy family, but mostly referred to be around machines and crafting things during his childhood. Damon showed himself to be highly intelligent in his youth, getting perfects scores in high school, and studied at La Croix University when he was young.

Baird originally wanted to go into engineering school, but his parents refused to give him his inheritance unless he enlisted in the military. Six weeks after the Pendulum Wars ended, the Locust Horde emerged and attacked Sera, which would be known as Emergence Day. Many were killed during the event, but Baird managed to survive despite his parents being killed by the Locust.

Joining the COG

On E-Day, Baird enlisted in the Coalition of Ordered Governments Army, and was assigned to Bravo Company of the 4th Ephyra Light Infantry a month after. Baird met and befriended Augustus Cole, who had stopped a fight that Baird participated in in a bathroom. Damon recognized Cole, a famous thrashball player, and stated that he was Sharks fan himself.
