Bord makes his first appearance in Chapter 2 of Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi, where he, alongside Ogma, Barst and Cord, enlists in Marth's army under the behest of Princess Caeda of Talys. Bord then aids Marth in bringing the War of Darkness to an end, and thereafter reverted to his previous occupation as a woodcutter.
Bord returns in Chapter 3 of Shin Monshō no Nazo, where he has taken up temporary residence in a Macedonian village. When Marth pays a visit to the village, Bord appears to greet him, promptly enlisting in his army thereafter. Bord will then aid Marth in ending the War of Heroes, before returning to Talys to resume his occupation as a woodcutter.
Like a majority of the cast in Ankoku Ryū to Hikari no Tsurugi and Mystery of the Emblem, Bord's personality is not well developed, owing to the minor role that he plays in the games. Nevertheless, it is still possible to deduce certain traits that define his character from the few interactions that he engages in. Of note is the fact that Bord's personality is exactly the same as that of Cord's, one that is proven by their speech mirroring each other both when speaking to Barst in Chapter 5 of Shin Monshō no Nazo and in their respective base conversations with the Avatar.
As a character who is deliberately designed as the counterpart of Cord, it comes as no surprise that a rivalry exists between Bord and Cord, where they constantly attempt to outdo each other in a variety of arenas. This rivalry of theirs is one that has the tendency to become rather heated as the pair lose their cool while in the midst of arguing with each other, a fact that is proven through their base conversations in Shin Monshō no Nazo, where they wind up engaging in a violent tree-felling competition. Their rivalry also extends to the looks department, where Bord, through his base conversations with the Avatar, narcissistically proclaims that he is the more handsome of the two.
In spite of his apparent hatred of Cord, it is quite evident that Bord, in actuality, cares for him tremendously; through his base conversations with the Avatar, he repeatedly expresses his anxiety for Cord's safety under the guise of insults that suggest that his partner is useless without his assistance.
Bord and Cord appear together in the third and final of Kiria Kurono's side stories. In this game, they exist as Mirage golems that Tharja creates as a means for training Kiria on being cute. However, they malfunction and rage out of control. The battle against the Bord and Cord carries specific conditions; Kiria and Tsubasa are required to be in the active party, and it is the only battle in which both characters have access to the special charm-inflicting skill "Seducing Pose." The attack hits both Bord and Cord, but Bord can only be charmed by Tsubasa, and Cord can only be charmed by Kiria. Bord and Cord are only vulnerable to damage when in the the Charmed state.
