Bartolome Naz is a weapons developer and designer.
Naz was once in a relationship with a Nietzschean named Desiree D'lene of the near-extinct Kodiak Pride. However, he and Desiree separated, and out of revenge he hired Tyr Anasazi, a mercenary at the time, to kill her. Tyr dutifully found her, but he too fell in love with her, and agreed not to kill her. Tyr sent D'lene to the glacial planet Elba IX to hide her existence, and told Naz that she was dead. Tyr never contacted her again. Unfortunately, Naz found out that she was alive because Desiree D'lene sent a message to Tyr, which he intercepted. When he discovered that she was still alive, he managed to manipulate the crew of the Andromeda Ascendant to help him to find and regain Desiree. Instead of finally killing her, he chose to forgive her and let her go. In addition, he also promised to use his skills to try to save lives, not to take them.
Naz designed an automated weapons sentry otherwise known as an Attrox, giving it emotions and a brain, and placed it in orbit around Elba IX.
Bartolome Naz was crippled by a neurological illness Myasthenia gravis, and as a result was bound in a wheelchair. However, Andromeda stated that it was "easily treatable", but Naz refused treatment until he forgave D'lene, in order to feed his hatred.
