Hardy was a man that became host to Begand after falling in despair for not being able to walk again, he served as one of the minor antagonists Garo: Vanishing Line.
Hardy was a former multiple-time Olympic gold medalist sprinter who was paralyzed in an accident when he pushed his girlfriend Enith out of the way of a falling sign. As Begand, he is exceptionally fast and hard to track, even for Sword's Madō Motorcycle. Begand sent Sword and Luke on a mad chase across the city until it is finally taken down by a combination of well-placed shots from Luke's rifle and a single swing of Garo's sword. Because of Luke's memory-erasing rain, Enith believes Hardy to be missing.
