Bard is the elf that killed Smaug the dragon. Yes, an elf did it. Not one of Santa's. Trust me.
Bard is a wonder in the Fighting Pyramid, defeating not only Smaug once again, but also Sauron, another major Middle-Earth antagonist; and even a Weeping Angel. But even with his black arrows with him, he couldn't drive the stake through Lord Vampyre's heart.
Bard had redemption in Round 2, but lost to Alien Commander. What a shame...
