Saar, when given orders by Glen, speaks formally and properly to his superiors. He has no objections to executing Natasha but he does make sure it is approved by Glen before attempting to do so.[1] Saar appears incredibly loyal to Grado in all his dialogue and actions.

Saar is cited as a blackheart by the locals of Serafew.[2] Serafew's Renais-native citizens have been submitted to atrocities that Saar appears to be complicit with.
