Basil Bazarov is an opportunistic arms dealer and representative of Korrupt Arms. He worked to sell weaponry to both the San Theodoran and Nuevo-Rican governments. This was a planned operation in league with R.W. Trickler of the General American Oil company to spark a conflict between the two countries over the El Chapo oil fields.
His character is based on the real life exploits of armaments magnate and financier, Sir Basil Zaharoff (1849-1936).
