Po Bidau Lyborick Khun (포 비더 라이볼릭 쿤, Po Bideo Laibollig Kun) is a High Ranker from the Po Bidau Family and the Khun Family. He is the newly appointed Corps Commander of the 4th Army Corp of Zahard's Army after Kallavan was demoted.
At some point during the Age of Coexistence, Lyborick was already an elite member in the Zahard's Army when he was contacted by Khun Hynd Luch who seek out a helping hand to save his friends in the Hidden Grove from FUG's grand assassination plan to ambush King Zahard in his sleep which would be led by Khel Hellam. Luch believed that FUG cannot defeat Zahard and such a plan will only end up as a suicide mission. Luch then leaked out the intel of FUG's plan to Lyborick as the price to spare his friends' life. Lyborick, of course, accepted the information and promised Luch that he would save them. When the day of FUG's assault towards King Zahard led by Khel Hellam was finally initiated, Luch followed Lyborick's instruction to guide his friends to the promised safe location where they will be captured for a while and will be released after King Zahard took care of the assault. Lyborick does keep his promise to keep the Hidden Grove members safe, but he never intended to release them, and instead, he took all of them as hostages to make Khun Hynd Luch do dirty work on his behalf for a very long time. Before the Battle of the Nest, Lyborick called Luch once again with the intention for a final job for him, which will kill him anyway, to help him get rid of the old 4th Army Corp by exploding the flagship, promising to truly release the Hidden Grove this time and assuring him that it will be the last time.
After Kallavan successfully brings Dowon back to the Corps, Lyborick praises him for his good work and appoints him as Company Commander before revealing to Dowon they brought the survivors of the Hidden Grove, who had been defeated decisively by Zahard and promised to let them go if she is loyal to them.
Lyboric is later seen with Khun Maschenny Zahard and Lo Po Bia Yasratcha as he scolds Lo Po Bia Yasratcha for not finishing off Baylord Yama, saying that regardless of the order, he should have killed him before going to The Nest.
When Yama and the Cage enters the First Defensive Wall, Lyborick tells Yasratcha that his Squadron will handle the First Defensive Wall and that the 5th Squadron should stay in the Second Defensive Wall, noting that their confidence in attacking the Nest indicates they had discovered a way to resist Yasratcha's power, and stating that the reinforcements of the Lo Po Bia Family are all among the most powerful who even a Slayer would have a hard time against.
When the Slayer White returns to full power and fights Kallavan, Lyborick calmly reveals his plan to destroy the 4th Army Corps Flagship near the Cage to destroy it, anticipating that they were planning something with the Cage especially as it was moving so slowly. He contacts Kallavan and gives him the order to stop the High Rankers there and make sure the Flagship explodes while appeasing his concerns that a lot of their soldiers will be killed by revealing that he has stationed a new generation of the 4th Army Corp even stronger than the old one. He smirks when Kallavan approves but promises to kill him should it fail and the soldiers die for nothing, saying that Kallavan can come and kill him if it does fail but before that he must fulfill his duty as he allows Kallavan to break the seal on his arm. Lyborick then tells Luch to explode the flagship, having proven that he has truly released the Hidden Grove to Luch's own eyes.
Lyborick later confirms to Yasratcha that he has planned from the beginning to get rid of the old 4th Army Corp, as they were more loyal to Kallavan than to Zahard and thus don't belong to the Army, which he believes should be composed solely of disposable fanatics to Zahard, and states that this is also a test for Kallavan: If he abandons his followers to die, thus proving his loyalty to Zahard, he can potentially regain his old post, but if he doesn't, then he will be disposed.
Appearance and Personality
Lyborick is a tall, big build man with short purple hair with green eyes. He wears some kind of headband that keeps his hair combed back. He wears a dark grey vest and a long sleeve shirt with a diamond pattern.
Although not much is known about Lyborick, he is shown to speak in a formal tone and has no hesitations using leverage over others, as he bluntly told Dowon that the survivors of the Hidden Grove are currently being held hostage and would be killed if she opposes them. Indeed, while he kept his word of ensuring the safety of the Hidden Grove, instead of freeing them like he promised Luch, he instead took them into custody and used them as leverage to make him do dirty works and only ultimately lived up completely to his bargain when he wanted to throw aside Luch for good anyway by sending him to a suicide mission. He is more than willing to admonish what he sees as flaws, criticizing fellow Corps Commander Lo Po Bia Yasratcha for not finishing Baylord Yama off, showing he takes the threat of FUG seriously. At the same time, he is shown to be willing to reward success, as he congratulated Kallavan for successfully bringing Dowon and promoted him to Company Commander. Typical for the Khun Family, Lyborick is shown to be crafty and cunning, as he was able to detect something suspicious about the Canine People being so confident in their ability to win the battle, connecting it to the possibility that the canine people found a counter to Yasratcha's power.
Lyborick's cunning was further shown when he deduced that FUG was going to use The Cage for a special reason. He was willing to sacrifice the entire Corps to destroy The Cage, although it was part of his plan and schemes to destroy the old 4th Army Corp which consist of Kallavan's servants and set an excuse that they should be disposed of since they were more loyal to Kallavan than King Zahard. He showed no remorse or hesitation and totally reformed the new 4th Army Corp from scratch with stronger members who were more loyal to Zahard, his callousness even shocking and unnerving the likes of Yasratcha, who is sadistic in his own right. Lyborick himself is also shown to be a Zahard fanatic, as he made it clear he saw the Army as naturally being only for disposable fanatics utterly loyal to Zahard and he didn't even care when Kallavan threatened to kill him should his men die for nothing and that Kallavan could possibly take back his position as Squadron Commander, merely telling Kallavan that he could come kill him if the plan failed and take his position and sounding completely unconcerned at the possibility of Kallavan being promoted back to Squadron Commander if he did leave behind his men to perish. Even after the plan completely fell apart, Lyborick showed complete confidence that with him and the new 4th Squadron around, they could still win the battle and confidently promised to take responsibility should a problem came from it, even impressing Maschenny with his confidence.
Powers of Abilities
Being a High Ranker and holds the position as a Corp Commander, he is assumed to be quite powerful. His fighting capabilities are unknown, but in the past during the Age of Coexistence, he captured the remaining members of the Hidden Grove team (excluding Cha and Dowon since they were already sealed at that time).

Notes and Trivia
- He was first mentioned in Vol.3 Ch.39, but had his first appearance in Vol.3 Ch.51.
- Although he is from both the Po Bidau and Khun family, his main family is the Po Bidau family, since this is the name that is first used. This is similar to how Zahard's Princesses will use their original family name first and then add Zahard at the end.
- Given that both the family leaders of his families are male, he can at best be a first-generation member of one of the families.
