Bardon Schaeffer is the Black Tusk Specialist Unit Leader during the Black Tusk Invasion of D.C. He is directly below the Black Tusk Commanding Officer and another supervisor, both of which have their identities unknown.
With the task of controlling the city and wiping out The Division as they are labeled as a rogue agency, Bardon's status, along with his BTSU, is unknown.
He's the featured manhunt target for Season 3, Concealed Agenda.
Has a family history in law enforcement and government security. Enlisted in the Army at 18 and served multiple tours of Iraq and Afghanistan. Highly tactical with a proven ability to eliminate targets with extreme efficiency. Respected among his comrades and a natural choice for the role of Specialist Unit Leader.
He has been ordered by an employer of sorts - to get his own special Black Tusk unit to utilize a "golden opportunity". This turned out to be the Black Tusk Specialist Unit.
Bardon Schaeffer's history is mostly hidden; except for the fact that he and his BTSU has been lying in the shadows, monitoring the status of Washington, D.C. ever since the Green Poison hit, preparing for the right time to strike the city.
He managed to get two American Secret Service agents to assassinate President Mendez and guise the murder as a suicide, promising them safe passage out of the city. However, with the help of fellow BTSU member, Petrus Brenner, Schaeffer had the Secret Service agents killed.
With members from his BTSU, they also discussed the various factions in D.C. to BTSU member Elijah Sumner, the Hyenas seemed to be the best option to give the most trouble to both The Division and the other factions in D.C. Schaeffer liked Sumner's recommendation and passed it onto to his supervisor. He also attempted to hire Odessa Sawyer into the BTSU, but she turned down the offer.
Before The Division could make their assault on the Capitol Building, he made contact with President Ellis regarding the antivirals as the facility holding them can't be accessed without the briefcase held at the True Sons stronghold. Shortly after The Division secured the Capitol Building, he met with Ellis along with the briefcase in tow. Ellis passed Schaeffer the antivirals, in which he ordered Milla "Wyvern" Radek to store the antivirals at Tidal Basin, the Black Tusk's main base in D.C.
As The Division moved through the stronghold, Schaeffer attempted to get Wyvern to make a foot extraction with the antivirals, since a Division helicopter destroyed a turbine, leaving Black Tusk with little to no options. Wyvern ignored Black Tusk's tactical disadvantage by commencing a missile attack against The White House, in which Schaeffer was extremely against.
The Division gunned down Wyvern, stopped the missile launch and secured the antivirals shortly after. During Black Tusk's occupation of The Pentagon, he emphasized to Brenner about the importance of keeping the place in check and keep The Division from taking the Perfusion Bioreactor.
In spite of Brenner's attempts to stop The Division, they still managed to get the reactor. Additionally, his attempt to rebuild his Specialist Unit came to a grinding halt when Division agents stormed Camp White Oak and stopped Black Tusk from extracting any data and information from there. Out of frustration due to the insubordinate actions of Heads and Tails, the lead BTSU operatives tasked to lead the mission, he called his employer, telling him to stop sending clowns.
Sometime before the events of Warlords of New York, Schaeffer made contact with Faye Lau regarding the exchange of rogue agent, Alicia Coswald, who aligned herself with Black Tusk. During the events of Warlords of New York, he led the assault on Liberty Island in hopes to eliminate Aaron Keener. However, due to intervention from Division agents causing the Razorback to be disabled and a Marauder-class Quadcopter and a number of Warhounds hacked by Keener, Schaeffer ordered the retreat.
After Keener's death, his conversation with Lau was intercepted by Division agents regarding the activation of the Rogue Agent Network. While he wasn't keen on having to deal with more rogue agents, Lau reassured him that it will bring The Division to its knees, and they will be able to end them once and for all.
Sometime after Keener's death, Schaeffer tried to persuade Carter "Hornet" Leroux to join Black Tusk as part of a recruiting drive. Unfortunately, Hornet rebuked his offer, suggesting Schaeffer that Hornet only has one boss, and when he refers about Keener ''lives on in more ways he can think of'', he made himself clear that Keener is his only boss.
