Affiliation Kashipa
Occupation Vice Unit Leader
Alias Face Collector
Location Harlem Outskirts: Sugar Hill, Bleeding Underground Passage

Lore

Operation: Hope Lore:

The residents of Harlem have an almost morbid fear of Bernardo.
The Black Market merchants seem to believe that just mentioning his name would surely doom them.

This man, whose place of origin and age were unknown, instantly dominated Kashipa's elite combat unit, Vice, with his cruel charisma as soon as he joined the organization.

He earned his moniker, the Face Collector, because of his signature killing style. Everyone who was murdered by Bernardo with their faces ripped off by his vice-like hands.[1]

Pandemonium War Lore:

He was utterly defeated. His body was destroyed, and his Abyss was losing its power. He was angry, but he couldn't do anything about it. He was sad, but he couldn't do anything about that, either. He couldn't even swallow his pain. He'd lost the faces that showed emotions, and was left with his own stiffened face.

"Heh heh heh. Here's a good material. It's too good to go to waste. It really is."

A strange old man approached him. He tried to reach for the old man's face, but his body wouldn't budge.

"Nuh-huh, not my face. I'll give you a different face. You'll love it. Heh heh."

That was the last thing Bernado heard before he lost consciousness.

By the time he woke up, the work was all done. The faces he'd lost were back, along with a new one. And the power that ran through his body! Maybe this new power could help him get revenge on the enemy who made him like this. His body had been changed, but he didn't care.

"I could always fill it with faces again..." [2]

History

While little is known about Bernardo's past life, he became a member of the Kashipa and later leader of the Vice combat unit, earning a reputation for his cruel charisma and brought fear among Harlem's residents with the thought of his name being mentioned. He earned the "Face Collector" moniker due to his signature killing style by ripping off the faces of his victims with the use of his vice-like hands.

Bernardo and his unit are dispatched by Walkman in Harlem's Outskirts during the events of Operation: Hope while capturing residents to continue their Abyss research. If The Adventurer travels to Sugar Hill or receives a mission, they'll battle and eventually defeat Bernardo.

Sometime after his defeat, Bernardo's damaged body is found by Gizel Logan and later revived as a cyborg with the Pandemonium War underway. During the Adventurer's infiltration mission with their group, they enter Bleeding Underground Passage where Bernardo appears and attempts to get his revenge with the upgrade he's given, but is defeated once more.
