Badawi lives in the Icy Desert of Kayonia.
Badawi and several other villagers go to look for the Black Cactus in order to heal their horses. He spots a lone Cactus and slowly makes his way there, but the other villagers warn him about Komodo. Badawi shakes the warnings off, stating that they were merely tales to scare children. Just as he approaches the cactus, Komodo comes out of the sand and rakes his claws at him, causing the man to scream. When Tom and Elenna negotiated with the Icy Desert villagers about the Black Cactus, it is revealed that they have "already lost one of their number trying", saying that Badawi had been killed by the Lizard King.
