The Archangel Bédard was the second-highest ranking of the archangels described in the Holy Writ of the Church of God Awaiting, patron of "wisdom and self-knowledge". She was actually based on Adorée Bédard, chief psychiatrist of Operation Ark.

The Writ's second book, the Book of Bédard, described her teachings. (OAR)

"Sweet Bédard" was a common exclamation of disbelief, usually targeted at something so unbelievable that it was hard to believe or process. (MTAT)
