(Weapon X: The Draft - Marrow#1 (fb) - BTS) - D'Gard once saved Sarah's life.

(Storm I#4 - BTS) - Refugees from the Hill dimension settled in an African village, ordered by Storm to settle the land and learn to survive as a community.

(Uncanny X-Men Annual 1997 (fb) - BTS) - D'Gard took command of the village, working hard to keep his people alive and estranged from humanity. Humanity's Last Stand focused attacks on a settled village of Gene Nationals in Africa, mounting several Razor and artillery attacks. Their initial attack cut of the village's communications with the outside world.

(Uncanny X-Men Annual 1997) - The X-Men (Cannonball, Cyclops, Phoenix, Storm) arrived to defend the Gene Nationals from the Razors, who soon fled, overwhelmed. D'Gard checked in with Storm, questioning how she could have left them behind and how much more they had to endure. That night, the Brotherhood (Dark Beast, Fatale, Havok) arrived to help the Gene Nationals as well, despite their conflicts with the X-Men. D'Gard wondered whether the philosophy of the X-Men or the Brotherhood was more correct. A massive battle broke out. D'Gard watched as Cannonball narrowly saved Fatale from one blast. D'Gard sensed the emotions of the survivors under a massive wreckage and grew impressed as she fought her claustrophobia to help rescue them. The insane bloody battle continued until Storm, her powers enhanced by Boost, managed to distract the Razors with a sandstorm while Dark Beast commandeered their armor, sending the Razors up into a massive lightning storm. The captured Razors were gathered together and Tether demanded their death. Havok was willing, but the X-men argued against it. As they fought about it, Dark Beast killed all the human pilots, overwhelming D'Gard with their sense of loss. D'Gard chose to keep the Gene Nationals in the village with no contact with the outside world. Boost and Tether departed with the Brotherhood, though they vowed not to join the team.

(Weapon X: The Draft - Marrow#1 (fb) - BTS) - D'Gard was apprehended by the US government and kept in seclusion.

(Weapon X: The Draft - Marrow#1) - When Marrow snuck in to see D'Gard, he was shocked at how beautiful she looked. She stabbed him with a bone, killing him on assignment from Weapon X.
