Siad is a character in Starbarians. He is described as an "evil snake wizard" who can "bend the very fates to his own evil will", and is introduced in the first episode, "The Starbarians' Die", where he kidnaps Princess Bustilda.
The Starbarians' Die Edit
- Main article: The Starbarians' Die
For an unknown reason, Siad kidnaps Princess Bustilda and takes her to his hideout on the planet of Galeron V. There, he awaits the arrival of the Starbarians, Killgar and Hogstrong, who aim to rescue the princess in hopes of a reward. When they do meet, Siad states he will allow them to save Bustilda if they can simply defeat him at a game of chance. His intellectual prowess and manipulation of fate prove futile, however, against the Starbarians' might, and he is quickly overcome by their brute strength despite winning. He is mercilessly beaten up, and even has his left arm amputated.
As they walk off with Bustila, Siad curses the Starbarians, stating that they will regret their actions. Killgar immediately returns to pummel him once again, leaving Siad's ultimate fate unknown.
Siad's dice are later used twice by the Starbarians; once on the king and once to "let fate decide" on where they should go next.

- Harry Partridge tweeted that Siad is so named for two reasons:
- The name spells "dais" backwards.
- Partridge attended the Surrey Institute of Art and Design.
- An early (2007) design of Siad can be found on Partridge's DeviantART account. The character was originally designed for something known only as Space Opera, but was "recycled" as a villain for Starbarians.
