Balthazar is the wise old teddy bear who's in charge of the playroom in The Christmas Toy and The Secret Life of Toys.

On The Christmas Toy, Balthazar is mostly concerned about his feelings of stress. Being one of the older toys, he finds it hard to remember the last time the children Jamie and Jesse took him out of the playroom.

The newer Balthazar from Secret Life of Toys was larger and had a more elderly look, with a red button for a monocle. He functions as a fatherly figure for the toys. Despite his age, everybody looks up to him. He signals the toys when it's safe to move: "All clear, everyone! They're gone!"

Balthazar is the god of war and fire, and Patron god of Warriors, Pyromancers, Protection and Smiting Monks, and Command and Spear Paragons.

Faction with Balthazar is awarded for success in Arenas, Alliance Battles, Tournaments, and Guild Battles. Balthazar is worshipped by the Zaishen Order.

Beyond the land of Tyria, Balthazar is engaged in an eternal struggle with his half-brother Menzies over control of the Fissure of Woe. It is not known who their parents are or if the other gods are related.

This inscription can be found on the Statue of Balthazar:

For weeks did the battle rage on, and those who had taken up the mantle of war grew weary and their courage began to falter.

Then did Balthazar, god of war and fire, appear to the soldiers, carrying with him a grand sword that did glow with such brilliance it blinded any who looked upon it. When he spoke, His voice was like thunder, and it shook the ground with force.

Then saith He, "Lift up thy weapons. For you are my soldiers, and must you be steadfast, strong, and brave of heart. They who neither hesitate nor stumble shall be rewarded. Then shall you have glory. Then shall your deeds be remembered for eternity."

And then did release from His sword a hundred thousand flames, which encircled the soldiers. For this was the fire of courage, and forthwith did they follow the god into battle without fear or hesitation. Thence was the enemy struck down.

-- Scriptures of Balthazar: 48 BE
