Sojan the Swordsman
 also known as Sojan Shieldbearer, is an aspect of the Eternal Champion. He fights with a sword and a pneumatic gun similar in function to the Needle Gun used by Jerry Cornelius.

Sojan is distinguished by his use of a shield, an armament unheard of on planet Zylor. Other warriors often mock Sojan as a coward for his use of a shield, until it's effectiveness in defence coupled with Sojan's skill in combat silences them.
