BAHRAM, also known as Bufram in the OVA and anime, is a Martian extremist organization that serves as the main antagonists of the Zone of the Enders franchise.


It is led by Nohman, who pilots the Orbital Frame Anubis. While BAHRAM seeks the freedom and independence of Mars, their real goal was to take over the planet instead of liberation. Nohman tightened his hold on the organization and showed no mercy in causing civilian causalities to take out other opposing organizations. BAHRAM is eventually defeated for good when Dingo Egret engages in battle with Nohman at his headquarters Aumaan and puts an end to Aumaan after destroying Anubis.


  • The organization's name "BAHRAM" appears to be based off of the Persian language name for Mars(بهرام). "Bahram" as a name can mean "smiting of resistance" or "victorious" in the same language.
  • BAHRAM's symbol bears resemblance to the symbol of the Principality of Zeon in the Mobile Suit Gundam series, of which Zone of the Enders is partially based.
