Bradley Johansson is the founder of the Guardians of Selfhood, an organization dedicated to liberating the Commonwealth from the supposed control of the alien entity known as the Starflyer. Bradley claims to have once been under the influence of the Starflyer, until he was sent by the Starflyer to investigate the Silfen.  The Silfen recognized that he was under control and released him from his mental programming.

Spoilers: what happened to him in the end
Converted to a Silfen after the events of the Starflyer war. Araminta met Bradley (and Cloud Dancer) when she was wandering the Silfen Paths.
