Volahd is the alleged deity of Acmarans (The Law of Volahd, Part 1), but is actually an IL-series Cylon (The Law of Volahd, Part 2).
According to Taron and his female aide, Volahd protects them from outside interference and is responsible for Salis being the "city of perfect peace".
Taron claims that the Colonials were permitted to land because Volahd wished this, yet later judges the Warriors evil, which is an automatic death sentence for anyone who is "evil".
Taron is the only Acmaran capable communicating with Volahd, who appears as a column of light-yellow energy (The Law of Volahd, Part 1).
Volahd is on the basestar that approaches the planet; this Cylon and those under its command are summarily destroyed when the cyranite-fueled force field is disrupted by Taron, causing the force field to malfunction and draw in Volahd's orbiting basestar. The basestar collides with Salis, destroying both (The Law of Volahd, Part 2).
