Custom user card badge

Would it be possible to set a custom user card badge from the admin panel? Currently, it looks like the only way is to award a badge to get user card badges. It would be nice to allow staff to set custom user card badges using the admin panel, like titles can be.

Staff can head to the public user page and amend preferences as needed. Open to also allowing staff to do this from the admin side, but I am unclear if this feature is even going to remain in core.
