Barov is a man in his 50s or 60s. He had worn white robe before changing into black suit.
He is an ambitious manager and enthusiastically completes task after task, despite believing Roland is possessed by Devil, since it increases his power and control.
He feels jealousy to those who are higher ranked than him and he wishes to flaunt his authority to those people who are above him, expressing regret when he couldn't rub his status in the recently banished finance minsiter's face.
Barov is highly ambitious and dreams of being Roland's prime minister, turning down a position as leader of the recently captured King's City so that he could remain as the leader of Neverwinter's City Hall. He feels threatened by the competence of Edith Kant and works hard to prove that he is more useful than her.
Barov had worked as assistant of finance minister for twenty years and gained vast knowledge of governance methods and commodity curculation.
He was assigned to prince Roland as administrative assistant.
Next morning after prince Roland postponed execution of witch, Barov went to convince him immediately put her to death, fearing other witches would try to rescue ther. Nonetheless, Roland ordered to lead him to her cell personally. In prison he was terrified of prince's idea to prove her power and strongly objected releasing her from the locket. When they returned to castle, prince asked for various records and explained reasons to hire witch; in short, he decided to gain throne with witches' assistance and stop Church's ever-growing influence.
