Barael's childhood was most unpleasant. Born to the Midlands District of Korvosa, he was raised by his mother, Audra Garrett, with whom he still lives. He was told as a child that he had a better chance of hearing word from almighty Aroden, than from his absent cur of a father. As a means of self-consolation, Barael began his one-sided conversations with a Dead God, comforted to hear his own voice, and hardly disappointed after a time to receive no answer.

Out of curiosity, Barael made his way to Old Korvosa and the Church of Aroden, and he grew fond of the priests who encouraged his stays, and praised his generosity of donations, however meager.

To avoid his mother's harsher turns at parenting, Barael found an alternate family in the Korvosan Guard, which humored him in his earnestness to help in any way he could. He found himself tasked with delivering messages to the various guard posts, which gave him purpose and kept him busy til nightfall, when returning home would be less... volatile. Oftentimes, he’d bring food items in order to prolong his visit with the guards, breaking bread and trying to amuse them with poorly remembered jokes. There was a freedom here, to speak his mind, without fear of a thrashing, and it was a freedom that drew him back again and again. The Guard seemed like a wonderful future for Barael.

It was a harsh awakening, being pulled from his bed in the dead of night by the roots of his hair. Audra had dragged him all the way to the front door, and he resisted not in the least. Through bleary eyes, Barael counted four Crimson and Black awaiting him outside. He could sense the dread business they were about, but he couldn’t understand why he was being asked to extend his wrists. The cold steel of the cuffs, it jarred him completely awake. He would remain awake for the next 4 days, in the discomfort of a Korvosan cell, awaiting word of his sentencing, for murder no less.

The old fisherman Cantinas had described Barael to a tee, running from a still warm body on the western shore of the Jeggare. When word finally came, it was to inform Barael that he was free to go, for Cantinas would not, could not testify against him. His body had been discovered in the same waters that nourished him all these years. No matter that Barael’s own mother provided an alibi for that night. The Guard would have no official recant to vindicate Barael’s name.

When Barael learned that there was likely motive in Cantinas’ death, that he had been intimidated by one Gaedren Lamm to cover his own murderous ends, Barael felt struck by lightning. By purpose.

Personality & Appearance:

At 24 years of age, Barael already dons a head of hair of a 60 year old, with salt and pepper reflecting the stress and accelerated aging of a young man never at rest, or at peace for that matter. His skin is well tanned, and his short stature of 5'4" lets him blend into a working crowd well enough. His eyes sport an assortment of greens and greys, leaning towards the green when his fight-or-flight nerves are touched.

Barael wears a layered leather armor that is sized just a little large for his torso, and he's inclined to retract his head a bit downwards, lending to an appearance of a turtle retracting into his shell a little.
His inclinations to the Korvosan Guard has led him to tailor a shirt and pants in the crimson and black motif, and he cherishes it. His mother has never laid eyes on this set of clothing.

Barael's first instinct when assessing another person's hand gesture towards him is to place enough distance between himself and the hand to avoid the touch at his discretion. He doesn't realize it consciously, but he is mostly aware of how much personal space has been violated, and takes measure to avoid a repeat incursion. Not quite a flinch, but often mistaken for it.
