The Troubled Lands
Barric is a dwarf warrior from Long Reach, who was captured by Beastmen in the uprising at Anvilmount. He was freed by the then-members of Captain Elbi's expedition, so that he could lead them to gunpowder in the tunnels under Hillcrest. Afterward, they parted ways, and Barric attempted to flee the peninsula with his family.
When Tartarus was ripped open, Barric's family were killed by the undead armies of The Godvessel, and he barely escaped on his own. He was then captured by pirates and taken as a slave, to be sold in Port Fortune. He was fortunate to meet his earlier saviours once again, who granted him and the other slaves freedom, and offered them the chance to serve as the crew of the Waveblade.
Since then, Barric has been an important member of the crew, and the voice of the former slaves aboard ship.
