Baraud is an Agrikan priest, nominally of the Order of Herpa the Mace. He is now 26 years old and of the third circle. Secretly, though, he is a sympathizer with the schismatic Order of Eight Demons. When the schism occurred six years ago, he was an acolyte under a master who was firmly against the schismatics and he felt unable to follow his true beliefs. Since that time his sympathies have grown and he has grown more confidant. However, he has kept up all appearances of loyalty and discretely contacted the Order of Eight Demons to work for their cause from within Herpa the Mace.
Baraud grew up in a rural military family, from a shire north of Golotha. His father was a relatively wealthy yeoman man-at-arms. He was the fourth of nine children. He went off to Golotha to train as a acolyte at the temple. He was shocked at the horrendous corruption and squalor of Morgathian-dominated Golotha, and felt that change was needed to assault it. There were many issues that drew him to the Order of Eight Demons. One of them is gender roles -- men should fight, and women should support and motivate. This motivates a particular dislike of Laranism, which he feels encourages hypocritical weakness especially in women. Another is guidance. While he believes in mystical journeys, he feels that Herpa the Mace does little to channel mystic experience into energetic action.
His current goals are to further the interests of the Order of Eight Demons by sabotaging the political connections of Herpa the Mace.
