- "What is it? If you don't need anything, leave me alone."
Barrett (バレット, Barrett) is a character from Rune Factory 2: A Fantasy Harvest Moon.
Barrett is the "bad boy" of Alvarna. He keeps to himself most of the time, but isn't afraid to share his opinion or ask questions. He simply prefers to be alone. He frequently requests construction materials from Kyle for some secret project. He also likes to read, and can understand very dense volumes. He has low self-esteem, however, and considers Kyle "weird" for hanging around with him. He suspects that most of the villagers dislike him, and in his bitterness, pushes them away.
Barrett has a fair complexion and blue eyes. He wears a red bandana that tilts over his left eye. His brown hair is messy, and he dresses simply in a white sleeveless shirt, white scarf, dull-purple pair of trousers and holster. He protects his wrists with long leather gauntlets.
Mayor Byron's son. Barrett and his father don't get along very well in the first generation, but seem to have made peace in the second generation. Barrett is friends with Max, though they don't see each other often. Max is the one who asks Kyle to be friends with Barrett, explaining that he might have a tough outer shell, but really is a good person.
If Kyle doesn't marry Dorothy, he will marry her on Fall 17th in the 3rd year. If you steal away Dorothy on their wedding, or marry her earlier than that, he will be shown in the 2nd generation with Yue as his wife instead. His child in the 2nd generation is Leonel and, despite his attitude, he becomes the afternoon teacher in the 2nd generation.
In the first generation, Barrett is standoffish and closes himself off from the rest of the village, including Kyle. However, as Kyle befriends him, his self-esteem improves and he realizes that he actually can be liked and understood by others. He also is collecting construction materials, but won't tell Kyle what they're for.
He teaches afternoon forging and workshop classes, apparently having practised on the materials Kyle helped him gather. He warns Aaron/Aria sternly to stay out of the dungeon, but when they bring him the first set of tablets, he agrees to help translate them.He is much less distant in the 2nd generation than he is in the 1st generation, hanging out with Jake on the Docks when he isn't teaching.
Barrett's favourite gift is a rare fish: Salmon. But his friendship can also be plied with Iron and Scrap Iron, which are common drops in all the dungeons.
