"A quiet man who comes from a faraway place for mysterious reasons. He has a talent for pointing out what raw materials are used in weapons and more, but beyond that he doesn't volunteer much about himself unless asked."
―Website Description

Barrett (バレット, Baretto) is a character in Rune Factory 4 and Rune Factory 4 Special.



Barrett is a character from Rune Factory 2, but has come to Selphia to investigate the monster gates. He can examine Lest or Frey's equipment and will tell them which materials were used to upgrade said item.

The main character will tease Barrett about his drinking habits (though he doesn't have any), trying to say that he was drunk instead of nauseous from an airship ride and teasing him when they think he asks for sake instead of salmon.


Since the ending of Rune Factory 2, Barrett has developed a new hairstyle. He claims that the children in his class put his hair in his braid while asleep. Since it made his students happy, he decided to keep it.


Barrett will be brought in by Arthur when the residents of Selphia band together to try and find access to the Forest of Beginnings so they can reach Leon and rescue Ventuswill. Barrett will speak about an ancient spell called Omni Gate, which was previously used by another Earthmate to retrieve a person.

When Lest/Frey reveals themselves as an Earthmate, Barrett will teach them how to use the spell. He also entrusts a special item to Lest/Frey for their journey, giving them an accessory that will be able to bring one person back to the real world from the Forest of Beginnings.

During Arc 3, Leon will ask Barrett if it's possible to remake the same accessory handed to Lest/Frey in order to bring someone back from the Forest of Beginnings. Barrett will respond that he was not able to keep the recipe as it was only an accidental success.


Barrett will briefly tell the main character that he has a wife, who is unnamed, and a son named Leonel, who is quiet and nice. He has also had another child: a baby daughter named Yuri, who he claims is a tomboy and will be trouble when she's older.

Barrett comments on the De Sainte-Coquille family in Selphia, saying that he could tell there was with just one look, and wonders if Max will look similar to the older members of the De Sainte-Coquille family one day.

Once Barrett is befriended, he can join Lest/Frey in dungeons.

Neutral Oh, thanks. I appreciate it.

I'd rather not take it, but it's bad to waste stuff. I guess I'll try to find some use for it...

Ugh, I hate this stuff...
But I hate wasting things even more. I'll take it home with me.

  • The Lest/Frey's joke about Salmon and Sake comes from the Japanese language, where both Salmon and Sake are "sake" but at different tones.
  • The airship makes him nauseous.
  • Barrett can be summoned to visit Selphia every day through the Prince/Princess Points system by using 300 Prince/Princess Points.
