Barateon is a human magic-user who originally supported Narathzul Arantheal's and Merzul's actions and their war against the Gods. However, when Narathzul killed god Erodan (previous ruler of Erothin) and became imprisoned by the Light-Born, Barateon resolved to pursue his own goals. Consequently, he seized the opportunity to take over the throne of Erothin and the whole of Nehrim. As the chancellor of Nehrim he aspired to incorporate the Northrealm into his kingdom. The ruler of the Northrealm, despite his country laying in ruins, due to the ongoing war, declared independence and is determined to defy Barateon's attacks. Barateon betrayed his former friends (Merzul and Narathzul) thus he focuses his actions on undermining The Order, first by enforcing anti-magic laws and ultimately by attacking Arcane Sanctum and killing Merzul. When faced with Narathzul Arantheal, Barateon chooses suicide by jumping off the tower, over being killed by his former ally.
