Barry J. Bluejeans is a fighter who escorted Gundren Rockseeker to Phandalin. He is a little bit on the overweight side. He resembles actor Tom Arnold.

History Edit

Barry Bluejeans originates from another planar system, where he was part of the Institute of Planar Research and Exploration and recruited as head science officer of the Starblaster. On the eve of the Starblaster's maiden voyage, the Hunger attacked and consumed his home plane, forcing him and the rest of the Starblaster's crew to wander the multiverse for a full century.

Here There Be GerblinsEdit

As Barry and Gundren are traveling to Phandalin, they are captured by Klarg's band of gerblins and taken to his cave. The gerblins hand Gundren over to the Black Spider but hang on to Barry. Tres Horny Boys eventually storm the cave and attack the gerblins holding him captive. Seeing how the battle is going poorly for them, one of the gerblins grabs Barry and threatens to drop him off a cliff if the boys don't lower their weapons. The gerblin introduces himself as Yeemick and makes a deal with the boys. They will kill his boss, Klarg, for him in exchange for getting Barry back.

After double-crossing Yeemick and helping Klarg kill him instead, the boys bring Barry to their cart. The boys want to get right on tracking down Gundren but Barry is pretty knackered and convinces them to bring him to Phandalin first. He explains how Gundren's magic blood map works and using Merle's blood, they reveal the location of Wave Echo Cave. Barry stays in Phandalin as the boys head out to rescue their employer.

Gundren returns to Phandalin, enraged and on fire as he is possessed by the Phoenix Fire Gauntlet. Barry attempts to calm him down and the boys eventually arrive to help him in this endeavor. Things seem to be going well until Gundren is struck by an arrow, fired by the orc boy Kurtze. The boys take refuge at the bottom of a well but Barry is incinerated, along with the rest of Phandalin, as Gundren goes supernova.
