A knight who ruled the castle of Trion and who desired to marry Queen Sebille.

Known as the Fairy Knight and the Black Knight, he had never been overcome in battle. He killed Sebille’s husband out of jealousy, intending to marry the queen by force. Sagremor, Sebille’s paramour, championed her against Baruc and defeated him in combat, forcing him to surrender to the queen.
