Barul Barandel (バルル バランデル, Baruru Baranderu) is a fictional character within the book Continent of Magic: Chronicles of Ziral. He is the commander of the Royal Knights.
Barul is loud, often speaking and laughing loudly. He possesses an appreciation for those skilled at combat. When impressed by the combat skills of others, he will often clap excitedly and praise them.
Despite his high position in the army, Barul acts slightly incompetent at times. When he and his forces discover a Demon Garden Mushroom, he is unaware of what they are despite his subordinate Hyoriga suggesting he should already know. Before Hyoriga can warn him, Barul approaches it the mushroom triggering its activation. When confronted with the large amount of enemies spawning from the mushroom, he retreats back to allow the adventurers to handle them, citing their divine protection getting weaker in larger groups as an excuse for doing so. In spite of all this, he is willing to engage in battle when necessary, and possesses some competency with a sword.
Barul and his royal knights are ordered to exterminate the Demon King's forces that have recently been invading the country's outskirts. In order to bolster his force's numbers, he gathers adventures who achieved noteworthy results, offering millions of marls worth in rewards or more if they perform well. In order to limit the amount of participants who may join, Barul holds a small test to see which adventurers can survive the golems summoned by their magicians. As most of the adventures either flee or are incapacitated, Barul congratulates the only four who past the test, those being Deortha, Ulba, Kazuya Kagami and Kiriha. Venturing with his army and new forces, they discover a Demon Garden Mushroom. Before Hyoriga can warn Barul not to approach it carelessly, Barul steps forward triggering the mushroom to open and goblins to swarm out. Barul and his forces hide behind and let the four adventurers dispose of the threat. After the goblins are defeated, Barul applauds their work prematurely before Deortha and Ulba point out a path leading towards even more Demon Garden Mushrooms. All the Demon Garden Mushrooms are destroyed, and Kazuya and Kiriha are rewarded with 27 million marls.
Upon parting ways with the adventurers and returning to Yohne City, Barual and Hyoriga find a giant Demon Garden Mushroom in the middle of the city. Barul and his forces find Dabada Dabaharl and do battle with her Delmanitd minions. Barul and Hyoriga defeat the Delmantid but sustain heavy injuries and then turns to find Kazuya and Kiriha making out just before they fight Dabada. Dabada traps Kazuya and Kiriha within a stone dome which Barul attempts to damage to no avail. When trying to listen in to what is going on inside, he and his forces are pushed back by a shockwave.
After Dabada is defeated, Barul provides testimony for Kazuya and Kiriha when they are suspected of being spies of the Demon King's army. Kazuya and Kiriha continue aiding Barul in locating and exterminating any remaining Demon Garden Mushroom seeds or spies, being rewarded with money in return.
Experienced Combatant: Barul was one of the few that survived their encounter with the Delmantid that tore through other guards and soldiers with ease. His primary weapon of choice is a sword.
Divine Protection: Within Barul's world, adventurers and soldiers appear to receive divine protection from the gods. The larger a party is, the less protection they receive.
