Barnabas "Barn" O'Toole

Loyal lackey of Pasht; kept alive by her blood.

  • Origin: Terra
  • Home: Terraree (assumed)
  • Race: human (revenant)
  • Gender: male

Barnabas "Barn" O'Toole is a long-suffering, but faithful, attendant to Pasht. He is a white man, probably of Irish ancestry. He looks middle-aged but is older than he appears, thanks to regular doses of vampiric blood to bind him to his master's domination. If he does not drink fresh vampiric blood at certain intervals, his human age will show, and by now that means "natural" death for him. Ergo, if Pasht dies, he will follow her before long.

Barn does not appear on his own, but accompanies Pasht on occasion. She quite abuses his good graces, but he remains in her thrall, simply glad to be alongside her. Pasht constantly has him carry her shopping bags and the like. This does not make him a pushover; he often intervenes to save Pasht from her own self-destructive behaviour.

In full life, Barn may have had iron-rich blood, making him an ideal meal for a considerate vampire—right up until he became a ghoul for reasons not yet known.

His first appearance was in the story Club Carpe Noctem, where he briefly appeared as "Stoolie", Pasht's stool pigeon.


The name of Barnabas is a deliberate play on the major vampire character in Dark Shadows.
