|First Appearance:||Shadows of Youth|
Baron is a rich, highly regarded bully who antagonized Lance during his time in the military training academy. He is always seen together with two other upper-class students who aid him in his malicious tasks.
When he first met Lance, he insulted Lance's father, and enraged him to the point where he punched Baron in the face. He responded by beating Lance up for getting his shirt wet. Shortly afterward, he humiliated Lance by tying him in a bag and presenting him in his nightwear to the rest of the students. The headmaster dismissed Lance when he explained what happened due to his lack of proof and Baron's perfect record. Later, Lance defeated the trio in a fair game of zero-gravity combat training. In a petty fit of retaliation they wrecked Lance's room, and then called the headmaster to inspect it, landing his five demerits.
During the final exam, he and his flunkies wipe out the remaining competitors, save for Lance, who ran off in the opposite direction. After picking off his flunkies, Lance easily took out Baron, passing the exam and earning him the medal of excellence. This made Baron so infuriated that the next day he armed his clique with laser rifles and attempted to kill Lance. Lance managed to evade them until he reached the armor room, where he entered a Manus to defend himself. Baron also entered a Manus, and the two fought each other until Modula deactivated the suits. Both Lance and Baron were incarcerated, but Baron's parents bailed him out. Lance was forced to repair the damages that were done to the academy in their battle over the summer, while Baron went home with his apparently unfazed parents. It is currently unknown if he returns to the academy.
While being a stuck-up punk, Baron is a capable warrior, and adaptable tactician, and would have made Class lead and won the Medal of Excellence had Lance not arrived. He is also a very manipulative person, not above threatening or bullying people to get what he wants. When Lance "steals" the right to the Medal of Excellence from him, he goes all-out trying to kill him, first by forcing his cronies to steal blasters with him, and then commandeering a Manus unit to finish Lance off. His rich father also manages to pull a few strings in Barons favor, including bailing out of jail.
