Sailor who served on the "Lucky Lady" under the captaincy of Umber Ianos 30 years ago, and was killed while they were delivering 100 barrels of sweet Ge'en apples from Aeras to Marcuria.
One night, as they lay with their sails down awaiting the winds towards Marcuria, Ianos (whose arms was down the apple barrel at the time) heard screaming from the port side of the ship. He arrived on the scene just in time to see Barni thrashing around in reddened water, and a "large, shiny, sleek body" pulling him down and swallowing him whole.
Ianos believes Barni was killed by Maerum, although it is more likely he was killed by a Snapjaw, as April suggests when he tells her the story.
