“You're not gonna get any rest, rookies!”

Barry Goodman is a support character in Tokyo Mirage Sessions ♯FE.

Profile[edit | edit source]

Barry is a thirty-five year old retired musician that moved to Japan and currently works as a trainer and scout for Fortuna Entertainment, for three years now. Before the events of the game he was a Mirage Master himself and Draug's partner, but during a battle with a particularly tough Mirage he sacrificed all he had and lost his Mirage, succumbing to a deep depression afterwards. Although he is no Mirage Master, he can assist the party with Backup Skills, and in Encore he can assist in Session Attacks.

During Chapter 3: The Next Generation, Barry was captured and under control of the corrupted Draug. He managed to break free of Draug temporarily thanks to Mamori's singing just before Itsuki separated Barry's Performa from corrupted Draug. After Draug is defeated by Itsuki and the others, Barry encourages Mamori to purify Draug with her newly awakened Performa and become his partner.

His birthday is February 20.

Personality[edit | edit source]

Barry is a comically excitable and intense person attracted to Japan's otaku culture. Because he is not originally from Japan, he occasionally makes outbursts in English. He is a fan of the anime Dia Witch Iroha, which in the game's universe is a show marketed toward girls. He has a noted appreciation for Mamori Minamoto.

Despite this he takes his work very seriously and demands the best from the new recruits. As such, he can often be both overbearing in his sessions, but expects great things out of his trainees.
