After Draug is defeated by Itsuki and the others, Barry encourages Mamori to purify Draug with her newly awakened Performa and become his partner.
Barry is a comically excitable and intense person attracted to Japan's otaku culture. 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.
