Location
Bad Grief's Nest (Day 9)

Barley the Barber is a criminal and former member of Bad Grief's gang, having separated due to disagreements in leadership.

Plot

Haruspex Route

When speaking to Bad Grief in the Cathedral on Day 9, he admits that there are men led by Barley in his former warehouse. Haruspex concedes to paying the men a visit, to see if he can let them know Bad Grief will not be returning. Haruspex can choose to fight Barley and his men, earning him Grief's Shotgun. If he leaves Barley and the men alone, Barley will provide the same services as Grief used to.

Barley can also be interacted with if Bad Grief had died before Day 9. He will jeer at the Haruspex for not knowing his friend is "six feet under". The confrontation may end the same, either in the death of Barley or the reopening of the shop.

Notes

  • Barley shares his model with regular thug NPCs and does not have a unique appearance.
  • In the translation for Pathologic 2, there was some consideration on what to name Barley due to language complications and barriers.[1]

Barley the Barber is a criminal and former member of Bad Grief's gang, having separated due to disagreements in leadership.

Plot

Bachelor Route

On Day 4, the Bachelor is sent to discover if Bad Grief's men were responsible for all the killings that have been happening in the town. Grief will tell him that the ones responsible for killing people have been following Barley and asks the Bachelor to deal with Barley for him.

The Bachelor seeks help from Alexander Saburov, but must head to Barley's warehouse as well. Inside, he will be attacked by seven muggers, including Barley himself, and kill them. He then returns to Grief and tells him that Barley has been dealt with.

Haruspex Route

Barley does not appear during the Haruspex route.

Changeling Route

On Day 4, Changeling is told by her father Alexander Saburov to investigate if Bad Grief is responsible for the outbreak, as his men were seen stabbing people at night and dumping bodies into the river. Bad Grief claims that Barley is actually the mastermind behind such crimes, and that Changeling will be able to find evidence of such in Barley's warehouse. Clara finds a mysterious sack in the back area of the warehouse and brings it to Saburov.

It is revealed that the evidence — which is the severed head of one of Saburov's captains — was planted by Bad Grief to frame Barley of his responsibility for the stabbings. Changeling evokes this confession from Bad Grief with her hypnotic powers.
