Barris was injured in the eyes and rendered blind in his childhood, around 72 to 68 bX. Unable to fight in the Garnites' wars as a young man, he became the Garnite's wise man. He is able to understand a type of text similar to Braille.
It is possible that Barris himself at one point guessed the Sacred Riddle of the Panthai.
