|Manga Debut||Chapter 001|
Little is known about Baram's background besides the fact that his father is a shaman. It is presumed that it is he who taught Baram such mastery of his powers. Still, baram keeps his father in the dark about the cases he solves with the department. Though he and Sophia share the same surname, he clams not to know her.
Baram is a middle-schooler with shoulder-length bright blue hair, that is usually either swept off to the side, or tied in a low ponytail. He can also be seen wearing a hat at times. When fighting, he wears traditional robes, but outside of the battlefield, he wears loose fitting t-shirts and shorts.
For a preteen, Baram seems unusually mature. although, he is not above making fun of his comrades, calling Si Mun and Tenka "old geezers." He seems to respect Sophia enough to call her "nuna" but calls Tenka "ahjusshi," an honorific indicating someone of much greater age. His age and height are something of sore spots. He does not like others underestimating him because of his age, nor people like Tenka berating him for his small stature.
Perhaps because of his familial background, Baram tends to speak with an heir of confidence and wisdom, a trait that Si Mun sought out to help explain his own misunderstandings about spirits and exorcists.
When dealing with spirits, he is not afraid to speak frankly and criticize more hostile ghosts for their actions. Ultimately, though, his goal is to help them peacefully ascend. As seen when he first met Si Mun and Tenka, he finds that battling spirits is disrespectful and encourages them to help solve the ghosts' resentments in order to help them. His reasoning behind this is because ghosts were once humans, too, and exorcists should show compassion.
Powers & AbilitiesEdit
Projections: Baram has the ability to read the imprints souls leave on their surroundings. This includes their memories, but often, one memory (usually the spirit's death) is more prevalent than the others. Because so many souls occupy a place at a time, it can often take a significant amount of time to sift through the information, but it is a skill that he has mastered.
Baram primarily utilized Ba Juk to use elemental seals, Thus far, he has used a wind spell to both safely land and levitate Si Mun, an earth spell to soften Tenka's fall from a building, and a gold spell as an offensive technique to ward of a spirit. Besides the Ba Juk, he uses an ornamental dagger with bells attached to tassels on the blade's hilt to focus his powers.
