Barnabas was a Greek naval captain active during the Peloponnesian War. As the captain of the Adrestia, he became a vital companion to the Spartan mercenary Kassandra.[1][2]

In his youth, Barnabas was a soldier before turning to commercial shipping for a livelihood. In this capacity, he developed a network of contacts throughout Greece, including local leaders and mercenaries, who became a primary source of information for Kassandra. By offering his ship and crew to the Spartan mercenary, so that they might first leave Kephallonia, the two befriended.[1]


Barnabas was born in an olive grove on the island of Mykonos. He and his brothers later joined the Athenian army, serving as captains in the Athenian navy. One night during a siege, the fleet was destroyed during a storm. During the same incident, Barnabas claimed to have come face to face with Poseidon's "murderous pet", and lost his eye to it. He would eventually find himself a solo captain and soon reach Kephallonia.[3]

Personality and characteristics

Barnabas strongly believed in the old legends of heroes and mythical beasts, as well as that everybody's fate was predetermined by the gods. He also believed that the Pythia could never be controlled by anyone but the gods and was shocked upon the revelation that anyone could.[4] He also respected Kassandra's role, believing the gods set her upon this. He also has a habit of pointing out the mythical information of certain areas like Marathon. [5]
