Baruk (バルク) is an antagonist of Ys V: Kefin, The Lost City of Sand. A sorcerer of small stature, he turns out to be one of the three lieutenants under Rije's command.


Along with Karion and Abyss, Baruk came to the outside world with his master Rije when the seal on Kefin got weakened. They seek to find the six crystals that act as the seals on Kefin.

In GamesEdit

Ys V: Kefin, The Lost City of SandEdit

Baruk first appears with Rije and other lieutenants in the middle of the game when Rije uses all six crystals to break the seal on Kefin completely, causing the ancient city to appear once again.

Near the end of the game, Baruk confronts Adol at the top of the Southern Tower in Kefin. Taking Niena as a hostage, he taunts Adol. Thankfully, the Evil gang, who have been hiding behind the pillars, takes Niena to safety while Baruk isn't looking. Realizing that his hostage is gone, Baruk is enraged and engages Adol in a battle but is defeated.



  • In the original concept, Karion, Abyss, and Baruk do not appear. Their role is replaced by an anonymous Kefin officer.
