Appearance

Nfirea is a young boy with short, bowl-cut blonde hair that covers half his face. He is dressed in ragged work clothes from the potion making workshop.

Personality

Nfirea is described as a nice, calm, and timid person. He works hard at making potions with his grandmother every day.

He also has a minor inferiority complex, due to comparing himself to Ainz. When finally winning Enri's heart, this complex finally went away, revealing a more shrewd side of his personality, becoming more analytical and a sharp wit to match, the first glance of this new side to his personality is him becoming suspicious of Lord Ainz, after the goblins fought the Zombie Troll, though despite his suspicions, his loyalty to Ainz remains strong.

Background

At a young age, Nfirea Bareare was raised by his grandmother Lizzie Bareare after his parents died; he only has murky impressions of them. His grandmother made him her apprentice and taught him everything she knew about herbs, alchemy, and potion-making. He met Enri Emmot while delivering potions to Carne Village and developed feelings for her. Nfirea is also a famous talent holder, born with the ability to use any magic Item without limit or restriction.

Chronology

The Dark Warrior Arc

Main article: The Dark Warrior Arc

Nfirea requested Momon and the Swords of Darkness to help gather some herbs from the Great Forest of Tob near Carne Village, however, his true intention was to get closer to Momon so he could learn how to make the unknown red potion.[1] After returning from the quest, he was kidnapped by Khajiit Dale Badantel and Clementine, who intended to use his talent as part of the ritual to turn Khajiit into an Elder Lich. He was forced to wear the Crown of Wisdom, which left him in a blank state. He was later saved by Ainz, who healed his injuries.[2]

The Two Leaders Arc

Main article: The Two Leaders Arc

Nfirea and his grandmother were hard at work in Carne Village making new potions, using equipment given to them by Lupusregina Beta from Ainz Ooal Gown. It was stated that they served as the town's new apothecary.

At his house, Nfirea told Enri about a new potion that he and his grandmother made. Later, Nfirea joined Enri and a few goblins in picking herbs in the Great Forest of Tob. While there, they encountered a young hobgoblin being chased by a Barghest. Because Enri wished to help him, the goblins and Nfirea fought and killed the beast. They decided to bring Agu with them to get information on what was happening inside the forest. Agu tells them that due to the appearance of the Monument of Ruin, and the disappearance of the Beast of the South, the balance of power in the forest has shifted. Nfirea and the others grew worried about being attacked by the Giant of the East or Demon Snake of the West that Agu previously mentioned. Nfirea suggested that Enri go to E-Rantel and ask the Adventurer's Guild for help against the monsters. Later that night, Nfirea accompanies Enri, where she puts on an act to take command of the members of Agu's tribe that arrived so that they wouldn't betray the village.

A few days later, Nfirea greets Enri after she returned from E-Rantel. He tells her why she should become the new chief of Carne Village. After Enri became chief, Nfirea becomes her tutor to help her learn the basics needed for the position.

When the village is attacked by the monsters, Nfirea gave Agu his alchemical items to use in battle. He and Enri went off to patrol the houses to see if anyone hadn't noticed the emergency. While patrolling, they came across a troll who climbed over the wall. He and Enri use tricks to distract it, and buy time for the others to fight the monsters as they were to help out afterward; however, this plan fails. Nfirea decided to stay behind and fight by himself so that Enri could get help from the others, and as she was leaving, he tells Enri that he loves her. Nfirea is able to fend off the monsters for a little while thanks to his magic but is eventually incapacitated. He thought that he was about to die until Lupusregina suddenly appeared with the intent of defending him. She heals him and he limps away and returns to Enri who had just arrived with several goblins. They looked on in amazement when the troll was completely incinerated by Lupusregina's magic. Before she leaves, she tells them that they are invited to Ainz's house to celebrate the new potion Nfirea created.[3]

Sometime later, Nfirea, alongside Enri and Nemu, were preparing to go to Ainz's house. Lupusregina arrived with Yuri Alpha, who used a magic item to teleport them to Ainz's location, much to Nfirea's amazement. There, they were greeted by numerous beautiful maids, impressive artwork and architecture, and delicious food and drink. Nfirea felt intimidated by all of this and inferior compared to Ainz. He was comforted by Enri who told him that she likes him just the way he is.[4]

The Magic Caster of Destroy Arc

Main article: The Magic Caster of Destroy Arc

Nfirea, along with Enri were checking if they had enough feed for the livestock when Jugem alerted them to an army approaching the village. They discovered that the army is from the Kingdom and led by none other than the Crown Prince Barbro. Nfirea suggests stalling them for a time until the demi-humans could hide. They heard from the army's messenger that Ainz Ooal Gown was an enemy of the Kingdom and they came to question them about what they knew about the magic caster.

When Barbro orders the army to attack the village, the villagers decided to fight back. Enri, Nfirea, and a few others were in charge of taking the children to the forest to avoid battle while the rest stayed behind. When they took the back exit, they were ambushed by the enemy's cavalry. Nfirea decided to try and stay behind to stall them, however, Enri used her second Horn of the Goblin General to summon an army of goblins instead.[5]

Main article: The Craftsman of Dwarf Arc

It's revealed that Enri and Nfirea have been married for around half a year. Enri mentioned that recently, Nfirea stopped his work in fabricating new potions and instead, had been helping her with her chief tasks and with the preservation of herbs for the village.[6]

The Half Elf God-kin Arc

Main article: The Half Elf God-kin Arc

By the time of Ainz’s vacation to the Elf Country, Nfirea and his grandmother had already successfully replicated the red potion, and were now working on trying to develop a version using cheaper herbs and alchemical solutions.

During his visit to the Dark Elf Village, as Ain Bell Fior, Ainz used what little he learned from Nfirea to convince Chief Pharmacist Mango Gilena to take him on as an apprentice to learn his medicinal secrets. During his studies with the dark elf pharmacist, Ain maintained a [Gate] to Nfirea to query him on herbs that he learned from his master.

It’s revealed that Nfirea is working on a herb cultivation experiment, setting test beds through the Tob Forest.[7]

Mass for the Dead Arc

Main article: Mass for the Dead Arc

After Enri's death caused by the Chaos Beasts that attacked Carne Village, Nfirea went into a deep depression. His grandmother seeing his loss, hired the protagonist and his team to journey to the abandoned village to retrieve Enri's remaining possessions. Once the adventurers acquired and delivered them to Lizzie Bareare, the old pharmacist hope that the items could give some consolation for her grandson.[8]

Nfirea's continued spiraled into anger over Enri's death, his hair having turned white and the boy developing an unhealthy obsession on the Chaos Beasts. He worked with Sophie Noia in order to develop a cure for Gazef Stronoff who had turned into a Contaminated Beast. He was encountered by the protagonist and his team in E-Rantel, where they witnessed him kill two thugs that were harassing Nemu. The adventurers approached the two, Nfirea immediately became wary of them though relaxed when Nemu recognized them as friends. However when they mentioned that they were the adventurers that saved Nemu, Nfirea grew bitter at hearing that but asked them to speak with them to learn more on the details of Enri's demise. After listening to their testimonies, Nfirea becomes further motivated to continue his work to make 'them' pay. Thanking the adventurers the boy quickly escorted Nemu away from the area.[9]

After the protagonist had saved the city of E-Rantel from Jaldabaoth and earned the trust of the Tripartite Alliance, he was given unilaterally power and thus sought Nfirea to lead an independent research institute. The genius was reluctant to take part as he was took focused on his own research in studying Chaos Beasts, to find ways to hurt and kill them as a means of revenge for killing his love. In the end the adventurer bought his participation by showing him a vial of Minor Healing Potion. Upon seeing the legendary potion, Nfirea agreed to become the director for the E-Rantel Magic Research Institute. Nfirea then began to create the facility in the E-Rantel's Cemetery with the likes of Sophie and Fluder Paradyne. Once the protagonist officially became the Territory Guardian of E-Rantel, the boy gave the new city ruler a tour of the institute and their progress.[10]

Upon the protagonist and Darkness's next visit to the E-Rantel Magic Research Institute, Nfirea reported to his benefactor that the supplies and equipment provided were or tremendous help to his research. He later took the group down to the lower levels of the institute where Fluder was examining an imprisoned Gazef Stronoff. With Soi's cooperation, he and Fluder observed her fight against the feral Warrior Captain. After which both he and the old wizard confirmed that Gazef's primitive impulses seemed to be declining, and his physical condition was stabilizing for some reason. The two researchers were unable to ascertain which treatments they were giving him led to his stability, though planned to conduct tests on other Contaminated Beasts to pinpoint which clinical trials were effective. Nfirea left the gathering to seek out Sophie to list any additional supplies she needed. When he returned he found that the protagonist wanted him to take mandatory leave so that the director of the institute could rest and recuperate. Nfirea protested this trying to argue that it would be a major security breach if he left the institute, though the protagonist countered that Nfirea's absence from the city would soon be noticed and that he needed to return home to allow the populace to know the genius pharmacist was alright.

No choice but to agree, Nfirea returned home late and found Lizzie and Nemu welcoming him back. Lizzie mentioned that the city's children were currently suffering from an illness. The news to him was not concerning as it had very little to do with Chaos Beasts. Nemu who's friends were affected by the illness wanted to asked for his help, but seeing the older boy's extremely haggard appearance asked him to rest instead not wishing to trouble him. The advice to rest was ignored and by the time the protagonist returned with the requested specimens he still found Nfirea to be looking exhausted. The protagonist and Fluder worried about Nfirea's mental state then had a heart to heart talk with him that she should avoiding getting too entrenched into his work as it would spell down for not just himself but his family and also the institute. Now seeing that his behavior was alienating him from his family, Nfirea agreed to try to take better care of himself and be more aware of other people's concern for him. To start Nfirea then made an initiative to put aside his obsession over the Cracks and Chaos Beasts to tackle the illness affecting the children for Nemu. At the Adventurer's Guild he formally requested escorts into the forest to seek out the Fruit of Longevity an ingredient which would cure the afflicted. Heeding his call were Darkness and Evileye who with permission of Pluton Ainzach guided Nfirea to the Great Forest of Tob There at the forest, Nfirea met the Wise King of the Forest, Hamsuke, who was tamed by the protagonist. Learning that the adventurers and pharmacist wanted to seek the Fruit of Longevity, Hamsuke guided them to their destination. Despite being in the same place where his love interest Enri Emmot died, Nfirea continued on as he did not want Enri's sister Nemu to be sad. Using his magic he easily defeating many monsters and Chaos Beasts that came their way. The ferocity of his attacks had to be restrained by his companions as his fireball attacks threatened to burn the forest. Once the giant slime guarding the tree bearing the fruit was defeated, Nfirea acquired the fruit. Hamsuke seeing Nfirea possess the fruit told him to decoct the seeds in order to make the medicine effective. There was some discussion on if it was alright for such a rare fruit to be used to cure the children in E-Rantel, and also how to avoid getting reprimanded by the temple as healing was under their authority. A plan was devised by the protagonist and Nfirea upon returning to his grandmother's workshop used the fruit to create a medicine disguised as candy. To make sure the delivery system was sound, he allowed Fluder to test it, who almost immediately found it to be same and sweet enough for children to accept. Batches of the candy were given to Evileye and Darkness to to distribute to all the children in the city.[11]

He was approached by the protagonist and Darkness for any information on suitable fiber plants from the Tob Forests that could be used to make fabric. Sadly his knowledge was only limited to herbs from the forest. Though he gave them all the information he had. In exchange he requested that the adventurers retrieve a tissue strong slime for Sophie Noia's experiments.[12]

For E-Rantel's Harvest Festival, Nfirea helped processed a Longevity Nut into a potion at the bequest of the protagonist to be used as a prize for the mock combat demonstration of the festival.[13]

The institute received a visit from Darkness, and were greeted by Nfirea and Sophie. He and Sophie learned that the adventurers were investigating whether or not remnants of Zurrernorn tried to use their old base where the institute now was located. However the adventurers were the only visitors that the institute received and none of the alarms or traps were activated. The protagonist curious if the members of Zurrernorn were connected to mutating slimes in the sewers asked Nifrea if perhaps the cultist could have gotten alchemical solution from the Pharmacist's Guild. But the young man stated that the solution had become more strictly monitored ever since the incident regarding with the accidental creation of a Super Giant Sanitary Slime.

When it was learned that the cultists planned to use their own Super Giant Sanitary Slime to conduct a Death Spiral, Nfirea and Sophie worked to help save the city. Using Sophie research of an "anti-slime agent" they made enough for the defenders of the city for an operation to destroy the slime within a few hours. Exhausted by the work, he and Sophie decided to head to bed.[14]

Nifrea would work with Fluder and Sophie to develop a possible method to create a cure for the Miasma, after Sophie discovered that the Melting Pot may have create the right conditions to eliminate the contamination. In the experiment, Sophie found that the use of contaminated slime succeeded in melting the Chaos Beast specimen but failed to produce the decontamination effect. She sees Nfirea's frown and thinks that the director is displeased for wasting valuable specimens which can't be helped given what they are trying to verify but the boy was merely trying to think what they are missing to make the process complete. When the group stumbled into a wall of how the acid from the contaminated slimes and normal slimes did not totally dissolve all the Chaos Beasts and yet remove the confirmation, Nfirea had an epiphany. Before he could share his idea, Soi nosily excused herself from the post as he detected that there was an intruder attempting to enter the facility.[15]

E-Rantel was hit by an invasion of Chaos Beasts from numerous Cracks that formed in the city. At the institute, though calls of an evacuation were made by the researchers Nfirea ordered them to remain where they were as the city was far less safe. One of his motivations of staying was to see through the current experiment Sophie was conducting. He later joined her and the other researchers there at the lower levels for safety. Help seemed to have arrived when Nimble Arc Dale Anoch and Leinas Rockbruise came with a contingent of imperial knights. It was short-lived when a Spear Chaos Beast teleported into the lower floors and slaughtered all the researchers and knights. Only Nfirea managed to barely survive and had enough energy to warn Soi and Fluder who arrived from the floor above. Soi defended the two magic casters until the protagonist and his allies came but even they were not enough to defeat the monster. Out of desperation, Nfirea crawled to the cell containing Gazef Stronoff and freed the imprisoned warrior, revealing that Sophie's experiment had partially cured the Warrior Captain. Not only was Gazef able to think rationally again but he retained his superhuman strength of when he was a Contaminated Beast making him fight on par with the Chaos Beast. When Brain and Climb showed up with Razor Edge to give to Gazef, things seemed hopefully until a Crack formed right in front of everyone, taking Fluder, the protagonist and Slimeko.[16]

After the protagonist returned back from the "other side" of the Crack, he led a rescue operation to retrieve the members of Darkness and the remaining Pleiades. Noting that there was a possibility of recovering others in the world beyond the Crack, the protagonist wanted to inform Nfirea.[17]

Nfirea was recovered days prior to the official international rescue team was sent beyond the Crack. After the miasma crisis that began affecting every inhabited city, Nfirea returned to a ruined E-Rantel with Sophie and Fluder from the Sorcerer Kingdom to aid the rescue team who were trying to restore order. He had a tearful reunion with Nemu who apologized to for not informing that he was alive sooner due to his obligations to the Sorcerer Kingdom.

Nfirea participated in disseminating a cure to bring the feral populace of E-Rantel back to their senses in the city square. He work to be familiar given his background in pharmacy and was fascinated by the decontamination process, obsessively wondering if it could be used to eradicate the Chaos Beasts.

The boy, Sophie and Fluder were noted to be insensitive on the issue of using human corpses to make a cure for the contamination. To Nfirea he found the current situation was perfect for conducting their experiments as they had a mountain of corpses and Chaos Stones to use. This caused Slimeko to question if the trio were really humans to begin with.

When Enhela appeared and soundlessly defeated Sebas, Nfirea was shocked and sensed that they were in a bad situation. After Enhela explained that part of his god's plan was to evolve humanity using the process of decontamination, Nfirea realized that the priest was referring to the side-effect of the cure. Those who were cured of the miasma contamination would not only regain their senses but also receive extraordinary enhancement as attested by Gazef Stronoff's example. If this happened on a larger scale for all humanity, the priest was right that it would indeed change the evolution of the human race.[18]

To better understand what that means, he can potentially use the Staff of Ainz Ooal Gown as if he was Momonga himself. For this reason, he is considered one of the most potentially dangerous people in the New World. However, his skill in alchemy and the great potential of his talent makes him one of Momonga's most valuable subjects.

Relationships

Enri Emmot

Before becoming her husband, Nfirea had romantic feelings for Enri, but couldn't admit them and was easily flustered when he was near her. In the past, he tried to comfort her upon finding out that her parents were killed. He was afraid of Enri falling in love with someone and became very jealous when she was with others because of it. He finally confessed to her during the 2nd Battle of Carne Village, and they became a couple after the fight and married not long after that. Unfortunately, Enri has a ridiculously strong sex drive and large amount of stamina; forcing poor Nfirea to down tons of stamina potions to stayisfy her.

Nemu Emmot

Nemu supported Nfirea when he tried to get along with Enri. After Nfirea and Enri became lovers, Nemu sometimes asks some awkward questions and enjoys their response with the goblins.

Lizzie Bareare

Both Nfirea and his grandmother are quite famous in E-Rantel for being well-known potion makers. He assists his grandmother in their workshop. She taught him everything she knows about alchemy and magic.

Ainz Ooal Gown

When he first met Ainz under the name Momon, his only interest was his red potion and wanted to know how to make it. After he found out that Momon is actually Ainz, Nfirea is thankful to him for saving Enri and Carne Village and apologizes to Ainz for deceiving him. He admires Ainz's strength and even asked to be a part of his adventurer group so that he can become strong just like him. For some reason, Nifirea is willing to speak openly about his intimate times with his wife to Ainz. In return Ainz respects Nifirea and ensures the safety of his family as Nifirea's potion research is a much needed aspect of understanding the New World.

Lupusregina Beta

Lupusregina Beta is the battle maid sent by Ainz to protect the village. She has a friendly relationship with Nfirea, however, this is all a farce and part of her sadistic and evil personality. She is the one responsible for delivering the alchemical items and apparatuses to the Bareares as well as commanding the stone golems. Nfirea is one of the four most important people in Carne Village that Lupusregina must protect and must ensure they remain alive at all costs.

Goblin Troop

The Goblin Troop trusts Nfirea and knows that he harbors feelings with Enri. They are supportive and believe that he can offer her happiness and assist in making Enri reciprocate those feelings.

Trivia

  • In the Web Novel, Nfirea doesn't exist, and instead, Lizzie has a granddaughter named Fei Bareare.
  • Nfirea is the first person to find out that Momon is Ainz Ooal Gown. He is also one of, if not the only living person outside of Nazarick to know that both Ainz and Momon are the same individual.
  • Besides Clementine, Nfirea is one of the two people so far as to know about Momon's true identity as an undead.
  • Ainz regards Nfirea Bareare as one of the most important people in Carne Village, going as far as ordering Lupusregina to keep them alive at all costs.
  • In Mass for the Dead, Nfirea was driven mad with grief after the death of Enri Emmot. Though he and grandmother took care of Enri's single relative, Nemu, he was still grieving. To comfort him, Lizzie hired the game's protagonist to collect Enri belongings in the Carne Village for Nfirea.[19] However, the mementos were still obviously not enough to help Nfirea, who buried himself into his work to fight Contaminated Beasts and Chaos Beasts, blaming them for Enri's death.[20]

Quotes

  • (To the Swords of Darkness): "Um — it's because I don't want to let the person I like in Carne Village fall in love with Momon-san."
  • (To Enri about Ainz): "Enri, let's go. Our struggle is to live on. We can't lose that battle. And who knows, Ainz Ooal Gown-sama might come to save us again. At that time, it'll be better if we’re around, as the ones who set foot inside his domain."
