Baran was the Duke of the city of Baran. The city was located on the southeast border of the Wickan Plains of Quon Tali.[1]

In Kellanved's ReachEdit

In the formative days of the Malazan Empire, Duke Baran had contracted with Skinner and his independent mercenary troop to slay Wickans and then to bring their scalps to the Duke. The Duke apparently coveted the nearby rich Wickan lands, and had decided that killing off as many Wickans as possible and then annexing their land was the best way to accomplish this goal. This arrangement between Duke Baran and Skinner was viewed by Malle of Gris with great disapproval and distaste. Under Duke Baran, the duchy was an ally of Gris.[2]
