Bio: Prince Baran was the Prince and absolute ruler of Madripoor. While not actually a Supervillain, he was sometimes on the "bad side". One example of this is Wolverine #17 when it is revealed that he has made a deal with the villain Geist. At one time, he employed private eye Jessica Drew as a spy. She was told to keep an eye on several people, including Patch. Eventually, when Wolverine found out that the Prince had made a deal with Geist, he humiliated him in front of many of his subjects.
