Pierre de Barral
Prosecutor for the Parlement de Dauphiné
Bureacracy – Master
Magistracy – Master
The youngest son of a distinguished Dauphinois sword noble family, Pierre de Barral is a prosecutor for the Parlement de Dauphiné in Grenoble. A skilful litigator, Barral (b. 1588) is also a member of Le Drapeau Italien, currently serving as a secretary to the club. He is married to Louise de Boniel; the couple has a young son, Louis-Gaspard.
Pierre’s owlish face masks an investigative style reminiscent of a dog worrying a soup-bone until every scrap is removed and the bone licked clean.
His cousin Claude is a magistrate.
