Barnabas John.

Barnabas: Aramaic, "Son of Prophecy".

Short, round, crippled, extremely nearsighted and remarkably ugly, Barney John is the popular leader and ideological shepherd of Reclamation. An inspiring public speaker who deeply believes in his own cause, Barney is much more level-headed and resilient to attack and criticism than his followers, but chafes at their perception of him as an indispensable icon.
