Baraek Brigson is a member of the criminal Phoenix Gang who poses as a fur trader in the Varrock Square. He helped Lord Sulla and Jerrod get into the city in 165. He will purchase bear fur for 12 coins each. If you choose the option that his price is unreasonable, he will pay 18 coins each. If players are wearing the Ring of Charos (a) he will pay 20 coins each.
If players have unnoted grey wolf fur in their inventory, a new option will appear when talking to Baraek - "Would you like to buy my grey wolf fur?". He will buy them for 120 coins. If players are wearing the Ring of Charos (a), he will be persuaded to pay 150 coins per fur.
Baraek plays a small role in the quest Shield of Arrav. If players wish to be in the Phoenix Gang, he must be bribed to reveal the location of their headquarters.
If you try to buy furs from him but don't have sufficient money with you, he claims he has a family to feed. In the Varrock Census taken in the Year 160 of the Fifth Age, 10 years before the current date, he is the only Brigson listed, though it is possible that he has since obtained a family or that they were listed under a different name.
