A baron is a high-ranking member of royalty. Mostly.
Since being a baron is a hereditary position, the one standing in front of you is very likely a totally inbred feeb. Plus, you must remember that his ancestor got to be where he was for helping the king kill off the king's enemies. So, never turn your back on a baron. Further, if that baron reaches for a letter opener or goes to the kitchen for a knife, RUN LIKE HELL.
