Barry Fairbrother is a deceased man in his early forties (44 according to Gavin Hughes). Barry lived in the town of Pagford and he was a city council member, and the manager of the town's only bank branch.

Following his unexpected death, an election was held to fill his position. Three individuals began posting anonymous messages on the Pagford Parish Council website by hacking his account on the site and changing the username to Ghost_of_Barry_Fairbrother.
