Little is known about Baram's background besides the fact that his father is a shaman. Though he and Sophia share the same surname, he clams not to know her.
For a preteen, Baram seems unusually mature. although, he is not above making fun of his comrades, calling Si Mun and Tenka "old geezers." He seems to respect Sophia enough to call her "nuna" but calls Tenka "ahjusshi," an honorific indicating someone of much greater age. His age and height are something of sore spots.
Perhaps because of his familial background, Baram tends to speak with an heir of confidence and wisdom, a trait that Si Mun sought out to help explain his own misunderstandings about spirits and exorcists.
Baram has the ability to read the imprints souls leave on their surroundings. This includes their memories, but often, one memory (usually the spirit's death) is more prevalent than the others. Because so many souls occupy a place at a time, it can often take a significant amount of time to sift through the information, but it is a skill that he has mastered.
