Isolated from the rest of known space for centuries by an accident that cut off contact with the rest of humanity, Barrayar survived by reverting to a feudal system based on a [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy warrior caste]]. Unfortunately, their welcome back to the greater galaxy came in the form of an invasion by the Cetagandan empire, which they ultimately defeated through sheer bloody-mindedness (and perhaps being simply too crazy to give up). Barrayar is now struggling to adjust to a galaxy that views its social model as anything from quaintly anachronistic to dangerously primitive. Ruled by the ''Vor'' warrior caste, with TheEmperor at their head. The homeworld of [[BadAss Miles]], who has to deal with Barrayar's nasty prejudice against [[GeniusCripple mutants like him]], and the focus (and often the setting) of the Vorkosigan series.

Brother of Yuri and ambassador for the resistance. Usually spoken of in a positive light even from the point of view of modern Barrayar. Miles great grandfather through his daughter Princess Olivia and the source of Miles' (and Aral's) arguable claim to the throne.

* {{Ambadassador}}: He was Barayar's ambassador to Beta when the Cetagandans invaded, which is why he was off-world and may explain his relatively cosmopolitan attitudes for a man of his generation.

* InformedAttractiveness: Averted strongly. Cordelia is never described as beautiful or even pretty. She calls her looks "serviceable". It's her authoritativeness that wins Aral over, as well as her devotion to her men -- everything a soldier should be.
