Barley is a rabbit that is the almost spitting image of Clover, though his nails are longer and uncut. His right ear has a longer stripe of dark fur, which is a notable way to tell him apart from Clover.
Barley is very similar to Clover in personality. However he's not as lazy and gluttonous as Clover.
Role in the Series

Sofia asks him what he means leaving Barley shocked that she can understand him. Barley's behavior makes Sofia suspicious of him. After arriving back at the castle, Barley meets Rex, who he fears will expose him. However, upon realizing that Rex is too stupid to be a threat, Barley tricks the dog into leading him to Sofia's room where a still suspicious Sofia serves him a big lunch before leaving for Fencing Practice.
After he finishes the lunch, he plays fetch with Rex. When Sofia comes back and sees this, her suspicions are raised to the point of conviction since the Clover she knows never plays with Rex.

With her suspicions confirmed, Sofia angrily demands to know who he is and Barley finally admits the truth and tells her what happened. Sofia and Barley head out to find Clover. All the while Sofia glares at him, furious that he lied to her and tricked her into leaving her friend out in the wild by himself. They get stuck in the Woods.
