Barry Finnegan (born 1984) is a supporting character in The IT Files. The definition of a slacker, Barry spent most of his life in his mother's basement before going to jail for stalking Hollwood starlets, only to be broken out so he could join Ouroboros as Mr. Water.
Born in Oceanside, California, Barry lived a simple life, coasting through high school with a B average in spite of never studying and only doing work during school hours. After high school Barry lived in his mother's basement, making money designing websites and modifying electronics. One day on the internet he found a genuine Paradise Foundation Time-Stopper up for auction and bought it for a mere hundred dollars. Upon obtaining the item Barry used it to stalk Hollywood starlets, specifically going after Christine Huart when the International Temporal Enforcement Agency got involved. Tasia Spiro and Kioni Abasi, with a little help from Erika Stone, captured Barry and had him put in jail with no possibility of bail as he awaited his trial. Barry's crimes were classified to include assault and breaking and entering, sending him to jail for the minimum of three years.
Type-7 gas eventually flooded Barry's prison, during which he was rescued along with two other people by Mr. Void, who after instructing him for a few days on the drug as well as Time-Stoppers and the ITEA gave him the resources to get his revenge. Barry build a new Time-Stopper and attacked the ITEA leaders in Poland, even holding off Team Zeta when they tried to rescue those he'd captured, but Tasia Spiro got the better of him again, sending him back to jail. Barry was later broken out again and tasked with, along with Rajni Arora, capturing Tasia Spiro. Barry failed yet again and once again went to jail, but luckily when Ouroboros was taken down he was released on bail. Kioni Abasi tracked Barry however and he ended up becoming a part of her collection.
