The Baron is a gentleman , so he belongs to a noble family by birth. He is courageous because he fights hard to get Belinda's lock of hair. This is The Baron's cause . Before he achieves his aim , he has to do some ritual work. First, he has to get the power from the Gods. He sacrificies some presents he got from his ex-lovers. As a result, the Gods give him little power. Any hero will sacrificy himself and get all the power from the Gods , but the Baron's case is different. Finally, the Baron can clip the lock from Belinda's hair while they are at a party in a palace. The Baron has got some help from "his lady, Clarissa" to do so; she has got the scissors. He has also won the battle against Belinda's sylphs after he has tried three times to cut Belinda's hair.
