Nfirea is a young boy with short blonde hair that half-covers his face like a bowl cut. He is dressed in ragged work clothes from the potion making workshop.
Nfirea is described as a nice, calm and timid person. He works hard at making potions with his grandmother every day.
He also has a minor inferiority complex, due to comparing himself to Ainz.
Nfirea Bareare was raised by his grandmother, Lizzie Bareare since he was young after his parents died; he only has murky impressions of them. His grandmother made him her apprentice and was taught everything she knew about herbs, alchemy, and potion-making. He met Enri Emmot at some point while delivering potions to Carne Village and developed feelings for her.

Nfirea requested Momon and the Swords of Darkness to help gather some herbs from the Great Forest of Tob near Carne Village, however, his true intention was to get closer to Momon and learn how to make the unknown red potion. After returning from the quest he got kidnapped by Khajiit Dale Badantel and Clementine to be used as part of the ritual in order to turned Khajiit into an Elder Lich and forced to wear the Crown of Wisdom, which left him in a blank state.

Nfirea and his grandmother are shown to be hard at work in Carne Village making new potions using equipment given to them by Lupusregina Beta from Ainz Ooal Gown. It is also stated that they serve as the towns new apothecary.
Nfirea tells Enri about a new potion that he and his grandmother made when she comes to his house. Later, Nfirea joins Enri and a few goblins in picking herbs in the Great Forest of Tob. While there, they encountered a young hobgoblin being chased by a Barghest. Because Enri wished to help him, the goblins and Nfirea fought and killed the beast. They decided to bring Agu with them to get information on what was happening inside the forest. Agu tells them that due to the appearance of the Monument of Ruin, and the disappearance of the Beast of the South, the balance of power in the forest has shifted. Nfirea and the others are worried they may be attacked by the Giant of the East or Serpent of the West that Agu talks about. Nfirea suggests Enri go to E-Rantel and tell the Adventurer's Guild about the monsters in case they can help. Later that night, Nfirea is present when Enri puts on an act to take command of the members of Agu's tribe that arrived so that they won't betray the village.
A few days later, Nfirea greets Enri after she returns from E-Rantel. He tells her his reason as to why she should become the new chief of Carne Village. After Enri becomes chief, Nfirea becomes her tutor to learn the basic education needed for the position.
When the village is attacked by the monsters, Nfirea gives Agu his alchemical items to use in the battle. He and Enri patrol the houses to see if anyone hasn't noticed the emergency. While patrolling they come across a troll who climbed over the wall. He and Enri use tricks to distract it and buy time for the others to fight the other monsters and then come help but this eventually fails. Nfirea decides to stay behind and fight by himself so that Enri can get help from the others. Right before she leaves, he tells her he loves her. Nfirea is able to hold up a little while, thanks to his magic, but is eventually incapacitated. He thinks that he is about to die when Lupusregina suddenly appears to defend him. She heals him and he limps away, to Enri who had just arrived with several goblins. They look in amazement when the troll is completely incinerated by Lupusregina's magic. Before she leaves, she tells them that they are invited to Ainz's house to celebrate the new potion Nfirea created.
Sometime later, Nfirea, alongside Enri and Nemu, is preparing to go to Ainz's house. Lupusregina arrives with Yuri Alpha, who uses a magic item to teleport them to Ainz's location, much to Nfirea's amazement. There they are greeted by numerous beautiful maids, impressive artwork and architecture, and delicious food and drinks. Nfirea feels intimidated by all of this and feels inferior compared to Ainz. He is comforted by Enri who tells him that she likes him just the way he is.

Nfirea was helping Enri in checking if they have enough food for the livestock and other matters when Jugem alerted them about an army approaching the village. They discover that the army is from the Kingdom and is led by Crown Prince Barbro. Nfirea suggests asking them why they are here to buy time for the demi-humans to hide. They hear from the army's messenger that Ainz Ooal Gown is an enemy of the Kingdom and that they have come to question them about what they know about the magic caster.
When Barbro orders the army to attack the village, the villagers decide to fight back. Enri, Nfirea, and a few others are in charge of taking the children to the forest to avoid the battle while the rest stay behind. When they leave via the back exit, they are ambushed by the enemy's cavalry. Nfirea decides to try and stay behind to stall them but this ends up being unnecessary when Enri uses her second Horn of the Goblin General to summon an army of goblins.
