Like all Elves, Bartell has a white complexion, black stick-like legs and arms. However, he has a large beard and mustache, which is rather unusual for an Elf.
Bartell can be quite violent, and has a short fuse. He absolutely loathes paperwork, and insists to settle every conflict with combat. He also hates members of the Aldric Family considering the incident that led to his family being banished from the Northern Counties.
However, when you're on his good side, he can be surprisingly calm and friendly. When David was the Bragga's hostage, Bartell and the boy went along pretty well, with Bartell even helping David get rid of the bugs in his hair by tying his hair into tails, and later stating David set a good example for future hostages.
Bartell has been leader of the Bragga for an unknown amount of time.
When Hilda, Frida and David visited the Bragga village to search for a blue nettle, Bartell ordered his men to attack the three and had David taken hostage. When Alfur came to the village as well to try and end the Bragga's exile with a new contract, Bartell instantly recognizes him a a member of the Aldric family and refused to sign. Instead, he wanted Alfur to settle to old conflict by fighting the 10 rabbit warriors of the Bragga. Frida interfered and offered to find a solution that could benefit everybody. At her request, Alfur, Hilda and Frida sought out a Lindworm and had her destroy the contract; the only way to render any Elf contract void. Thus, the exile of the Bragga was ended.
Bartell had mixed feelings about this however, since he and his family had no desire to leave their home in the Wall of Trolberg. Thus, he willingly gave Alfur the plot of land that the two families had been arguing over all those years ago, and invited the three humans to celebrate the end of the conflict.
- Like the rest of the Bragga, he is exclusive to the animated series and the corresponding novelization. He does not appear in the graphic novels.
