Only fools would dare oppose the almighty will of Baron.
Baigan first appears in the opening of the game, when Cecil Harvey returns to Baron with the Crystal of Water in hand. He notices something wrong with Cecil, but he takes Cecil to see the king, who was actually Cagnazzo, one of the Archfiends of Elements, in disguise. Baigan warns the king that Cecil has "developed quite a rebellious air," and the king agrees. Cecil hands the Crystal of Water to Baigan, who in turn gives it to the king.
However, Cecil then questions why he has to rob Crystals from innocent people, and the king immediately discharges him from the captainship of the Red Wings, and orders him and the Dragoon Kain Highwind to hunt Eidolons and to deliver a Carnelian Signet to Mist.
Baigan does not appear again until much later in the story, when Cecil, now a Paladin, sneaks into Baron in search of Cid Pollendina. He is accompanied by Tellah, Yang Fang Leiden, Palom, and Porom. They meet Baigan in the hallway, and he convinces Cecil that he is not under Golbez's control, because he is the Captain of the Guard. Cecil asks for his help, and Baigan obliges. However, Palom and Porom smell a monster in the area, and the smell is strongest near Baigan. Baigan reveals he is an ally of Golbez after all, and he transforms into a monster. Cecil's party then defeats Baigan, and Palom and Porom warn Cecil to tread lightly.
