Annabeth: "What are you doing? Get out of here! Now! You will receive no more lessons from me."
Barty: "Fine by me."
— Barty speaking with Annabeth[src]

Bartholomew Gales (2000-2019) was a male mutant and a NoHead Recruit. He was the son of Brooklyn Gales. Initially, Mr. Stupid NoHead controlled him through fear before training Bartholomew to harness his anger and other base emotions. Despite his loyalty, Barty felt himself being drawn to the light. He also had a crush on Annabeth, though he was able to conceal this. His worst fear was that Mr. Stupid NoHead would betray and murder him. After he saw a vision of himself turning against Mr. Stupid NoHead, the latter commissioned Annabeth to train Bartholomew in mind resistance in an effort to prevent further problems. Unfortunately, both of them struggled to cooperate, but the lessons ended of their own accord after Barty rebounded Annabeth's attack. It is implied that he no longer liked Annabeth after this. Like most of the other NoHead Recruits, Bartholomew returned to the Emergency NoHead Base[1]. Finally, NoHead appeared on a hologram and told everyone it was safe to return to the NoHead Base. When he returned to the NoHead Base, however, a squad of robot soldiers immediately opened fire, tearing down several unsuspecting NoHeads, including Barty.

Biography Edit

Early Life Edit

Bartholomew was born in 2000 to Brooklyn Gales. He had once had sex before, under a blanket. However, it is unknown if this happened in his room, or that of his girlfriend.

Between the Wars Edit

Mr. Stupid NoHead was recruiting NoHeads to join him in his quest for domination. As such, he endeavored to teach the ways of the dark side to Bartholomew, who willingly joined him. Initially, NoHead controlled him through fear before training Bartholomew to harness his anger and other base emotions. Despite his loyalty, Barty felt himself being drawn to the light.

Bartholomew also had a crush on Annabeth, though he was able to conceal this. Unbeknownst to anyone, he was willing to tell Mean King that he felt like she "doesn't even know I exist." His worst fear was that Mr. Stupid NoHead would betray and murder him.

Lessons with Annabeth Edit

Annabeth: "Aww. How sedimental."
Barty: "Stop it! That's private!"
Annabeth: "Not for me, it isn't. You're just as weak as Zach himself. Arrogant, self-centered, pathetic! You're a mere weakling!"
Barty: "Annabeth, I'm not weak!"
Annabeth: "Then prove it!"
— Annabeth probing Bartholomew's mind[src]

However, Bartholomew took on some much more pressing worries that night. He saw a vision in which he found Mr. Stupid NoHead being immolated by his holding a log, and upon waking up, he felt almost as if he wanted to betray the NoHeads in real life. Realizing what could happen if the link grew more powerful, Mr. Stupid NoHead commissioned Annabeth to train Bartholomew in mind resistance in an effort to prevent further problems. Unfortunately, Bartholomew did not enjoy having his mind peered into and did not focus on using mind resistance, having indeed been extremely curious about his conflict himself.

At one point, Annabeth learned about Barty's feelings for her, as well as the time he had sex. The visions also exposed Bartholomew's worst nightmare. Bartholomew shouted at Annabeth to stop, insisting those memories were private. Annabeth, however, only called him "just as weak as Zach himself." Bartholomew quickly caused Annabeth's following mind probe to rebound. He was able to witness an equally private memory of Annabeth being bullied and harassed by Zach Kellerman. Upon returning to reality, Annabeth became furious and refused to give him any more mind resistance lessons, something that Bartholomew was not particularly concerned about and something he did not inform anyone of, with the exception of Sean. Sean explained that Annabeth was under a lot of stress, and also revealed that she was younger than he thought she was (he thought she was in her thirties; she was only 19).[2]

It is implied that he no longer liked Annabeth after this.

Second NoHead War and Death Edit

Like most of the other NoHead Recruits, Bartholomew was aware the police would be dealt with soon. Around an hour later[3], Rotta told him that he needed to return to the Emergency NoHead Base. Barty accepted, and told the General that he knew of the two traitorous relief workers, suspected of being police, that had been captured by Annabeth's robot soldiers. Indeed, he had come to truly care for her. He then took off for the Emergency NoHead Base.

When the NoHead fleet emerged out of hyperspace at the Emergency NoHead Base, Barty landed in the base in an aircraft he shared with Sean, Qamar, and Kenzie. Inside, he was surprised to find several chambers where he could settle down, have a good meal, and clean up. Eventually, he overheard Sean telling Annabeth he feared NoHead had betrayed them, and tried to back up Sean's argument when Annabeth protested. Just then, NoHead called for them in the central chamber. With a grin, Annabeth told Sean and Barty they should reconsider, and then the two joined everyone else, who were regrouping in the chamber. Finally, Bartholomew joined them. NoHead appeared on a large hologram and told everyone it was safe to return to the NoHead Base.

When he returned to the NoHead Base, however, a squad of robot soldiers were waiting for him and the others. They immediately opened fire, tearing down several unsuspecting NoHeads, leaving Barty for last.

Personality and TraitsEdit

Bartholomew appeared to be very conflicted, as he constantly felt he "didn't have the guts to spend my life surrounded by villainy." Indeed, he constantly felt a pull to the Light side, though he ultimately remained loyal to the NoHeads. He also seemed to have respect for those who he owed it, more or less enforced, as he never disobeyed Mr. Stupid NoHead. He was also one to let bygones be bygones, as he had come to forgive Annabeth just two months after the end of their lessons. This extended to him liking her and fearing for her safety.

His greatest fear had always been Mr. Stupid NoHead betraying and murdering him.

Relationships Edit

Annabeth Edit

Annabeth, an enemy.

Barty: "Stop it! That's private!"
Annabeth: "Not for me, it isn't. You're just as weak as Zach himself. Arrogant, self-centered, pathetic! You're a mere weakling!"
Barty: "Barty"
Annabeth: "Annabeth, I'm not weak!"
— Annabeth speaking to Bartholomew[src]

While serving the NoHeads, Bartholomew had a crush on Annabeth. However, he was able to conceal this. Unbeknownst to anyone, he was willing to tell Mean King that he felt like she "doesn't even know I exist." On the other hand, Annabeth seemed to regard him coolly. During the brief period in which she gave private mind resistance lessons, Annabeth relished in forcing Barty to relive his worst memories.

At one point, Annabeth learned about Barty's feelings for her, as well as the time he had sex. The visions also exposed Bartholomew's worst nightmare. Bartholomew shouted at Annabeth to stop, insisting those memories were private. Annabeth, however, only called him "just as weak as Zach himself", which she probably believed to be true. It is implied that he no longer liked Annabeth after their lessons came to a sudden end. He was much more understanding of her, however, after Sean explained the reasons for her behavior. This not only caused him to get over it within two months' time but also admire and like her. By the time the Second NoHead War broke out, he had come to truly care for her. He seemed concerned when Annabeth's robots captured two traitorous relief workers, suspected of being police.

It is unknown quite how Annabeth reacted to Bartholomew's death.

Mr. Stupid NoHeadEdit

Bartholomew seemed to have a mixed relationship with his Master. His worst fear was that Mr. Stupid NoHead would betray and murder him.

Etymology Edit

The name "Bartholomew" originates from Βαρθολομαιος (Bartholomaios), which was the Greek form of an Aramaic name meaning "son of TALMAI". In the New Testament Bartholomew is the byname of an apostle also known as Nathaniel. Due to the popularity of this saint the name became common in England during the Middle Ages.[4]
