Baron
Baron Humbert von Gikkingen, also known simply as "Baron", is a major character in the 1995 film Whisper of the Heart and the title deuteragonist of the 2002 film The Cat Returns. He is a (living) statue of an anthropomorphic cat who is fully dressed (including a top hat and shoes). At night in the "real" world or anytime in the Cat Kingdom, he is alive. He belongs to the owner of an antique shop named Shiro Nishi. In The Cat Returns, he owns the Cat Bureau. In the original Japanese versions of Whisper of the Heart and The Cat Returns, he is voiced by Yoshihiko Hakamada and Shigeru Tsuyuguchi, respectively, while in the English version of both films, Cary Elwes did his voice.
