Sid Barett.png

Sid Barett is a character in Soul Eater and a teacher in DWMA and a high-ranking member of the DWMA Central Intelligence Agency. Though killed in action by Shaula Gorgon, he is later resurrected as a zombie by Franken Stein.


Prior to his death, Sid was known to be a friendly and well-respected teacher, having earned admiration and respect from not only the students he taught, whether they were in the EAT or NOT class, but even the likes of the staff such as Death and his weapon partner, Mira Naigus. While Sid was somewhat strict in his teachings (chopping Maka Albarn for wasting an underclassmen's time, not assisting the students when Hero obtained Excalibur) as matter of fact, he deeply cared for all his students. He was also merciful and loved children even at a young age of 13, having been the one to not only spare Black☆Star's life but accept him as his own son. He also was an individual never hesitated in helping a student and inspire them to unleash their latent potential. He also described himself as a stubborn individual, and that is the "Kind of man he is", a phrase in which would later be reworded to fit his status as a zombie.

Even when he resurfaced as a Zombie, he still retained all his previous traits. While he initially portrayed himself to want to kill his students for them to be relieved of the fear of death, this ended up being a ruse in which the remedial lesson was to strengthen them, a part he played in willingly to help his students grow stronger. In addition, Sid carries himself as a professional and follows orders to the letter, a case he would use to spare Mifune since his mission wasn't to end the samurai's life and admitted to Joe Buttataki. and that he found value in Mifune as a character. Sid is also known for describing and critiquing himself, often saying "That's the kind of man I was".

Though Sid has many respectable qualities, however, he is a low-key pervert. When threaten for information on who turned him into a zombie, he confessed once Black☆Star lifted up Tsubaki Nakatsukasa's skirt. When Soul tried to use Maka's sex appeal to get the location of the man who turned him into a zombie, he admitted it wasn't attractive. However, this part of his personality is only present in the manga and excluded in the anime.
