Michael Westen is a trained spy; while on assignment he receives a "burn notice" for an unstated reason, effectively he is fired. Penniless and dumped in his hometown of Miami, he tries to get his life in order. So Michael freelances his skills to earn money in an effort to find out who burned him and why.
Barry is a metrosexual and very successful money launderer who is often used by Michael as a source of information about, and introductions to, members of the Miami underworld. Michael also sometimes pays Barry to use his skills at doctoring financial records to help him create cover IDs and to frame his enemies for misconduct, gaining the nickname "Bad Checks Barry". Barry is fully aware of Michael's burn notice, but could not care less, as it is his business to deal with shady characters, but dodged Michael for awhile when he felt his life was in danger. As Michael's requests usually end up being high-risk for Barry, he is generally rather reluctant to deal with him.
