Ain is particularly uncomfortable of Barbara's presence as she is frightened of her pale white complexion, presumably having never seen a Russian before.

Well, yeah, just like the author if he seriously names his russian character BARBARA ANDREI. Though, admittedly, at least it looks like a name, she could have very well been called Elektrichka Sapsan like that poor girl from Pretty Cation.
