Baileywick is the royal steward of the kingdom of Enchancia under King Roland II's rule.


Baileywick keeps to a strict schedule and is a hard worker; his catchphrase is "Let's make it work." He is loyal to King Roland and his family, which has made him to be considered a member of the family,[1] and a great friend by King Roland.[5] He is always there for them and tends to their needs, whatever they may be, even when he was giving time off for his own birthday.[1]

He has an affinity for Princess Sofia because they both come from a commoner background.[6]

He lends advice when necessary in a friendly manner, such as telling Princess Sofia it was wrong for her to lie even if she was protecting Prince James,[7] or telling Princess Amber that trying to make everything perfect was making the staff unhappy.[8]
