In most episodes Barrage is generally viewed as a obstacle to Lee's investigations. To this end Barrage has come to view Lee as a sort of rival, his favorite hobby being hunting Lee down and dragging him off to detention during free-period, Lunch, and After school and even patrolling the halls for him in case he turns out to be skipping school.
Despite this Barrage has come to respect Lee to a degree, such as one occasion affectionately calling him Private, also Barrage has shown admiration for some of Lee's alternate identities that he assumes during his investigations. Lee mutually dislikes Barage refering to him as a "Half cyborg-principal" on one occasion, to this end Barrage is a constant threat to Lee's investigations during detention.
According to the creators of Detentionaire the reason why he singled Lee out was cause he looked guilty and tried to make an example of him, as he was trying to figure what was up. The first couple episodes Barrage does think Lee is guilty. But as he learns more he knows he's innocent. But by then, Lee has annoyed him so much, that he likes to torment him.
