I found some evidence that all barbarians move before Gobwin Knob: "Turn at dawn means...Neither Charlescomm nor Transylvito are in the battlespace....Nor Barbarians."

Thanks, I had a feeling there was something like that said.

In context though, Wanda knew plenty about Jillian and has her on her mind enough that if there are barbarian non-capital "sides", she could easily have meant "Jillian's turn is before ours, so she isn't in the battlespace", so I guess Faq likely were barbarian when they approached Haffaton.

That's clever! I was really struggling with how to fit Wanda's words with the events of Book 0, but now that you explain it the answer seems obvious. Wanda wasn't talking about all Barbarians everywhere; all she was saying was that the Barbarians that they had been fighting would have had their turn before Gobwin Knob so they must have left the battlespace. That seems like an excellent solution to the apparent conflict, far simpler than imagining some anti-barbarism magic that no one in the story has ever mentioned.

That wouldn't work because Barbarians go on the same Turn as their allies, so Jillian would have never gone first at any point during the war.

Wanda may have anticipated that Jillian might have left or been laid off from the RCC, given their defeat and the death of Ansom.

It'd be too dangerous for Jillian to be there as a barbarian without being allied to a Side.
