I don't know what you mean by background and motivation. I was came across this problem when I was studying Q-groups in the book "Structure and Representations of Q-Groups" by Dennis Kletzing. I needed to know, what can happen if we put more restriction. Is that produce an infinite class of groups like Q-groups, or not. This was the most obvious extension I could have think of. Characters turning away many other information about representations. Problem get a lot challenging when we look representation. I know the answer for this, if I was just taking characters rather than representations.

Update! This result is valid for all groups of order less than 460 up to now (verified by computers).

$D_6, D_8, D_{12}, A_4, S_4, A_4\times \mathbb{Z}_2, D_6\times \mathbb{Z}_4, D_8\times \mathbb{Z}_3$ (where $D_n$ is the dihedral group of order $n$) are the only groups I have found satisfying the conditions stated in the problem.

@Stefan Kohl, b can be anything other than an involution (and obviously identity) so I edited again. thanks

When does the modulus of a sum of an integer and an algebraic integer equal an integer?
So, what is this telling us regarding Z and |Z|?!!
