Character Information

Appearance

Brighid is a gorgeous young woman in her late 20s, about 5'6" tall with blue-grey eyes and long, curly blonde hair. She wears hippie-style clothes in bright colours, and pale foundation with bright eyeshadows, lipsticks, and rouges that make her look like a porcelain doll.

Personality

Bright and cheerful, Brighid is an eternal optimist who believes in hope no matter what she's going through. A quick wit and sharp tongue that's as likely to be turned on herself as anyone else, she gets along with an odd assortment of people, making people laugh at her ridiculousness within a breath of them having eyerolled at her sunny optimism.

Background

Born and raised on a cattle farm near Wellington, New Zealand, Brighid is a third generation hippie chick and SCA nerd, and one of the youngest Laurels in the NZ SCA's history. She has both a Bachelor's and Master's of Music, and has built a career as one of NZ's leading fantasy folk musicians.

She Awakened while still at university, joining fellow free spirits in the Free Council, and fought in the Ten Second War in 2012, where, due to both the War and the psychic backlash immediately afterwards, she was the lone survivor of her cabal. She joined with other survivors to form New Zealand's Compact, and has been a strong proponent of it ever since.
