Appearance(s)
Back when I was fighting alongside Lord Quan, there was a beautiful warrior in Lord Sigurd's army. As she stood there with her long blonde hair flowing in the wind, her sheer beauty reminded me of a goddess. She was the heir to the Jungby family, who had inherited the holy bow, the Yewfelle. Her name was... Briggid...
— Finn

(ブリギッド Burigiddo) is a noblewoman of Grannvale's House Jungby, a full-blooded descendant of the Crusader Ulir, the daughter of Lord Ring, the sister of Adean and Andorey, and the inheritor of the holy bow Yewfelle. She was separated from her family and adopted by the pirates of Orgahil as a young child, eventually rising to become their leader. During the Agustrian civil war she was reunited with Adean and joined her in Sigurd's army.

Years after the Battle of Belhalla, having lost her memories of her former life, Briggid re-emerged in Thracia as Eyvel (エーヴェル Eyvel), a travelling mercenary. She became the leader of the small village of Fiana and founded the Fiana Freeblades to defend the region from bandits. While in Fiana, Eyvel adopted Mareeta as her surrogate daughter, and helped protect the fugitive Prince Leif. In the year 776, when Nanna and Mareeta were abducted by Raydrik, she set out with Leif to rescue them and liberate the Thracia Peninsula, but was captured and turned to stone by Veld, motivating Leif to raise a revolution army to oppose Raydrik and Grannvale.

Biography

As Briggid

In her early childhood, Briggid accompanied Ring and her siblings on a religious pilgrimage to the Blagi Tower, but during the journey their ship was caught in a storm. Briggid was separated from her family as they evacuated the ship.[1] She was found by the pirates of Orgahil, a renowned "honorable pirate" gang, whose captain took her in as his adopted daughter.[2]

When her foster father died, Briggid succeeded him as the leader of the Orgahil pirates. Her leadership of the group continued her father's honorable tradition, believing herself to have a duty to aid the poor of Orgahil and Agustria, to the dismay of some of the band's members. In Grann 759, during the climax of the Agustrian civil war, her former subordinate Duvall led the pirates in a mutiny against Briggid in response to her criticism of their attacks on Agustrian villages, and during her escape she was reunited with Adean, now part of Sigurd's army fighting to defend the people of Agustria from the pirates. Adean convinced Briggid to attempt to draw Yewfelle, restoring her lost memories of her childhood in Jungby, and she joined Sigurd's army in fighting the pirates, in exile in Silesse and in Sigurd's ill-fated march on Grannvale to confront the lies perpetrated against him. At some point during this time, she had two children: Faval and Patty, who ended up in an orphanage in Conote.

As Eyvel

Briggid was present at the Battle of Belhalla and survived it, but was wounded and stripped of her memories. Six years after the battle, she was found washed up on the eastern coastline of Thracia by residents of the village of Iss, and was rescued and taken in by them.[3] Adopting the identity of Evyel, she took to travelling as a mercenary and came to the village Fiana, successfully freeing it from a long-standing bandit infestation. She became the leader of the village and established the Fiana Freeblades to defend it and the surrounding area. At some point during this time, she ventured to Conote and found a slave market attempting to sell Mareeta, for which she killed the slave traders and rescued Mareeta. Eyvel was unable to find Mareeta's father, and so took her in as her own adopted daughter.[4]

The year Grann 773 saw the arrival of three fugitives in Fiana: Leif, Nanna and Finn. Eyvel allowed all three to settle in hiding in Fiana and sought to protect them from possible pursuits by the Grannvale Empire, although as time wore on Leif and Finn started assisting the Freeblades in combat missions. In Grann 776, while returning from a pirate-fighting mission with Leif and the Fiana Freeblades, Eyvel found that Fiana had been assaulted by Raydrik and his army in their absence, and was now under their control. Though initially hesitant to let Leif get caught in the fight, or to rush into an uncertain situation, she nonetheless decided to storm the village to retake it. Once the army was driven out, she found that Nanna and Mareeta had been taken as hostages by Raydrik. At Leif's insistence, she decided to depart for Manster with the militia the next day, intending to rescue the two.

After the fight at Fort Kelbeth, when Raydrik arrived to capture Leif, Eyvel voluntarily also surrendered herself to captivity in order to look after Leif. The two and Lifis were taken to a prison in Manster, and Eyvel was taken by Raydrik to an arena in the upper castle in order to see Nanna and Mareeta. In the arena, she and Nanna were pitted against several warriors, with Raydrik promising that she could see Mareeta if the warriors were defeated; when she did so, Mareeta was let into the arena, brainwashed by the Darkness Sword and seeking to kill Eyvel; Veld then turned Eyvel to stone.

Some time later, after the defeat of Raydrik, obtaining the Kia staff and learning that Sara was capable of using it, Leif travelled to the Loptyrian temple to which Veld had retreated, and there found the still-petrified Eyvel and had Sara cure her. There, she reunited with the Fiana Freeblades, was thanked by Galzus for raising Mareeta where he could not, and was approached by Finn about her true identity. Despite Finn's certainty that he had previously known Eyvel as Briggid, Eyvel denied the possibility of being a Crusader's heir as outlandish. Nonetheless, years after the conflict ended, her memory of her true identity as Briggid eventually returned and she was reunited with Faval and Patty, now adults and the rulers of House Jungby.

Personality and character

In contrast to her calm and reserved sister, Briggid was energetic, headstrong and fierce. She never wasted words, preferring to cut straight to the point in no uncertain terms, and did not take kindly to attempts by her pirate subordinates to contravene her mission of honesty and charity. In her Eyvel persona, while still as determined to defend the weak as ever, she mellowed slightly and adopted a more maternal persona. Leif, Nanna and many of the youths of Fiana all came to view Eyvel as a mother figure in their lives, playing a strong role in their upbringing and development in the absence of their lost mothers.[5]

Trivia

  • In Genealogy of the Holy War, Briggid is the only female parent capable of passing down major Holy Blood, and as such her son Faval is the only child character who will always possess major holy blood regardless of their father (not counting fixed characters like Julia).
  • In Thracia 776, if Eyvel is not rescued from her petrification in Chapter 24x, she will instead be turned into the Deadlord Draco; as Draco is a Sniper (her class as Briggid), not a Swordmaster (her class as Eyvel), this was likely intended as a hint at her original identity. Appropriately enough, the Awakening incarnation of Draco actually wields Yewfelle, some thousands of years later.

  1. "The Blagi Tower was a place where large amounts of wealthy people traveled for pilgrimage. The faithful and wealthy Lord Ring of Jungby was also heading towards the Tower along with his children once again. However, the ship got caught in a storm and was in danger of sinking. The calm second daughter Adean and the scared first son Andorey stayed next to Lord Ring, but the energetic first daughter Briggid was playing inside the ship and her whereabouts were unknown. Having no choice, Lord Ring takes the two children and evacuate the ship. Afterwards, they made best efforts to find Briggid in all directions, but she could not be found......." - Designers' notes from Treasure, as translated by Serenes Forest
  2. "Briggid, who was crying alone in the storage room at the bottom of the ship, was then picked up by the leader of the Orgahil pirates and was grown as his daughter. Luckily, the leader of this pirate gang that saved Briggid was one of the most powerful and honorable pirates. And thus, she inherited her foster father's will and was eventually called a honorable pirate even better than her father." - Designers' notes from Treasure, as translated by Serenes Forest
  3. "Lord Leif, I have no memory of my youth. A little over ten years ago, I was rescued by the villagers after washing up on the coast of Iss. Who am I? Was I married? Did I have any children? I have no way of knowing." - Eyvel, Fire Emblem: Thracia 776
  4. "At one of the slave markets in Conote, I saw a little girl chained up and being sold. In my anger, I murdered all of the guards and slave traders... When I freed the girl and asked her name, she told me it was Mareeta. She said she was with her father, so I looked around with her, but I wasn't able to find him." - Eyvel, Fire Emblem: Thracia 776
  5. "Lady Eyvel, you were like a mother to us youths of the village as well. My little sister and I... It's like we were raised by you. I came this far to rescue you...and to thank you for all that you've done." - Halvan, Fire Emblem: Thracia 776
