— Brunnya, to Zephiel
Brunnya (Japanese: ブルーニャ Brunnya) was one of the Wyvern Generals of Bern at the time of the Disturbance of Bern. Unwavering in her loyalty and devotion to King Zephiel, she led the invasion of Sacae at the Great Movement's onslaught. At the war's climax, she was tasked by Zephiel with the protection of Idunn, to ensure the entire war did not go to waste.
Early in the war after conquering Sacae, working with Narcian, Brunnya led an assault on Castle Araphen, where the leaders of the Lycian League were conferring on the matter of going to war with Bern. They decimated the League's army and defeated and severely wounded Lord Hector of Ostia, the League's leader. Shortly after, Zephiel himself arrived and requested that Brunnya bring Hector before him. After finishing with Hector, Brunnya informed Zephiel that she was to return to Sacae, but first voiced the concerns of the army by inquiring about Zephiel's work with a sinister figure like Idunn; Zephiel deflected her question by informing her that one of her level of faith in and devotion to him should not question his wisdom and should simply follow orders, to which she complied.
Later, at Taras, Brunnya received news of the fall of Bern-controlled Aquleia and the death of Narcian. Roartz and Arcardo had fled to the Bern-occupied territory, and attempted to seek refuge with Bern; Brunnya reassured the two that as allies of Bern they would not be abandoned, tasked them with the defence of Bulgar and Taras respectively, and reminded them that the two had it incredibly easy compared to the trials conquered by Roy. Once she had left, she mentioned to one of her soldiers that she was not at all impressed with their cowardice and betrayal of their country.
As the Etrurian army headed by Roy approached Bern Keep, Zephiel entrusted Idunn to Brunnya in order to ensure that the purpose of the war could still be carried out. Brunnya travelled to the Dragon Sanctuary and in turn entrusted Idunn to Jahn, while she and the remnants of the Bern army prepared to defend the Sanctuary from the inevitable pursuit by Roy's forces, well aware that the odds were against them and that the fight would be futile. When Roy did come, Brunnya informed her forces that because of the futility, any of them could leave now with no consequences; almost no-one left, and the army expressed its solidarity with Brunnya and Bern. In spite of her determination, she died for her homeland in the battle, much as she expected.
Brunja is the boss of Chapter 23, and thus is only fought in the game's good ending. She is also available as a bonus playable character in the Trial Map mode, unlocked by clearing the game four times.
