Brighid is Blade in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. She is a fire Blade considered as the jewel of the Empire of Mor Ardain, as such she was the Blade of emperor Hugo Ardanach during the Aegis War and fought alongside Addam Origo the legendary hero of the Kingdom of Torna until Hugo sacrificed himself to save Addam, which caused her to return to his Core Crystal. She was then passed down the imperial family until she became the Blade of Mòrag Ladair, the Special inquisitor of the empire as well as a member of the Imperial family who was supposed to become empress until the birth of her cousin, Niall Ardanach. Unlike most Blades, she has access to the knowledge of most of her past lives thanks to her diary and official Ardainian records.
