Born in Beqanna prior to year 185 as a child, abandoned by her father due to the death of her mother in childbirth. A stallion named Expelliarmus, the King of the Forsaken Valley, found her and offered to bring her home and for a time she lived among the Valley and it's many residents. Eventually, however, a dark magic seemed to draw her away and lured her into the vast shadows of the region where she found a cavern. The image of her father appeared and for a time Briella grew curious- trying to retreat but was inevitably pulled into the darkness. The cavern closed behind her and she began hearing the maddening silence and emptiness, time itself also seemed to stop.
Frozen due to the timeless nature of the Void, she remained a child locked in an eternal state of loneliness and madness. Wandering constantly between wild rose brush and meadows, and whatever else the mysterious Void chose to manipulate itself as: she spent all the time looking for others but only found shadows and ghosts that vanished as she reached them.
This sentient landscape, strange and incomprehensible, finally rattled itself and tore open the branches of nettles and thorny vine for her and without much coaxing she went gladly through them. Thrust into Beqanna once again, during the Year 197, she found no aging and instead she felt hunger for the first time, and thirst. Desperate to satisfy these primal needs she went to the River and found Dovev, the strange stallion whom seemed to show more care for her than others. After a short passing of time he offered to care for her; but was forced to take her to Nerine where his lover Heartfire lived.
Left with the mare she found herself enchanted by the sea and the sand, and by all the wild things of Nerine. There in childlike bliss she heard the voice in her head that sent a picture: commanded her to kill. Frustrated and confused she found herself torn between the idea of investigating the origins of the voice and staying where she'd been told; but relenting for the sake of her new life, she opted to avoid the conflict.
Yet with Rhonen's death in the year 199, Briella and many others became ridden and sick with a contagious and virulent illness that Carnage had unleashed utilizing a dying Harmonia's Magic, Ajatar's Pestilence, Pangea's Heart, and Rhonen's Seal. Heartfire, too, became ill and brought Briella to the newly risen Icicle Isle as away to help stem to the tide of sickness. In the Isle Briella found others who sought to chase the Nerinians away and in the chaos of Heartfire utilizing a disintegrating blast: Briella escaped.
Desperate to save her growing family she sought out the Fairies and was given a task to find the heart-shaped lake. Sick, weak, and constantly facing the chances of death she made her way from the mountain to the heart-shaped lake and back. In order to help the Fairies granted her the gift of [ICE HEALING] until the plague was cured, and it would only linger if she continued to help two more times; but a misadventure in the mountain saw this removed. Regardless of the stipulation she continued to help and returned to the lake again at the behest of the Fairies. With more people coming and the situation growing dire, Briella was lost in a blizzard and Ether teleported the pair from the storm to the Island Resort.
Reunited with her adoptive family the time spent was short as Vulgaris stole Dovev away from Ischia and to Loess. Rather than stay absent her paternal attachment Briella departed for Loess as well.
After participating in multiple quests to save Beqanna, Briella vanished into the void again: resurfacing after it had been healed and strangely... unaffected by the void this time. Through a brief meeting with Vulgaris, she inevitably realized that she would have to seek the Fairies to answer her quests and began searching for answers. Though at present? She seems quite taken with a Dragon.
