— Bria

Bria is a powerful Ascalonian ghost and necromancer who lives in the Hellion Forest within Iron Marches. She is responsible for the forest's supernatural occurrences and seeks to steal the souls of charr cubs who like to play around her home. Bria is the only known victim of The Foefire that's been able to retain her free will, access all the power that she possessed in life, and take on the appearance of a living human.

Trivia[edit]

  • Bria is one of few foes to still have Unshakable in addition to the Defiance bar mechanic introduced in Heart of Thorns.
    • When Heart of Thorns was released, she did not have a defiance bar, but still retained Unshakable. She was given a defiance bar in an unknown subsequent update months later.
