Brian[n 1] is a knight and First Army's battalion commander. He was a patrol captain of Border Town and along with the other captain Greyhound they were the only native patrol members.  

Personality Edit

Brian is a dutiful man, he wished to become a knight one day, as he believed they are courageous and noble, protectors of the weak and fighters against injustice. Thus, he felt disgust when Fierce Scar offered a knight title for grain burning.

He was proud to become a patrol captain, believing other patrolmen admitted his merits, only to discover later that others simply avoided captain's duty to ignite beacon during the Months of Demons.[1]

Background Edit

Brian was born in a hunter family. Due to his own abilities, he became a patrol captain. Every winter he and Greyhound had stayed in the Beacon Tower of the North Slope Mine area, and whenever they saw a great number of demonic beasts crossing over, they had lighted the beacon to warn the townsfolk of their coming[2].

To his surprise abd disappointment, he didn't pass chief knight's check and wondered how prince intended to fight beasts with commoners.

Brian witnessed Greyhound's death by hands of patrol plotters led by Fierce Scar. The latter conspired all patrol team, promising knight title and other rewards for burning food reserves. Under the threat of death Brian led plotters to the tunnel connecting with castle's garden. When they reached basement, he escaped from the group and fought them with Nightingale's help. When he woke up, healed by Nana, he was praised by Roland and promised to become a knight.[1]

During Months of Demons he was Anna's bodyguard following her wherever she went.[3]
