|“||I'll go alone if I must. While I live, Erdas has a protector.||”|
–Briggan, Tales of the Great Beasts
Briggan is one of the four animals who gave their lives to preserve Erdas in the first Devourer war. Having reformed, and although not even yet full grown, he is described as being the biggest wolf ever seen, with gray-white fur and cobalt-blue eyes, a trait only he possess. He was the greatest Seer (one able to see the future or sense things ahead) before he fell in battle. While it will take time, Briggan will eventually be able to speak audibly and see things ahead again.He is also fast, agile, and ferocious. He is on the flag of Eura. While headstrong, he and Conor are still quickly becoming great friends and earning respect from each other. He is also the first introduced out of the four fallen.
Briggan is a natural leader and has a very honorable personality, though he is not a very good talker. He is very driven by duty. Wild wolves seem to respect his presence and will quickly submit to him, as seen in Fire and Ice. As a spirit animal, Briggan can be playful sometimes with Conor, and acts much like a domestic dog.

This book does not have a lot about Briggan in it. Briggan is shown at the beginning to seem embarrassed about Conor giving a way the Iron Boar of Rumfuss, leaving when Conor reaches to pet him and hiding. He was very vicious towards the black tiger that attacked Uraza and, along with her, did not enjoy the water. He had not given Conor a dream about the next Great Beast, Suka the Polar Bear, as Dinesh had told them about her.
When Tellun asked the four fallen to risk their lives again, Briggan is the first to submit. When they are fight Kovo in the last battle, Briggan bites his wrist while Conor jumps on his back.
