Brigid is goddess of the hearth in Irish mythology. Her husband Bres is a Fomorian and she is the daughter of Dagda. She is the goddess of all things perceived to be of relatively high dimensions such as high-rising flames, highlands, hill-forts and upland areas, as well as wisdom, excellence, perfection, high intelligence, poetic eloquence, craftsmanship (especially blacksmithing), healing ability, druidic knowledge and skill in warfare. In the living traditions, whether seen as goddess or saint, she is largely associated with the home and hearth. Saint Brigid is theorized to be based on her, as she is associated with sacred flames, specifically one maintained by 19 nuns in Kildare, Ireland. Men were not allowed to visit this sacred flame.
Brigid appears in the Challenge Quest, The Cauldron. She is found in Daiba at the International Exhibition Center, where she waits for Flynn to bring Dagda's Cauldron. Brigid introduces herself when he arrives with it and mentions she is a member of the Tuatha De Danann. She asks what became of the others, but does not let her emotions get the best of her when she learns all save Fortuna were killed by angels.
She places the Cauldron upon an altar and will now protect it until the resurrection of the Tuatha De Danann's mother, Danu, as she will be able to revive all of the slain using the Cauldron. Her final words are to thank him before Flynn leaves.
"The goddess of fire in Irish lore. She also presides over craftsmanship, intelligence, poetry, and healing. She is depicted carrying a magic cup symbolizing a brazier. She had such authority that her name itself was synonymous with "goddess." When Christianity spread to Ireland, she was so revered by the masses that the church canonized her as a Christian saint."
