Brianne's marriage to a fellow Lord caused many troubles. The rift that was opened between the two just before Carril's death nearly caused the split of the Lords into two factions. After her husband's assassination by a black dragon, Brianne played the role of a respectable Waterdhavian widow for a long time, courted by many men wanting to marry for her wealth. She used this position to spy upon them on the orders of the Lords. In 1374 DR, she became engaged to the socialite wizard Randulaith of Mirabar.
Brianne had a tower within the city proper but also lived in Carril's old estate outside of the city.
