Bryan Farrell was born into the Baronian Aristocracy. Like many of his ancestors, he eventually joined the Dragon Knight Corps (also known as "Dragoons") of Baron at the age of 15. This is where he met (and befriended) the prodigy Erik Highwind, the young engineer Cid Pollendina, as well as Odin, the Prince of Baron.

Bryan served as a mentor and brother figure to Erik through all their years of friendship, often acting as the voice of reason for the younger Dragoon and doing his best to keep him out of trouble. He later married his childhood sweetheart, the White Mage Calla, with whom he had one daughter, Rosa.

He also functionned as the eyes and ears of Odin within the Royal Court despite the tense political situation of the time. While his reports managed to save the lives of some of the most loyal supporters of the newly-crowned King, all his efforts could not prevent all the casualties. Bryan was particularly devastated by the loss of his best friend's wife, Meredith, and was crushed when Erik fell into a downward spiral filled with guilt and self-destruction that eventually lead him to his premature death.

He spent the rest of his life working to keep the Dragon Corps as strong as possible despite the deserting and passing of one of their finest Captains and the rise of the Red Wings Corps, and proudly encouraged his daughter when she developed in interest into archery on top of her studies to become a White Mage like her mother.


Bryan was calm and level-headed, a stark contrast to his best friend Erik's personality. He would always act and speak in a very formal way due to his upbringing, much to the amusement of his fellow Dragon Knights who thought he was too straight and somewhat boring. Nonetheless, many people considered him to be one of the finest Knights of Baron, and his manners were reputed to be irreproachable.
