“Aw, come on, Ma! That's harsh! Sure, I'm not the prettiest guy around, but I'm no thug, and I AM your son! ...And it's good to see you.”
—Brady's reaction to Maribelle meeting him.
Brady (ブレディ Buredi, Bredy in the Japanese version) is a playable character from Fire Emblem: Awakening. He is the son of Maribelle. Originally voiced by Daisuke Egawa in the Japanese version, the English localisation sees him voiced by Travis Willingham.
Brady is Maribelle's son from the future, and can potentially be the brother of Lucina or Morgan, should Maribelle be wed to either Chrom or the Avatar respectively. His birthday falls on February 22. According to his in-game profile, Brady is said to, in spite of looking intimidating, more likely to burst into tears than bust out a weapon, alongside being the most likely to receive friendly fire.
In Brady's early years, Maribelle had trained in the fine arts characteristic of nobility, much to his immense dislike and chagrin. Still, despite his strong dislike for the matter, Maribelle insisted in Brady's training and he became skilled in noble pursuits such as proper etiquette, horseback riding, and violin playing. Brady has shown a great interest in playing the violin in particular but unfortunately it was a stray snapped violin string that gave Brady his scar over his eye. Unfortunately for Maribelle, despite her best attempts to fix Brady's rough and thuggish enunciation, Brady could not shake his habbit and eventually Maribelle gave up. Like all of the other children, Brady lost Maribelle and his father when they helped to fight off the Risen with the other parents. Maribelle's wedding ring was recovered and given to Brady, which he always wears. When Lucina decided to return to the past to stop the ruinous future, Brady accompanied her but the time stream separated Brady and the other children.
Brady is first introduced in Paralogue 7, where he is put in charge of healing the wounds of the villagers who are guarding the Mila Shrine Ruins from Xalbador's vigilante group. As Chrom's army rushes into the scene, Brady, overhearing his mother recognizes her voice and goes off to find her. If Maribelle speaks to him, Brady instantly recognizes her, but Maribelle makes an immediate assumption that Brady is a mannerless cur and choose to rush back into the battle rather than continue a conversation with him. Though a bit hurt, Brady is still happy to see his mother again. After the battle, Brady attempts to approach Maribelle once more, this time calling her "Ma". Maribelle does not believe that, from her perceived lack of etiquette from him, that Brady is her son. Brady decides to show her the ring he got from her in the future, but Maribelle immediately assumes that he stole that from her until he tells her to see that she still has her wedding ring. Though she finally accepts that Brady is her son, she laments that Brady seems to lack noble mannerisms and passions, however Brady assures her that, other than his speech, Maribelle in the future made sure to train her son to be a noble gentleman. Happy to know that her son is salvageable, Maribelle decides to take care of Brady and he is touched by her sentiment and decides to join Chrom's army.
After the war, Brady left his priesthood, becoming a violinist. In time, he is infamously recognised as the world's scariest violinist, where his performances are said to be legendary in their uncanny ability to move many an audience - and himself - to tears.
During the conversation that he shares with Laurent in this episode, Brady reveals that the thuggish image he upkeeps is deliberate, and can be attributed to specific reasons. For one, he claims that he hunches over in order to be able to converse with women and children at eye level. Also, he justifies the spiky appearance of his hair to an intent of marking him out as being distinctly identifiable from his comrades, allowing them to call on him to employ his healing capabilities with ease.
The Future PastEdit
In a temporal dimension where Grima has succeeded in corrupting the world with his pestilent influence, Brady is, alongside Owain, Yarne and Inigo, assigned the herculean task of recovering the Gemstones of Argent and Sable, both of which are pivotal in allowing Lucina to perform the rite of Awakening. The four individuals are first introduced in the second episode of this saga, where they are, upon succeeding in acquiring the Gemstones in question, pursued by hoards of Risen. Pausing to catch their breath before a bridge, the four of them despair over the dire state of their situation, before Brady is persuaded by Owain to run ahead with Yarne, while he remains behind to forestall the advance of the Risen hoard. The pair reluctantly accedes to the request, before turning back to be greeted with the horrifying sight of Inigo proclaiming a desire to fight alongside Owain and thereafter cutting down the bridge. Aghast at their attempt at a "noble sacrifice", Yarne begins to panic, urging Brady to assist them, to which Brady responds by affirming a need to press on. As Yarne accuses him of not caring about his companions' well-being, a wave of emotion threatens to engulf Brady, one which he quells by expressing an understanding over the motive of their actions - Where, by virtue of Brady and Yarne being the principal carriers of the Gemstones, Owain and Inigo thus desire for them to survive in order to fulfil their mission. Before turning to flee with Yarne, Brady expresses confidence over his friends' survival.
In this episode, if Maribelle were to be directed to speak to him, the conversation will initiate with Brady, upon learning that she hails from a completely disparate dimension, attempting to end the exchange by stalking off. Maribelle then reaches out to pull his ear in order to prevent him from doing so, to which he responds by sputtering that she could be an elaborate trap crafted by the enemy. Affronted both at this accusation and Brady's repeated attempt to avoid her, Maribelle commands him to stand up straight, before chastising him for doing so. At this point, Brady is suddenly overcome by a wave of immense heartache and anguish, whereupon he breaks down and reveals a deep-seated pining for his deceased mother, one that compels him to be incapable of even looking Maribelle straight in the eye. Evidently touched by this display of emotions, Maribelle reveals an empathetic understanding of his agony, attributing his attempt to avoid her as a mask for his true intent of not revealing a single shred of weakness to her. Indignant that his cover has been blown, Brady defensively asserts a desire to not look stupid before his mother, to which Maribelle gently comforts him by speaking in the contrary, where she expresses an admiration towards his tenacity in assisting his companions by keeping the Gemstones safe. She then adds a dash of humour to her words by declaring that she will kick anyone who dares to say otherwise.
If all the children survive at the end of the battle, Brady and Yarne will see Owain and Inigo arrive, whereupon Brady sheds tears of relief, to which Owain promises never to take any such risks again.
Half a year later, Brady begins to hone his skill with the violin, intending to form a double-act troupe with Inigo. He is said to occasionally cry in response to the music that he plays.
Contrary to his noble heritage, Brady is portrayed as an individual who initially takes on the appearance of a knavish thug, complete with crude, unpolished mannerisms and a face transfixed in a menacing leer. This is, however, nothing more than a facade that Brady employs in order to mask the true vulnerability of his character, where he is, in a rather antithetical vein, excessively sentimental and emotional, prone to frequent bouts of crying fits; alongside being markedly sensitive, empathetic and finely attuned to the feelings of others. This fact may be gleaned from his supports with his father, where he dismissively establishes an exterior of emotionless apathy towards the notion of being forgotten the moment the Brady of the current timeline is conceived. Upon being informed that he will neither be forgotten nor allowed to disappear from his father's life, this shell of stoic steeliness shatters, causing him to, as is his usual custom, cry as he retracts his words.
Brady's maintenance of such an exterior is one that he, through a conversation that he shares with Frederick in the second Future Past episode, reveals is done in revolt over his displeasure with his mother's dogged determination to impose her ideals of the perfect noble gentleman onto him. This thuggish exterior of his is one that is evidently done rather acutely and convincingly, as can be gleaned from his supports with the Avatar, whom he, in a manner reminiscent of a Yakuza or a Mafia henchman addressing his superiors, constantly refers to as "Boss".
Despite the acrimony that he harbours towards noble pursuits, Brady has been portrayed as being more than willing to undergo them in order to please his mother, whom he, though not referred to directly, loves more than any other entity in the world. Such a fact may be elucidated from his supports with Maribelle, where, in response to her immense displeasure with his crass speech patterns, Brady seeks out voluminous publications that pertain to the enhancement of the diction that is employed in one's speech. By their final support with each other, Brady reveals an astuteness in speaking in a refined, tactful and sophisticated manner, although he later reveals that his doing so is akin to him being suffocated and rendered incapable of breathing normally, whereupon he questions his mother's ability to tolerate speaking in such a polished manner.
- Note: These are his default base stats. To get the actual base stats, use the following formula: [(Maribelle's current stats - Maribelle's class base stats) + (father's current stats - father's class base stats) + Brady's absolute base stats] ÷ 3 + Brady's class base stats.

Brady starts out as a Priest, which works nicely considering his good Magic and Luck inheritence from his mother. Being level 10, he will already have Miracle and Healtouch; the former could potentially save his life in a pinch, while the latter helps him restore more HP with a Staff. However, As he levels up and reclasses, both skills should be swapped out for more useful ones as Miracle is highly situational while his high Magic growth means Healtouch will be unnecessary later.
Priest promotes to either Sage or War Monk, both of which give Brady some useful skills. Sage offers Rally Magic which can help in a support role and Tomefaire which makes him stronger when using Tomes. Brady makes an excellent Sage due to his good Magick and Luck growths. War Monk offers Rally Luck and Renewal; Rally Luck can also help Brady in a support role, although Rally Magic is typically more useful, while Renewal greatly imrpoves Brady's endurance. His negative Strength inheritence means he will struggle to do damage in this class unless he has a father which boosts Strength. However, he can get around this with Bolt Axes eventually.
Inheritence and Reclassing
- Maribelle: Brady's mother has access to 5 female exclusive classes: Troubadour, Valkyrie, Pegasus Pegasus Knight, Dark Flier and Falcon Knight. This means she can pass him a Skill he otherwise would not be able to learn on his own, and of these skills Galeforce is undoubtedly the best: it can help Brady's map clearing skills, and help him get to safety after netting a kill. Maribelle's Troubadour and Pegasus Knight classes come down to Brady as Priest and Cavalier. Brady should take the time to go through Cavalier, as it and its promotions offer useful skills for him. Discipline helps him build his weapon ranks faster; Great Knight offers Luna, a solid attacking skill and Dual Guard +, which helps him in a supporting role. Paladin offers Defender, another useful support skill and Aegis which can shave off indirect damage. Brady is best off learning the skills he needs from the Cavalier line and then reclassing back into a Magic using class. Reclassing into Mage is largely pointless, with the only useful new skill coming from that line being Lifetaker from Dark Knight to help him heal after killing an enemy. Overall, Brady is definetly not a character you should leave behind, by virtue of his excellent Skill set. No matter the father, he will always have attacking, defending and healing skills, and is all but guaranteed to be a key member of your team.
- Chrom: Chrom's main selling point as Brady's father is Rightful King. Rightful King is useful for Brady, boosting his chances of activating Miracle, Luna and Aegis He also gets good Skill and Luck and respectable Speed and Magic mods. Unfortunately, the only new class he gains is Archer, which he is not suited to due to low Strength growths. And while Brady can make decent use of Rightful King, he simply can't use it nearly as well as Chrom's other potential sons Inigo and Morgan. While Chrom is a decent father for Brady, overall there are better choices.
- The Avatar: Due to the Avatar's varied stats, it's impossible to truly guage how Brady will turn out. However, he will have phenominal versatility due to inheriting every male class, essentially making him a second Morgan. The Avatar also offers 2 new classes: Tactician and Grandmaster. Both classes offer some excellent Skills: Veteran makes grinding levels faster; Ignis is a solid attacking skill if you make Brady a mixed attacker; Rally Spectrum is very useful in a support role. Consult the sections below for an idea of how Brady will perform in the other classes he gains.
- Frederick: Frederick gives Brady a welcome boost to his Defence and also offers Knight, and the Wyvern Rider line. The Knight and Wyvern Rider classes themselves don't offer anything especially useful, however their promotions do. General offers Rally Defense, and Pavise which help Brady support and tank hits respectively. Wyvern Lord offers Swordbreaker, while Griffon Rider offers Deliverer and Lancebreaker. The breaker skills help Brady dodge more attacks, while Deliverer can help in a pair ups. This Brady is best used as a supporter, as he'll end up quite slow and with average Strength and Magic.
- Virion: Virion gives Brady the Archer and Wyvern Rider lines. With his natural Luna, Brady will be a superior Archer to his father although his low Strength means he will still be better off as a Magic attacker. While this Brady won't be suited to the Wyvern Rider tree, he can still make use of Deliverer, Lancebreaker and Swordbreaker. Like Chrom, Virion is a decent father for Brady but overall other characters give him much more useful tools.

- Brady - Daunting Priest
- Brady left the priesthood to become the world's scariest violinist. His rondos were so apocalyptic, and his requiems so full of melancholy that everyone in the room, performer included, burst into tears.
- Brady and the Avatar
- Many wrote of Avatar's legendary exploits, but accounts of her origins and character varied. Scholars, poets, and bards agreed on one thing alone—she loved her husband, Brady, above all else.
- Brady and Lucina
- Brady left the priesthood to become the world's scariest violinist. Every new rondo he composed passed first through the ears of his beloved wife and critic, Lucina.
- Brady and Kjelle
- Brady left the priesthood to become the world's scariest violinist. Never one to pass up an opportunity for self-improvement, Kjelle took up music too. Their tight duets were said to spring from a single muse.
- Brady and Cynthia
- Brady left the priesthood to become the world's scariest violinist. His original rondos caught the heart of Cynthia, who insisted he play them everywhere he went as a sort of theme song.
- Brady and Severa
- Brady left the priesthood to become the world's scariest violinist. Severa would roll her eyes and gripe about the noise, but the dew in her eyes after a touching melody was perhaps the more honest critique.
- Brady and Morgan
- Brady left the priesthood to become the world's scariest violinist. While Morgan's memory never returned, she didn't really seem to miss it, and the two lived out their days most happily.
- Brady and Noire
- Brady left the priesthood to become the world's scariest violinist. Noire tried to talk him out of it for fear his divine talents as musician and composer would curse them both to an early grave.
- Brady and Nah
- Brady left the priesthood to become the world's scariest violinist. Nah, who considered herself quite the singer, often accompanied him; the sheer volume of her strains was said to flatten audiences.
Brady is an Irish and/or Gaelic name meaning "Spirited one from the long island", possibly referencing his starting class as a Priest or his exaggerated reactions in conversation. The name is also an English name meaning "broad one". Brady is also a word that can mean slow or dull, possibly reflecting his poor athletic prowess.
- Brady's birthday is the same day that Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn was first released in Japan.
- Brady's official artwork, as well as his in-game portrait, depicts him wielding a Physic Staff.
- Brady shares his English voice actor, Travis Willingham, with Lon'qu.
- Since the character's portrait is inverted in status screen, it looks like Brady's scar is in his right eye.
- Brady has unique battle models for each of his Priest related classes. He wears black and purple clothes as a Priest, War Monk, and Sage instead of the default colors.
