Briarwood was born in what today is Fort Crawlins, Colorado.
Briarwood is a uniform maple-brown color with a blonde mane and tail. She has pouty lips, sleepy eyes, and a very slight bosom. Her normal apparel consists of a bridle, reins and a belt, sometimes with a small sack for carrying money or a snack.
Briarwood is extremely intelligent, and often frustrated with her partner's childish naiveté. What she lacks, however, is creativity. Because she is so left-brained and Fluren so right-brained, they make the perfect complementary pair.
It has been hinted that Briarwood may secretly have a crush on Fluren. As of yet, this has not been substantiated.
Briarwood is distantly related to Tiffany Runninghorse.
