Hair Color and Style: Her shoulder-length hair is pink and curly. She usually wears her hair up, either in a ponytail, bun or pigtails.
Distinguishing Features: Bridget has a mole near the outer corner of her right eye.
Personality: Bridget is outgoing and optimistic. It's hard to get her down; in fact, sometimes her perkiness annoys others. She is restless and easily excitable. Though she is still naive, it's not easy to take advantage of her naivete because Bridget is often exhausting to socialize with. She's not modest or shy. She doesn't know what “embarrassing” means.
Despite her free spirit, she does well with authority. Though her drill sergeants told her repeatedly to “wipe that smile off [her] face,” she never questioned orders. As long as she's not yapping like a pomeranian, Bridget gets along well with her squad members. She's very careful in combat, taking cues from her teammates and assessing her enemies closely. She treats the battlefield like a stage and combat like a performance. It may be odd, but this is how she utilizes the skills she acquired through dancing and performance.

Bridget was born to a Freemen family. Her father is a surgeon and her mother is a former ballerina. Bridget has one sibling, a younger brother who is still in secondary school.
Bridget followed in her mother's footsteps and took dancing lessons starting at age three. Her parents expected Bridget to become a professional ballerina, but much to their shock and dismay, Bridget decided to enlist in the Marines after she finished high school. When asked why, Bridget replied, “If I don't join now, I can't join later!” No one was sure what she meant by this. In a rare moment of somber thought, Bridget was scared her life was too comfortable, thus making her vulnerable and dependent on others. She hasn't told anyone this and continues to act as though joining the Marines was as reasonable an option for her as joining the Funky City Metro Ballet.
Also much to everyone's shock, she passed Boot Camp with flying colors.

Bridget is in excellent physical shape and has considerable endurance. Bridget is also able to pilot land-based power armors, but must rely on the suit’s A.I. to do anything advanced.
