Brigid is an adult human woman of short stature—about the same height as Star Butterfly—with brown skin, dark brown hair worn in dreadlocks, and green eyes. She wears a raggedy blue and green coat, two necklaces, a green hairband, and large red rings in her earlobes.
In "Star vs. Echo Creek", Brigid finds Star sleeping on the riverbed after accidentally crushing a police car leads to her running away from home. The kind woman invites Star to her home on the river to give her warm food and a bed. As Brigid gives Star a plate of pancakes, she quickly figures out that Star ran away because of something she did.
As the two talk, Brigid takes a keen interest in Star's hair. She explains to Star that she steals discarded hair from dumpsters, behind hair salons, and dog kennels, and she weaves it into various furnishings around her home, such as tapestries and nests for injured animals.
Brigid reveals that she knew Star was in trouble because she saw her picture on a "Missing Persons" flyer. She tries to convince Star to go back home to her loved ones, but Star, worried about going to prison for crushing a police car, refuses and runs away again. Brigid is last seen calling the police using a tin can phone and notifying them about Star's whereabouts.
