When Broccach rose to Targadh-Arm of Rhudaur, Brian took over his position as Targadh of the Maicc-Temair Hillmen. Brian was actually Broccach’s elder cousin and fanatically loyal. He was quite suspicious of Wilda (Korekalwen), and indeed suspicious of anyone not a Hillman.
Original form in MERP:Briam
The Name Briam seems not to be derived from Welsh or Gaelic like most other Dunnish or Dunlending Names (or it may be the female name "Briam"). It should perhaps be taken as an "untranslated" form.
