|Sleeping my life away and losing all my friends? Why should I be forced to live that life if it's not the one that I want?|
|—Briar Beauty in "Way Too Wonderland"|
Briar Beauty is a 2013-introduced and all-around character. She is part of Sleeping Beauty as the next Sleeping Beauty, and she is a student at Ever After High. In the destiny conflict, she is on the Royal side out of a general belief that destiny is the way to go, though she is not at all looking forward to the century-long sleep that awaits her in her story.
Once feeling contempt for having to sleep for a hundred years, Briar chose to live life to the fullest and find some way to have fun in every second. Despite her tendency to fall asleep at any given moment, Briar embodies the spontaneous party girl, going so far as to even leap out of open windows for the rush. She is also known for throwing parties and being a social butterfly. She is acquaintances with everyone and friends with many, as well as in charge of the organization of many parties at school. But being the girl everyone has to know is only part of how Briar makes her days matter; the other part is filled with whatever she hasn't done before, the more adrenaline-inducing the better.
Despite all this though, Briar is far from vapid. She is a strong-willed girl who takes an active role in her own life. She's also a true friend to those close to her, part of her Royal devotion being thanks to her friendship with Apple, despite the anxiety surrounding Briar's own destiny and the luxury in Apple's. But clearly, Briar is not without her personal reservations regarding her destiny. She's proven herself to be even more rebellious in spirit than that of Raven Queen on occasion, having thrown away the true Storybook of Legends in a last-ditch effort to keep herself from being obligated to follow her destiny.
As the next Sleeping Beauty, Briar's big fashion motif are roses and thorns. She utilizes their imagery as print, jewelry, and even hairstyle. Her colors of choice are pink and black, accentuated with silver accessories. Briar has thick and wavy brown hair with pink streaks running through it, light brown skin, and light mauve eyes.
Briar's interests are full of thrill and adrenaline. She tries her best to find activities she's never done before to replace a century of sleep. So, she lives up her youth by doing things no mundane person would ever do. Still, Briar enjoys shopping with her friends and listening to music in her spare time. As the Social Throne of the Royal Student Council and as part of the Party Planning Committee, Briar is normally the go-to girl when somebody wants a party to be memorable.

Briar's parents are Sleeping Beauty and her prince-now-king. Briar has eight younger brothers with all the names of adjectives, one of a pair of three being triplets. It is revealed that the Beauty of Beauty and the Beast is Briar's aunt by means of being her mother's sister. As such, Rosabella is Briar's cousin.
She is best friends with Apple White, and the two have a close bond broken only by the climax of the Royal/Rebel conflict. Despite this, though, Apple chose Briar as her other friends over her devotion to destiny in the end. She also lists Blondie Lockes as a best friend in her bio, and is close to her roommate Ashlynn Ella. Her cousin, Rosabella Beauty, also considers her a close friend. She is seen with Hopper Croakington II from time to time. Briar is also friends with Raven and Maddie.
Aware of her story, Briar knows that her one true love will not show up for a hundred years, so dating is a non-issue for her at the moment. Hopper Croakington II has let her know he likes her, but she is repelled by his awkward come-ons. Although Hopper can woo Briar with his poetic flirts, he can only do so in the frog form that disgusts Briar.
