BiographyEdit

"I know these things can stick with you. If you ever need someone to talk to... Or more booze. Whatever helps."

- Ida Briggs to Caleb(src)

Briggs became friends with Frank and his group early in their arrival to Spearpoint Base, and shortly after met Caleb one lunch.[1] After the murder of a worker in the factory named Russell, Caleb was harassed by his shift worker named Jace, and interrogated for potentially being a spy. Briggs broke up the fight, and offered Caleb some of her alcohol, telling him that if he ever had an issue, he could come to her.

Later, when on the way to a card game, Briggs ran into Caleb, and the two went to play cards together. Over the next few days, the two became closer, with Briggs having some attraction to Caleb. However, soon after Jace did not show up on his shift, and Briggs was ordered to investigate. At lunch with her friends, though she could not tell them all the details, she thought Jace was not a spy. Caleb got up and left, and Briggs followed, asking if he was alright. Caleb told her she thought this base would be safe, and Briggs assured him that the base held something valuable for the betterment of the terrans of the Koprulu sector.

Briggs and a security officer discuss the issue of the protoss

While the base was in chaos, Briggs continued her investigation, finding Caleb wandering the student farms outside of a secret lab. She kissed Caleb, and told him to not freak out, and that the Umojan Protectorate took care of its own. Later at dinner, Caleb dropped a piece of paper saying "killer is protoss outside of base." A factory worker gave this to Briggs, who reported it to the security office. The security office then sent the shadowguards out to hunt the protoss, but they were all slaughtered.[3]

As the base fell into chaos when the protoss killer, a renegade Nerazim, entered the secret lab, Briggs ran to its defense, but found Caleb running out from it. He told her she had to get away, but she insisted it was her job to defend the base, and that he needed to get to a shelter. Caleb informed her the prisoner was a protoss, and that she needed to protect Frank's orphaned daughter Dahlia, as he had been killed earlier by the Nerazim, and leave the planet. When Caleb addressed the protoss as "she," Briggs realized Caleb had been working with her, and pointed a gun at him, asking him how he could side with the enemy against his own people. Caleb said he tried, but that resulted in the death of his friend Kyra. He said that she should kill him then take care of Dahlia, but she put the gun down, telling him to leave.
