Branwen Blaidd, of Tralee Descent is a Spiorad Ainmhithe, one of the very few born in the 2000s. Since 2019, she is a student of literature at the University of Fortham and, totally unrelated, a Bicíní Industries Model.
She is the younger twin sister of Elin Blaidd, of Tralee Descent and cousin to Nia Sneachtúil, of Cefnffordd Descent. Their parents are Llwyd Blaidd, of Tralee Descent and Meave Blaidd, of Tralee Descent.
Branwen started to write in 2013/2014, starting with science fiction in 2017. Her interest in that genre awoke during a holiday in the Oileánra-Archipelago, where she and Elin got to see one of SDY's tests of the combination of a Cosmos-class Sea Launch Commander and Odyssey-class Sea Launch Platform from afar.

During the 2019 Cuan Spring Festival, she met by coincidence her big idol, Shizuka Gozen, a fellow writer from AHSCA.
She graduated Summer 2019 and, after a short vacation, applied to study Literature at the University of Fortham. On the 27th of August, she got a letter of approval, starting her studies in March 2020.

She tries to be cool and mature like her older sister, but she does not (yet) manage to do that. She also has an inner poet, which forces its way out at times. She loves to swim, but does not do so competitively.
Branwen admires Shizuka Gozen, a writer from AHSCA, greatly.
- "Good characters drive not only the story, but they make the characters relateable. If the reader can't relate to the story, the story is not going to be effective."
- - Branwen Blaidd, 2019.
Branwen mostly writes Science Fiction, using the genre to tell tales of the human condition and of the condition of the Spiorad. Especially that difference, between the mortal humans and immortal Spiorad fascinates her as a concept, which finds itself in the focus, especially of 2020's Gwarcheidwad: Experience of Ages.
