Peculiar

Bronwyn Bruntley is one of Miss Peregrine's peculiar children, a female syndrigast with the peculiarity of having super strength. She is very caring and picks the vegetables for dinner.

Biography

Early Life

Bronwyn Bruntley, berserker, taster of blood, didn't know her own strength until the night she snapped her rotten stepfather's neck.

Doctor Golan, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Not much is known of Bronwyn and her brother Victor, besides that, they used to live in Swansea, a city in Wales. Before the home, they lived with an abusive step-father whom Bronwyn snapped the neck of when she was 10.

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children

Bronwyn is first seen in the circus the peculiar children perform in, lifting a giant boulder the size of a refrigerator overhead.

Hollow City

As the sequel opens, the children are rowing their boats away from Cairnholm island as their search for Miss Wren's loop begins. The children take turns rowing in shifts since everyone is tired from the long trip. Bronwyn shares the luggage and is able to row tirelessly for hours she rows 4 to 6 people.

Description

Physical

Bronwyn is said to be a "mannish-looking" girl who hates dresses and almost always has bare feet.

In the film, she is portrayed by Pixie Davies.


Personality

She may not be the sharpest tool in the woodshed, but she's got a massive heart and she'd go to the grave for her mates.

Despite not being the brightest, Bronwyn cares deeply for all of her friends. She is very loyal and shows hesitation in betraying Miss Peregrine when the children want to sneak out to find the wight. She ends up going to protect her friends though. Many times throughout the novel she shows her courage and love for her friends by attacking the wight and hollowgast on multiple occasions, usually with a sudden surge of energy. She has shown at least basic medical knowledge by making a tourniquet for Millard.

The most maternal of the peculiars, Bronwyn was more like a mother to the young ones than even Miss Peregrine. It was Bronwyn who tucked them into bed at night, Bronwyn who read them stories and kissed their foreheads. Her strong arms seemed made to gather them in warm embraces, her broad shoulders to carry them.

Jacob's narration, Hollow City


Bronwyn also has a very strong maternal instinct for the other children, particularly Olive and Claire who are the youngest. She is said to be the one to read the children stories at night and tuck them into bed rather than Miss Peregrine. In Hollow City, she willingly gives up her bulletproof sweater (To the disapproval of Enoch ) to Esme, though her sister Sam had been very hostile to them. When the peculiars considered if they should fight or hide when they got Miss Peregrine back, Bronwyn declares (graphic novel at least) that if some of the peculiars stayed to fight, then she would protect the ones that didn't.

Peculiarity

Bronwyn is a strong-arm, which means she can lift heavy objects normally incapable of a human. It is unstated how much she can actually lift, but she has easily lifted a large boulder the size of a refrigerator over her head and carried it under her arm effortlessly. She also pulled a cargo hold's door off a sunken ship and carried it as a shield with Millard on her back. Bronwyn is also capable of holding light objects with ease without breaking them. It is stated that she is "as strong as 10 men".

Golan revealed that Bronwyn was unaware of how strong she was until she snapped her step-father's neck, which she seemingly had the motive to do. She broke his neck as he was horrible to her and Victor.

Relationships

Victor Bruntley

Victor is Bronwyn's brother. Though he was killed by a hollowgast, Enoch has used his peculiarity to bring him back to life for brief amounts of time. While Jacob was introduced to Victor, Bronwyn begged Enoch to bring him back for a short period of time.

Emma Bloom

We're thick as thieves, Bronwyn and me.

Emma Bloom, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Emma and Bronwyn are good friend's ,Emma is shown to have a neutral, but a mostly positive relationship with Bronwyn. Emma is definitely the closest to the strong girl.
