Brimstone is an Agent in VALORANT.

Profile

Biography

Joining from the USA, Brimstone's orbital arsenal ensures his squad always has the advantage. His ability to deliver utility precisely and from a distance make him an unmatched boots-on-the-ground commander.

Hailing from the United States, Liam Byrne started his adult life as a firefighter for the BFD and then a military soldier for a Special Forces squad known as the Ragged Ravens. He served in both professions alongside a close friend who he had known since childhood. He also became affiliated with Kingdom Corporation, eventually becoming a veteran of their subsidiary K/SEC.

After the events of First Light, the secretive VALORANT Protocol was founded, with Byrne being the first agent to join them and eventually becoming its leader and commander, "Brimstone".

LIAM BYRNE: Early Life

  • Byrne has several links to Baltimore, Maryland.
  • Byrne serves as a firefighter for the BFD, Engine 8.[1]
  • Byrne serves as a soldier for Special Forces in a squad called the Ragged Ravens.[1]
  • Byrne knew people called Tariq Porter and Sumaira.[1]
    • Byrne had to watch Tariq die, despite his best efforts to save him.[1]
  • Byrne works for K/SEC[2]

BRIMSTONE: VALORANT agent

  • Recruited as its first agent and commander.
    • Brimstone worked with Viper to set up the organization.[3]

The Omega Project

  • Brimstone encounters Vincent Fabron on a mission with Viper, leading to Fabron’s recruitment into VALORANT.[4]
  • Brimstone is present during the Max Bot training exercise at VALORANT HQ.[5]
    • Brimstone arrives towards the end of the exercise to summon the agents for their next mission.

The Blackmailer

  • Brimstone is involved with the interrogation of the blackmailer.[6]
    • Brimstone is reported to be joining Cypher in multiple meetings with the blackmailer that are being kept need-to-know.
  • After facing questions from agents who hadn’t been given the clearance to know about the blackmailer’s capture, Brimstone sends an email to all agents informing them about what had happened.[7]
  • After completing their interrogations, Brimstone concludes that the blackmailer could actually be an ally and agent of VALORANT now that it had been understood that the Protocol had nothing to do with who she was meant to be chasing after. With the agreement of other senior agents, they recruit her into VP as its twentieth agent, "Fade".[8]

Continuing the Omega Project

  • Brimstone is reported to be having arguments with Breach.[9]
    • He is soon contacted by Raze about this, who vouches for Breach and asks Brimstone to go easy on him.

Personality

   "Sage, remember that you can't save everyone. We save who we can, that's enough"
— Brimstone to Sage

The oldest of the group, Brimstone is a commander with a long history of wearing a uniform, but as if teaching from age and experience wasn't enough to prove his place in leading an organization composed of unique individuals who are each an elite in their own right, then perhaps continuing to work with boots on the ground sealed the deal.

As commander of VALORANT and its most senior member, Brimstone always encourages his teammates whenever he can, and does not seem to obligate his subordinates to speak in a formal or professional manner that is usually seen in the military; this is notable as he refers to the younger agents as "kids." Additionally, Brimstone describes himself to be stubborn, and is quite adamant in not letting age get him into retirement anytime soon.

Appearance

Brimstone is a tall and large man who is commonly seen wearing a blue shirt with a chest plate over it. He wears an orange beret which notably has a gold-colored insignia that depicts two inverted chevrons, possibly referring to his military rank. Brimstone sports a gray mustache and a heavily grown beard. He wears gloves on both hands, and an arm bracer on his left wrist.

He is also known to have a tattoo on his right upper arm.[10]
