Your perspective is warped. You only see the bad and come at it. The problem is, right now, I think the world might need someone like you more than it needs someone like me.
~ Brigid O'Reilly to Mayhem

Detective Brigid O'Reilly is a main character in the Freeform television series Cloak & Dagger. She is an ally of Tandy Bowen and Tyrone Johnson and a detective of the New Orleans Police Department (formerly the NYPD. Her rage and anger were embodied in the form of her doppelganger, Mayhem after being shot by Connors and exposed to the Darkforce and Lightforce that gave Tandy and Tyrone their own powers.

She is portrayed by Emma Lahana, who also played Kira Ford in Power Rangers: Dino Thunder.

Cloak and Dagger

Personality

O'Reilly is a good-natured woman and a renowned detective. She is willing to fight for other innocent people, and this does not stop her from crossing boundaries. Cloak considers her one of the few good and honest people of the New Orleans Police Department, which can be seen when O'Reilly takes a closer investigation at the man who attempted to rape Tandy and tried passing off his injuries as a mugging.

Additionally, she would not let anyone sacrifice themselves for her. This happened when O'Reilly refused to let Cloak help her on her own plans because he was just a civilian and a teenager. Though she accepted some of Cloak's help after learning he had powers, she would grow annoyed when he stole from drug gangs.

After she was split into two different people, the good side of O'Reilly retains her previous personality. However, her darker half, Mayhem, has all the worst aspects of O'Reilly, even coming to hate her good counterpart. However, both Mayhem and O'Reilly managed to put aside their differences and were able to merge when they were both in agreement.

Abilities

  • Expert Marksmanship: O'Reilly is a professional when it comes to a variety of firearms. She managed to take down Duane Porter before he could harm her and later effortlessly shot Terrors to aid Cloak and Dagger against them.

Expert Investigator: O'Reilly was able to deduce several aspects of crime. She was able to tell that Rick Cotton was the man who tried to rape Tandy Bowen despite trying to act like he had been a victim of a mugging. She was able to investigate James Connors' possible connections with drug dealers in New Orleans. This caused Connors to fear O'Reilly's detective skills enough to try to have her killed by Duane Porter
