Role in the film

She is an elf who works for the Claus family in The North Pole. She originally worked as a Wrapping Divison Grade 3 elf. One Christmas after Malcolm Claus (the current Santa) returned from delivering presents, Bryony found a present that had not been delivered and discovered it to be a bike for an English girl named Gwen.

When Malcolm's son and heir Steve claimed that they can send the present to Gwen in a few days, Bryony along with Steve's younger brother Arthur and Grandsanta travel to England to deliver the bike in Grandsanta's old sleigh Evie which is pulled by the great-great grandchildren of the original eight reindeer.

Though they face challenges along the way, the trio arrive in England and Arthur is able to leave the bike in Gwen's house and leave just as she wakes up. After Arthur is made the new Santa, Bryony is made Vice-President of Packing, Pacific Division.
