Brittney Donegal is a character first introduced in Hunger. She is almost immortal and is gifted regeneration by the Gaiaphage in Lies.
Brittney is one of Edilio's soldiers who was believed to be killed during Caine's attack on the power plant in Hunger. Although she was thought to be dead, and therefore buried, she dug her way out. She has no heartbeat, which suggests that she is not truly alive. She needs no sleep, food, or water. Brittney attended Coates Academy, and was evidently in Jack's history class.
- Physical description
Brittney is described to be an overweight teenager with acne. She has light brown hair split in two ponytails, and braces that are constantly mentioned in Lies. The braces are also the first thing to appear during her regular transformation from Drake. The braces turn to liquid, leaving Drake/Brittney's teeth looking like metal.
Brittney has the power of regeneration, rendering her near impossible to kill.
The Gaiaphage used Brittney's immortality and Lana's healing powers to give Drake Merwin a second life, but to do so, it had to put Brittney and Drake together. Thus, the control and form of their shared body oscillates between Brittney and Drake. At the end of Lies, Brittney and Drake together, as one, are kept in a basement in one of Perdido Beach's houses, guarded by Orc and Howard.
At the end of Plague, she joins the Gaiaphage because she believes it is God, after it has convinced her of its plan to rule the FAYZ, and then the world.
Brittney and her "body-partner", Drake, continue to serve the Gaiaphage. She refers to the Gaiaphage as the "Lord," as she once referred to her Christian God. She says it is better to have a God which one can see and feel than an invisible God, like her previous one. She is a fanatic follower of this strange God.
It is assumed that when Drake dies after the FAYZ, Brittney died at the end of Light along with him.
- The image of her little brother Tanner, who died in the Thanksgiving battle, told her that she was brought back by God as an angel in order to destroy "the Demon" Drake. However, it is revealed that the image of Tanner is just an illusion created by the Gaiaphage.
- She had a crush on Mike Farmer before being killed and brought back to life. When Mike urged her to leave with him, she said "I'd rather burn in the fiery pits of Hell five times over than disappoint Edilio."
- Brittney is one of four avatars Astrid sees when she is sucked into Little Pete's game. Her Avatar is neither male nor female and has metal teeth and a whip.
