Brackenbury is the home to the Doemenel family, i.e. one of the main factions in Defiance Bay. Consider whether you want to complete quests for this faction, especially that this may make you unable to complete quests for the other factions. Therefore, it is best to meet the representatives of all the main factions first and make your decision after you receive several initial quests from them.
