Braden was the oldest Lavery sibling, and slunk into town in 1998. It was many months before it was revealed that he and Ryan were brothers, which is what led the citizens of Pine Valley to realize that he, and not Ryan, had raped Kit Fisher. Braden fled town after realizing what he did, and wasn't heard from again -- until his dead body showed up, courtesy of his younger brother Jonathan.
