While grieving over the death of their young son, Zack, Hope and Bo Brady found comfort in one another, and Ciara is conceived, although it takes several months for Hope to learn she is pregnant. When she eventually learns that she is pregnant, a classic "Who's the daddy?" story line begins. Hope had been to Morgan Island with Patrick Lockhart where, in a moment of weakness, she had found comfort in his arms.
Tests were run and it was "determined" that Hope's unborn child was Patrick's. Unbeknownst to Hope and Bo, Patrick had paid the doctor to fix the test. Despite believing Patrick to be the father of her unborn child, Bo and Hope get back together, pushing Patrick to the point he decides he needs to kidnap Hope.
Ciara was originally born on December 29, 2006 but her birthday was changed to July 16, 2004 then March 18, 1998. Ciara was born in a warehouse, delivered by Bo. Patrick reveals her true paternity before being arrested.
Ciara's name was selected by fans in an online poll. Out of the five original choices, narrowed down to three, Ciara Alice Brady was the winner.
Tragically, when father Bo Brady returned after three years of being away in 2015, he soon died of terminal cancer. In 2016, she finally graduated from high school with her niece Claire Brady, her cousin Joey Johnson, and her friends Theo Carver and Jade Michaels.
Ciara was originally born on December 29, 2006 but her birthday was changed to July 16, 2004 then March 18, 1998. Ciara was born in a warehouse, delivered by Bo. Patrick reveals her true paternity before being arrested. Ciara lives with Hope and Bo the first couple of years of her life before living with Hope, Doug and Julie after her mother and father separate for a short while. Ciara's parents have since reunited and separated again. She is also best friends with Theo Carver. Ciara had a scuffle with a boy named Chase Jennings at school.
This ended up bringing Hope and Chase's father Aiden Jennings into conflict, but they eventually started dating. Ciara and Chase started to get along and Ciara supported Hope marrying Aiden. Sadly, Aiden tried to kill Hope and was later killed in a scuffle with Bo. Ciara did her best to support Chase, but she wanted her parents to get back together. Bo died soon after from terminal cancer, and Ciara asked Chase to come to the funeral with her. Ciara did her best to help Chase fit in with the family, but she found out he was bullying Theo. Chase later raped Ciara, mistakenly believing she wanted him. This left Ciara traumatized and she started acting out. Ciara eventually confessed to her niece, Claire Brady, that Chase rasped her. Claire, Theo, and Joey Johnson teamed up to capture Chase, so Ciara could confront him.
When Abigail Deveraux was presumed dead in a plane crash, Ciara moved into the DiMera mansion to help Chad DiMera raise his and Abigail's son, Thomas Deveraux. During this time, Ciara developed a crush on Chad. This angered Theo, who also had feelings for Ciara, and warned her Chad would break her heart. Ciara was no longer needed at the mansion when Chad realized he couldn't care for Thomas while grieving Abby, so he let Lucas Horton, and Adrienne Johnson care for Thomas. By this time, Theo and Claire were dating and Claire was as starting to get into music.
Ciara noticed her niece was starting to become self-centred. Ciara tried several attempts to move on from Theo, and went on several online dates. None of them seemed to work out until she met Wyatt. Ciara and Wyatt seemed to have tons in comment and her relationship with Claire started to heal because she no longer wanted Theo, and was really into Wyatt. So much so that she would buy him coffee and pretty much do his homework for him. Theo saw this and revealed that he has set Wyatt and Ciara up by telling Wyatt everything about Ciara. Ciara was furious with Wyatt and Theo for lying to her. So furious that Ciara decided to leave town for a bit, and stay with Shawn in Hong Kong. She made her farewells to her loved ones, promising that she will be back.
On December 1, 2017, Ciara finally returned to Salem. She drives up on her father's motorcycle. While Claire and Tripp welcome her back, she isn't civil, she accuses Claire of cheating on Theo. She blames Claire for what happened to Theo and promises to make her pay. She's done with being friends with selfish people. Ciara meets with her mom at the Brady Pub. Ciara informs her she's been riding her father's motorcycle. Hope snags the helmet and says she can't use it. Hope reminds Ciara that her cousin David died on a motorbike accident. While arguing, Ciara learns her mother and Rafe broke up. In the end, she reluctantly hands over the keys and stomps off.
