"Impossible! How can I keep losing to someone like you? You don't even have abs!" — Brutus
Brutus is one of the admins of Team Imperium and is known as the team's brawn.
Brutus is a muscular man whose most noticeable feature is that he doesn't wear a shirt. He has a large tattoo on his right pectoral. He wears a light blue and white cloth wrapped around his waist, held up by a gold belt. His armbands are the same shade of blue, as are his gladiator sandals. He has a piece of armor on his shoulder. His orange hair is long and wild.
Brutus is a boisterous man, very loud and very excitable. He has a strong sense of his own morality, which centers on a "might makes right" philosophy. He is notably distressed when he loses, as it presents the idea that he is in the wrong. He gets very distressed when his worldview is challenged.
In the "What if England Was a Pokémon Region?" video, Brutus reveals that he was abandoned as a child and raised by Lycanrocs, which also abandoned him. At some point, he joined Team Imperium (proving that he has at least some Poke-Roman blood from the family that got rid of him).
What If England Was a Pokémon Region?
Brutus arrived in Tuxon, alongside Nero, Sophia, and other Team Imperium grunts. At some point, he sets up Team Imperium's secret base, which makes him sore enough to take over an ancient bathhouse in order to relax his muscles. He first appears in the Poke-Roman baths, lounging in the water as Elizabeth/George makes their way through the grunts in order to reclaim the building from Team Imperium. He tries waving them away when he's approached, but after a few tries, he jumps out of the water and addresses Elizabeth/George. He accidentally reveals that Team Imperium has a secret base, but cuts himself off before anything else slips out so that Team Imperium doesn't seem evil. Brutus strongly believes that what Team Imperium is doing is morally sound and that they're just trying to help the people of Tuxon by taking over the region. He cuts himself off again, growing more agitated as he accidentally reveals more secrets. In order to prevent Elizabeth/George from leaving with Team Imperium's secrets, he challenges them to a battle. He is noticeably subdued after he loses and swears vengeance against Elizabeth/George before leaving and blowing up the bridge out of town.
He later appears at the Brighton Palace location alongside the rest of Team Imperium. When Elizabeth/George enters, Sophia and Brutus are working on some machinery in the room. Nero sends Brutus and Sophia to keep Elizabeth/George occupied while he enacts the final phase of their plan. Brutus eagerly battles them first. Upon losing, Brutus begins shouting angrily and questions whether he joined the wrong side as Team Imperium should be triumphant if they're in the right yet he's constantly losing against a child. As he monologues, Looker arrests him, breaking Brutus from his reverie. He is panicked when he doesn't see Sophia anywhere (as she escaped while he was distracted). Brutus blurts out any information that he has in order to not get arrested, including information about the legendary that could defeat the great dragon.
