Brute is the leader of the Vanguard and Marta Lualdi's father. Brute's ultimate goal is to rule Sylvarant and destroy Tethe'alla because of the segregation made by the Tethe'allans to the Sylvaranti. After the reunification of the worlds, he begins to doubt the Church of Martel's beliefs, which is strengthened with his wife's passing, and shortly after he creates the Vanguard to overthrow it. At first, he never had the intention of being crowned king of Sylvarant. However, he was manipulated by Richter with the power of Solum's core and soon became someone completely different.
