Lore

I don't trust anything I can't build with my own two hands.
— Brutus

Brutus is one of Midas' many agents from Chapter 2: Season 2. He was the first agent to apparently defect from Midas and GHOST to work for SHADOW, but rejoined GHOST later on. He is a reoccurring character, who now works independently, though his current whereabouts are unknown.

Chapter 2: Season 2

Brutus could be found as a boss at The Grotto, a sea-bound base on the eastern side of Apollo, and was one of Midas' Agents. He can be seen in his SHADOW outfit in the trailer amidst other agents, indicating his nature as a possible double agent of sorts. He was heavily guarded by Grotto Henchmen and could be defeated. Like all bosses, he had his own unique drops: his Minigun and the Grotto Keycard - which could be used to unlock the vault. Inside the vault was a bounty of loot.

In Brutus' cutscene, his abilities as a weapons specialist and a professional agent can be seen, as he makes a split-second decision to throw a butcher's knife at a possible intruder, landing the knife square in the center of the target pinned against the door, now deterring whoever was to enter. In addition, several SHADOW outfits can be seen hanging up, indicating he does in fact change his clothes, they just mostly happen to be the same. Several portraits can be seen, including one with an unknown woman, and images of a GHOST mug and The Agency, further causing confliction over which his true allegiance was to at the time.

Later in the season, he was the first to join, or defect, to SHADOW. Whether he was always a part of the faction, or only decided to reveal it then, is still up for debate, as at the time he appeared to be against his Boss' faction, GHOST. Regardless, he was now being flanked by SHADOW Henchmen, and appeared in his SHADOW outfit, in a newly modified Grotto until the end of the season.

Chapter 2: Season 3

When the season began, he was seen boxing Ocean in his GHOST outfit on a raft, where some speculate he could have been training Ocean against SHADOW, the faction he no appears to not be involved in. He gets knocked out by Ocean, and has his helmet taken as a trophy.

His former Spy Base, The Grotto, is now flooded and has become Brutus' Basin, a couple inaccessible holes permanently filled with water. The ocean-facing entrance had been closed, indicating that Brutus and his henchmen could have made it out safely before the flood.

Chapter 2: Season 5

Following the fizzled end to the GHOST vs. SHADOW faction war, Brutus went into business for himself as a buyer, seller, and builder of weapons. He appeared to have been popular, as he had made contact with several other inhabitants on the island at the time, including The Reaper, who was a competitor in the arms business that didn't seem to like him, and Menace, a gladiator interested in working for him. He also was interested in fishing, aspired to be "top fisher".

Chapter 2: Season 6

Brutus can be seen in Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point Issue 2 fighting Harley Quinn and DJ Yonder in his SHADOW outfit.


Chapter 2: Season 7

During the Cosmic Summer Celebration, he goes on vacation as Beach Brutus and is seen talking to Ruby on a beach, near his (former?) boss Midas. He stays on the island for a smal while, proclaiming he is on vacation, and not seeming to mind the Alien Invasion - though he indicates the only reason he does not seem to care much is strictly because he is on vacation.

Trivia

  • Brutus ID is CID_692_Athena_Commando_M_HenchmanTough.
  • His Shadow outfit is in the Chapter 2 Season 2 launching screen when you launch the game in PC/Mac.
  • It appears that Midas and Brutus have at least a casual relationship towards each other during Chapter 2: Season 7
  • In Fortnite: China, his "Shadow" edit style has the mask off, unlike Jules, who has the skull removed.
  • A portrait once found in Brutus' Room, Shadow Lamps, and The Authority showed him in his "Shadow" edit style alongside a woman.
    • Despite nothing ever being confirmed, fans speculate it could have been Ruby, a person he is often seen with, or Hazard, a fellow SHADOW/A.L.T.E.R. operative.
  • When meeting Jules, she will call Brutus a traitor. She is referencing to Brutus resigning from SHADOW, the faction she belongs/belonged to. This could reference a scene from Julius Caesar, where Julius recognizes that Marcus Brutus had joined the conspiracy faction against him.
