The Brute (a super-villain for Fate Core)

Real Name: Edwin Brutus Dane

Edwin Brutus Dane was serving 20 years for armed robbery when his metahuman abilities manifested. He tore out of the prison, killing three people in the process, and he's been working as hired muscle for one criminal outfit or another ever since.

Since his manifestation, he's been stuck in the form of an 8-foot-tall purple monster, so there's really no chance for him to lead a normal life. The anger and poor impulse control that sent him to prison in the first place is seemingly magnified by his present condition. The money helps, but only for a little while.
