The Brute is a savage beast, constantly hungry and chomping down with its mouth full of sharp teeth. Physically powerful and supposedly unstoppable, sans for one sacred ritual. Just as a poem was required to release it, another is required to seal it back behind the legendary door in the woods. Once you got the Brute back in its hole...pray no one ever unlocks it.


The Brute is a very hard to characterize creature. It appears to be relatively muscled though it isn't very broad. The Brute is very tall, though it's exact height is unknown. It has a large mouth used for ripping his victim's flesh and tendons apart in a ill-fated attempt to soothe its voracious endless hunger. Its eyes are very thinly identified just above its mouth. The main feature of The Brute is the symbol burned into its head. It looks like a 'T' with a vertical eye above it surrounded by a small field.


The Brute is an ancient supernatural being that is restrained within a supernatural door in the forest near a colony. The colony appears to take place in a modern age, in appearance to the resident's shoes, but it is unclear as to what exact year it is. It is unclear when the Brute originated though it appears to be many thousands of years old. Its main appearance is in the 'Door in the Woods' where four children from the colony, the main one being Carrie, portrayed by Carissa Bazler explore and find the door, which is locked down with chains. Carrie and two of the four teases the fourth boy who is driven to strike at the lock with a stone repeatedly until the lock breaks. The chains slither off and the door creaks open. The boy who destroyed the lock appears to see the Brute first before being dragged inside and his head is devoured by the Brute inside whatever realm resides behind the door. The Brute then emerges and kills the two other kids and Carrie escapes back to her village. It's calm until the Brute attacks the village and begins to mercilessly massacre every villager indiscriminately. Carrie and her father escape back to the woods to lure the Brute back but the father attempts to sacrifice Carrie, but the Brute tackles her father into the realm and Carrie slams the door behind them, but not before her arm is torn off by the Brute. She recites the phrase "Brute, Brute, go back in your hole and spare the living one more soul," Then the beast goes silent and Carrie is left alone in the woods, with one arm.
