My next scouting report (read my previous presentation here) contains what can only be described as a special category of fighter. They’re not just strong. They’re not just merciless. They’re BRUTE.
Their color is the color of anger. The color of passion. The color of blood:
Their battle behavior is pretty simple: reach the enemy as fast as you can, hit them as hard as you can, and mind about nothing else.
I don’t think a human will ever be able to assume the role of Brute. It requires inhuman strenght and no fear of pain and death. I’ve only seen ungodly beasts assuming this role, and once an Orc, carrying an axe, was strong and accurate enough to be a Brute in the Arena. But that was all.
If you think the opposing team will spread their combatants to make ranged attacks against you, having a Brute on your side might help a lot, because, to them, no target is juicier than a flimsy, unprotected, isolated ranged combatant.
