An interesting observation. The Brutes appear to be ceremonial temple guards (FS p.310), at least when they are not smacking the passengers from moving vehicles. As well, the Imperial Elite Protectors were surprised that Tartarus is allowed so close to a High One, especially the High Prophet of Truth (FS p.339). What is the history, and reputation of the Brutes? Do they too closely resemble the "filthy primates", Humans?
