Brutha was a young novice in the Omnian Temple. He is apparently 17, which is old for a novice. Despite having never learned to read, he displayed an excellent, almost photographic memory and has perfect recall of anything he sees or hears. He can quote chapter and verse from Omnian Scripture. He can also estimate time and distance accurately. Om speaks to him by sending his voice directly into Brutha's brain. He later became the Eight Prophet of Omnianism. He was chosen solely on account of being the only true believer of the god Om, in a world dedicated to only his church rather than belief in the god himself. He is occasionally cited by characters that are followers of the Omnian faith, such as Reverend Mightily Oats in Carpe Jugulum.
