A Long StoryEdit
Bruiser (formerly Chaz Roberts) is a Mutate enforcer working for Dr. BadGuy. He initially appears as a member of a motorcycle gang in Analogue City. Although unfriendly here, he is an NPC and not fought in combat. However upon solving The Case of the Pilfered Painting, the party tries to inform the gang that their friend was the thief but has been kidnapped, only to be laughed at. The party later returns to Analogue City only to witness Chaz and his fellow gang members being knocked out and abducted themselves.
Bruiser then later appears in his monstrous state when the party reencounters the thief, who has now been transformed into the Mutate known as The Raccoon. He, Perch and Berserk are attempting to bring The Raccoon into custody, and so like the Undetected Unit + Anacon battle, the fight is divided, with The Raccoon attacking both your party and the Mutate trio, but the Mutates only attacking The Raccoon -- should they succeed in defeating him they escape with him, removing his chance to become an available party member later. He appears again during this chapter on top of a roof that The Raccoon has been chased to, again with his fellow Mutate trio, but is knocked off the roof by Cruncher, who has shown up for the same reasons, who then disposes of Perch and Berserk as well.
Bruiser appears one final time in another (optional) boss battle after The Raccoon has joined the party, and will not appear otherwise. In this fight he is revealed to have had his spine broken and now wears cybernetic armor to allow him to continue to walk. This drastically increases his defense to nigh-invulnerability unless the armor is short-circuited. Upon his defeat here, he groans and does not get back up. He will remain on the ground groaning until the end of the chapter, and then won't be seen again.
