BiographyEdit

BackgroundEdit

Brunhilde is originally from Lawrence and is of Lebanese descent[3].

"The Nasty Whale" FireEdit

Brun loses her job as bartender and apartment when the building containing both catches fire[4]. She subsequently moved in with Renee.

Brun continues her job search, but her attempts prove fruitless as all bars (along with Coffee of Doom, which she suggests could become a bar[5]) she tries to apply decline her. She does, however, accept an under-the-table gig at The Secret Bakery.[6] Elliot helps Brun find a bar-back position at The Horrible Revelation.[7]

PersonalityEdit

Brun often speaks in short sentence fragments, with a period at the end of each fragment. She collects clocks, has trouble understanding emotions, and tends to be very, very blunt. Brun becomes unable to talk when under a great deal of stress and communicates via written notes. She has been diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder some time in the past.[8]

HobbiesEdit

Brunhilde collects clocks. She once found a TimeMaster Model C in Coffee of Doom's basement.[9] Brunhilde later sold the clock for $3000.[10]

Brun's extensive knowledge of whaling techniques is presumably either a result of working at The Nasty Whale or is the reason she was employed there- despite her firm anti-whaling stance.[11] She claims to be able to kill a person making it look like a harpoon accident.[12]

Brun is known to be a fan of Kiki's Delivery Service[13], to the point where she requires a bow to do cleaning jobs.

Appearance Edit

Brun's hair has a floof level of 6, as compared with Pintsize's 0, Hannelore's 8, and Shelby's 11. She is known to have a tum.[11]

Speculation Edit

Various quirks of Brun's behavior had led to some readers to suspect that sho could possibly be autistic, possibly with Aspergers Syndrome, which is now referred to as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This has been confirmed about two years after character's introduction.[8] Brun frequently speaks in short, blunt phrases, a sign of impaired communication.[14][15][16][17] She displays unusual behavior in social situations, such as asking surreal questions.[18][19][13][20] In addition, Brun has trouble understanding emotions, often doing socially inappropriate things.[15][21][22][23][24][25]

She has an affinity for clocks[21], which, in addition to probably being a special interest for her, is also the culmination of her need to follow a routine and to keep on schedule[26]. Additionally, she lines up her clocks in a row.

She displayed signs of a shutdown when her workplace and home burned down[27], while also beginning to go nonverbal when she gazed at one of her clocks a few moments later[28].
