Brazel is one of the three main characters of the Benevolence Archives series. He is a male gnome, married to Rhundi Tavh’re’muil (male gnomes do not typically have surnames) and frequently partnering with the halfogre Grond in their adventures across known space. Brazel and Rhundi have fourteen children.
As a gnome, Brazel is short, standing only about 1.3 meters tall. Gnomes are covered in fur, and Brazel’s is a fairly standard medium brown in color. He is picky about his clothing, with expensive tastes, and has learned to be a fairly talented tailor after years of tearing his clothes during missions. He is the pilot of the Nameless, and is a skilled mechanic, half-decent hacker, and an excellent pickpocket. He favors concealed weaponry and prefers to talk his way through difficulty rather than fight– although the constant presence of a halfogre at his side certainly helps him convince others to take him seriously.
Brazel has occasionally been accused of having a bad temper. This is not a fair statement and the fact that many of the people who have repeated this accusation have found themselves shot soon afterward is unrelated.
