Ever wonder why Brawlers fight? What started it all? If you’re like me who’s craving for a storyline of some sort, you’re in luck because I’ll be listing the various factions of the brawler world, and a rough overview of why all these brawlers are duking it out.
There’s no story in this goofy game so I’m gonna write some up.
Welcome to Brawlville
Most of the Brawlers are residents of Brawlville, an old town located smack dab in the middle of the US. Crime has always been about, with local gangs always roaming, but the sheriff and his family have always kept them at bay. This changed several months ago when a massive meteor landed 100 feet from the general store.
This meteor contained a huge amount of bright purple gems, with unknown properties. Since then everyone’s been trying to get their hands on them. The town’s been divided, and since then more meteors have been landing all over. No one fully knows what the gems do, but it’s clear they’re something special.
The Junker Family:
A family who’s been living in the town of Brawlville for generations, they’ve long since been the town’s peacekeepers. Currently, the son Colt is the town’s sheriff, ever since his father retired, and he’s been struggling to keep the gems out of criminals’ hands since the meteor came.
However, he’s not alone; his mother Pam is a former nurse for the army. She built new devices to save lives and now lends her talents to protect the town. There’s also Colt’s younger sister Jesse. Although she’s quite air-headed, she’s always had a knack for fixing machines. She brings the technological ability of her Mother but puts her own spin on it.
Shelly and the Gems
Aptly named for their frequent attempts to steal gems from others and secure locations they think meteors might land, Shelly and co. are the number one crime organization of Brawlville.
Shelly’s keen wit lets her lead well, but she has support from her partner, Brock, too. Quieter and more reserved, Brock has less of a taste for the limelight than Shelly, but don’t let that fool you! He provides just as much firepower to the team than Shelly, if not more! He also has her beat hands down in the dance department.
Of course, these two wouldn’t be nearly as successful without Darryl the Barrel. The head enforcer of the gang, he was initially created by Dynamike in his earlier experiments, but eventually left Dynamike due to his dislike of Dynamike’s outlook on the crystals.
Piper de la Prim and her Noble Servants
Another family with roots deep in the town of Brawlville, the de la Prim’s are the far more infamous parallels to the Junker family. The previous heads of families attempted to take control of the entire town through money and manipulation but were beaten back by the residents of Brawlville.
Now, the new head of the family, Piper de la Prim has returned in an attempt to take control of both the town and the gems, in order to gain their power. By her side are the cactus Spike and the mystic Tara. Spike moves little and talks less, but he is always seen by the side of Piper.
Though no one except Piper truly knows why, some have speculated it is the desert claiming that the town belongs to the de la Prim family, while others say the cactus is being forced to do Piper’s bidding. Tara is just as much of a mystery. Hired by Piper to assist in the collection of gems, Tara has been sighted without Piper all over town, oftentimes communicating with Crow or Poco.
El Primo the Amnesiac
El Primero is a world-renowned superstar, beloved worldwide as being the greatest Lucha libre combatant in existence. El Primo chose to be named after him after he was struck by a meteor and lost his memory.
Once El Primo awoke, he accidentally smashed the meteorite, sending gems in all different directions over Brawlville. Now, hoping to both regain his memory and prevent others from suffering the same fate, he collects gems all over Brawlville, giving some to Dynamike, and using some to maintain his own power, which is constantly weakening without the constant use of the power of the gem.
The Lonely Bull
Despite his looks, Bull Blanco is an intelligent and loyal person. He owns and runs the bakery in town, and shared a fierce loyalty with his friend Elijah Pajaro. The two were intensely close, so much so that they had plans of combining Elijah’s store with Bull’s bakery to create one large Super Shop. This all changed one day when Elijah mysteriously disappeared. The day in question also happened to be when the first of the meteors fell onto Brawlville. Bull saw the connection and has been collecting gems ever since, trying to find a connection between them and the disappearance of his beloved friend.
Mortis and Poco Dream Team
Porky Coolidge had passed away almost a decade before the first meteor struck. And yet, now a young man named Poco, the same size as Porky, has taken up residence in his home. He was first sighted in the graveyard along with Mortis. Townsfolk claimed they heard yelling earlier in the day, but it was too quiet to pinpoint where it was coming from. Eventually, the yelling became louder, and people realized it was coming from the graveyard. After rushing over, townsfolk discovered the young man now called Poco walking next to Mortis, the decrepit old grave keeper. Mortis claimed the man was his cousin, and that they had been trying to find his cat. Many feared Mortis due to his pale, gaunt figure and his apparent enjoyment of his grim job, and thus the two were left to their own being. To be noted, both Mortis and Poco are often seen attempting to recover gems side by side in the many brawls fought over them, though no one truly knows why.
No one truly knows who Crow is or where he came from. His arrival is synonymous with the arrival of the meteor, and he is often seen sneaking about the edges of the brawls, but his intentions are a mystery. Some speculate he was a regular bird cursed by the power of the gems. Due to his odd and mysterious poison, many wonder if he is related to the Borten, the poison being a tool of theirs. Still more believe he is simply another hungry for the power of the gems, and looking to take it for himself.
