He was Julius Caesar's right-hand man and good friend, who helped and assisted him through his many conquests and attempts at gaining power.

To Be Added

Ephiny's and Pompey's DeathEditEdit

He first met Xena and Gabrielle (face-to-face) when he killed Ephiny. He was then captured by Xena and the Telaquire Amazons and sentenced to death, but was later set free when Gabrielle decided to make a peace with the Roman Empire. Brutus displays honor and experience when Amarice attempts to intimidate him. Caesar's right hand man is shown to be a true combatant when he claims to Xena and Gabrielle that ha has no regrets for killing Ephiny since he killed her honorably. Brutus, despite his belief of Caesar, is fiercely loyal and dedicated for example he proves his nobility by proposing to Xena and Gabrielle to send him to Pompey so they Amazons could be spared. After Pompey's death, Brutus respects the peace treaty with the Amazons proving he is a man of his word contrary to Caesar.

Cleopatra's Death and ConsequencesEditEdit

With Xena and Gabrielle presumed dead and the Roman Empire steadily improving, Brutus moved up in the Roman hierarchy. In order to make the Roman Empire grow, he tried to secure provinces. He secretly assassinates Cleopatra, Pharaoh of Egypt. To prevent Egypt suffering the consequences of becoming a Roman province, Xena poses as Cleopatra, but becomes romantically involved with the main suspect for her murder - Marc Antony. When he discovers that Cleopatra is in fact dead, he and Marc Antony begin a great battle, in effort to gain control of the Province. Xena kills Marc Antony, while Gabrielle kills Brutus.

Alternate RealityEditEdit

When Caesar escapes from the Underworld, he tampers with the fate of Xena, creating an ideal world, where he and Xena are Emperor and Empress of Rome, respectively. He includes Brutus in this world, in order for him to exact his revenge. Brutus acts very loyal to Caesar in this reality, much like he did before he killed him, only this time Caesar betrays and kills him. However, reality reverts to normal after Gabrielle shatters the alternate universe.

Background InformationEditEdit

  • Franklin did his own stunts for the "Brut-drag" in "Endgame."

  • Brutus is one of few characters to have appeared in five seasons of Xena: Warrior Princess; the others being Callisto, Ephiny, Aphrodite and Argo.
