Bricks is a fairly recent arrival at Brundage House, but a fairly old non-human; he was one of the first products of chemical vivication of dead tissue. His creator, a young Dalkhrovan surgeon, deliberately built him on a large scale for ease of assembly. He weighs 800 pounds and is very strong, but is slightly clumsy and has reduced manual dexterity due to thick fingers. His frame is somewhat short and squat. Despite his intimidating appearance, he is highly intelligent, scholarly, and a vegetarian; he divides his time between the Brundage House library, where he enjoys talking with Safekeeper, and the gardens. His years of living among human beings have taught him to be stealthy, despite his bulk and awkwardness.
