Brute the comic at its simplest is the story of a young human female and her best friend, a young male bruin, who is incredibly strong, quick-tempered, durable and just coincidentally looks like a teddy bear, who are both stranded in space, far from their home-worlds, unable to return. They are forced to depend on their wits, and each other to get by and survive in the often cruel 'wild west' of the Milky Way galaxy.
It's the story of a group of miscreant bounty hunters seeking glory, but more immediately, enough credits to get to their next job.

Which makes you stronger, tougher and with quicker reflexes than anyone else around. Plus, you've a temper that tends to get the best of you at the best of times. Don't ever call you 'cute'.
Our heroine. Born to scientists on a research station on the edge of the galaxy. At age 14, her parents decided it was time for her to learn about life on Earth and sent her to stay with family there. Days later, the research station was destroyed, her family lost, her ship recalled, and Rose abandoned on space station with no way to get to the home she's never known, Earth. And then, it got bad... Rose is smart, tough, resilient, and independent. Brute is the only person she trusts... and then some...
