Brisket, Loveable Meat

Season One Story

One of the game’s few second-generation stars, Brisket was always going to be a Butcher, right from birth. Her mother was a low-ranking official at the guild, and her father a highly regarded Guild Ball player, a relationship not entirely approved by either the guild or the Guild Ball team itself. Whilst her parents might well have walked a fine line of condemnation and grudging acceptance, Brisket has always been a welcome member of both bodies. Even a man as bluntly unaffectionate as the Ox grudgingly regards her as a ‘good girl’ and one of his boys and she is a huge hit with the fans; most of whom would sell their own family for the chance to spend any time with her.

Touted as one of the most desirable players in Guild Ball history, for many, the juxtaposition of such a comely woman on such a savage team seems entirely at odds; until they spend any time with her. Stubborn, hard, cantankerous and spiteful, no one crosses Brisket and lives to tell the tale. Quite to the contrary of what one might expect, this low cunning and her vicious nature doesn’t seem to play as detrimental with anyone.

Harsh though she may be and as unconcerned with the rules as any other Butcher’s Guild player, Brisket has the unique place in the team that she represents the only individual that actually cares to play Guild Ball the traditional way, by scoring goals instead of simply brutally bludgeoning her path to victory. The guilds highest goal-scorer for decades now, she attracts more attention from the opposition with each match, the most foolish of whom likely see her as a soft touch compared to the other members of the squad.

This hasn’t gone unnoticed by her team-mates, but if some of them consider her as the weakest link in their line up, it doesn’t show in the way that they treat her, always one of the pack. Brisket is one of the gang, as much as the Boar or Shank. Fortunately for her, Brisket rarely lacks protection on or off the field; for a team with as indebted a fraternity to each other as the Butchers, to mess with one of them is to pick a fight with all of them.

And no one wants to bring that pain down on their heads.

Top Tip

Brisket has always been a goal scoring machine, and before the Butcher's Civil War kicked off, that was her sole purpose in the Butcher's Guild. With Unpredictable Movement and Charmed [Male] Brisket is able to keep the ball safe, with Super Shot and an impressive KICK stat of 3/8" she is able to threaten the goal from 18". A perfect way to round out a game of Guild Ball, coupled with 4 Take-Outs.
