The Green Mile


Stephen King

Nicknamed Brutal because of his size, Brutus is a sensitive, thoughtful guard who assists Paul in some of his most challenging tasks and only uses force when it is absolutely necessary. Brutal believes strongly in the ideas of justice and retribution, for he feels that God will send him to hell for murdering John Coffey, who is a gift of God. He decides to transfer out of E block after Coffey's execution, proving that his moral and spiritual qualms about the electric chair are sufficient to make him leave his job.
