Branden the ladies man
Branden has been known as a ladies man for the odd reason that ga-matoran like being around him. Though ga-matoran fall for him, a lot of females he met did not. It is said that his very blood flows with the dew of the Sy-nui blueberries, one of three sy-plants female matoran are attracted too.
Branden the fighter
Though Branden is not a fighter he is a BZ-Guard spy. Given the flame gun and a special dew of fire he can shoot flaming lightning bolts out of his left hand. Because he is a spy no one knows. Except him and Shila.
Branden's brother Tom is very lazy. Before he became lazy he married a ga-matoran named Sarla. After a sy-plant accident she gave birth to their son little Jimmy. But after that Tom became lazy, so Sarla left him. Tom does not even pay child support so it is in Branden's hands to pay it.
