General Info

Brutus, named after that Brutus, is an assassin warframe that specializes in quick, heavy-damage attacks. Using his Mark for Death mechanic, he can also prove to be useful in a team fighting against tough enemies / bosses.
He is (as you've probably guessed by now) a male warframe with a unique trait: a weapon on his right arm called the Matara ("Lance" in Latin, kudos to G-Translate).
The Matara (pronounced mae-TAH-rah) is a Corpus-manufactured arm-mounted melee weapon that spins rapidly while generating connected energy beams, creating a lance-like projection.

1. Mark For Death:

"Next successful attack will mark an enemy for assassination, making them receive bonus damage from all sources. Brutus' abilities are granted bonus effects if they are used to kill a marked enemy."

  • Costs 25 power. Affected by Power Efficiency.
  • After activating this ability, a successful attack (i.e. melee strike, ability use or a weapon shot) will mark the attacked enemy.
    • Missing an attack will not remove the effect; it lasts until an attack is landed successfully.
      • Attacking a marked enemy counts as a failed attack.
    • Explosive weapons will mark the first enemy affected by the explosion.
  • Mark lasts for 6 / 8 / 10 / 12 seconds. Affected by Power Duration.
  • Marked enemy receives 30% / 30% / 45% / 60% bonus damage from all sources. Affected by Power Strength.
  • Multiple enemies can be marked at a time; one enemy cannot be marked twice.
  • If Brutus kills marked enemies with his abilities, the abilities will be granted bonus effects.
  • Visuals:
    • Brutus performs a throat-slitting gesture (~0.6 sec cast, affected by Natural Talent), after which he is outlined with his energy colour.
    • Marked enemies are outlined and display a skull symbol above them. Affected by energy colour.

2. Backstab:

"Strikes enemies from the shadows, piercing their back with the Matara. Killing a marked enemy will allow the effect to be repeated at no cost while dealing bonus damage."

  • Costs 50 power. Affected by Power Efficiency.
  • Brutus teleports behind an enemy 20 meters away from him. Affected by Power Range.
  • The stab deals 350 / 500 / 650 / 800 total damage: half Puncture b Puncture, half Radiation b Radiation. Affected by Power Strength.
  • After performing the stab, Brutus is cloaked for 2 / 3 / 3 / 4 seconds. Affected by Power Duration.
    • If the target is Marked For Death and killed, Brutus can use Backstab on another target without any power cost as long as he is cloaked. This effect can be chained multiple times. Each kill grants bonus damage to the next cast in a chain; this effect stacks.
      • Can kill 1 / 2 / 2 / 3 enemies per cast. Not affected by Power Strength.
      • Each consecutive kill will grant a 15% bonus damage against next target.
  • Visuals:
    • Brutus cloaks himself and reappears behind his target. He then pierces and lifts his target with the Matara. From here, it branches into three:
      • If the target is Marked For Death, killed and the limit is not reached, the target disintegrates, and Brutus recloaks, allowing him to choose another target to Backstab.
      • If the target is killed and the limit is reached or the target isn't Marked For Death and killed, the target disintigrates, and Brutus cloaks himself.
      • If the target is not killed, Brutus lowers the target and cloaks himself.
    • Cannot lift bosses.

3. Something aka Not Yet Worked Out:

"Words words words."

4. Matara Hurricane:

"Spins viciously with the Matara extended, delivering deadly strikes to foes. Killing a marked enemy will increase the ability's duration."

  • Costs 100 power. Affected by Power Efficiency.
  • Brutus spins, dealing 100 / 100 / 175 / 250 damage per second in a 15 meter radius around him over a base period of 4 seconds. Affected by Power Strength and Power Duration. Not affected by Power Range.
  • Killing a marked enemy will make the Matara release a radial impulse, dealing 200 / 200 / 350 / 500 Radiation b Radiation damage to enemies in a 15 meter radius, while also extending the duration of the ability by 2 seconds. Affected by Power Strength. Not affected by Power Duration and Power Range.
  • Brutus moves 200% faster for the duration of the skill. However, he cannot jump, slide, wallrun or perform combat maneuvers. Not affected by Power Strength.
  • Visuals:
    • Brutus quickly charges the Matara projection device, then swiftly extends the Matara lance and begins to spin (~1 sec cast). Affected by Natural Talent.
    • Brutus is surrounded by "wind" effects like during Jat Kittag's charge attack.
    • Enemies killed by this ability are disintegrated.
    • If Brutus kills a marked enemy while the ability lasts, the Matara releases a bright flash along with a radial explosion.

What Is Appreciated

  • Artists: sketches are extremely demanded, and I would be greatful if you'd present them. You will be credited!
  • Community: constructive criticism. I realized that I was too naive when creating Sicorro, but this time I will attempt to be more open to your opinions.
    • Ideas for the third power are also appreciated!
