HB, short for the Hegemonic Brute, is among the elite tier agents of Derse in any Sburb game session, along with the Courtyard Droll, the Draconian Dignitary, and the archagent, Jack Noir. His size and strength speak for themselves, and his penchant for brutality makes him an invaluable asset, in theory.

Three distinct incarnations of the Hegemonic Brute from three different sessions have appeared in Homestuck, as well as an additional (the original) non-canon incarnation. In the Trolls' universe post-reckoning, he goes by the alias Hearts Boxcars.

BiographyEdit

Universe A2 (post-scratch trolls') SessionEdit

Main article: Hearts Boxcars

The instance of the Hegemonic Brute in the post-Scratch trolls' session was exiled during the game, and came to reside on post-apocalypse Alternia. Under the name Hearts Boxcars, he was a member of the notorious Midnight Crew, and a main character in the Homestuck intermission.

Universe B1 (pre-scratch kids') SessionEdit

Burlier Agent

The Hegemonic Brute's first task in this session involves handling a troublesome prisonerSburb Logo who won't stay in his cell, but even HB is no match for the astonishing mangrit of John Egbert's Dad.

Sometime after that embarrassing failure, around the time Jack rises to power, HB moves downSburb Logo to the battlefield, spying on the White King. A Parcel Mistress visits the king, and HB witnesses him deactivate his scepter and hand it over to her, along with his crown. Reporting this andSburb Logo seizing the opportunity, he jumps her and attacks, causing her to let go of the scepter and sending it flying down a nearby ravine, which later will be recovered by CD and delivered to Jack. Despite his advantage however, he is overwhelmedSburb Logo by PM in the end, who beheads him with the sword Jack had given her earlier.

Universe B2 (post-scratch kids') SessionEdit

Dirk beheads HB

When the Dersite royalty is usurped by a new order, an initiative is launched to murder the kids' dream selves. The Hegemonic Brute is tasked withSburb Logo taking on one member of the trickier pair, sneaking into Dirk Strider's dream room while he is distracted. Unfortunately for HB, Dirk notices him and is able to react extremely quickly, distracting him long enough to behead him. As insult to (fatal) injury, Dirk later impales his head on a pike to stage a public uprisingSburb Logo.

TriviaEdit

  • Both of his deaths have been caused via decapitation.Sburb Logo
    • This may be a reference to the page in the first intermission where Hearts Boxcars bites off Eggs's headSburb Logo.
    • It may also be a reference to Alice in Wonderland's Queen of Hearts, and her famous line "Off with his head" as all characters associated with hearts- save for Meulin- have been decapitated at some point in the story.
  • He has also always been the first to die among the four Dersite agents.
