“It takes a special person to be able to see the darkness in someone and not condemn them.”
—Bronte, in Book 3: Everblaze
Bronte has brown hair. He has grayish-blue eyes and pointy ears because he is one of the Ancients, meaning he's over a few thousand years old.
Bronte is one of the Councillors. He also has the job of mentoring Sophie in Inflicting because he is the only Inflictor besides her. He believes that the Council needs to work and understand the general public because they are currently too detached - a view Councillor Kenric also shared; Councillor Oralie shares this opinion as well. Bronte often walks among the people in the working-class cities.
Bronte is very grumpy and is in a consistently foul mood. (This is later on revealed to be in part, because of his ability.) It may also have to do with being an Ancient. Earlier on in the series, Bronte very much dislikes Sophie. He ignored the evidence that she existed, so when she was found to exist after Alden had searched, Bronte was not happy. However, as the series progresses, it seems like Bronte is not so anti-Sophie after all, and becomes one of her few Council supporters. In Nightfall, the book, this becomes so much that Sophie thinks that someone kidnapped Councillor Bronte and replaced him with someone else. His mind is described as icy in comparison to Fitz's, as it feels like an icy gust. This reflects onto his personality.
Sophie also tried to inflict positive emotions on Bronte, and Bronte actually needed dark emotions to stop having positive emotions.
