Within the brewery known as SoulStorm Brewery, the three governing heads of office- Vice President Aslik, General Dripik and Director Phleg -had all been killed by the Mudokon renegade and former slave Abe, leaving SoulStorm Brewery to be run by the Brewmaster.
While sneaking through the brewery, Abe found the Brewmaster, a Glukkon dressed in a white lab coat, questioning a Slig guard on tear production. The Slig stated that they were running at least twenty gallons an hour, which caused the Brewmaster to angrily chastise the Slig, stating that it was not nearly enough, as without tears, SoulStorm Brew would have a lighter, less rich flavor and would become smooth without being bitter; the Brewmaster insisted that the Slig might as well take out the Mudokons’ bones. The Slig insisted that Mudokons kept disappearing and that it wasn’t his fault, but the Brewmaster insisted on not hearing excuses, and demanded tears, ordering the Slig to turn up the gauge.
Personality and Traits Edit
The Brewmaster was often seen dressed in a white shirt, black-and-white wingtip shoes and white lab coat adorned with a golden framed watch held by a white band on his shoulder, attached to a strap on his left shoulder but would wear a green suit with dark green lapels for board meeting. A harsh taskmaster, the Brewmaster would scream at his employees for results and was passionate about the brew turning out just right. Unlike other Glukkons, the Brewmaster had worse dental structure, as his gums were more exposed, revealing very short teeth, and spoke with a prominent French accent.
Good Ending Edit
Should the player successfully save enough Mudokons, Abe causes a meltdown at the boilers, causing the alarms to go off and a Slig scurries away on his arms. The Brewmaster stands before the gauges, stating that it isn’t fair, that the brews had twice the flavour, before burning alive in the factory, which explodes entirely.
Bad Ending Edit
Should the player not successfully free enough Mudokons, Abe wakes up in the Tear Extractor after being knocked out by other angry Mudokons and the Brewmaster remarks that the Tear Extractor is a thing of beauty. The Brewmaster calls out that the resulting brew will be their finest ever and the Slig operating the Tear Extractor asks whether they’ve got enough, to which the Brewmaster dismissively calls out for them to “go for the record” and to turn on the machine full blast. Abe is electrocuted and transfigures into a flock of birds that fly away, as the blasts from the machine were too much for him. The Slig cringes in fear at the Brewmaster’s reaction but the Brewmaster, at first in shock, laughs wickedly at Abe’s death, prompting the Slig to laugh with him.

Behind the Scenes Edit
- The Brewmaster’s passion for the brew turning out correctly as well as his over-exaggerated French accent are intended as parody of the French practice of wine-making.
