Carmen Sandiego Wiki

"It's time you all heard the true name of V.I.L.E.: Villains International League Of Evil."

Coach Brunt is a Professor at V.I.L.E. Academy, and one of the five members of the V.I.L.E. Faculty, who double as the Academy's instructors, Brunt being in charge of combat training and physical conditioning.

While Carmen was growing up on V.I.L.E. Isle, Coach Brunt was the closest thing she had to a mother figure. Her nickname for Carmen was Lambkins, a reference to Carmen's former code name, "Black Sheep."

Carmen suspected that Coach Brunt was the one who found her on the side of the road in Argentina. Coach Brunt was strongly in favor of allowing Carmen to enroll in the Academy at a younger age than those usually admitted.

Among The Faculty members, Coach Brunt remained Carmen's staunchest protector and advocate until the latter's departure from V.I.L.E. Isle.


Coach Brunt is a large and muscular middle-aged woman. She has short brown hair that has been dyed green. She wears a black, green, and grey tracksuit and speaks with a southern accent.


Grounded, jovial and direct. Coach Brunt is one of the more upfront members of the V.I.L.E. academy. Never failing to state her mind or poke fun at her fellow instructors when she feels the need for it. She considers the younger agents of the organization to be family, with her being the 'Mama Bear'. This maternal nature however belies the brutal side of her, which comes out whenever someone forsakes this ideal, with her becoming unhesitant to step forth and use her formidable strength to beat discipline into them, and going further, killing them if they refuse to return to the fold. She isn’t as intelligent as the rest of her comrades, being more direct with what she states and often has little to no idea with what the Faculty is talking about, example being when she failed to recognize V.I.L.E.’s ancestral insignia. Additionally, she appears to be emotionally dependent on the “familial structure” V.I.L.E. has, being worried when she (correctly) thought Gunnar would leave her behind in Scandinavia.


Season 1

Coach Brunt is one of the five members of V.I.L.E. Academy who contributed to Black Sheep's upbringing.

She was one of the four members who supported her admission to V.I.L.E. Academy and defended her from expulsion following the usual water balloon attack on Cookie Booker.

After the incident in Morocco, Brunt guilt tripped Black Sheep into being sorry, hoping it would make her more complacent to V.I.L.E. for her remedial year.

Following the harddrive incedent, Brunt checked to make sure that all students were in their bunks and later, along with Professor Maelstrom, discovered Cookie tied up in the closet.

After Carmen's departure and escapades, Brunt felt betrayed, as Carmen had abandoned their "family".

When Professor Maelstrom was explaining his proposal to steal the Magna Carta, Brunt had no idea what he was talking about, until he compared it to the Declaration of Independence.

When Shadowsan recommended sending Tigress to San Francisco to retreve the $10,000,000 stamp from Mime Bomb, Coach Brunt thought Tigress was not a good choice, due to her defeat by Carmen in Indonesia, so she sent the Cleaners on ahead, just in case. She later bragged about this when Tigress ended up failing the mission and had to be retrieved by the Cleaners.

Brunt and Shadowsan later traveled to Poitiers, France to confront Chase Devenaux, who they suspected was Carmen's partner in crime. They kidnapped him and tried questioning him about Carmen and A.C.M.E.. When he refused to cooperate, they put a brain scrambling helmet on him that would force the truth out of him.

When they saw Carmen through the window, Shadowsan ordered her to continue the interogation while he pursued, but Brunt decided that he was not the boss of her and decided to pursue Carmen as well.

She lost sight of "ol' Stone Face", but found Carmen. The coach pursued The Crimson Ghost to an alleyway, only to discover that it was actually Zack in a Carmen costume.

Brunt rushed back to find the real Carmen helping Devenaux. Brunt seals the exit and claims that she doesn't approve of the law abiding company that Carmen has been keeping.

Carmen attempted to beat Brunt and escape with Devenaux, only to be stopped by a violent retailation from the Coach.

She offered Carmen a chance to return nicely. After Carmen refused, Brunt attempted to bear hug her to death, officially moving on from caring about her, but before she could squeeze tight enough to suffocate, Shadowsan used a nerve pinch knock her out.

By the time she woke up, Carmen and Shadowsan were gone, and she called the Cleaners for a pick up.


As one of the five masterminds of V.I.L.E, Coach Brunt has near supreme authority over the organization.

She has an abnormal amount of strength, able to lift up a fully grown man off the ground with one hand and crush and bend thick bars of steel with her bare hands.

Coach Brunt has an exceptional level of endurance, as she was affected very little when Carmen tried to shock her with a tazer.

Brunt is highly skilled in physical combat. She teaches self defense at V.I.L.E academy and was able to effortlessly defeat her former student, Carmen Sandiego, despite the latter being younger and in her prime and using several gadgets to fight her.

Brunt has surprisingly quick reflexes, despite her large size, catching a number of opponents off guard throughout the series.

While she may come off as dumb muscle, she's shown to be quite intelligent, such as knowing the U.S. Constitution. She shows it further by understanding Maelstrom's gambit in the season two finale by telling Carmen that Shadowsan killed her father on orders from V.I.L.E. in order to turn the two against each other, though she does admit to not liking such methods personally.
