Brutes were one of the most powerful Husk variants, being a mutated Krogan body with the head of a Turian stuck on. In essence these creatures had all of the physical prowess and brutality of a Krogan, but with the tactical mind of a Turian. This deadly combination ensured that the Brutes were tough customers, and rivaled only by the Banshees and Harvesters as the most dangerous of all Husks. Despite this though, they were not invincible, and Commander Shepard and their allies destroyed several during the Reaper War. They were presumably wiped out at the war's conclusion.
