About

The Primary Brothers are Winnipeg's elite crime-fighting detective squad. Brothers by blood, these three courageous siblings are also united by the common purpose of ridding their hometown of the seedy criminal underworld that threatens it with destruction. Winners of numerous civic citations and awards for bravery, not to mention a record contract, these heroes have become Winnipeg’s most important weapon in taking back the streets.

On their own, each Brother has unique strengths and abilities that have earned them individual accolades, but when they combine forces and work together, they form an incredibly powerful team that seems impossible to beat. Using the combination of cunning detective skills, fantastic ground-breaking inventions, and good old-fashioned street justice, the Primary Brothers have started to bring order to the chaos.

Due to their astounding success in the war on crime, rumours abound that the Brothers may have some sort of mystical powers, but the fact is that little is known of the true origins of the Primary Brothers. The city needed help, and then one day The Primary Brothers were simply there, using their abilities to protect those who couldn’t protect themselves. Their selfless sacrifices – coupled with their indomitable spirit and movie-star good looks – have won this trio the support of the citizens of Winnipeg, and the hearts of adoring fans everywhere.

In a city whose future seemed to be filled with nothing but darkness, there is finally some colour starting to reappear. Although Winnipeg’s former slogan of “One Great City!” was abandoned years ago, with the Primary Brothers on the scene, this motto will soon ring true once more.

Biographies

 
Red is ready to strike!

RED

Place of Birth: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Age: Mid-thirties
Height: 5 feet, 9 inches
Weight: 175 pounds
Shoe size: 9

Bio: Seeing the rising crime in the streets of his beloved hometown of Winnipeg, Red decided that it was up to him and his brothers to do something, so he sent out the call to join forces. The siblings united to become the Primary Brothers, and began to dish out what Red likes to call “street justice” on the thugs and hooligans wreaking havoc on the innocent citizens.

As the fearless leader, Red is the idea-man of the trio. He flies by the seat of his pants, creating complex plans in mere seconds that always seem to work…not always exactly according to plan, but they get the job done every time. As the face of the Primary Brothers, Red likes to be the center of attention, and is equally at home in front of the camera or talking to witnesses at the scene of a crime.

With a bit of a temper that some might call “fiery”, Red has an affinity for all things involving combustion. A former F1 race car driver and ace pilot, Red takes care of the Brothers’ transportation needs. Given all the passion and confidence in this driven hero, as well as his abundance of charisma, it is not surprising that Red is also the ladies man of the team.

BLUE

Place of Birth: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Age: Early-thirties
Height: 6 feet, 2 inches
Weight: 185 pounds
Shoe size: 11 

Bio: Becoming a hero vigilante detective was a no-brainer for this suave man of mystery, who has dedicated his life to becoming the perfect weapon against crime. Trained in numerous forms of martial arts, weapons combat, and guerrilla warfare tactics, Blue has reached the pinnacle of human potential. He is so good, in fact, that they changed the meaning of the expression "feeling blue" from "feeling sad" to "being awesome".

A master of disguise, Blue feels at ease deep undercover, using one of his many elaborate disguises. Blue is also a skilled detective with a keen eye for detail, and has been instrumental in solving many of the Primary Brothers’ cases. Although he enjoys using his spare time to read up on the latest developments in weaponry, Blue feels most relaxed in the heat of battle, fighting side-by-side-by-side with his brothers against criminals and thugs.

As the middle brother growing up in Red’s shadow, Blue has a tendency to try to prove himself, and has a soft spot for people who give him the attention that he craves. Though he is a talented negotiator (unofficially credited with ending the Cold War), Blue sometimes questions his older brother’s leadership, leading to conflict. Having a bit of a temper himself – yet always the elite athlete – Blue likes to blow off steam by running, and typically bangs out 4 or 5 marathons each week.

YELLOW

Place of Birth: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Age: Late-twenties
Height: 6 feet, 1 inch
Weight: 185 pounds
Shoe size: 12

Bio: The youngest of the three, Yellow is the technical genius of the bunch. Gifted with great intellect and a wry sense of humour, he has an instinctive ability with all things electronic. Whether it is creating super-modern tracking and surveillance devices in the comfort of his lab, or reprogramming computer control systems in a criminal’s lair, Yellow is always cool under pressure.

An often-published and world-renown scientist, as well as a successful stand-up comedian, Yellow may be the ultimate example of human ingenuity. Though he could be using his genius to turn a profit, Yellow prefers to focus his talents on helping his brothers fight crime. Armed with an arsenal of gadgets and technical skills, not to mention his expertise with explosives, Yellow is definitely a guy you want on your side.

Yellow keeps a lower profile than his brothers, and while he tries to make sure that the cheesy lines are kept to a minimum while he is around, he usually has a sarcastic remark to lighten a tense situation. Yellow is always thinking of new things to invent, so when his brothers get into trouble and it seems like there is no way out, he usually has a trick or two up his sleeve that just might save the day.
