Originally the Knights of the Slice were portrayed by hired union actors for live events. As the need for the Knights to run security alongside deliveries increased, the huge insurance liability for putting outside contractors at risk was too much to bare. So Pizza Shunt CEO Fred had the idea to use corporate staff, with the proper training, as security. With employee contracts already covering any fatal eventualities, Fred could fill the suits with his own people.
Unfortunately, 99% of his staff was morbidly obese due to constantly eating Pizza Shunt’s offerings, so filling the role came down to who could actually fit into the suit’s measurements.
Ironically, it was something as insignificant as dietary restrictions that led to the selection of Lime & Brick. Lime had severe allergies to diary, gluten, and.. well… everything. Brick, a committed pacifist, was strictly vegan and plant-based.
"Brick was pushed from a young age by aggressive parents to be the absolute best. His days were spent in intense academics, exercise, and martial arts. A child prodigy, he found med school to be completely dull and left abruptly to dive into his real love, computers. Taking a job in the IT department of Pizza Shunt, he was a natural fit for the role of a Knight of the Slice…no really, he literally fit in the costume and was given the job.
Brick strives to be in harmony with nature and detests all forms of violence, although he is often forced into battle to do his job. A life-long vegan, he is at odds with the animal body count his employer Pizza Shunt needs in order to churn out such massive amounts of food…perhaps he has an ulterior motive for taking that IT job?"
Powers: A super-human ability to communicate with any type of computer and also really good at untangling Playstation cords. Secret identity, Nicholas Shin. Weaknesses: His sweeping bangs blind him.
