Brad is not your typical valet parking employee and instead looks more like a street punk, with tattoos on his arms and piercings in his mouth and ears.
Brad - 01

Not your typical valet parking employee.

He fashions dark eyeliner, spiky hair and black-painted fingernails, which clash heavily with his uniform as a valet.

Even though he seems a bit insecure of himself, he will never give up on his search to make his way into the music industry and share his music with the rest of the world.


Brad works as a valet in Astral Recordings and dreams of the day he is given an opportunity to break into the music industry. With this in mind, he created a music demo with the intention of one day giving it to someone influential in the business.

His appearance clashes heavily with his uniform as a humble valet parking employee, implying he only took the job in order to give his demo to someone important or just out of pure necessity (or maybe both).

Brad's demo: "Valet of the Damned!!"

When we first meet him, he approaches Erica Raymond as she and the girls are coming out of the recording studio and desperately begs her to accept his demo, which she instinctively dismisses and instead orders him to bring her car.

The next time we see him, is at night outside of Astral, where Rio is trying to convince him to give him his mother's car keys. Brad asks what's in it for him and Rio proceeds to look for his wallet. Brad stops him and tells him that what he really wants is to have access in the industry, giving him his demo. Rio takes it and Brad gives him the keys.

Brad tries to buy Rio some time.

Erica arrives a few moments later and asks him to bring her the car. After an unsuccessful attempt to fool them and being "persuaded" by Zipper, he ultimately has to confess that Rio took the keys and then headed over to Starlight.
