Brimsley and his family live in a posh house, hosting a number of parties, and have sufficient money to attract the attention of the Bottle Street Gang, one of whom hid in their dumbwaiter all night to avoid detection.
Among the aristocracy, it is rumored that they worship the Outsider, through methods such as Mrs. Brimsley bathing in her nephew's blood. It is to these unconfirmed actions that their financial success is attributed. During the mission House of Pleasure, Bunting confesses to worshipping the Outsider with them. Lydia Brooklaine once secretly observed a party at the Brimsley household, and described the experience as "very strange".
Brimsley and his wife ended up in the Flooded District after Mrs. Brimsley caught the plague, and he feigned death along with her to be transported to the district. As the Dead Counter seemed more concerned with the value of his estate, Brimsley easily managed this. He slowly began to regret surviving the drop from the plague wagon as he still found his wife's nagging annoying.
- Brimsley shares the same character model as an aristocrat who can be found mourning over his son's death in the Flooded District.
- Brimsley believes himself immune to the plague, telling his wife and writing about it in his journal.
- In high chaos, this is clearly not so, as he is a weeper. The journal is not found in high chaos.
- Brimsley believes that, with his rescue, Dunwall may yet be saved.
