Braed is the brother/main clone/past self of Teost. When Teost stared into the mirror, Braed suddenly jumped out of the mirror. He lived for a month until Mafio was in one of his hunger fits, so he ended up eating Braed. Thankfully, Un named resurrected Braed after kicking Mafio in the stomach and regenerated Braed almost completely. I say almost completely because his right ear didn't come back, meaning he has impaired hearing. Seeing as the laws of time travel are set in (theoretical) stone, Teost's right ear vanished, also giving him impaired hearing.
