Fat Angus is a character in Disco Elysium.
Angus is a member of the of the Hardie boys and the Dockworkers' Union. He was involved with staging the hanging of Ellis Kortenaer. He was the one who carried the hanged man’s body to the hanging. His job within the group is to listen to and record intercepted radio communications.
He seems to be friendly with Ruby, and talks with her about radio equipment. He is not very knowledgeable about entroponetic radio equipment. Titus seems to genuinely care for Angus and tries to look out for him. Titus and Eugene also seem to be genuinely impressed by the work Angus does.
He is younger than Titus. He uses an inhaler, though seems not to carry it around all the time. He weighs more than 130 kilograms, and wears size 46 boots. His feet smell strongly enough to be noticeable from a distance even when he has boots on.
- Angus is encountered on day 2 at the Whirling-In-Rags Union cafeteria, and is the weakest link in the Hardie chain.
- He will always die at the tribunal regardless of the player's actions.
TITUS HARDIE – "I'm getting a bizarre message from Angus's stomach right now. It says... wait, what is it saying, Angie?"
FAT ANGUS – In the middle, heaving and wheezing: big guy, boot size 46, deep marks. Probably carried the victim over. He alone is 130 kilos; add the man in armour and you could easily exceed 220.
FAT ANGUS – "We didn't kill him! We didn't even *hang him*, he was dead when..." He takes a breath, wheezing.
VISUAL CALCULUS – 7) The glowing outline of a standard work boot, no 46. The imprints are *twice* as deep as the others -- the weight exceeds 200 kilograms. Fat-Angus -- carrying something?
YOU – "Which one of you is doing this advanced radio work then?"
FAT ANGUS – "It's not advanced," the heavy man wheezes. "You're just holed up in a coop all day, writing down what they say. It gets hot as hell in there."
FAT ANGUS – "We were talkin' about radio equipment. She said she's doing Ulan frequencies and a pale-something. I don't know more."
LOGIC – This guy barely understands what he's talking about.
EMPATHY – His 'all muscle' comment wasn't sarcastic. He's genuinely trying to look out for Angus.
TITUS HARDIE – "Don't put yourself down, Angus. It's important work." The chief picks his beer back up -- to offer a silent toast.
EUGENE – "Yeah, man, you're like a radio genius or something. Those notes are some in depth stuff. Indexes and shit."
TITUS HARDIE – "But Angus..." He gulps. "He was just a stupid kid. Didn't realize the mess he'd gotten into... trusted me... Still, the balls on that kid! Went down fighting for someone else's shit like a fat angry bear."
TITUS HARDIE – "Angie, where's your goddamn inhaler? You sound like you're dying."
FAT ANGUS – Awful smell. His feet stink from all the way over there, despite having boots on.
