Fat Angus is a character in Disco Elysium.

Background[edit | edit source]

Angus is a member of the of the Hardie Boys and the Débardeurs' Union. He was involved with staging the hanging of Ellis Kortenaer.[1] It is implied he was the one who carried Ellis Kortenaer’s body to the hanging.[2]

He seems to be friendly with Ruby, and talked with her about radio equipment.[3] He is not very knowledgeable in entroponetic radio equipment.[4] According to Klaasje, he and Titus are brothers.[5] However, Titus talks about having to inform Angus’ mom of his death implying that they are not siblings.[6] Titus seems to genuinely care for Angus and wants to look out for him.[7] Titus and Eugene are also appreciative of the work Angus does taking notes on radio transmissions.[8]

He is younger than Titus.[9] He uses an inhaler.[10] He weighs more than 130 kilograms and wears size 46 boots.[11] His feet smell strongly enough to be noticeable from a distance even if he has shoes on.[12]


Interactions[edit | edit source]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  1. FAT ANGUES - "We didn't kill him! We didn't even *hang him*, he was dead when..." He takes a breath, wheezing.
  2. 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?<ref> His job within the group is to listen to and record intercepted radio communications.<ref>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."
  3. FAT ANGUS - "We were talkin' about radio equipment. She said she's doing Ulan frequencies and a pale-something. I don't know more."
  4. LOGIC - This guy barely understands what he's talking about.
  5. KLAASJE (MISS ORANJE DISCO DANCER) - "Last week. Angus and Titus's brother -- I think he's called Tibbs -- took care of it." She takes a drag.
  6. TITUS HARDIE – “Yeah." He takes a swig from the whiskey bottle. "Had to tell Angus's mum about the *honour* that was bestowed upon his son... she didn't share your optimism, copper. But fine... Fuck it. To each his own."
  7. EMPATHY - His 'all muscle' comment wasn't sarcastic. He's genuinely trying to look out for Angus.
  8. 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."
  9. 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."
  10. TITUS HARDIE - "Angie, where's your goddamn inhaler? You sound like you're dying."
  11. 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.
  12. FAT ANGUS - Awful smell. His feet stink from all the way over there, despite having boots on.
