  • Brock people seem to have very rigid faces, as they are not substantially emotive. They seem primarily only capable of closing their eyes in most cases. As such, in most cases they tend to express themselves with bodily movement.
    • Some exceptions include Broque Monsieur, who can move his eyebrows, and even flip his head upside-down to look angry, Broque Madame, who has large lips and sultry eyes that display a fair number of emotions, and Broggy, who is capable of making aggressive faces at individuals he dislikes.
