Brumm is an NPC added in the DLC of Hollow Knight, The Grimm Troupe. Brumm is a member of The Grimm Troupe who plays the accordion.
Brumm is an accordion player and can be found outside of Grimm's tent. He is the most loyal member in the troupe but later starts to question the rituals made by his master and its effects done on fallen kingdoms - his rebellious thoughts lead him to the idea that he and his comrades are only vessels to the Troupe and the ritual. Eventually, he helps The Knight banish The Grimm Troupe from Hallownest if players choose to ask for his help.
- Location: Brumm can be found at Dirtmouth, inside the Grimm Troupe's tent.
- Progression: Brumm moves to the Distant Village if you choose to meet him and ask for his help.
- Combat: Players may not kill Brumm.
- Rewards: Unlocks the Banishment Achievement/Trophy if you ask him to aid you in casting out the Troupe.
- Brumm appears with The Grimm Troupe, and gives you advice throughout your journey to collect flames for the Grimmchild. When collecting flames from Grimmkin Nightmares, he can be found in the Distant Village, with a free flame. When you take it, he says that he wants to banish the Grimm Troupe, and if you want to help him, then you can go back to Howling Cliffs. If you help him banish the Troupe, then when you go back to Dirtmouth, the Grimm Troupe will not be there, and you can find an NPC called Nymm (who is obviously Brumm) in the town, playing the Dirtmouth theme on his accordion. For full details on how to take the other path (completing the ritual instead of banishment), click above.
Very good. The child burns with flame.
Master... is waiting for you. Mrmm.
