Brother Eugene

Character Analysis

Brother Eugene is a young, inexperienced teacher. Unluckily, his classroom, Room Nineteen, is the target of The Goober's assignment. Although all we hear are rumors, we're pretty sure that watching his classroom fall apart before his eyes gave him a nervous breakdown. Nice guys just don't survive at Trinity, teachers or students. See "Setting" for a bit more on Brother Eugene and Room Nineteen.
