Brains looks very much like an intelligent individual, fitting his name. His looks vary depending on the theme, but is clearly recognizable as the same character. In both themes, he has an eyepiece that covered one eye, and a mustache that is a gray colour. In the Power Miners theme, he wears a suit similar in appearance to Duke's, although his torso, sleeves, and gloves are white and his uniform's emblem shows a test tube instead of a drill. While with the Power Miners, his eyepiece simply attached via a "bar" to the side of his head.The actual eyepiece is just circled around his right eye and showed something shaped like a diamond piece, likely resembling a blue crystal in general.
In Atlantis, the eyepiece appears more like eyeglasses, with one glass much larger than the other. The "bar" goes out both sides, and one small eyepiece circled around his left eye. It appears as though it had no meaning except to hold the larger eyepiece in position. The larger eyepiece was also a large circle, but it had a green piece of glass covering the eye. On the piece of glass is a red triangle with a circle around it, likely resembling the last key of Atlantis, next to some kind of vertical scale or chart. Therefore, the eyepiece could be a heads-up display showing the main target of the respective mission. Brains' Atlantis clothing is also similar to that of all the other divers during the theme's second year.
Brains initiated the Power Miners operation, and acquired the self-motivated directive to bring a Rock Monster to the surface to be studied. He always drove a vehicle or machine that somehow was able to capture a monster. The vehicles used for digging and mining were driven by the other miners. He obtained his nickname, "Brains," from Rex when they first met. When the Power Miners disbanded after completing their mission in 2010, he joined the Atlantis Expedition crew, which lasted for another year. In the Atlantis theme, he operated only one vehicle, the Deep Sea Raider. He was the scientist of both crews.
