Norman Bruett is a character from The Stand. He was a former employee of the paper factory in Arnette, Texas before the place went under in the 1980s. He was the husband of Lila and the father of Luke and Bobby.
Norm was a violent, aggressive and rather angry person, and was torn between a dull, pounding fury and heartbreak whenever he saw his children, the latter emotion being because of the pitiful clothing they wore and the former because of their perceived misbehaviour.
His heavy build masked a frail constitution. When his group was evacuated from Arnette, he was the only one with severe superflu symptoms.
