Cleverman tells the story of two indigenous half-brothers who join forces to battle an ancient mythological monster. In this not-too-distant dystopian future, an ancient species known as Hairypeople must live among humans and battle for survival in a world that wants to silence, exploit and destroy them. At the heart of the story are two estranged brothers, Koen and Waruu West, who are forced together to fight against terrifying enemies - both human and not of this world.
Rob Collins is an actor, known for the Australian drama, Cleverman.
Waruu is a self-appointed leader of men, an inspirational force; an altruistic figure who protects the vulnerable in an intolerant, volatile world. He is charismatic and intimidating. Status is important to him - it’s something he felt a lack of, growing up without a father. As much as he is driven to help his people, his "family", Waruu is also driven by ego. He truly believes that he can lead "his" people out of the darkness. And sometimes this focus on the greater good means that his own family gets left behind. He’s not quite as absent as his own father, but his eye is always on the bigger picture.
After his father died, Uncle Jimmy became Waruu’s father figure, and as Waruu learned the traditional ways and stories from Jimmy, he came to believe that the role of "Cleverman was his rightful destiny. He would keep his people, his ‘family" safe - something his father was unable to do.
