fraternal (adjective) fra-TERN-ul



Brotherly.

And then there was added, with all that horrible irony which Voltaire began, a scene in which a great statesman made a speech over their bodies, saying that they were all heroes and had died in a fraternal embrace.

G. K. Chesterton, All Things Considered. Amazon

Among the grotesque personages sculptured on the wall, there was one to whom he was particularly attached, and with which he often seemed to exchange fraternal glances.

Victor Hugo, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Amazon

Proper politics have nothing on football politics when it comes to fraternal treachery.

Lawrence Donegan, The Guardian, 1 November 2007.

The unconditional rage and blood lust have abated, giving way to a fine breed of passive-aggressiveness that, to the naked eye, might even look like fraternal harmony.

David Was, The New York Times, 19 October 2007. New York Times
