Dead Man's Company
Along with Burne, Rufus came to Hommlet a few years ago after successful adventuring careers (including the slaying of a green dragon some leagues away). He is quite popular in town and can be frequently seen at the Inn of the Welcome Wench.
Though he is quite capable of defending himself (Rufus is an experienced fighter), he relies on his retinue of loyal guards unless his talents are sorely needed.
He and Burne decline any invitations to join the PCs on any adventures, though sees the PCs as useful allies to root out any evil agents within Hommlet.
