Rufus was found as a pup by the halfling Viggo Blackbriar. The two were inseparable from that point forward. Rufus seemed like a normal if particularly perceptive dog until he came into contact with the artifact called the Totemrix. Since that fateful moment, Rufus has been a changed dog . . .
Rufus died in combat, fighting a horde of gargoyles, though the immediate cause of death was a fireball from Titus Oberigo.
