Rudd was the best friend of Nate Quarter during his early years. Good-natured and cheerful, Rudd appreciated the simple things in life, a philosophy which Nate respected him for. While Nate was working in the Prade Phraxmine, Rudd looked out for him and did his best to keep others from giving Nate trouble.
During the events of The Immortals, Rudd and Nate were enjoying themselves at The Hulks when Mine Sergeant Grint Grayle tried to kill Nate. Rudd threw himself in the line of fire to protect his friend, and was fatally shot through the head with a phraxpistol.
