Count Rugen

Background/History: Count Rugen is Prince Humperdink's confidant and close associate. He is an evil man, self-centered, ruthless, and currently engaged in writing the "...definitive work on pain."

Personality/Motivation: Rugen is a less than a pleasant person. At one point he describes himself as having a considerable temper and a murderous wrath. He certainly isn't someone to be trifled with.

Quote: "I am writing the definitive history of pain..."

Powers/Tactics: Rugen is an expert at torture and the application of pain. He is also a capable inventor, and spent 11 years perfecting “The Machine,” a huge suction-pump device that draws life out of a body. Simulating this is probably best handled through a Body Drain with an extended recovery period (say centuries?). It takes about a minute to drain 1d6 of Body, and the subject needs to be strapped down. Naturally The Machine is an Immobile Focus.

Appearance: Count Rugen is probably in his late thirties, and is described as "... a big man, with black hair and black eyes and great shoulders and a black cape and gloves." And, of course, he has six fingers on his right hand.
