Rufus' father was a very famous and skilled Bounty Hunter, but due to an incident, he left for the material world never to return.
Though he resented his father for abandoning him, Rufus had long aspired to be like him, so he decided to follow in his father's footsteps to become a Bounty Hunter. As one of the Haros tribe, Rufus was the guardian and watcher of the Underworld. He had the authority and responsibility to watch over the souls trapped in Underworld, along with bringing them back if they escaped.
When Rufus became an adult, he gained a reputation for his exceptional skills as a Bounty Hunter. One day while chasing after a wicked soul into the material world, he sensed a blue flame that felt very similar to his father's and decided to search for it.

"Traitor! You will regret quitting our band!"
"That will not happen."
"So arrogant! Get out of here!"
The news that Rufus left the Berkas Band spread quickly. The rumor said that he got kicked out of the Berkas Band for behaving poorly when in reality, he quit the band himself. He didn't have to find out where the rumor started.
Berkas was blaming everything on Rufus who wasn't part of the band anymore.
He wasn't mad. He was expecting it. Rufus did not care about the rumors and focused on finding a new band. Many bands offered a sport as the questing Singer, and many people who were starting a new band were interested in Rufus. But...
"Oh, didn't I tell you? I decided to become a Singer for a different band. I'll make a new band next time."
"I'm sorry I didn't tell you earlier. I'll call you next time. I'm sorry!"
But when he tried to meet them in person and get things done, all the plans got canceled. He could tell from their behaviors that they were getting pressured. Berkas Band was pressuring everyone that had a relationship with Rufus. It looked like Berkas Band wanted to kick Rufus off the stage forever.
"I can't believe they would do this..."
Rufus was not discouraged. But he had to think about how he was going to act from now on. He walked the streets while thinking. At that time, an unknown noise entered his ears and interrupted his thoughts.
"Squid without a conscience! A face I don't want to see! Lower your head, lower your head, woo!"
"Lower your head, lower your head, woo!"
A band was performing on the street. It was a band with a Bassist, Guitarist, and a Pianist. Their performance was awful. The Bassist was a beginner, and the Pianist was playing professionally like a classical pianist. She didn't know the tricks.
But in this chaos, the Guitarist was perfect. It wasn't a surprise because Ryan is very famous for playing the guitar. But, it was also Ryan who was singing horribly. Rufus approached Ryan who was smiling after finishing a song.
"Didn't I tell you not to sing before?"
"Oh! Who is this? It's Berkas Band's singer, Rufus?"
Rufus smiled bitterly to Ryan's greeting. Ryan was good at playing the guitar but didn't have any connection to rumors. It seemed like he didn't hear any news about Rufus leaving the band.
"You're very late. I left Berkas."
"Really? Did you move to a new band?"
"I don't have a band in mind. But I'm planning on moving to a new band."
"Good! Why don't you perform with us before you find your new team?"
"You want me to become a part of this amateur band?"
"Was that a rude offer to a professional Singer? Well then, I'll sing!"
"Wait a minute. Is there no other way?"
"Huh? What do you mean? You don't want to listen to me sing?"
"How many times do I have to tell you? Grab the instrument and not the microphone."
Rufus pushed Ryan and stood his spot. The audience cheered at seeing the Singer join on the spot. It's been a while since Rufus received audiences' cheers. Although it wasn't a fancy stage, it wasn't bad to sing in front of the audience with them.
"I'll sing this one time."
Demon World's Great Pirate — First Story
The Demon World was always the one invading and never the ones being invaded. While the Demon World was at peace, the demon sea was not and it was called the Golden Sea for a reason.
There were those fighting for control of the demon sea and that's how the golden era of pirates started in the Demon World. The demon sea became dangerous mostly due to two great pirates.
If you wanted to call yourself a pirate, you had to belong to one of the two great pirates crews, however, some always try to go against the current and those were the Salvagers.
"News flash! The Hardliners warship sank!"
"The Hardliners giant warship sank? Was it one of the two great pirates?"
"Who cares who did it? Let's go! If we don't hurry, we won't be able to salvage anything! Set sail!"
All the individual Salvagers readied their boat to find the wreckage of the warship. The sea was already swarming with the navy and pirates. As they were fighting amongst themselves the sea was quickly filling up with wreckage. The Salvagers were the ones sailing around the sea for wreckage and to them, this was a perfect opportunity.
The Salvagers were following the seagulls to the wreckage and two different Salvagers came to a quick agreement.
"A giant warship is more than big enough for both of us to get our fair share."
"There's no point in fighting with each other when there are more Salvagers headed this way."
"I agree, let's split this 50/50."
"Agreed. All right, let's get to work."
The two Salvagers worked together to gather the remains of the giant warship and when they were finally able to pull the giant warship out of the water. When they reviewed the remains of the warship, they were left speechless.
"I-Is this a ship? What happened to it?"
The warship didn't look much like a ship anymore, it looked as though it was picked clear off like a filleted fish.
There was nothing left of it, anything that could have been worth anything was already ripped off the warship. When this thought hit them, they realized there was only one being that was capable of this.
"T-The King of Greed! This must have been him!"
"Damn it! It wasn't the pirates? Run!"
The Salvagers scrambled to get out of the scene but they were already too late as the King of Greed was already closing in on the Salvagers. A pirate ship blocked their path before they even began to pull their anchor up.
The King of Greed, Rufus of the Golden Ocean, was standing tall on his ship.
"Haha, I knew this would happen. All I used was a simple carcass yet there are scavengers already at the scene."
Rufus had an eyepatch on his right eye and his greed-filled left eye glared at the Salvagers. In his head, he was already counting the worth of their ships.
"A-Admiral, we will hand over all the gold we have, please just spare our lives!"
"Not, even your petty lives are worth something."
With a title like King of Greed, what came out of his mouth was expected.
One of the Salvagers panicked and shot his musket at Rufus. There was no way of telling it was calculated but it came at Rufus from the right, his blindside. However, Rufus simply swayed his head to dodge the bullet and before the Salvagers could react he bared his teeth.
『Bang! Bang! Bang!』
"Don't bother wasting your bullets, they're all money."
His crew members nodded at his remark and drew out their swords. Rufus nodded, satisfied from their quick reaction and grinned.
As Rufus grinned his crew started to board the Salvagers' ship. Even the lives of the Salvagers would be used as money.
Those who lost their lives from the pirates still had to face Rufus in the Underworld as he was also the Grim Reaper of the Underworld.
"If you want to enter the Underworld, you will have to pay a small fee. Although, I don't expect you to have anything."
The Salvagers are called the hyenas of the sea, but what do you call someone that pillages the hyenas and even uses their soul?
Two sets of pistols.
When Rufus first held this weapon, many Bounty Hunters around him laughed at him. Even though he hated his father so much, he ended up choosing the same weapon that his father used.
However, no one can laugh at him now. Rufus is more known than his father as a Bounty Hunter. Of course, Rufus took all kinds of bounty, whether it was for good or evil. As long as there was money, he got it done.
