Rufus is a werewolf who runs the Rufus's Meat Emporium in Canifis. He is a werewolf, but is non-attackable since he runs a store.
Rufus is well liked by Roavar, as he helps the village survive by bringing in meat. He is also a very good hunter, as despite his old age, he can still show the young werewolves that he has not lost his touch. Like all werewolves, Rufus likes raw meat as the taste "comes from the blood" and cooking it would "kill" it.
Rufus is the supplier of meat for Pet Shops. As the pet shops are in lands too far (and dangerous) to reach, Rufus will send the orders to his customers as long as it is fresh, as anything otherwise would slander his reputation. The player takes advantage of this during The Great Brain Robbery using the ring of charos to trick him into believing that they are sending a shipment of fresh cats to some werewolves in Mos Le'Harmless.
