Rufus is African American and 43. He was homeless before the initial zombie outbreak, and now that humanity has fallen he has the necessary survival skills and is able to adapt to this post-apocalyptic life.
Rufus is a hardcore drug addict, and if he goes 2 real life hours without diazepam, opiates, or alcohol he will start going through withdrawals. Rufus is friendly and has a good head on his shoulders, but is often betrayed due to him trusting others too easily. His ultimate goal is to team up with people who won't judge him for his addiction, and harbor a community that can help sustain his lifestyle.
