When Rufus was about 17 years old, he was invited to a falconry competition in Heimdallr by Baron Teo Schwarzer, who taught the younger Rufus much about the practice and its etiquette. Despite their differences in political standings, Heimdallr Governor Carl Regnitz has also provided Rufus with advice numerous times.
On behalf of his father, Rufus deals with business both within the Kreuzen Province managed by his father as well as negotiating and coordinating with the rulers of other provinces. Citizens of Bareahard hold great pride in Rufus, whose abilities on his age are rivalled only by Prince Olivert Reise Arnor. Both are said to dominate high society conversations.
Erebonian Civil War
During the Erebonian Civil War, Rufus served as the chief of staff of the Noble Alliance. His reputation as a genius military strategist, who is said to hold nothing back in battle, served Duke Cayenne, leader of the Noble Alliance, to the utmost of his abilities.
On 31 December S.1204, Rufus reveals himself as the primary member of the Ironblood. He then worked to lower the power of the Noble Alliance from the inside.
After Erebonia successfully took control of Crossbell, Giliath Osborne placed him as the Governor-General of Crossbell.
Rufus Albarea is a hard person to define and a even harder person to define his true alliances. While he maintains a always calm persona, it is hard to see what he thinks or whether he is being honest at times.
He seems to care for his younger brother, Jusis Albarea and his father, the former Duke Albarea, but even that is unsure. Rufus can therefore be defined as someone who holds his cards close to his chest.
He is an expert at court-style dueling.
