NoImage Alert.png Judging from the current state of this page, there is no available image on the Overlord Fandom as of yet to help emphasize its appearance. Since it is lacking visuals, this article requires an image for the first time, the kind which should be high quality and distinguishable. Unknown Intruder, you could go out of your way to assist the Overlord Wiki by adding an image that came from any Overlord adaptation to it. It cannot be a fan-art or fan-made. You must upload the official ones visually drawn by the main producers of the light novel, manga and anime adaptations.

Rufus (ルフス) is an undead that appears to be a superior for the Black Scripture.


No information on his appearance is given.


Not much is known about Rufus's personality, though those that are familiar with Rufus seem to respect him.


Not much is known about him, except he is a type of undead and is supposedly of a rank that is even higher than the Black Scripture members. It has also been made clear that his existence is not suppose to be known by outsiders.


The Ruler of Conspiracy Arc[]

During a meeting with the highest ranking members of the Slane Theocracy, they wondered if Ainz Ooal Gown was perhaps Surshana reborn. Though they immediately dismissed the idea as the god was killed by the Eight Greed Kings. Even so if he had been resurrected, they were certain that a specific follower of their god would have informed them about it beforehand.[1]

The Witch of the Falling Kingdom Arc[]

Azuth Aindra mentioned his name during his meeting with members of the Black Scripture. The leading representative was not familiar with the name. However after Azuth disclosed that Rufus identity was an undead and a patron of the Black Scripture, did the other members become tense and hostile towards the former. However the representative managed to restrain his fellows from any further rash action and quickly departed from the inn.[2]

Abilities and Powers[]

As an undead, he should have the standard abilities as other undead types, the lack of need to sleep, eat or tire, immunity to slash attacks and to heal from negative energy.


Black Scripture[]

Although unconfirmed, its been implied by Azuth Aindra from the information he obtained from the Platinum Dragon Lord that Rufus is a direct superior to the Black Scripture and that he has maintained this position for a long time due to his undead status and has overseen countless generations of the Scripture since the Slane Theocracy's early history as a nation. This in turn would imply that he is also the current superior to the current members of the Scripture, but his exact role and position among them still has not been revealed.

So far the 5th Seat of the Scripture, Quaiesse is shown to be aware of his existence and respects him, however he appears to only know him professionally.

While the 10th through 12th seats of the Scripture is shown to hold him in high esteem and respects him as their superior. As seen where all three took serious, potentially murderous offense at Azuth Aindra's insults towards him and nearly slaughtered him together with Blue Roses in order to protect Rufus from having the information of his existence from being leaked out.

Platinum Dragon Lord[]

Their exact relationship is unknown, but the Platinum Dragon Lord is shown to be aware of his existence as an undead and is currently known to hold some sort of critical intel on him that could potentially endanger the Slane Theocracy.


  • It is possible he is the fore-mentioned first follower of Surshana since he is an undead and his first follower is still alive after six hundred years.
  • Rufus is a boy's name of Latin origin meaning "red-head."
