(Blade: Vampire Hunter II#½ (fb) - BTS) - As a child Rutger and his friend Paulie were saved by Blade from the White Worm (see White Worm profile), but multiple White Worm's rose after the original was cut into pieces by Blade and they killed Paulie and Rutger's whole family. After that Rutger was raised by Blade and Mikado to become a vampire hunter. For years they hunted down vampires and whenever a White Worm was found by them it was killed by Bloodsbane to avenge his friends and family.

(Blade: Vampire Hunter II#½) - Bloodsbane went together with Blade and Mikado on another hunt. They killed several vampires and in the end Bloodsbane went after another White Worm. The White Worm pleaded for mercy, but Bloodsbane showed no mercy and burnt him.
