(Conan the Barbarian I#48/2 (fb) - BTS) - Hunwolf met Sigfal, a friend of Red Sonja. Hunwolf noticed Sigfal's golden earring and grappled with him to take possession of the jewel.  Using a hidden knife in the boot, Hunwolf used deception and killed Sigfal, and then took the earring.

    A few days after the murder, Hunwolf passed through the Dark Forest and was captured in a giant web. Some henchmen of the mad wizard, Vincentius, freed him from the web before the giant spider ate him. Hunwolf was kept prisoner for some weeks as he was to be sacrificed to Vincentius' gods. 

(Conan the Barbarian I#48/2) - When the time for the sacrifice was near, a Hyrkanian warrior woman was brought into the chamber of sacrifices. Vincentius tried to stab her with his knife, but the red-haired she-devil managed to free herself and kill the sorcerer instead. Hunwolf was freed, too. The wizard's Kushite henchmen arrived but Hunwolf didn't give them the chance to flee or surrender; he immediately slew one of them, forcing Red Sonja to kill the other one. After the danger had passed, Hunwolf proposed to Sonja to enjoy the pleasures deriving from his wealth, and showed her the golden earring. Sonja claimed that she knew the owner of that jewel. Hunwolf approached Sonja with the purpose to grab the wizard's knife and use it against Sonja, but the red Hyrkanian was faster and killed him.
