History: (Excalibur I#97 (fb) - BTS) - Nicholas Rutledge's family served the London branch of the Hellfire Club for generations and he too became a manservant for the Club's Inner Circle, at one point befriending Sir James Braddock, Sr. and coming to think of James as one of his favorite people at the Club.
(Excalibur I#97) - When Brian Braddock visited the
Hellfire Club, Nicholas Rutledge greeted him and asked if he could be
of any assistance. Braddock replied in the affirmative and expressed
his demands for an audience with the Hellfire Club's Inner Circle,
explaining that it was his right as son of former Club member James
Braddock, and Rutledge introduced himself, bidding Braddock to follow
him. As Rutledge led him towards the Inner Circle, he revealed how he
had known James Braddock and his family history of having a
photographic memory. Admitting that his family had served the Hellfire
Club for generations, Rutledge brought Braddock to the Inner Circle's
door and wished him well, further commenting that James Braddock was
one of his favorite people at the Club. When Rutledge then wished
Braddock good luck, Braddock thanked him and hoped that they would talk
