Rat Bastard was one of the new breed of Vicious Circle members that was brought into the group when SkullFace reformed them. He was dispatched to eliminate Cutthroat when Cutthroat failed to eliminate the Dragon. Cutthroat was saved from Rat Bastard by his own intended victim, Dragon, who knocked Rat Bastard out with a single punch.
When OverLord III was developing his Dragon Army, Rat Bastard was chosen as a candidate to receive a transfusion of Dragon’s stolen blood to augment his existing abilities. Unfortunately for this newly developed Dragon Army, Dragon had reverted back to his original Emperor Kurr persona and saw their existence as an insult. Kurr proceeded to eliminate all of those injected with his blood, using the unwilling accomplice of R. Richard Richards and his new Dragon-Slayer as a weapon against his victims.
