Ruffington was pursued by a detective of the New York City Police Department, because he had been involved in illegal arms deals. Before the detective could secure tangible evidence, Ruffington used his influence to have his adversary reassigned to the archives, and have his reputation destroyed. This embittered the detective so much that he turned to vigilantism; as the masked crime fighter Nobody continued to hunt Ruffington.
Ruffington then one night made a deal to sell modified Triceraton cannons to Hun (and thus indirectly the Shredder) but had a run in with Nobody. With the help of Leonardo and Michelangelo, Nobody caught him and got him shipped off to prison.
Ruffington was put into jail but somehow managed to get out and in "Dragons Rising" he informs Hun that Neo-Tech will be delivering a new shipment of goods that night and demands his standard cut. He makes weapons which makes him dangerous.

- The character is an expansion of a corrupt weapons manufacturer from the Mirage continuity, Ruffington Arms. There was no specific character named Ruffington, and it was the company as a whole that Nobody opposed.
