Tales: Rudy doesn't tell anyone much of his past...he usually keeps it a secret. Rudy is an orphan who never really knew his parents. He was never adopted but never gave up. He worked hard to get to where he is today.

Now, he comes across as a reserved, well spoken and educated man of wealth and power. The problem is that he has lost all of his money (except for what he has with him). He couldn't stand the thought of disappointing Turtledove (Mrs. Moneybanks), so he arrange for the SS Goldfish to have an accident. He wasn't expecting anyone to survive.

She went on the fateful trip aboard the SS Goldfish because she heard that Mr. Rudy Moneybags was looking to finance a movie (and she wanted the starring role). However, he has so far been resistant to the notion.
