Full Name: Drufus Aurelius Tauterus.
Appearances: Issues #2-6, 8.
Sirius IV's young prince was sent to Zot's Earth to find the stolen key to the "Doorway at the Edge of the Universe" but was thwarted repeatedly in his half-hearted attempts to play the hero.
Though introduced as a clueless buffoon in issue #2, Drufus' personality deepened as readers learned more about his troubled upbringing, and as they watched the maneuvers of a political conspiracy drag him into a tragic confrontation with Vic Taylor on his homeworld's vast desert plains.
Drufus' favorite hobbies were checkers, badminton and woodworking -- none of which he was allowed to do past the age of nine.
