UpstartEditWhen we first meet Rodolfo, he is not yet lord of Sadal Suud, instead, he is simply a greedy social climber who hopes to secure rulership by allowing Baelheit to pro Machinate his nation. His only request from Heughes is a large sum of money.
Before it can begin however, he has a crisis of concience and backs out of the deal. By doing so he redeems himself by remaining loyal to his people. He wishes Milly and Sagi goodbye before they head off to their honeymoon in Mira. When he returns to his country he secures rulership for himself.
