Origins[]

Ruprecht is named after Knecht Ruprecht from German Christmas folklore. Ruprecht is the companion and adopted son of St. Nicholas who like Krampus serves as his dark-side. Ruprecht threatens to attack and kidnap naughty children and carries around a staff and bag of ashes to do so. Ruprecht walks with a limp due to childhood injury, rides on a pale horse and is often accompanied by fairies and hags. While serving as St. Nicholas man-servant, he tends to embody all of the amoral aspects of the character.
