Runge is a cunning thief, seasoned pilot, expert huntsman, and ladies' man. Earlier in his life, he was a soldier of an unspecified army unit on the planet of Ahjri. He wasn't a particularly decorated soldier, reaching the rank of corporal before ending his term at the age of 18 so he could enter the field of bounty hunter and mercenary work.
During his time as a soldier, he was present during the War of Ninth Sanctuary between two nations: the F'mowne Republic and the Principality of Pykoih. He has various scars as a result, but they are hidden beneath his fur.
Runge is jovial and determined, but also arrogant and indulgent. His lustful nature and affinity for narcotics and alcohol often throw a wrench in an otherwise well-oiled system, earning him the ire of his counterpart, Ramy Dusotes. He has some semblance of decency for the most part, but that restraint is prone to being thrown out the proverbial window when he visits one of Riesel's many clubs, such as Night Life over Riesel.
Runge's default demeanor is one of relative silence, but he tends to make jokes about almost anything when he sees the opportunity, including rather morbid ones. He has a propensity for holding grudges, even for things as trivial as Ramy finishing off the last container of his favorite ice cream without giving him notice. He doesn't usually let his anger get the best of him unless someone pushes his buttons just right, the skill of which Ramy has mastered with all kinds of awards.
For music, Runge enjoys hard club tunes, including those that many people would dismiss as contorted noise. He is also fond of dark and edgy music.

Regarding the opposite sex, he is considerably shallow and keeps his standards within a narrow range, showing strong favoritism for chiseled athleticism and slenderness. This creates contention with Ramy, whose bulky figure invariably falls short of a supermodel's physique. In addition to this, he sees her as unfeminine and cold, and regards her as more of an annoying sister than anything. Even considering the idea of a relationship with her beyond a platonic friendship repulses him immensely.
He has a small circle of drinking buddies that he hangs out with on occasion, leaving Ramy alone at the base. She considers this to be a form of personal relief, almost like a miniature vacation.
Like his partner, he enjoys dessert foods such as ice cream, particularly muobimo-flavored (which could be likened in taste to pistachio, watermelon, and cherry).
He collects swords and shields, keeping many of them displayed in the base's living room.
Runge is proficient in hand-to-hand fighting, specializing in brute power to overwhelm his opponents, but this comes after he has properly gauged the risks of engagement. Oftentimes, his form consists of bombarding them with a flurry of fists directed at any known or perceived weakpoints. He hits like a truck, but lacks in footwork.
He is a combat pragmatist and is not beyond using dirty and other morally questionable techniques and strategies to succeed in a battle. Brutality is certainly not outside of his capacity, and he is not afraid to bust skulls and break or remove limbs. He makes extensive use of guns, particularly ones with a large amount of power, and has extensive self-training with a sniper rifle.
Runge is of the Sirukti species, which have been likened to bipedal dingoes according to the opinions of Humans. He is covered with a short coat of blue fur (cerulean, to be specific), stands at 6'4", and is 260 pounds of well-built muscle. He has blue eyes and messy, medium-length hair on his head that is a darker shade of blue than his fur. He is very muscular, obsessed with keeping himself in peak physical condition both for practical purposes and for seducing the opposite sex.
