Nothing is known of Ratbane's origins. At some point before being forced to join The Destruction Horde, he was trained in the art of the assassin, and passed on this knowledge to his daughter. Once in the horde, Redfang's skills got him the attention of Redfang, the current cheiftain; he was promoted to captain.
Ratbane's daughter Darktail hated him, and the feeling was mutual; he savagely beat her, sometimes within an inch of her life. For a time, they worked together as double agents between Redfang and a hopeful successor named Gree Doomblade; however, Darktail was firmly on Gree's side, and started to report lies to keep her father happy. Ratbane was foolish enough to believe the lies, and report them; unfortunately, the bad information caused Redfang to start beating Ratbane for incompetene. Ratbane transferred his frustration to his daughter, and continued to beat Darktail with little provocation, until she finally had enough. She and her companions Bagnose and Stunty conspired to kill Ratbane; they stabbed him, then clawed him so it would look as if he was one of the many victims of the insane weasel Skrugg.
