"A member in good standing, Bud Hellar craves the affection of management and is a bootlicker from way back. If you want to know what your team thinks of you, Bud’s your man. As a loyal defender of the “big guy,” he has spent years fighting for the freedom of corporate logos." - Jagged Alliance, A.I.M. Dossier

"Lieutenant Bud Hellar has held a series of jobs since leaving A.I.M., from working as Rush Limbaugh's personal bodyguard to parking cars at the pentagon.  His departure from the organization was amicable, and he shall be remembered for his steadfast dedication and loyalty.  Recent reports have him working as a security consultant for the tobacco lobby.  While entirely within character, this information has not been verified." - Jagged Alliance 2, Alumni Gallery
