Not to be confused with Bud from Slimer!


Bud [1] is a New York-based insurance investigator and boyfriend of Kate. [2]

HistoryEdit

Bud is a well-off insurance investigator but has something of a jealous streak. During a party, this jealousy surfaced when Kate was innocently speaking with another man. Bud nearly had a brawl with another attendee of the party, Peter Venkman, but stormed off. While driving away, Bud was pursued by the Headless Horseman. Luckily, he made it to a bridge, the only known weakness of the entity. However, the Horseman blew up Bud's car before dissipating.

Lieutenant Frump, of the NYPD, suspected Venkman was the culprit. At the party, Venkman was attempting to sell year-round ghost protection policies and Bud's occupation is insurance investigation. Frump also noted Venkman had access to ghosts, through the Containment Unit. Venkman retraced Bud's route from the previous night and encountered the Headless Horseman, too. They met with Kate to find out the truth.
