Cowboy Bebop Wiki

Ruth was a pirate and hacker.

In 2071, he was part of a team, along with Herman and George, that used a trucking ship to approach other ships. The ship had a grappling cable that could shoot and target another ship's computer systems. His team used that to disable ships and the trucking ship opened up to capture them. They would then sell the items off discretely. He was pursued by the Bebop and, though able to disable it, the Red Tail and the Swordfish II, the crew used the same virus against their ship, rendering it immobilized and it eventually exploded, killing them.[1]


George, Herman, and Ruth get their names from the American professional baseball player George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr.
