Runciter was the owner of Runciter's (Live) Animals pet store.
Despite his claims of selling real animals, LAPD examinations showed half of his animals, including his 'prized white tiger' were, in fact, artificial ones. He was also guilty of laundering money for corrupt city servants and criminal organizations.
He also attempted to sexually exploit his underaged assistant Lucy Devlin, an attempt that was interrupted by a raid perpetrated by Clovis and Sadik. Runciter was beaten, and all his animals were killed. LAPD Blade Runner Ray McCoy was dispatched to the crime scene to investigate. Runciter presented himself to the police as an innocent and unfortunate victim, lamenting over his loss.
As a fugitive, McCoy revisited Runciter's, confronted him with evidence, and possibly decided to have him killed.
