While very little is known about his past, nor his motivation for becoming a Vampire, the novelization describes Rigel as a diligent Death Dealer, ready with a digital camera, quickly taking surveillance shots of the Vampires' Lycan quarries.
Rigel is initially seen sitting atop a building, photographing two Lycans whom he intends to hunt and kill. After collecting the necessary amount of research, Rigel jumps several stories down, where he follows the Lycans into a subway station. He is accompanied by Selene and Nathaniel, two fellow Death Dealers. When Rigel steps out into the open, one of the Lycans, Raze, senses his presence and opens fire on him. Raze's fellow Lycan, Trix, is able to shoot and kill Rigel with the Lycans' newly aquired Ultraviolet ammunition, which releases irradiated fluid into Rigel's bloodstream, burning him alive from the inside out.
