    Land of the Dead (2005)Edit

    Kaufman ruled all of the Pittsburgh-outpost from a large building called "Fiddler's Green" where the wealthy stayed in the lap of luxury and protection while the poor lived in slums and were their own protection. He turned all of the city into a safe zone for the people however, payed for training for their soldiers and even got many off the streets as he puts it "By giving them games and devices"; apparently costing him a great deal of money and he compared the spending to "Responsibility".

    After a recent rounding up of supplies from a nearby town; Cholo DeMora was looking to get payed and call his tab after all his work and maybe even get a place among the wealthy; however Kaufman wanted him to remain where he was and after a disagreement; Kaufman wanted his men to kill Cholo. Cholo escaped and took the all but invincible zombie killing truck known as Dead Reckoning and held it for a $5,000,000 dollar ransom; which if not payed, Cholo planned to level Fiddler's Green.

    Kaufman then sent Cholo's former superior officer Riley Denbo, as well as Riley's buddy Charlie Houk and a prostitute named Slack after the stolen vehicle. He also sent along a couple more soldiers named Motown, Manolete and Pillsbury. He wanted to preserve Fiddler's Green and in exchange for Cholo's Death, Kaufman promised Riley a car and supplies to leave the town.

    Later on however after learning about the zombies being too close to entering the city; Kaufman actually decided to leave Fiddler's Green with large duffle bags of money and was being escorted when the zombies invaded Fiddler's Green. He ran to his limo where he was attacked by Dig Daddy. After Dig Daddy left; Kaufman went out to reload his weapon and protect his money. Cholo attacked him now as a zombie and they struggled until Big Daddy returned with a lit propane tank; causing the gasoline on the floor to ignite and explode; leading to Kaufman's demise.
