Richard is a man of different sides, as the Hero of Brightwall he is a fearless warrior ever ready to charge the enemy be they Logan's Elite Guard, the Balverines or hordes of the Hollow men. At the same time however he appears to have certain expectations of others when it comes to battle. When some rebels attempted to flee the battle of Bowerstone he executed them for their cowardice. As a businessman he invested a small fortune into the Crown to help keep the promises he and the other Heroes made to the various leaders that supported them and to fund an army to protect Albion from the Crawler. At the same time he has aggressive expanded his business empire and has been rather ruthless in dealing with those that have been unable to repay a loan. He has used his wealth to build up the economy of Brightwall and even smothered out competition, leaving them forced to allow him to buy them out cheaply or face ruin. His particularly ruthless business actions are reserved for businesses he acquires outside Brightwall however. Backstory:
Richard's father was a Blacksmith in Brightwall, his mother was originally from Oakfield. It was unknown to Richard for most of his life, but through his mother he descends from the Hero of Oakvale which is the source of his Heroic blood. When the Hero of Bowerstone arrived in Brightwall, Richard was entirely unaware of his destiny but was already a renowned business man, owning several stalls in the marketplace and the 'Ye Quill & Quandry' tavern. It was under the Academy in the Reliquary that Richard discovered he was a Hero and unlocked the power flowing in his veins. He acquired the hammer 'Godbreaker' and traveled with Sir Walter Beck and the other Heroes.
As they traveled through Albion (and when he wasn't breaking the backs of his foes with his hammer!) Richard kept an eye out for opportunities to increase his cash flow, knowing a rebellion would be expensive business and they needed all the assistance they could get. Eventually they reached Bowerstone and met Page. The group spent time winning over the hearts of the people and Richard did just the same, donating coin to the poor and performing tasks for others to make their lives easier. Eventually the Heroes saw their ally Major Swift executed by Logan's Elite Guard and knew they had to move fast. Swift's last piece of aide led the party to Aurora, where they discovered the threat of The Crawler and met Kalin, the leader of a community Logan had hid the existence of. When the group returned from Aurora the time had come to launch their attack on Bowerstone.
While Page led the rebels up the western path and Sabine led his Dweller's up the eastern path, Richard was in the group that charged the center. With Godbreaker in hand he smashed aside dozens of Logan's Elite Guard. During the last push against the Castle, Richard saw several rebel soldiers losing heart, drop their weapons and try flee the fighting, he pulled out his pistol and shot them all down. It was not a popular move. Regardless the battle was won and Logan was arrested. The Hero of Bowerstone was crowned and a new era had begone for Albion, an era that started under the shadow of the Crawler. Immediately after the fighting Richard used the confused and panic to his benefit, performing a massive land grab and acquiring great amounts of property.
With the Hero of Bowerstone on the throne Richard returned to Brightwall, his actions during the war had made him a hero to many but especially in his home. He was elected Mayor and has held the position ever since. During he year leading up to the Crawler's attack Richard continued as a loyal ally to the Monarch. There were hard decisions to be made and many of the promises that were kept were aided by his financial contributions to the Royal Treasury. When the Crawler eventually attacked, Richard did what he always did when the Heroes needed to fight. He took up Godbreaker and started fighting. The day was won and the Crawler was killed, if so too was Sir Walter Beck, a loss felt by all. Thought the group had done their best to protect Albion, of the six and a half million people that made up the population of Albion half a million were dead. The treasury was exhausted and the monsters and creatures that inhabited the dark places of Albion had grown confident while the Heroes had focused on the threat of the Crawler. Now there is more work to do and Richard is ready to provide his advice, his hammer and if needs be loan the Crown his coin.
