FatherBackground and Personality:
Richard has a very dominant, Alpha personality. He is a natural leader and one to quickly assess a situation and take action. He learned a lot during his time in the military and perhaps suffers some form of PTSD, though its hard to figure out what triggers this. What is apparent is that he likes a regime - getting up at a specific time every day and following a specific order of doing things. He can get angry if such things get disrupted. Some would say he has a lot of testosterone and 'bounces off the walls' - this may be true, but he also likes his quiet time, often locking himself in his office for hours on end, with no disruptions.
Richard comes from a military family and was part of the boy scouts growing up, where he got his first love for the great outdoors and adventure. He was a star football player in highschool, where he really grew into his 6'2" frame and started to fill out. Colleges were interested, but he wasn't interested in college. Like his father, a former Ranger, Richard was more interested in the military and signed up upon graduation from High School. The discipline his father had instilled in him growing up paid off her, and Richard soon turned into a Man, excelling at every task set before him and taking a rather mature view on everything thrown his way.
He too went to Ranger Camp, like his father, and distinguished himself further, reaching the elite echelon of the Special Forces by the time he was 21. He has served several Tours of Duty (and perhaps several more actions he isn't allowed to discuss) and fondly remembers his time in the Military. He has since retired, married and has full grown children. The love for the Outdoors never left and has has constantly tried to take his family on camping trips (often lasting no more than the weekend) until finally this lust hurrah into the wilderness.Additional Information:
