Known to Some

  • Richard has a kid - two, even! They stay with their mother, and have her last name, but she brings them to see him fairly regularly.
  • Richard's surname was previously Cardinal, and he ran the Redbird Security Solutions company just before the war - rumor has it the HQ was hit by Humanis and he was severely injured, vanishing from public life until after the war.

  • Richard used to be Evolved, but his ability was lost on November 8th, 2011 during the Mount Nazahat mission.

  • Raytech:

Employment: Looking to help make the world a better place, and make money while doing it? Richard's always on the look-out for talented individuals who are a good fit for his team… even those who might have a checkered past they're looking to make up for. Maybe especially those people.

Employed: Do you work for Raytech? Built in hook for RP right there. BAM!

  • Personal

Old Friends, Old Enemies: Richard's got a very checkered past, and he's moved through a lot of circles; he's been a criminal, a security specialist, a CIA Agent, a resistance fighter, and now he's in the corporate world. He's got connections everywhere. The player is happy to work out past connections with you!

Collection: Are you a precog? Did you end up with some precognitive art? Richard will want to see it, and get a copy for his collection if he can strike a deal!

Information: If you're looking for information, well… Richard isn't in that business anymore, but he still knows an awful lot. You could look in worse places. He might also be interested in buying your information.

Everyman: Sometimes, Richard just likes to get away from that ivory tower and walk around the city, especially in parks and gardens and high places. If you frequent such places, maybe you could run into him!


edward_icon.gif Benefactor. Employer. Monster. He was supposed to raise Richard as his own. He didn't. The feelings that Richard has about this man are complicated… and it doesn't seem likely that he'll ever get closure. Assuming he's really dead. Richard won't fully believe it until he sees a body.
kaylee_icon.gif Sister. He's probably the closest to her of his adoptive family, thanks to everything they've both been through - he loves and trusts her implicitly.
valerie_icon.gif His baby sister. He's very protective of her, and still blames himself - illogically - for the damage she suffered on November 8th, 2011. He's determined to find a way to heal her. He's also very proud of how she's dealt with the cards she's been dealt; her optimism, seemingly eternal, is a source of wonder to him.
warren_icon.gif Sigh. Richard is often exasperated by the antics of his not-entirely-sane adoptive brother, but in the end Warren's family, and that's important to him.
jared_icon.gif Elisabeth's father has become a de facto member of his family over the years, a voice of wisdom and advice that he - may not always listen to, but always values.


This is Richelieu. Ingrid literally dropped him off at Raytech one day, and now Richard has a kitten. This has been a source of mild consternation and confusion for the man.

Richelieu is a good kitty.
