Facts

Known to Most

  • CEO of Raytech Industries, a tech innovation company with a branch office in the New York Safe Zone.
  • Has three siblings, who make up the rest of the Board of Directors.

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.
  • He isn't a blood sibling to the other Rays - Edward was his adoptive father, apparently, but he grew up in a NYC Catholic orphanage. Ed was never the best parental figure.
  • Richard used to be Evolved, but his ability was lost on November 8th, 2011 during the Mount Nazahat mission.
  • Collects prophetic and precognitive art in all its forms; music, paintings, comic books, et cetera. Even if the prophecy's played out, or been negated, he'll still collect it.

Known to Few

  • Used to run a group that could be considered terrorists, freedom fighters, or conspirators that worked against the Institute and the Humanis-backed government known as Endgame.
  • Has a record! Did a stint in Rikers.

Known to Very Few

  • Another iteration of himself from another timeline was the founder of the Institute, a man who caused atrocities on a massive scale.
  • He, himself, was not born in this timeline at all, but was brought over during the initial overlay event when Michelle activated the Looking Glass for the first time.

Hooks

  • 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!

Relationships

Adopted Family
edward_icon.gif Benefactor. Employer. Monster. He was supposed to raise me as his own. He didn't. The feelings that I have about him are complicated… and it doesn't seem likely that I'll ever get closure. Assuming he's really dead. I won't believe it until I see a body.
harmony_icon.gif The mother of my children, and a dear friend. We never really had anything romantic - unfortunately - but that one night stand changed both our lives.
kaylee_icon.gif Sister. I'm probably the closest to her of his adoptive family, thanks to everything we've both been through - I love and trust her implicitly.
valerie_icon.gif My baby sister. I'm very protective of her, and… the injuries she suffered on November 8th, 2011 are my fault. I'm determined to find a way to heal her, but— I'm also very proud of how she's dealt with the cards she's been dealt; her optimism, seemingly eternal, is a source of wonder.
warren_icon.gif Sigh. I'm often exasperated by the antics of my not-entirely-sane adoptive brother, but in the end Warren's family, and that's important to me.
jared_icon.gif Elisabeth's father has become a de facto member of the family over the years, a voice of wisdom and advice that I - may not always listen to, but always values.
Biological Family
ff_chel_icon.gif My mother broke the universe, once.
dave_icon.gif The man that I always thought was my father, and thought was dead. It turns out that I'm wrong on both sides — a David Cardinal was my father, but not this one. He doesn't want anything to do with me. That's… that's okay. I'll respect his wishes. He's been through enough…
lilir_icon.gif rickyr_icon.gif My children. The greatest joy of my life.

Kitten

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

Richelieu is a good kitty.

One Republic - Start Again
Can't I just turn back the clock?
Forgive my sins
I just wanna roll my sleeves up
And start again
I know that I messed it up
Time and time again
I just wanna roll my sleeves up
And start again
I was switchin' up the lanes
Steppin' out the frame I'm in
I was pulling on the reins
Sick of all the same happenin'
I swear I was looking for disaster
Mixed with a bottle of gin
And just because I come home after
Doesn't mean you'll take me in
You see my world is spinning like there's nothing to know
You see my world is feeling like it just might explode
And yes I know it's hard to take it backwards from my mind
I need to get a ride, need to see some light come in
Can't I just turn back the clock?
Forgive my sins
I just wanna roll my sleeves up
And start again
I know that I messed it up
Time and time again
I just wanna roll my sleeves up
And start again
Feelin' like maybe I'm unappreciated
Like my presence in your life has been alleviated
I feel like everything I've done before is different now
But I can see clearer than ever from a distance now
Every day I do it, I been goin' through it
But you never knew it 'cause I never showed you
You gave me the world, so I feel I owed you
I been lookin' through the mirror and that's the old you
I'ma get it right now, don't know how
But I promise that we're gonna make it somehow
I'm all in, it's from the heart again
Open up your mind and maybe we could start again
Can't I just turn back the clock?
Forgive my sins
I just wanna roll my sleeves up
And start again
I know that I messed it up
Time and time again
I just wanna roll my sleeves up
And start again
Oh
Oh
And yes I know it's hard to take it backwards from my mind
I need to get a ride, need to see some light come in
Can't I just turn back the clock?
Forgive my sins
I just wanna roll my sleeves up
And start again
