Physical Characteristics

Height: 5'11 Mass: 165 lbs.

Build and Skin Color: Richard's build is average, with averagely tan skin.

Facial Features and Eye Color: His face seems relatively young. Despite his age, his face could very well belong to a 12 year old. His green eyes shine brightly on his face.

Hair Color and Style: Has a chin strap beard, trimmed and well kept, meshing into his short, equally well kept brown hair. Both are kept short enough not to be much of a problem.

Distinguishing Features: Richard's entire left arm is cybernetic(He is also left handed), including a hand that can be unscrewed and replaced with several other hands he's had custom built, including a hypodermic needle, an auto-bone saw, and blender.

Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Richard is clumsy, gullible, naive, silly, and seems incapable of getting angry at people. When in battle, he rarely goes on the offensive, preferring to use his weapons to defend himself and his patients. If there is no one to treat(A rarity on a battle field, I know) he finds cover and will attempt to fire at the enemy, always apologizing loudly if he hits someone without killing them.

Likes: Smoothies, Cooking, Singing Dislikes: Alcohol, Fish Goals: To defend his homeland.

History

Family (or Creators)

Creator: Marcus Matthews

Pre-RP

Created by Marcus Matthews, a rather wealthy man who, due to an unfortunate accident involving an HHG and a rather loud night of drinking, was unable of having kids of his own, it was believed that during the cloning process something had gone wrong, because though he grew into the splitting image of Marcus, his personality was almost a polar opposite. Marcus had always been a serious, no nonsense personality, were as Richard was silly, naive, and almost crazy at times. Being cloned, but released as a baby of about 6 months, Richard grew up living in the Upper City, so that he was kept away from what Marcus referred to as “The Riff-Raff of this planet”. Richard never saw any combat growing up, but always felt a surprising amount of loyalty to his home, despite Marcus having often said “This planet is going to Hell in a hand basket”. When he became old enough, Richard left his father to join 'The Greens' and make his mark for his home. Believing that he, alone, would not be able to do enough for his planet, he had his left arm replaced with cybernetics, with a hand specifically designed to be removed and replaced with modified tools. Once he received it, he began his journey to do all that he can for the planet he loved.

Skills

Communication

Richard can handle using most communication technology, and understands and speaks Nepleslian fluently, and can write it(in a quite beautiful hand, I might add) and read it just as well. Hand signals are easily understood, and he can do them, though he sometimes forgets his special hand is not in a form that can do that.

Fighting

Richard is trained in basic hand-to-hand combat techniques, and can use his HHG, or even the various CyberHand's he has to defend himself. Given any hand to hand to hand weaponry, he is more then capable of keeping attackers off of himself, and he is aware of how to handle grenades, even though he tends to forget he has them on his person. Though he's never piloted one in battle, he has been trained in the use of power armors, and would be able to use them if the need arise.

Survival

Richard knows all basic survival techniques, and his CyberHand comes in handy for it. He knows how to build basic shelters, how to decide which foods his catches need to cooked and what don't need to be, can use his CyberHand Self-Heating Skillet to light fires, cook food, or as an extra heating source.

Strategy

Richard knows basic strategy, and can follow instructions too the letter with little problem figuring them out. He himself is not good at coming up with strategies, but is capable of changing personal tactics on the fly. He works well with a team, and is usually good at keeping moral up for everyone. His judgment of distance is sometimes a little off, and he sometimes misses ambush points, but he gets it smack on just as often as he gets it off slightly. No matter the amount of stress, his moral never seems to dip, and he's always able to carry his instructions.

Medical

Rich knows what he needs to know to keep people alive. He can diagnose diseases, injuries, and the like, and knows how to treat almost anything given the tools. He has specially designed tools to assist in some of the more severe emergencies were time is of the essence, specifically, his Auto-Bone Saw and Auto-Hypo hand attatchments. He knows how to use hospital equipment to basic success.

Culinary

Rich is a self taught chef. Despite no formal culinary training, he has a natural affinity for food stuffs, and is able to tell from quick tastes, smells, or even sometimes on sight, if one thing will go well with another. The only thing he can't cook is fish, which makes him nauseous when it cooks.

Entertainment

Richard has a natural talent for singing, and has, in his spare time, been attempting to teach himself the guitar. He has the basics, but still screws up more often then not, and isn't capable of any extreme rifts.
