Richard was born in Manchester. St. Mary’s hospital to be precise, his mother gave birth alone due to the fact his father had left her at an early age. She became pregnant at the early age of 16 and the father wanted nothing to do with it and walked out. Due to being a young parent his mother was very vulnerable and had no support from any of her family; they were shacked up in a shitty council flat in Manchester.
Rich grew up to be quite a pain, he didn’t really give half a shit about school and didn’t care about the pain he was causing his mother either. During his time in secondary school his mother developed cancer, she fought it once and pulled through however she wasn’t so lucky the second time she passed away just before he sat his GCSE’s in year 11, this resulted in him failing near enough everything. Despite failing everything he was still optimistic, he had a few friends that he had made whilst at school and they had made a band. He was the frontman and lead vocalist for this band, they spent years grafting trying to get somewhere; every day it would be the same for him, go down to the job center, get his benefits, spend it on beer and then go down the shed to bash out some songs with the band.
Fast forward a few years and Rain are doing gigs all over the world, now onto why he’s on the boat, Richard decided to go on the cruise mainly because he fucking loves drinking and parties however there was a deal to be signed but to him this was just something of little importance. Richard spent most of the day off his fucking bonce on cocaine however when the room’s were opened and infected members of the ship started stumbling out he was ready. He ripped a pipe from the wall in his cabin’s bathroom and rushed outside beginning to belt the pipe into the skulls of the infected persons. After fighting for three hours or so he retreated to talk with the other people who had been fighting as well as to check on those who chose not too, they threw the dead overboard.
After a little while someone stepped up and decided to have a go at piloting the ship which resulted in the group reaching land somewhere along South Zagoria’s coastline.
