A quiet man, Richard Tanner (called Dick by everyone) feels as if the world has abandoned him after his the orphanage threw him out onto the streets when he was only 10. There he learned to survive, relying on himself alone, and using others to survive, stealing and killing as he went. Shortly before the apocalyptic event that ended the world, Dick was sent to prison where he learned to fight with a knife pretty handily, and increase his level of skill at sleight of hand (and magic, using a deck of cards he keeps on him all the time now). During the initial days of the outbreak he hide in the prison, savaging what was left behind after the gassing of the prison by the warden/guards killed most of the other prisoners). Now it's just him against the world again, like always, for he is no stranger to being alone and relying on himself. In this new world order he is still the same young man that uses his skills and wits for mostly his own gain, and his allies (if it benefits him), which usually means doing things by force, but he's willing to be lenient if things are done quickly. Thievery, killing, and backstabbing are all things he's more than okay with, and will use all of them at his leisure to ensure his survival, gain, and to fulfill his greed for more. For his hunger for more, never, ever, ends.
