When Richard meets someone new he likes to be more reserved and quiet, but once he becomes close to the person, they would wish he would keep quiet, but it's too late by then. He likes to act tough but secretly he is a teddy bear, The war in the Middle East made him look like he had toughen up, but it was the supernatural creatures that made it harder to get to know people. He uses bad puns as a way to avoid what he is really thinking.
Raven Reuvan - big pain in the ass. Takes all his funds had saved up over the years but he doesn't care. They are trapped in a town. Someone might as well enjoy it
Angie - dated briefly. Broke it off when she dated Kyle at the same time
