Real Life Appearance: Richard
has scraggly dark brown hair that no matter what he does with it, it still ends up messy. His skin tone is rather pale and notes to the fact that he doesnâ€™t get out in the sun too often. Wire framed glasses sit on the bridge of his nose. For being the geek that he is, he's rather fit. Being a regular member of a gym, his physique is toned, but not overly bulky. He is rather tall, standing at about 6â€™5â€. He usually is seen wearing an assortment of colored cargo pants, lots of pockets. He wears t-shirts covered usually by a sweater hoodie. The hoodie never comes up, but he like it none the less.
In-Game Appearance: Lone
stands about 6â€™11â€, tall and broad. A strong chest and torso, thick legs meant for moving around quickly. He is somewhat similar to Richard in real life. His outfit is like a ninjaâ€™s, pants that are bound around his ankles, a long sleeved shirt dress and a scarf around his neck that trails off behind him. A scarf covers his mouth and part of his nose leaving the rest of his face uncovered. His skin tone is light, but still much darker than Richards. His hair is a dirty blonde, almost a light brown.
Personality: Richard is for lack of a better term, a geek. He is a book worm. He is actually fun and cheerful. Likes to laugh and joke. He even likes to swoon the ladies, even though he already has one. But that side of him hardly ever shows up. His front around public is standoffish. He puts up a wall around those he doesnâ€™t know and comes across as weird to most. He canâ€™t look a person in the eye and will try his hardest to escape a conversation with someone if he can. But to those who know him best know he is really a fun person to be around. Lone is more of a silent hero, but not quite so silent. When Richard logs online he transforms to a person who likes to be noticed, even though he pretends not to notice himself. Heâ€™ll stand out and be like normal, showing people up and acting like he did nothing at all. He is on one hand chivalrous and will help people in need, but without that person knowing can sometimes expect payback later on down the road.
Bio: Richard lives in a two bedroom apartment with his girlfriend. She is a lot like him, loving video games and books. She too plays on The World Seed, but sticks to more FPS type games. Richard runs a small bookstore that specializes in locating and obtaining books on order from clients and customers. As a matter of fact, their apartment sits just above this small shop. He was rather young when the first events of SAO happened. His cousin was one of the initial beta testers and one of the 6,000 survivors of the game. When he was younger his cousin would regal him with everything that happened over those two years while he was in the game. Richard was always so fascinated and would imagine himself in the game right alongside his cousin.
This is actually what sparked his love for VRMMOâ€™s. He started off by playing ALfheim Online and Enchanted Story, two very fantasy oriented MMORPGâ€™s that at the time were very popular. He then moved to start playing many of the other types of VRMMOâ€™s. He dipped his feet in many different types, but he still found himself returning to the fantasy genre side of games. So as he got older he stuck to those types. When SAOâ€™s world Aincrad was reopened to the public again he dove right into the story. He was actually very bad at the game, having played many games that dealt with magic. Having a game around weapons only took some getting used to. He had only reached the 56th level of the game when his real life caught up to him and made it harder and harder to get online for gaming. Now he has gotten an email stating the event and is planning on using his old player data to participate, putting his store on the back burner during these slower times to enjoy his favorite activity.
Other: He does tend to go it alone when playing games, but isnâ€™t against joining a party when it is necessary. He does tend to fade into the background when he does, but will pull his own weight.
