Personal History

Born of Helena Petrovak, a Terran school teacher and Mapp, a Klingon archeologist of a dishonored house, Richard spent his early years traveling the Alpha quadrant with his parents and a group of scientists on a ship that was exploring ancient ruins in a sector in the Cardassian DMZ.

When Richard was 7 years old, he and his family were visiting Bajor when there was a terrorist attack by a group allegedly made up of Cardassians. In this attack both of his parents were killed in front if him, his mother dying as he hovered over her.

Richard was then taken in by a man named Haen Ri, a Bajoran who ‘adopted’ him into his family. The ‘family’ was more of an organization. They trained operatives for a number of planetary governments and regional powers. Richard spent the next ten years being trained in all manner of security systems, asset elimination, and covert methods of acquiring the tools needed to get needed supplies and equipment.

He never actually ‘graduated’ but was recruited when he was 17 years old by an operative of Section 31. He spent the next 12 years working around the alpha and beta quadrants as a professional assassin and troubleshooter. His jobs varied from disrupting organizations by diverting their supplies and disrupting their resources to eliminating leaders of some of the groups. He never once operated to eliminate a head of state or high-ranking official, but he was known to help topple a few regimes by helping to prop up their opponents or perhaps weaken certain aspects of their own organizations.

That all changed when he met Melanie Nicole O’Malley, a reporter for FNN, during an operation. They fell in love and it was a wild romance that led to their being married a year later. Melanie was not a fan of Richard’s being an in-field operative, and as a result his activities were curbed somewhat. He was finally considering settling down and maybe getting a ‘desk job’. The two even got a pet dog. And on Star Date 20707.08, Melanie told him that she was pregnant. The two were going to settle down and start a family.

But Richard had made many enemies, and one day when the two were arriving home from an appointment with Melanie’s doctor, unknown to them an assassin lay in wait. Richard was a very cautious person. Their personal aircars were armored, the house had limited shielding, and he was constantly checking the area for threats.

But on this day Richard’s defenses were low. He wasn’t expecting an attack. And that’s exactly why it happened.

Richard entered his home through the front door while his wife collected her things in the aircar. He decided to head out the back door to walk along the shoreline near their North Carolina home, to relax. He had just closed the door when it happened.

The house exploded, sending a fireball into the sky. The house was decimated and Richard woke up in a hospital bed--several days later. He was informed about the ‘accident’, and the death of his wife and unborn child. There appeared to be little evidence as to the cause of the explosion and Star Fleet ruled it strictly as an accidental incident. The case was closed.

However Richard’s friend, Anton Foreman, a man who Richard worked with and considered a close friend, had checked over the area personally and found some discrepancies in the story. He showed Richard what he found and this put Richard, quite literally, on the warpath. He has spent the past three years tracking down everyone associated with the attack, and systematically eliminating them.

Richard is a man who will work very closely and be fully committed to the job. His only distraction is that he is also on the hunt for the people who caused the destruction of his life, and this is what ultimately brought him into contact with the SIS team. It seems that they are looking for some of the same people; and Richard’s skills in ‘bartering’ (and smuggling) are what brought him here...
