TRILOGY: LotR
DATE OF BIRTH AND AGE (AS OF T.A. 2941/3019): He was born on 8 Forelithe, T.A. 2992(I used wikipedia for the calendar info so if it is wrong let me know)
PLACE OF BIRTH: Archet

EYE COLOUR: Dark Blue 
BODY TYPE AND HEIGHT: He weighs 200 lbs and is about 6'2". He has a broad, muscular build from his time spent hunting with his adoptive fathers. 
OVERALL APPEARANCE:  He generally wears a green or brown padded leather jerkin with matching trousers. His boots are also padded leather, and he usually has a cloak to match, though when he is farther north, he has thicker fur cloaks he can wear. 
DISTINGUISHING MARKS:  N/A
WEAPONS: two steel daggers, fifty arrows, and a hunting bow.   
FACE CLAIM: Johnny Harrington 

STRENGTHS:  hunting, tracking and observing nature
WEAKNESSES:  He likes to drink, and is quick to anger if he sees someone being wronged.
ASPIRATIONS:  His ultimate goal is to find out why his biological parents were murdered and to protect the people of Middle-Earth.   
FEARS:  What frightens them? He has an intense fear of bandits and does not like the dark at all.
PERSONALITY:  Ever since the murder of his parents, Richard was never the same from when he was just a lad. He seems to have fits of despair, anger, and depression, and he often copes with this by drinking. However, when he is not struggling with that, he seems to be an upbeat and jovial young man, in love with his husband Faranor, a Ranger of the North, along with Richard.

HISTORY:  He was born in Archet, the loving son of Roderick Blackthorn and his wife Dawn. They ran the local inn in Archet, and they taught their son to be a kind and loving boy. However, when he was just seven, tragedy struck.

Bandits led a raid on Archet, and his father was called to the town's defence. He was struck down by a blow from a greatsword, and his mother soon raced out trying to mourn her husband. She too was struck down, but from several arrows to the chest.

Ultimately two Rangers, Celegir and Maethor, were heading to town to trade pelts when they saw what was happening. They rushed in from behind, and with the town guard, they were able to manage to defeat most of the bandits, though some, including the leader, were able to retreat. The men saw that the child would most likely end up on the streets as an urchin; or worse, a thief. They retrieved the child, who was in shock and brought him to their cabin in the mountains near Archet. There he learned how to be a hunter and all the various tasks that came with it, such as tracking, stealth, and physical training. Richard chose to stay with them because they saved his life.

Soon though, another young Ranger visited them. His name was Faranor. Faranor is a loving, kind, gentle young man who passed by their cabin by chance, and asked if he could spend a few nights there since he had quite a journey to make, going farther up into the mountains, to a Ranger outpost. He was not related to Richard's father's however. Richard felt attracted to the tenderness in this young man's soul. He and Richard soon developed a loving, open relationship, ultimately marrying each other after about a month of courting.

Recently, he has decided that he will travel around the North looking to see if there is anyone else near Archet on the day it was attacked. He feels lke even though he probably will not be successful, he has the skills necessary to see if he can find anything on the bandits.

Quote
Arrows flew all around Richard as a townsman picked him up and said loudly, "We're going to get you inside, where it is safe. I don't want to have to tell your parents that they lost their child." As he picked up the child he saw a greatsword blow hit his father. The blade traveled trough his shoulder into a torso. Richard screamed, "NO!" as his mother rushed out. After that,several arrows flew through the air, piercing his mother Dawn in the heart and around her heart. He began to weep loudly as he was brought inside.
