History

Childhood
◈ Rich is the second child of Phillip and Carmen, followed closely by an "Irish twin," Camille.
◈ Grew up in North Carolina, father was a recognized carpenter, mother, an accountant.
◈ Homelife was relatively stable, but Phillip was a bit of an absentee. He made frequent, long trips to Asia to coordinate the outsourcing of his products after one of his pieces caught the eye of a brand.
◈ During one of these trips, Philip earned the ire of a local ambush of tiger shifters. They turned him.
◈ Philip returned home and infected the whole family on the next full moon.

Adolescence
◈ Carmen left him, and took the children, but didn't officially divorce Philip.
◈ Rich played several sports in school, eventually settling on basketball, this earned him a college scholarship.
◈ Missed a starting game on the night of a full moon in his junior year and was kicked off the team.
◈ With his scholarship gone, and not wanting to get himself in any debt, Rich dropped out of college.
◈ Had a steady girlfriend through high school and college, broke they broke it off after Rich left school.

Adulthood
◈ His life in some disarray, Rich made several moves from 2010-2015, not staying in one city too long. Los Angeles, Pheonix, Seattle, and Dallas.
◈ Received his electrician apprenticeship in Pheonix, but made no moves to work to Journeyman, preferring to work second shift jobs.
◈ Moved to Salt Lake City in 2015 and got involved with someone. After he drunkenly cheated on her, he left Salt Lake in mid-2016 and landed in Portland.

2016-Present
◈ Collected pay stubs from several different Portland bars in the first year before finding a company he liked.
◈ Developed a relationship with a local witch interested in opening a club in the city.
