At an early age, Richard was already travelling across half the world with his family, searching for relics. Because of frequent relocating, his family took it upon themselves to teach what they know to Richard. So Richard had learnt how to forge small documents, how to reload ammunition, etc, etc ... But instead, Richard chose the world of books. He visits libraries and looks up for any information that is helpful for his family. Language is not a problem for him - when he was ten, he had already knew how to speak and write five different ethnic languages. Richard's travels with his family ended when his elder sister decided to settle down and get married. They bought a ranch, and Richard was enrolled into a REAL school. But because of his lack of exposure to people around his age, Richard tends to keep to himself.
