Richard Maxwell


Richard Maxwell HsajVaU

Basic Character Information


Starting Bonus: Pocket change | [Starting Bonus Roll]

First Name: Richard
Middle Name/Initial: -
Last Name: Maxwell
Epithet: Plague Rat
Age: 47
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Faction: Pirate
Affiliation: --
Position: --
Profession:
Doctor - Studying and practicing medicine for almost 30 years in total has made Richard very skilled in his primary craft. No race is beyond his anatomical knowledge. He can perform first-aid exceptionally well and handle basic surgical procedures with improvised or lacking equipment. Though honest and respectable doctors may never admit it, his skills have only sharpened since he lost his medical license, cementing his position as one of the best.

Chemist - Decades of experiencing with more or less dangerous chemicals have left their mark. He can cook up wonderful medicine, potent poisons and all sorts of concoctions reliably out of dubious ingredients.

Thief - Something of a natural talent, he is well-versed in pickpocketing, lock picking and all other sorts of shady business.


Physical Appearance


Height: 6'0"
Weight: 160 lbs.

Hair Style: Short, sleek and neatly combed back
Hair Color: Brown with few white streaks
Eye Color: Sickly green
Scars: N/A
Clothing and Accessories: No matter the occasion, Richard dresses to impress. His usual outfit is a chocolate brown suit that consists of a coat, trousers, leather shoes and a wide-brimmed hat with a white hatband. Beneath it, he wears a dark brown vest along with a white, striped dress shirt. Blue tie, white gloves and a simple steel watch complete the refined look. If he’s feeling particularly dramatic, or just wants to appear more professional, the hat comes off, jacket gets replaced with a classic laboratory coat and gloves with black rubber ones. Most often he is seen with an expensive cigarette burning between his teeth.

Description: Richard is tall and lanky, with no visible muscles worth mentioning. His short and sleek hair is kept neatly combed back, but it has gotten some unnatural white streaks thanks to a little lab accident. Luckily, his dashing thin moustache remained brown. Years of chemical exposure have turned his eyes sickly green and a careful observer can notice black swirly patterns in the place of pupils. Rumor has it that the swirls twist into beli symbols whenever he’s blinded by greed.

  • Greedy
  • Dishonest

  • Affable

  • Wealth
  • Smoking
  • Secrecy
  • Chemicals
  • Long walks

  • Debts

Unique laugh: Chihihi

Hometown: Loguetown
Personality: The first thing to know about Richard Maxwell is that he is greedy beyond belief and absolutely loves everything physically valuable. Money, treasure and trinkets are all on the list of things he can never have enough. Shiny gems are his greatest weakness and he’ll do anything to get his hands on them. When blinded by greed, he won’t hesitate to sell out his comrades, sabotage acquaintances and generally stab people in the back. It often seems that he is only loyal to the highest bidder, but the rare people who have gained his true respect will know differently.

Richard is a polite, calm and generally affable person around everyone he meets. People are treated with friendly respect regardless of their social standing. He rarely raises his voice or gets angry, preferring to use stinging sarcasm when things don’t go his way. His behavior remains the same among allies and enemies alike, partially because he doesn’t harbor strong hate towards anyone, but mostly because it’s all just a façade to hide his real intentions. Bluffing is such a big part of his speech that sometimes he even believes his own lies.

However, most that goes out of the window when the rat is frightened, which isn’t very hard to achieve. He is cowardly by nature and gets easily intimidated by anyone with power, skill or particularly notorious fame. During scary situations, he tries to hide his fear by pretending that he has seen worse, or by acting that he has the upper hand. However, pretty much anyone with common sense can see right through him. Whenever he is scared, he can’t stop trembling and his bluffing skill just vanishes. While he is naturally quite talkative, his fear throws this out of control as well and shutting him up becomes unbelievably difficult.

As a doctor, the criminal still cares for the well-being of other people, even if he doesn’t often act like it. When someone is injured or ill, he can offer his help and ask for a hefty payment up front in the same sentence without feeling a twinge of guilt. He used to be much more open about helping and without any hidden intentions, especially when it came to people he knew, but the world changes a man. Nowadays, he’s too jaded to feel bad for anyone, or at least so he likes to think. In truth, Richard has just as much empathy as any normal person. He just keeps it bottled up and hidden.

History:

Richard Maxwell was the only child of Victor and Melanie Maxwell, both of whom have passed away some years ago. He was an honest and hardworking fellow at first, studying diligently to become a doctor and to help people. Back then it was his biggest dream. As a result, his studies went well and he started his career at the age of 25 in Loguetown. In five years, he gained some reputation as a good doctor and even got married with a fiery, but good-hearted barkeeper, Jana. The couple continued to live together, managing to stay out of trouble with both pirates and marines despite Loguetown being a popular among pirates.

However, treating the civilian casualties of the fights that occurred between pirates and marines left their mark on Richard. His friendly demeanor never left him, but something beneath it changed, turning his smile hollow. Both his friends and wife noticed it, but he politely refused to admit that anything was wrong. Any attempts to sort it out or even talk about were just brushed aside with a quip. When Jana came to accept that there was nothing she could do for him, she wished for a divorce on the grounds that he was no longer the man she had loved. They parted peacefully three years ago. Jana kept their house while Richard headed to seas with bit over half of their shared money.

During his honest career, Richard was hailed as one of the greatest doctors in the world. Especially his skills at mixing medicine and other helpful concoctions were known far and wide. However, the man himself deemed that one could not make enough profit with just honest work. After his career shady change, he turned his knowledge into a weapon that could heal and hurt in equal measure. That was the last straw to his colleagues, who unanimously saw to it that his medical license was swiftly revoked. Truthfully he didn’t mind all that much though. His new clientele were not exactly the type to care about permits anyhow.

Over the recent years Richard has turned into a fully-fledged criminal who is completely driven by his greed. Every time he switches a town, he changes his approach. In one town he is just a thief, in another he is a back alley doctor and so forth. He only stays in an area as long as it’s safe and profitable for him. Occasionally, he has gotten into trouble with beginner bounty hunters who were eager to test their skills on a supposedly easy target. So far he has managed to escape every encounter with while keeping his reputation minuscule enough to have marines focus on bigger criminals, but it’s difficult to say how long his luck will last.

Currently, he spends his time searching for an opportunity to get rich quick.

The first most realistic character of our site! The Plague Rat's bio was a pleasure to read. There was a small misstep in your stats total where you'd forgotten to include the equipment bonuses (which, I suppose is partially my fault for not clarifying it in the character template). I've gone ahead and fixed it for you so I could approve your character. Speaking of which, here is that badge of honor:

-Brakes.-

Actually, I just realized (I don't know how I missed it the first time), but your stat-assignment to Willpower is unfeasible based on the personality you've given your character.

0 willpower would be suitable for someone who had suicidal intentions and zero self-esteem. For someone with his personality (despite the cowardice), the Willpower should at least be close to 100. He may be a coward, but he has ambition, and the drive to move forward in his life. Do not sacrifice willpower just so you can make your reflex stat overwhelming.

Solid reasoning. Stats have been edited accordingly. Namely 100 from Reflex has been transferred to Willpower.
