Early life[edit | edit source]
Childhood[edit | edit source]
Richie was born on 17 January 1997 to his proud parents in his native Birmingham. His parents had been married for 2 years. Shortly after his birth, the family moved to a bigger house.
After a year and a half since the birth of Richie, the family was greeted by a new arrival- Richie's sister, Leona.
At the age of five, Richie was pressed into piano lessons. He progressed rapidly, although he was very uncomfortable with his teacher.
Three years after, Richie's cousin, Julian Days, inspired the boy to start playing the guitar. A simple visit to a relative's home started a lifetime hobby. Julian was showing off to his younger cousins when Richie said he wanted to try. Julian cheerfully replied: "Sorry chap, but this takes a while to get used to. You see these strings? They're made of steel- that's metal. Playing hurts your fingers first, but you get used to it. Are you sure you want to try?" A young Richie nodded eagerly.
For the next five years, Julian taught Richie how to play the guitar. Julian moved to Liverpool afterwards, leaving Richie to progress on his own.
Move to Pleasantview[edit | edit source]
At the age of fifteen, Richie and his family moved abroad to a small village inside of SimCity: Pleasantview. He moved during his school summer break. He and Leona had been learning Simlish for the past year prior to moving.
On a simple bus ride to school, Richie met Angela Pleasant. The two struck up in conversation that lead to a long-lasting friendship. After meeting Angela, Richie became friends with Dustin, Dirk, Lilith and Donnie and Marty Lothario.
When Richie's father died in a car accident, Angela supported him. In the end, they confessed their feelings for one another and started a relationship.
Afterwards, Don Lothario had become a father-figure in Richie's life.
College[edit | edit source]
Very little is known about Richie's college life. It is rumoured Richie shared a private residence with the Lothario twins. It is also presumed Richie took the Biology major, in order to help his career in medicine in the future. Richie graduated Cum Laude.
The most well-known fact about Richie's college life is a fight he got caught up in. The main bully, known simply as "Trevor", started giving Marty a hard time. Dustin Broke stepped in and, before anyone realised what was going on, Richie and Dustin had got caught up in the fight, resulting in a week-long suspension.
The fight had nearly resulted in the loss of vision in Richie's left eye. His glasses shattered, and the shards cut the skin around his eye. If Richie had been unlucky, he may have lost all vision in his eye. From that incident onwards, Richie decided to use contacts lenses.
A few hours after the scrape, Richie had a temporary disagreement with Angela. Angela misheard Richie and Lilith's conversation, which was about them spending the future together as family (as in Lilith's brother-in-law. Richie was confident he wouldn't break up with Angela). Unfortunately, Angela misheard this as Richie leaving her for Lilith and got upset. She told Dirk her side of the story, resulting in a small stint of anger towards Lilith. After the misunderstanding was cleared up, she and Dirk apologised to Richie and Lilith.
When it was Angela's 18th birthday, Richie was reminded of a conversation the two had when they had known each other for a few days, about how Angela was looking for the one, and, although it wasn't mentioned, she was certain she had found him.
Adult life[edit | edit source]
When Richie graduated, he moved into a small home with his girlfriend. To keep paying the bills, Richie got a job as a patrol officer. Alexander Goth, who was also working in the same career, pulled a few strings in order to get Richie a job.
On his first night, Richie apprehended Pleasantview's crime lord- Gordon King.
Approximately a year later, Richie got engaged to his long-term girlfriend, Angela. Shortly afterward, Richie discovered Mortimer Goth had died. Little did anyone know, Mortimer had become a bit of a grandfather to him and this was another blow which knocked him off balance for a while.
Angela and Richie got married about a year later, and two years after that, they had Connor Hutchworth, a lively boy. He became close with his cousin, Drew Dreamer, who was of the same age.
Three years after the birth of Connor, Richie and Angela had another son. Paddy was very quiet for his own good, a flaw Richie had noticed with his best friend, Marty Lothario. Joey Broke became a role model in Paddy's life, despite the large age difference between the two.
