Raymond Romanov is a character role-played by Ray__C.

Description

Raymond Romanov was born in Russia on Valentines day in 1994. He has grey hair and usually wears a grey suit and glasses. He is known for his great flying and was the "best pilot in his nation". He uses Rayven-1 as his call sign for radio communications with air traffic personnel. He seems to be liked by many and has made connections throughout the city in a short time.

Raymond has a few jobs and is one of the founders and co-owners of Betta Life Pharmaceuticals. Raymond's charms and his friendly nature works very well to disguise his criminal life. He is a very valuable member of Cleanbois and Pegasus Concierge. His reputation in the criminal world has grown quickly, effectively creating a very reliable network to reach for information, resources and jobs that aid with his criminal endeavours. His constant motivation to progress in criminal activity has earned him the affectionate title of "The Grinder" of Cleanbois.

One of his major vices is his addiction to gambling at the Diamond Resort and Casino, admitting that "it is an issue". Common phrases heard in the casino are"Raymond is addicted to gambling", "I want to gamble more" and "I got no control". Raymond also has a habit of constantly hitting on any female he encounters, who become smitten (earning their "wife badge") though he has insisted he is a "new man" after meeting his current girlfriend, Kitty Dream.

Raymond is also known for his obsession of motorcycles, specifically the Akumas. He can never resist the urge of stealing bikes and can spend up to an hour stashing them all around the city to be used for all different types of getaways. Additionally, he is infamous for his lengthy planning, which some people, including Irwin Dundee and Lang Buddha, have expressed their distaste for. Despite their criticisms, Raymond's intricate plans have helped them succeed in many jobs, despite the consistent scuff they encounter. His "Ride-or-Die" mentality has saved his friends, specifically Lang Buddha on multiple occasions and, is in fact, one of the contributing factors to earning respect and admiration from Lang Buddha, earning his place in the Cleanbois.

The Introduction (3rd April 2021)
While Lang Buddha was waiting for his weed operation to be legalised, he has been growing and selling them illegally.

One night, Raymond received instructions to go to the "ranch" in the last minute by Lang. He then learned that he was there as a backup to Harry Brown, Erin Cox and Barry Svensson, securing the production and transportation of weeds.

The night did not work out as planned as the weeds were all stole by 3 men who managed sneak into the farm undetected. The 3 men was later known as Jean Paul, Lenny Large and Charles Johnson.

The Dispute (3rd April 2021)
Raymond received a text from Riley asking him to meet her at the dam while in the car with Harry Brown. He quickly learned that the dam is a prime location for executions. When he arrived, he found himself pointing his gun at a man, which happens to be a friend of his, Malakai Anderson.

Raymond later learned that Malakai used Gillea Taylor to make Riley jealous but that had angered her too in the process. Riley then became obsessed to get her revenge against Malakai and Gillia. Her mission brought up mix feelings and clashes between principles, which led to Raymond feeling as if he had lost a friend in both Riley and Harry. In one of Riley's text messages to Raymond later, she said to him: "I care about you and will always be there for you ".

Raymond and Riley met up later and he learned that Riley had put herself in a lot of trouble. She told him that she stabbed Malakai before throwing him down the pier and fled the scene immediately. However, she couldn't bring herself to let Malakai die so she went back to save him and drove him to the hospital. While Malakai was receiving treatment, EMS told Riley that Gillia was a witness to the attempted murder and had reported it to the authorities.

Raymond, being a great friend of Riley, drove her back to her apartment to prepare for any potential raid. They later rekindled their relationship. Not long after, Raymond called Harry on the phone to inform him about Riley's situation. They talked for a while and Harry told Raymond: "I care about you, Ray" and "I just don't want you to get hurt", "like what you've seen first hand", referring to Riley's situation.

Then, coincidently, Raymond received the opportunity to do his first ever bank heist not long later. Raymond and Riley planned and robbed the bank together, while bringing along Juan Carlos Hernandez, aka Flippy, and Malakai, after his recovery and being the best hacker Riley knew at that instance (AND WHY NOT?). The heist was a success and Harry was happy and congratulated him over the phone for his first successful bank heist.

The Oxy Shootout (6th April 2021)
Shootout vs Claire Seducer and co.
Burger Shot family drama (22nd to 26th April 2021)
22nd April 2021:

Robert Spowylamywanowski demanded to Raymond to take Kitty Dream on an official date at the Burger Shot while Robert, Emma Natt and many of Kitty's friends (Pilbis Shonley, Fingle Dan, Jimmy Umami ["Bike Guy"], Four Tee, Sherry Paie, etc.) tagged along and interrogated Raymond. Then, Raymond took Kitty, Robert and Emma to a concert and then to a helicopter ride as a change of scenery. At the end of their date, Raymond seemed to have gained some approval from Robert but Robert and some of Kitty's friends still have doubts about Raymond.

23rd April 2021:

In an attempt to break up Raymond and Kitty, Robert and Shelly set up a meeting with him at the Burger Shot to try to persuade him into believing Kitty is cheating on him with Karl Johnny Black (KJ). They staged and photographed scenes of Kitty and KJ hugging and drinking together, but he refused to believe their narratives. Raymond emphasised that he will only hear the story from Kitty herself before leaving with disbelief and anger of their behaviour towards both himself and Kitty. He felt that his personal space was constantly violated by Robert and Sherry ever since he started dating Kitty but he is still willing to look pass all of it because of his love for her.

Later that day and towards the end of their date, Raymond told her about the meeting with Robert and Sherry and she told him what had really happened and reassured him that she is committed to their relationship. The reason behind Robert's behaviours towards Raymond, as Kitty described, is that Raymond is the first person to ever challenge him the way he did.

24th April 2021:

KJ went to Rooster's Rest while Raymond and Kitty were on their shift to come clean and admitted that the scenes involving himself and Kitty was a set-up orchestrated by Robert and Sherry. He expressed that he meant no disrespect to the both of them and said that he has no feelings for Kitty. KJ also told them that he felt betrayed because Robert had not rewarded him for being part of the set-up. Raymond was unpleased with Robert and Sherry and is planning his revenge, potentially, with KJ's help.

26th April 2021:

After Kitty's shift at Rooster's Rest, Raymond and Kitty met up with Robert and Sherry again. After some verbal back and forth and Robert and Sherry injured "Bucky", they decided to give Raymond a chance with Kitty.

Interrogator (27th April 2021)
Raymond and Mickey S helped Irwin Dundee and Riley Carter to interrogate Channing Turner (Chain), a soon-to-be-prospect of the Bondi Boys MC (BBMC). They did not manage to break Chain so they attempted to burn him alive. Chain managed to pass the test and was inducted into the BBMC. The cops got to the crime scene as they were leaving, due to reports of gun shots. Everyone managed to lose the cops early except Dundee. But Raymond managed to go back to save him.

Shootout with the Blocks (14th July 2021)
Mike Block, Four Tee and a few members of the Alta Street Ruff Rydaz, aka Block Gang, including David Wonders, aka Mime Block, held Kitty Dream at gun point and stole her car. After learning that Kitty reported the incident to the cops, the Blocks kidnapped Mickey S, while trying to retrieve her car. Kitty then told Raymond about the situation. Unfortunately, Kitty was found and kidnapped by the Blocks while Raymond was calling Irwin Dundee and Barry Benson for help. This lead to a shootout just outside the Benny's Original Motor Works, where most of the Blocks and Four Tee was downed. Mickey was downed too but he was rescued by Kitty and James Barnes, aka Bucky, and managed to escape, while Raymond was saved by fellow racer, Adam Peterson, aka AP. Dundee and Barry did not manage to escape before the police arrived and they went down after exchanging gunfire. Barry was processed and jailed but Dundee managed to escape with a warrant for his arrest. In the middle of the shootout after Raymond gunned down Mike, he spared Four Tee's life after finding her hiding behind a dumpster, due to their friendship. Unexpectedly, Four Tee then held up Raymond almost immediately and told him that Mike is her Number 1. She let him go right before the police arrived at the crime scene.
