Richard Dark-Rhodes is a character role-played by Sock22.
General Description[edit | edit source]
Richard Dark-Rhodes is a Deputy for the Blaine County Sheriff's Office, Badge #388.
Dark was previously an Officer for the Los Santos Police Department, Badge #422.
Richard is a close friend to many of his fellow cadets from the same class. He often hangs out with Lauren Forcer when they are off-duty. He's also seen riding along with Kira Light a lot, and the duo is known as the Gay Patrol.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Richard had the tendency to fall in love very quickly after meeting someone, sometimes several times a day. Unfortunately, the people he had an eye for were either not interested, or taken. He is currently married to BCSO Sergeant, Matt Rhodes.
Background Information[edit | edit source]
When Richard was a teenager, his mother went missing; later found dead. Unfortunately in the small town, the police nor detectives never followed through in solving the case of her death.
Following her death, Richard joined the Army but was never deployed. It was at this point in his life that he decided to join the police force, and ended up moving to Los Santos.
Richard hopes to become a Detective in the future, and work on homicide cases.
Major Events[edit | edit source]
51-50 Hold[edit | edit source]
On November 25, 2019, Officer Richard Dark was placed on a temporary medical and psychiatric evaluation hold at Parsons Rehabilitation Center. Richard was drugged by Eugene Zuckerberg and Ellie Dono. Eugene brainwashed Richard in an attempt to have him access the MDT, and delete his warrant. Eugene continued the mind warping by telling Richard that Bovice was responsible for what was happening to him.
Richard showed signs of instability and confusion with his fellow officers after being left at MRPD. He was not coherently responding to questions regarding where he had been, and insisted on being able to sign in to the MDT. After muttering "MDT...Bovice...warrant", Brittany Angel temporarily blocked Richard's access to MDT.
Richard was brought to the lower level of Pillbox, and surrounded by officers for questioning. However, Richard responded to the cornering by pulling a knife on fellow Officer, Kira Light. She immediately detained him in zip tie cuffs, but once she walked a distance away, Richard attempted to cut them free with a lockpick left in his pocket. Officer Lance Malton spotted Richard trying to pull out the lockpick, and immediately removed the object; opting to switch Richard into metal handcuffs at this point.
As the officers, nor Judges, were unaware of Richard's current mental state (and intention) if he were to be left alone, they ultimately decided that Richard needed to stay in a safe place until he was of correct mind. Allowing Richard to sober up, and for his safety and the safety of the public, he was placed in a temporary (24 to 48 hour) hold at Parsons.
