Richter is shy, curt, and not very approachable. He has a soft heart, but not many get to see it. He has a strong sense of justice and can get aggressive toward people who prey on the meek, but he mostly prefers to stick to his books in a quiet corner. He's often hesitant to act because he doesn't want to start trouble, but when friends are in danger or the proper motivation is applied, Richter will rush into the fray to help out. He's learning to be more assertive and is trying to get better at reaching out to others.
Among friends, Richter peeks out of his shell more, cracking jokes with a generally warm affect. He's enthusiastic about science, particularly biology. A bit of a momma's boy and a bookworm, Richter can be a bit reclusive and prefers to be approached by others rather than to strike up a conversation on his own. He does well with more extroverted personalities who are willing to take the reins and guide conversation and tends to sit in silence among other introverts. As a young adult, these traits come together to form a quiet, studious college student who's not involved in many clubs or activities who mostly gets roped into things by friends.
(I have permission from Aery-Child to use Aster as part of Richter's backstory as an established friend.)
Richter is the only child to a single mother. The whereabouts of his father are unknown.
Richter spent the first 5 years of his life in Germany before moving to England with his mom. There, he met Aster in third grade, and the two became friends, both sharing an interest in science. Richter spent most of his school years cooped up in the library, reading and avoiding bullies and general interaction with other people. When Aster moved to Japan for college, Richter stayed behind, taking general courses before he planned to follow after Aster to complete his degree at the same college.
The summer before he embarked to Japan, Richter was spending his final holiday at the beach. It was the end of the season, and the beach was mostly empty. A splash in the water caught his attention. That's when he noticed it. A floundering figure being carried out to sea. A riptide.
He glanced up and down the shore for a lifeguard. He didn't think he could reach one of the towers in time, even if he ran as fast as he could. Mustering up his courage, he stripped down to his trunks and dove in, swimming out to the person struggling against the current. "Deep breaths! Just try to float! I'll try to pull you to shore!" The panicked young woman nodded, choking on tears and salt water as he towed her along the shore until they were out of the current. Richter could see a small shadow following them in the water. It was too small to be anything dangerous so he paid it no mind. By the time they were out of the current, a lifeguard had taken notice and threw them a life ring, helping the exhausted duo to shore.
Once things had calmed down, Richter saw it again. A dark shadow darting around in the water. It washed up on shore, a brown stripey fish. Richter hadn't seen a creature like it before. "Uh, do you need to go back into the water, little guy?" Richter asked.
Ichthyomon just grinned, shooting a jet of water right in Richter's face.
"Hey!" Richter grumbled, his phone tumbling out of his bag into the sand onto a shard of courage.
Aster soon received a call "Hey, uh, buddy? I'm going to be bringing a new friend with me to college."Extra Info:
Aster is the reason Richter is into all sorts of nerdy stuff. Aster is also the one giving Richter fashion advice and helping him be more confident. Richter can't cook to save his life so he basically lives off ramen. Which frankly isn't that unusual for a college kid.
Ichthyomon, called "Theo" for short, is a bubbly, affectionate Digimon. Theo prefers to be in the water when possible, but as long as he's kept hydrated, he can move around freely on land, if a bit awkwardly. Theo enjoys snuggles and playing games, preferably involving a beach ball. He can be quite mischievous and has a bad habit of spraying Richter with water to get his attention instead of just talking. As Ichthyomon Digivolves, he becomes a gentle, encouraging presence, always ready to give Richter that extra little push.
