Stop, drop, and drag me into place.
And lock the fire escapes; I'll break your pretty face
Now shut your dirty mouth! If I could burn this town
I wouldn't hesitate to smile while you suffocate and die

Ricky is an athletic young man with a mostly-clean body devoid of hair aside from some shaggy bits under his arms and his lower abdomen, which when under light, is a supple sienna, like his hair. He’s slightly taller than most kids in his classes, which he attributes to his genetics of tall men (and in some cases, women). That is to say, he’s six feet even and his weight is considerably higher due to his body leaning towards athletically muscular. It helps that the linebacker has a toned body. And on the topic of something that attributes to his overall visage, it’s been noted that Ricky’s stormy eyes tell a lot of stories and tell of the pain he has to endure throughout his life.
Never expect Ricky Quinn to adhere to normal fashion conventions. He’ll wear the same shirt multiple days in a row if he happens to enjoy it, which is to say he doesn’t give a fuck what people think about him. He wears the same brand of long sleeve shirts that belong in the early 2000s what with their flaming pattern and graffiti-inspired designs. He also has one leather jacket he wears all the time. Jeans are his preferred lower-body clothing item and simple shoes like vans or Nike if he’s feeling fancy enough do it for him. He doesn’t have any accessories aside from his phone and headphones for when he has to go into beast mode.
Ricky doesn’t have any piercings or tattoos, but he has one notable scar on the left side of his neck that is reminiscent of a burn that never completely healed.

Ricky has a reputation of being a troublemaker, but not necessarily the kind that people want to be around. Oh sure, he might seem like a lot of fun to be around on the surface. He’ll make teacher’s lives a living hell, he might impulsively take you on an adventure of law-breaking, but as most with a level head on their shoulders might tell you, stay away from Pactrick Hunter Quinn. He’ll dive head first into an adventure bu t take it too far and make everyone regret it just as much. Either he has no fears or doesn’t know the limits of which he should do.
On a personal level, Ricky doesn’t exist. He never lets anyone get too close to him. This comes from a lifetime of pain and knowing he isn’t really a people person. He borders on being a loner and was known as “That aggressive dude who likes to hit people”. It’s obviously true. He’s not a very nice guy either. Whether intentional or not, he’s an asshole and has never known what was right or what was wrong. That part of his brain came loose after a while. Oh and he’s a “hit first, ask questions later” kind of guy.
People have noted that his sense of humor leans on the dark and twisted side. He’ll make light of situations such as mass murder and other triggering subjects. Even his own experiences of abuse, though nobody in passing conversation would know, is up for a sarcastic quip here and there. Truth is, he doesn’t know if he can be a good guy or not. Maybe he wants to in his own strange way, but as it stands, Ricky just can’t see himself like that. Despite this -- and clearly to his own surprise -- people actually like him. He never bothers to tell them to leave him alone, but that doesn’t mean he’ll think they’re all right in the head, which might be funny coming from the one who jokes about getting beaten up by daddy (and not in the fun, kinky way, either).
"You haven't even seen my bad side yet."
Ricky was born of the name Patrick Hunter Quinn and to a pair of very questionable parents by the names of Emily Rose Montgomery (nee. Quinn) and her very charming and part-time abusive husband, Douglas Fredrick Montgomery. Both have severe drug addictions with the two of them preferring oxy and heroin. The trouble in Ricky’s life could be traced back to the day they decided that they were capable of caring for a child.
So in 2002, Ricky was brought into a world that didn’t take long at all to show that he came second nature to his parents and their addictions. For the first couple of years, it wasn’t so bad because according to his aunt when he would sometimes ask, Emily and Doug tried. They really did, but their sickness became too much. By the time Ricky was seven years old, his parents often neglected him in a lot of ways and it started out small. First, they would forget to pick him up from school on time or drop him off on time, but then it escalated. There were times he had to walk a mile to school alone. He was lucky that most of everyone in the neighborhood he grew up in loved and adored him, so nobody tried anything. Despite this, the neglection continued until the day came when Ricky tried to say something.
And that’s when emotional abuse and neglect faded while physical abuse took its place. Anytime that he caused an inconvenience or didn’t do something that Douglas approved of, Ricky got his ass beat; and as their only child, there was no younger sibling to protect, no older sibling to protect him, or no mother of his coming to his rescue. And after a while, Ricky became immune to the pain. It still hurt but it never registered. He would even learn to accept it as something that was the result of him being a troubled child.
Life continued and Ricky enduring a troubled home for another year. The beatings were less and less when Emily became his focus. This time, however, it didn’t stop with a simple punch or kick to the stomach. Douglas had it in his mind that his son was getting off too easy and had to be taught a lesson, so he persisted until his own son, who would have been only nine at this point, had several bruised bones and a blackened eye. The cops were called and CPS finally stepped in and removed Ricky from his parents’ care.
Now, during all of this, the only thing Ricky had on his mind was how he was conflicted about wanting to go back to his parents but being angry that his mother did nothing to stop his father from beating on him.
Amidst everything happening around him, a sequence of events happened that completely changed Ricky’s life as he knew it. The first, of course, was being sent to a group home until someone could be contacted that might potentially take him in. After he was settled in a group home, the DA was quick to bring up various charges ranging from drug possession, assault on a minor, child endangerment, and resisting arrest. The total amount of charges were still growing, but this wasn’t the only thing that changed the course of Ricky’s life. Come morning, when Ricky would have usually gotten ready for school, he was instead met by a red-haired woman who he immediately recognized as his Aunt Ramona. She then revealed to him that he was going to live with her in Columbus for a while.
At the beginning, Ricky had a hard time adjusting to a new school and being in a new home, but with time, he came to accept this as his life. The news of his parents going away for seven years wasn’t great to hear. Now seventeen, a nearly-grown Ricky Quinn couldn’t be happier -- well, whatever happy was for him. He was a little moody, if not crabby about a lot of things. But what? He showed good vibes up until a few weeks ago. Whatever the sudden change in mood, it has his Aunt worried but knows if he wanted to talk about it, he’ll come to her.
