Huan was born in Little Lamplight in 2268. He grew up as an active member of the child-run society serving as a member of the scavenging team and a skilled scout. As a child he earned the nickname "Zip" as the result of the hyperactivity caused by his borderline addictive enjoyment of Nuka-Cola.
He was known as "Ricky" in Little Lamplight and grew up never knowing that he was different to his fellow children. It wasn't until his forcible expulsion from Little Lamplight in 2284 on his sixteenth birthday that he learned that he looked different to those around him.
Adult Life Edit
Huan argued with his fellow Lamplighters about the morals of banishing unprepared youth out into an unforgiving and hostile wasteland. He bitterly protested against the traditional practice and attempted to resist his own expulsion in his sixteenth year. However, despite his protests Huan was forced to leave Little Lamplight on his sixteenth birthday. A bitter-hearted Richard reluctantly set off into the wastes with a grudge against the underground child-run community he'd once called home. It would be years before Richard was finally able to forgive Little Lamplight for turning on him.
Soon after leaving Little Lamplight a disillusioned Richard encountered Jiang Liao, a Chinese ghoul who had once been the commanding officer of a Chinese Army infiltration team before the Great War, who became his adoptive father. Under Jiang's tutelage the impressionable Huan came to understand his Chinese ancestry and learned the Chinese language. The pair developed a close familial band with the kindly Jiang, who had become disillusioned with the entire Great War after the bombs dropped, leaving his officer's sword to his adopted son as a family heirloom.
