Richard O'Garrity was a MechWarrior and Arena Gladiator in the early to mid 31st century.[2]

History & Tactics[edit]

Richard O'Garrity was born on Algedi, a planet he fled in 3036 after murdering the parents of his beloved in a fit of rage. After some drifting he landed on Westerhand and started fighting in the gladiator games. In 3040, he won his BattleMech in a duel.

When Ilkwan Stables was formed on Westerhand, he was able to convince Benjamin Tariq that his knowledge of the games would be an asset (which it was), even if the faith of his parents was somewhere lackluster. He spent a lot of his time out of the cockpit with Robert Gaston where they watched and commented on the Westerhand duels for study.[3]

In June 3042, Richard participated in the challenge from the Iron Knights on the continent of Garringer to get revenge for his stablemaster.[4]

The Iron Knights won the fight thanks to the full-scale battles they were still used to. They destroyed the six 'Mechs belonging to Ikhwan Stables, but they didn't look much the winners, losing several MechWarriors, their commanding officer among them. Only MechWarrior Rukaya survived, and she was castigated from the stable barely two hours after returning to Victory City.

Richard O'Garrity died during the fight against the Iron Knights.[1]

BattleMechs[edit]

Richard O'Garrity piloted a Stinger BattleMech.[3]
