    Terry Richards comes from a long line of pureblood supremacists, and took to the ideology like a fish to water. He didn't seem to be all too concerned about the opposition, believing himself superior to others. At some point after graduation from school, he married Ava while still in VMU.

    It was a loveless marriage. His wife soon found herself in a very short lived affair with Seth McCarthy, after the woman's wife had passed away. Once pregnant, she quickly came to realize Seth would not be there for the child in any way; Terry ultimately agreed to raise the kid as his own, as Isolda was going to be a pureblood like they were. After settling on a sizable monthly fee, the couple swore secrecy as to their daughter's true parental lineage - it wasn't in their best interest for the world to know anyway as her half-sister was a Veela.

    They raised Isolda quite strictly, having high expectations of her and manipulating her social life  and daily routine as they saw fit. Several years later, they had Meadow; it made them relent from the abusive patterns as they had a new child to take care of - one that was his - and this one appeared to be quite frail and in need of care.

    After college, Isolda broke free from the Richards' grip and was, subsequently, disowned. Meadow got the brunt of this betrayal as Terry's and Ava's paranoia increased - they couldn't have the girl head in the same direction her sister had gone, and for Terry, he couldn't handle losing his own flesh and blood. They've become overprotective of the girl up to the point her future career was spelled out for her, and whenever she displayed a talent for Healing magic (much like her older sister), she was consequently punished.

    As of early 2019 he found himself involved in a legal battle for his own child's guardianship against Isolda; not only that, but it seems that she's figured out who her true father is, having gained an unimaginable amount of leverage over the couple. The danger of losing his own *true* daughter has enraged him. What is he capable of so to keep her, even if against her will?

    • Has he found happiness in his arranged marriage? Has he stayed loyal all this time? Or has he followed in the footsteps of his wife?
    • He, as well as his wife, is an active enemy of the Parsons family. Given how entrenched they are in the Ministry and that the Parsons couple are both rising stars within it, what steps will Terry take to get in their way? And how will he prevent the fact that Isolda is Evelyn's sister to come to light?
    • Meadow is his only biological daughter, and as such, his need to shield her from the world dwarfs that of what he once felt for her sister. Now that he's faced with a custody battle with Isolda over the girl, how is his mindset heading into court?
    • He and Ava have recently given a few reprieves regarding their treatment of Meadow, such as allowing her to stay in school during breaks. Are they trying to win her over or has she successfully convinced them on her own?
