In 1995, Richard and Dominique are married. In November of the same year, she gives birth to the first of three children, Yancy. In 1998, Dominique gives birth to Raleigh and later, Jazmine.
Some time after the first Kaiju Attack on August 10, 2013, Richard's wife is diagnosed with cancer from smoking.
