He grew up in Upstate New York with his mother and father, who ran their own small business together. He was an average, though popular, student, excelling more in the wrestling ring than in the classroom. He was a charming, sociable young boy, with a knack for hijinks. He was arrested twice for vandalism before he entered high school, and caught his fair share of truancy charges. Yet no one could speak too harshly of him, because Robin’s good nature belied any perceived ill intentions.
When Robin was 17, his mother passed away. His father, devastated, sold the store and descended into sloth and depression. Robin struggled to finish his high school career, abandoning thoughts of college in the face of his family tragedy. He began working construction part-time to support himself and his father. He grew contemptuous of his father’s grief and stagnation, and the two men drifted apart after Robin graduated. When he turned 21 Robin joined the army as a way to finance his unplanned future, to find adventure, and to abandon small-town New York.
For three years he progressed through the ranks. He never found the camaraderie of the military particularly appealing, though he was quickly promoted to corporal due to his ability to command. He was already an imposing figure, and did not hesitate to physically correct his officers. His misconduct did not go unnoticed, and he faced disciplinary action several times for starting fights with his fellow soldiers and with civilians. When one incident resulted with Robin striking a superior officer, he was granted a General Discharge from Service. Robin doesn’t hold a grudge, and sheepishly considers himself lucky for not receiving a Dishonorable Discharge.
His wrath is saved for a man named Christian Sanderson.
The thing Robin cherished most since the loss of his mother (and, through her death, his father), was his lady friend, Molly. They met just before he enlisted, while she worked at a tailors to help pay for school. She helped make for him the first and only suit he’d ever owned, and fudged the records to make it on the house. Overcome by her sneakiness as well as her sweetness, he fell head over heels and promised her everything. In return she stood by him throughout his enlistment, his discharge, and his ensuing crisis trying to fit back into the world.
One evening when Robin came home he found Molly, sobbing and bruised, speaking hysterics and nonsense. Christian Sanderson, a former classmate and sometimes friend of Robin’s had come by asking for money, and when she refused him he reacted violently. Sanderson had beaten and raped her, then stolen money from the house before running off into the night. Robin was enraged. Without another thought he hunted Sanderson, first to his home and then to a poker den they’d frequented together. He beat and stabbed Sanderson nearly to death before the police arrived. When they tried to arrested Robin he resisted, fighting to continue unleashing his fury on his former friend. He took a bullet to the thigh in the struggle.
Robin was charged with attempted murder, and in light of the circumstances of his discharge he was sentenced to ten years in prison.
After eight years he made parole. He’s just left, finding work in Seattle with a construction company that wouldn’t look too hard at his record. He’s a little startled to find out how much the world can change.
