    Richard has light reddish-brown hair, green eyes and a freckled complexion. He stands just above average at five feet, eleven inches and has an average build. His clothing is of the highest quality and often in muted colors. He is right handed.
    1857:Richard is born the first born and heir of Harold & Millicent Gladstone on the eve of September the 10th.
    1859: A sister is born in the form of Rowena. Richard is much too young to care much about the addition to his family, especially since the attention to himself is not much different than it had been previously.
    1861: Lenora is born and proves to be the final Gladstone child.
    1864: Richard shows his first signs of magic. The day is much celebrated within the family.
    1869-1870: A late birthday means that Richard starts his time at Hogwarts a couple of weeks shy of his twelfth birthday. He is promptly sorted into Hufflepuff. In September of 1870, Rowena joins Richard at Hogwarts.
    1871-1872: Richard picks up Arithmancy, Care of Magical Creatures & Muggle Studies as his electives. In September of 1872, Lenora joins her siblings in Hogwarts.
    1873-1874: Richard's school supplies letter comes with a shiny prefect badge, much to Richard and his family's delight. Richard takes to the leadership role like a fish to water and does quite well.
    1875-1876: Richard graduates from Hogwarts and despite the fact that he had no real need for a job, he begins an internship in St. Mungos within the Magical Bugs department.
    1877: Richard graduates from his internship and becomes a full healer. When Hogsmeade is opened, he opts to stay on at St. Mungos.
    1879: Rowena secures a courtship and is soon wed to her beau and leaves the family home. Richard is quite happy for her but also a little lonesome with one less family member puttering about the household.
    1880: Scarcely a year after Rowena was wed, Lenora joins the world of wedded people by marrying her own beau.
    1883: During a visit to Hogsmeade, Richard unknowingly ingests some of the amortentia laced tea. He becomes quite flirtatious with a maid and even manages to steal a kiss. When he comes to his senses, Richard is quite embarrassed by the whole thing and avoids visiting Hogsmeade for some time. He also never drinks tea for quite the long while.
    1884: Richard is promoted to Assistant Head of the Magical Bugs department.
    1886: Now that he is 28 and quite wealthy within his own right along with being a heir, Richard has entertained ideas of finding a suitable bride. 
    1887: The new year starts off on a bright note as Richard is promoted to Magial Bugs Healer-in-Charge. And at the age of 29 too! Thanks to Emma's Winter Lab win \o/
