Male Human Mechanic
Richard Teac, Ricky to his friends, is an old friend of Shannara’s from years back, both from school and a family friend, in fact her Uncle help set him up in business with his Auto shop when he left college. He has since paid him back for the initial investment but is very thankful for the help and always looks after his own. He thinks of her more as a sister actually and would likely take one for her if the need arrived! He knows of her double life but would never reveal it to anyone. He keeps her on the road and sends potential “Mr Johnson’s” her way when he hears of any and they seem genuine. His Auto Business is basically legal and most of the work is normal repair and maintenance but does have a large back building that can be used for the “discreet” jobs that sometimes comes his way. Through this he has a few contacts but is generally considered small time on the underground scene and so has limited contacts, The ones he does have speak highly of him though and he is slowly getting a regular clientele looking for a new “safe house” for repairs when the heat is on elsewhere.
Ricky is always looking out for Shannara’s best interest, not wanting to actually try and run her life though he does this by keeping her vehicles in tip top condition and trickle feeding her “safe” jobs to keep her busy and away from other likely more dangerous jobs. He has secretly fitted trackers to both her car and bike. however, due to her skill and know how with electronics she does know about the trackers but has not let on to Ricky that she knows as yet, knowing that he done it in her best interest and figuring if he thinks he is keeping a sly eye on her this way he will stay out of possibly more problematic area’s.
