Richard Rahl can harm innocents. That's why the human shield thing didn't work. (Remember an "innocent" is actually a noncombatant)

Gah, you have a point. In his moral philosophy, however, he is not harming those folks, the people using them as shields are. Maybe remove that disad or put some kind of limitation on it. In all other circumstances, Richard would never actively harm innocents.

But, you are right. Your turn again.

This is Rick Castle, but I don't think you're supposed to post new ones until someone solves David's*. At least according to my understanding of the rules.

However, there should be a limit on guesses/time limit before the poster that posted the stats just says who it is. Otherwise, we might drag on with trying to determine an obscure character.
