Personality: In his spare time he can be funny, relaxed and generally quite lazy but during missions he becomes very focused and takes a 'to-the-book' stance. He is very knowledgeble about subjects that interest him. He will almost always follow orders to the best of his ability even if it is against his moral code; however he would always question the CO about the mission if he feels that it is morally wrong to find out if it is strategically justified.
Background: When in secondary school, Riley did the bare minumum in most subjects just to get acceptable grades. He never got on that great with his parents or brother, Gregory, but they supported him in whatever he wanted to do and he was very appreciative of this. When he was sixteen, he passed his GCSE's with six C's, two B's and three A's and then went to the army college of Harrogate instead of staying on at his school for Sixth Form. There he proved an exceptional cadet and he found a life there that he would be comfortable with.
He wanted to push himself to his best abilities so he applied for the Royal Marines almost as soon as he went through the passing out parade (where he had attained the rank of Junior-Sergeant) and was found to be able enough to join. His first tour of duty took him to Afghanistan when he was twenty-two and he proved a steady personality under fire and was awarded with the rank of Corporal. After his tour he was going to go into officer's training, under the suggestion of his CO, but was introduced to the Stargate Program and offered the position as a support member for the British teams. He accepted eagerly, realising that this was a once in a lifetime opportunity. He was taught to pilot a Goa'uld Cargo ship by a Tok'ra who didn't want to give away his cover and rescued his team from their brief capture by Jaffa and was awarded the rank of Sergeant and the Operational Service Medal. When the disaster at Earth happened he was at the Beta-site. He was eventually transfered to the Alpha-site. He does not have the Ancient Gene.
