Originally from Brazil, Richard Myer(リチャード・マイヤ) is a Capoeira master who used his skills to entertain the nightclub crowds.
Story (in the Fatal Fury Saga)
Richard Myer is one of the first fighting game characters to use Capoeira.
While he had fun entertaining the masses and loved the recognition for it, he felt he had to move on. Moving to the United States, Richard made his home in Southtown. It was here he opened the Pao Pao Café, a nightclub reminiscent to those of his native Brazil. Unlike the bars in Southtown, Richard would not tolerate any discord caused by criminals and thugs in his club, literally kicking them out if they do.
When Geese Howard held the King of Fighters tournament (in Fatal Fury, Richard entered to promote the Pao Pao Café. While he accomplished this goal and beat several fighters in the process, he was beaten by the Lonely Wolves (the Bogard brothers, Terry and Andy, and Muay Thai champ Joe Higashi). Richard was a good sport about losing and the Pao Pao Café became Southtown’s ideal nightclub spot.
The club also became a hot spot among fighters where they can spar against one another or just hang out. This was evident when another King of Fighters tournament was held by Wolfgang Krauser and all the fights were shown live in the café. The profits from that venture were so high, combine with the club’s ongoing popularity, that Richard had enough money to build a second Pao Pao Café in Southtown.
During the grand opening of Pao Pao Café 2, with his Capoeira student, Bob Wilson, acting as the manager, the place was wrecked by the Jin twins, Chonshu and Chonrei. As Bob went after the Jin twins for what they had done, Richard stayed to rebuild the second Pao Pao.
Richard has now devoted his time to entreating the masses and garnering attention for both Pao Pao Cafés. He has made many friends in the fighting community ever since.
