Biography


Mark Richir was a very promising raw talent from a wrestling school on Earth run by a friend of the GWF's Commando Sam. When Desolation Factor betrayed the FDF by joining Mangus' Alien Connection in 2112, Sam needed to fill the vacant tag slot in the FDF to combat the traitors and their new allies. He turned to his old friend on Earth who sent Richir and Guy Andrews to the GWF. They changed their names to American Guy and U.S. Male, collectively called Stars and Stripes. The name was chosen partly because both men are from the United States on Earth. U.S. Male is the more agile of the two with a higher degree of scientific skill than his partner. He brought a very emotional edge to the FDF's feud with the Alien Connection. U.S. Male's grandfather was a casualty of the highly-volatile Earth-Cygnus wars years ago. Their innate talent was more than enough to consistently out wrestle Desolation Factor en route to a victory over Alien Connection in 2114's Sudden Death conflict. Stars and Stripes moved to a feud with Colonizer Empire in 2115. 2116 saw the arrival of The Troubleshooters and the beginning of a long-term feud for Stars and Stripes. It also saw Guy begin to make known his desire for singles action. By the end of the year Guy was less vocal about his desire, but probably was still unhappy being tied to tag action. The next year saw Atys Tetrac return to his Manslaughter personna and leave the FDF to join the Troubleshooters. The next year Commando Sam retired leaving Stars and Stripes to find their own identity. They brought Latasha, another Earth native, on to the team. American Guy began to make overtures towards Phantasy in 2120. This led to increased tension between the two teams, especially after there was a valet swap. After American Guy sided with Sly Drury and the Outlaws and attacked US Male in 2122, U.S. Male rejoined the Federation Defense Fighters and prepared for what would surely be another emotional feud involving the former Stars and Stripes. Following a halfhearted attempt by Guy to get the team back together in the Outlaw Nation, the feud continued into 2123. As a member of FDF, U.S. Male was also a target of Iron Hand due to his support of Endgame. In 2124 Guy approached U.S. Male again about reforming their tag-team. They decided that they would team together as needed in order to go after Divided We Fall. They did not reconciled and to highlight that they were working together toward a common goal, they named their new team Common Enemy. Having been placed in the Infinity Challenge pool, U.S. Male hoped to lend his leadership abilities to whichever team chose him, and use the Challenge as a forum to show that he deserved to be back in the main event feuds in the GWF. For 2126 he has been placed in the FDF Challenge group. He made an immediate impact on the team when he convinced Phantasy to come out of retirement, an especially interesting move given their former animosity toward each other.
