Rick Ross (Baroud I)


Richard Ross III was secretly groomed by his father to take over the leadership of CRIMEN when World War II began. A dedicated patriot, the young man joined the R.A.F. and, because of its unquestioned bravery and exploits, rose to the rank of Captain. He was captured by the Germans, and interned in the Oflag (prisoner camp) of Horn. The story of his incredible escapes and subsequent missions during WWII became legendary. He was the first Ross to be nicknamed Baroud.

In 1944, Rick Ross assembled a team known as The Partisans to prevent the Germans'  "Grotesques"  from stopping the D-Day landing.

After the war, Ross took over the leadership of CRIMEN and rebuilt the criminal empire. He married and fathered two children. The oldest was a daughter named Rowena (nom de guerre Miss Choc) who was groomed to the leadership of CRIMEN. The youngest was a son,Rick Ross IV, who was infiltrated inside C.L.A.S.H. where he functioned as a mole. Rowena was killed by his arch-enemy, Jean Brume. Rick Ross III unmasked himself before Frank Universal, and was presumably killed during a subsequent battle with Jean Brume.

His son, Rick Ross IV, a.k.a. Baroud II, has now taken over the mantle of CRIMEN leadership.
