Corporal Richard L. Jenkins was an Alliance marine under the command of Captain Anderson, and a member of the Normandy's crew.
Jenkins was born in the rural district of Eden Prime, and dreamed of visiting more urban areas before he decided to become a marine, stating that "even paradise gets boring." After enlisting, he wanted to prove himself as a notable soldier and test himself in combat. He envied Commander Shepard's impressive record. Jenkins also admired the Spectres, though his views of seemed to be coloured more by vids than experience. He was especially impressed by Nihlus Kryik, after hearing the story that Nihlus once took down a entire enemy platoon single-handed.
