Captain Ochre is the code name that the Spectrum Organisation has assigned to Richard Fraser, a former Inspections Commander of Detectives in the World Government Police Department, or WGPD, who became the only Spectrum senior officer without an advanced academic degree after he staged his own assassination to conceal his entry into the Spectrum ranks.
Rick Fraser in MichiganEdit
A native of Detroit, the seat of Michigan's Wayne County, Rick Fraser never developed a liking for high school. Instead, he preferred to construct plastic models of aircraft. As a result, even though he learned to fly in his teens, he graduated with too few credits to enroll in any colleges or even enlist in the World Army Air Force.
Officer Fraser, WGPDEdit
It was upon his graduation from the WGPD Police Academy and his receipt of the badge he carried for years afterwards that Fraser discovered that he possessed not only an interest in law enforcement but also a knack for the same. He did not need long to earn his detective's shield, and he rose quickly through the ranks to become a highly acclaimed detective. ("Fanon" sources describe him as growing his bushy brown beard and his heavy brown moustache during this period.)
Fraser rose so quickly through the ranks that he did not need much time to become a captain of detectives, then the Inspections Commander of the entire United States "Precinct" of the WGPD. During this time, organised cybercrime godfather Patrick Donaghue (who later became Captain Magenta of the Spectrum Organisation) became a thorn in his side.
Captain Ochre, SpectrumEdit
When approached to join the Spectrum Organisation, Inspections Commander Fraser found himself forced to turn down the post of Supreme Commissioner of the WGPD in order to accept. Before he joined, however, he went out with a bang--quite literally, staging his own assassination in a car-bombing on the streets of Unity City, capital of the World Government of Earth. Smuggled out of Unity City, he submitted to extensive cosmetic surgery and (according to "fanon") shaved off his thick whiskers to alter his appearance. Those done, he resurfaced to assume the code name of Captain Ochre of the Spectrum Organisation.
