Character Bios - Red vs Blue

Red Vs Blue's Private Church
Red Vs Blue's Private Church in his old Marathon armor
Name:Private Leonard (L.L.) Church
Armor:
Cobalt, until dying in episode 8, then white from episode 10 onward as a ghost, or whatever color the person he's possessing happens to be.  Then he went back in time, and his armor was blue and green.  Now he's back in the future, and he seems to have settled in a cobalt-coloured robot.
Current Status:Unknown

Church was a little spoiled as a child.  He grew up in Texas, and was used to getting exactly what he wanted, which shortened his temper significantly.  He was also raised by people who knew what they were doing with their lives, and who worked hard to progress in the direction they'd chosen.  Private Church has very little patience with stupidity, or with people doing/saying things that just don't make sense.

While back in Texas, Church dated Tex.  Unfortunately, his overall bitter demeanor wasn't exactly the most attractive to her, and she went to find companionship elsewhere.  This only made Church more bitter, and caused him to be a little less trusting of people in general.  He still loves her though, and is trying to get her back.

Before being stationed in Blood Gulch, Church found himself on Sidewinder, the ice planet.  Standard practice there was to bitch about the cold and wait for some action, so it came as quite a surprise when Tex was hired to murder his entire team in front of his eyes.

Actually, it's probably a very good thing for him that he got stuck in Blood Gulch after that with the rest of the blues.  During his time there he's realised that in general, things don't make sense, so there's no point fretting about them.

Being so bitter all the time meant Church was left alone a lot, and that his favourite colour is green.  Being alone so much, he got used to it, and is now capable of going through extended periods of absolute solitude without any ill effect to his psyche at all.  It was thus somehow fitting that the only places he was ever sent to were out of the way, isolated, and hard to get to.

At least, that's what he remembers...

good writing

very nicely done. A great homage to my favourite character.

Totally agree.

I completely agree with this. It is obvious that Church is the cause of everything in Red vs Blue, and I think you thought about this for quite a while before submitting this.

Boo-ya!

That's Church in a nutshell. Clearly the best (and main) character in the show. Ah... so many sardonic phrases, so little respect of those around him. That's right, dear Church. Live the dream.

Spelling Error

Eighth paragraph, "Once Church had left the robot Lopez's body so his team could persuade it to fix itself, Lopez did just that, and the ran away." Third to last word should be 'then'.

Other than that this was great. I've only just now stumbled upon this portion of the site, I don't think people give you enough credit for it.

Church And Tex

I highly agree with Church wanting to win Tex back! I'm sure everyone knows the only reason that he's going with Wash is because he wants to find Tex, Because he loves her. Personally and I think that Tex secretly loves Church too, but would never admit it. Anyways, nice job. One more thing, I saw someone on One profile saying you should show this stuff to Rooster Teeth. If you watch the credits on the Red vs Blue Reconstruction DVD it says in the special thanks Rooster Tooth.com.
