Private Richie Wallin was a Gear soldier in the Coalition of Ordered Governments army. He was the son of Lena Wallin and the adopted son of Dizzy Wallin.


Pendulum WarsEdit

Wallin fought in the Pendulum Wars as part of the 25th Sherrith Cavalry.[1] After the Armistice between the UIR and COG was put into effect, Wallin was given leave and returned home to Mattino Junction after stopping at a base in New Sherrith.[2]

Emergence DayEdit

"I'm sorry. Richie Wallin. They've logged his COG tag."

Six weeks after the armistice, the Locust emerged and attacked all of Sera. Mattino came under attack as well, and the COG did its best to try to evacuate the city. However, most civilians were unable to leave, and Wallin was killed defending the city, and his mother Lena was murdered by the Locust.[3]
