Ralph was the neighbor of Casey Jones in the Dreamwave Productions comics. his son constantly wants him to play with him, but he constantly yells at the kid that he's too tired to. When Casey heard him yelling at the kid as he was about to head back to his own flat, he busted in and saw him about to hit the boy. He also recognized Ralph's wife as the woman he had saved from some Purple Dragons earlier in the day. Much to Casey's disappointment, Ralph's wife called him a lunatic.
Ralph began to rush Casey and was ready to put up a fight. Despite his behavior toward his family, Ralph was protective toward them, and they toward him as well. Ralph's son even called his father a hero for chasing Casey off.
Casey couldn't believe the hero worship that Ralph's son had toward his father, even though it mirrored his own relationship with his father.
