Rhys Tregarth was born in Land's End, Cornwall, England. Like Liam MacLeod's father, Cadan Tregarth was a fisherman. Rhys' mother was a teacher and homemaker. From them, he gained a love of learning and of the sea.
After completing his basic education, Rhys' grades won him a position at Oxford, where he read history and law. Rhys' grades were exemplary, and he was recruited right out of school by Scotland Yard. The work was challenging and exciting. Rhys was initially content to steadily climb through the ranks.
Unfortunately, Rhys became tangled up in a police corruption investigation. When he got too close to the core of it, he was framed. To avoid publicity, Scotland Yard suggested that he retire and move elsewhere. Angry and a bit bitter, Rhys relocated to America and settled in Miami, Florida.
Rhys' law practice was soon doing well, and he found himself enjoying life in sunny Miami Beach. One day, Liam MacLeod walked into his office and hired Rhys to handle a minor real estate dispute for him. The case was settled quickly and to Liam's benefit. After four or five more such jobs, Rhys was hired to exclusively handle all of MacLeod Enterprise's legal business. With his background in law enforcement, Rhys proved extremely useful and competent in all areas of MacLeod's businesses. The two men quickly became best friends, and Rhys Tregarth became the man that most people dealt with initially.
Rhys Tregarth holds the title of Chief Operations Officer for MacLeod Enterprises. He is not a man to be crossed when it comes to protecting Liam MacLeod, his family, and his business holdings - no matter which side of the law they fall on.
- Low voice, clear, rather soft-spoken. Trace of Cornish accent remains.
- Rather unremarkable in appearance at first, medium height, slender form, small-frame.
- Very piercing blue eyes, alive with intelligence.
- On meeting, most people are struck by the force of his personality, belied by his average looks.
