Colin Kirkpatrick (June 10th, 1971) was born in Rising Hope Alabama. His parents were well off thanks to investment banking. He and Gus Vance were friends growing up. Colin graduated high school with honors, and finished college in 1992. That's when he took a job at his father's investment firm. But in 1995 the White Staff Group opened up an office in Rising Hope. So Colin took a job there making $30k/year. It was less than he was making before, but had room to move upward. It was there he met Marilyn Reese. The two started dating, and a year later got married. A year later they had their one and only daughter, Sophia Kirkpatrick. Colin was a good husband and father. In 2005 he was promoted to boss at the insurance company he was working at. At times he can come off as arrogant, but he does make time for his wife and daughter.
