History: Dr. Rieper was born to wealthy parents on August 23, 1952. His father ran a defense contract company, having various ties with the Defense Department and, allegedly, numerous intelligence services. Despite his young age, his parents would travel for business across the country, often internationally in Europe or Asia.

Due to his family's business and connections, he'd been sent to various prestigious schools but would move from state to state. At 14, he insisted on residing permanently at Michigan to retain and advance his education.

Due to his family's business, he'd been sent to various prestigious schools but would often move from state to state. At the age of 14, he insisted on staying permanently at Michigan to retain and advance his education. His parents agreed, and he moved in with his uncle.
His uncle's work as a psychological operations officer in the United States Air Force inspired Dr. Rieper to pursue a psychological career. Before his uncle was shipped to Vietnam, he disciplined and properly taught Dr. Rieper in psychology and aeronautics and later applied those disciplines in his education.

By 16, he graduated high school and enrolled at the University of Michigan the following year. On September 3, 1968, his uncle was killed in combat in Vietnam. Dr. Rieper took over his uncle's house but moved closer to the university in 1969. He graduated with a B.Sc. degree in Psychology, further pursuing a Ph.D. in Social Psychology in 1973, and graduated in 1979. Despite his interest in continuing a psychological career, he moved to Massachusetts to pursue a B.Eng. degree in Aerospace Engineering the same year, and was recruited by the United States Air Force Research Laboratory, in 1982.

He was transferred to Tonopah Test Range, Nevada, to develop stealth technology and other sensitive black projects at the time. His involvement in various black projects, including the Advanced Technology Bomber program, caught the Defense Department's attention. He was reassigned as head of a military project codenamed "Icarus" by 1984.

However, the Icarus project faced scrutiny in 1985 when the Defense Criminal Investigative Service (DCIS) arrested several project members of espionage for the Chinese Government, specifically the PCAAO. Project Icarus was soon disbanded as a result, and Dr. Rieper was transferred to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in March 1985. By 1987, he was appointed as Acting Director for the Defense Sciences Office. He was initially asked by then DARPA Director, Dr. Robert C. Duncan, to be the permanent Director. However, he turned down the offer due to leaving the organization and pursuing employment elsewhere.

By 1988, Dr. Rieper had resigned as the Acting Director and from the organization after several Authority recruiters contacted him for his experience and outside knowledge on aeronautics and psychology. Despite concerns raised from the Authority Central Intelligence (ACI), Dr. Rieper was recruited and became the Lead Researcher for Aeronautical Development at [REDACTED].

In [REDACTED], Dr. Rieper was commended for his work on the development and research of [DATA EXPUNGED]. As per recommendations from several Directorate members, Dr. Rieper was promoted and reassigned as the Assistant Director for the Office of Analysis and Science in [REDACTED].
