Richard Strickland is an executive who works at a secret government research facility in the 60s. He was in charge of studying a mysterious amphibious creature that was held captive in the facility.

General Hoyt: “”Decent”? (Pause, walks around) A man has the decency not to fuck up. Now that’s one thing, that’s real decent of him. But the other kind of decency? It doesn’t really matter. We sell it, but it’s an export. We sell it because we don’t use it. 36 hours from now this entire episode will be over. And so will you. Our universe will have a hole in it with your outline. And you will have moved on to an alternate universe. A universe of shit. You’ll be lost to civilization. And you will be unborn. Unmade. And undone. So go get some real decency, son. And unfuck this mess."
