Brief Character History

River Carpenter started his life as an abandoned baby left in the manager at St. James Church. Found by Cassie Cramer Carpenter, she and her husband, minister Andrew Carpenter, took the child in and made plans to adopt him. Although, they had some trouble when the biological mother, teenager Beth Garvey, sought to claim her baby, when the mother learned she was dying she gave River back to the Carpenters to raise. While River was still young his parents divorced and his mother was later sent to a mental hospital. After her release, River went to live with her.

Years later, a teenaged River returned to Llanview to live with his father. However, since he and Andrew repeatedly clashed, River went to live with Cassie's mother, Dorian. It was at this point, that River met and fell for Adriana Colon, the goddaughter of Dorian's former maid, Carlotta. He and Adriana got together and became lovers, but he messed things up when he cheated on her with Shannon McBain. River left town after being accepted at Juilliard.
