Personality Edit

Rick is sarcastic and humorous, as shown by his disregard for Piscatella and his mocks of him. He is very flirty as shown by his treatment of Aleida when she is almost attacked by Hellman and his will to invite her out on a drink. He is loyal to his fellow COs, but loyal to his loved ones too, standing up for her and Daya. However, he has shown sexist and stereotypical tendencies. When the riot began, he stated inmates couldn't organise nor could women. He states that they'll beg for men to save them.

Physical Appearance Edit

He is a bald man, with a thick blonde mustache and goatee beard.

Biography Edit

Season Four Edit

He was likely the person onto the phone to Caputo when he requested backup after inmates escaped to the pool.

Season Five Edit

He arrives outside Litchfield to keep away civilians and reporters. Piscatella arrives and is quickly berated and mocked by Hopper and fellow agents and officers on the scene. He mocks the women in the riot thinking that they'll be unable to hold out the riot.

Season Six Edit

Hopper is a CO at Litchfield Max. He participates in Fantasy Inmate with the rest of the COs. He introduces Fig back around the prison. He starts to date Aleida after meeting her outside of the prison while she was trying to sell Nutriherbal products. He invites her to live with him and his grandma when she gets evicted from her apartment. She leaves after he confronts her when he discovers the drugs that she's been hiding in the Nutriherbal containers she gives him to take to work and smuggling them into Daya. After realizing that he's been stuck in the same place for years, Hopper tells Aleida that they'll smuggle in drugs for three months. They resume their relationship. Figueroa arrives at the prison asking to meet with Hopper (who panics, assuming she knows about his drugs), she makes him do the Prisoner paperwork onto the new system as requested by Linda. He is relieved which she assumes is because he loves paperwork. She later comes back into his office, revealing that MCC wants more violent inmates and that's why they're releasing the top 25. She tells him to stay up all night doing the paperwork and she'll pay for his dinner (for under $12) Hopper becomes paranoid when Piper shows him a packet of drugs and tells him that she'll find out who's bringing it in. To stop her from snooping around, Hopper arranges for her early release. ("Double Trouble")
