Riley Vargas is a main character in the Frasier-based fan fiction spin-off Maris.
Riley is a something of a daredevil and Zoe Palmer's high-school sweetheart. He first appears at Maris Crane's mansion midway through Season 25, when it emerges that he and Zoe have rekindled their flame, leading to an unexpected pregnancy. Riley's reckless nature puts him at odds with Zoe throughout the season. After Zoe gives birth to their child in the Season 25 finale, Riley remains at the mansion in Maris' employ and after becoming a main character in Season 26, he pursues a new career as a personal trainer.
