was born in the United States in 1974.
He was a kid
from the streets whom Duncan befriended
after catching him breaking into
his antique store in 1992.
He died for
the first time after being shot in a robbery
attempt, in 1993. His first
sword fight was against Immortal terrorist
Annie Devlin, an old friend
of Duncan's; Richie won the fight, but
couldn't bring himself to kill her.
Some months later, he took his first head:
bounty hunter Mako, an old acquaintance
He tried to
live, according to his own words, a "real
life" muscling his way onto an
European top level motorcycle racing team, Saracen,
in 1995. However,
after few races, he and his teammate Basil
Dornin was involved in an accident
and both died in front of the crowd that
attended the race in Paris. Richie's
promising career was then finished.
He had his
head accidentally taken by Duncan MacLeod in
1997, because his friend thought
he was the demon he was fighting — Ahriman,
who was able to take the form
of any people, including Duncan's friends
thought one of the good guys would lose.
