Nothing is known about Richards' life before or after the outbreak. It is possible he lived in or near Alexandria before the apocalypse.
Richards is seen on the wall performing guard duty as Deanna Monroe and Maggie Greene are seen digging, presumably working on an aspect of the town's expansion. Moments later, a Molotov cocktail is thrown at him by a member of the The Wolves. He falls off the wall and is seen burning to death, while another wolf is seen climbing up it. Later, his charred body reanimates and is stabbed through the head by Maggie. Maggie comments by saying, "We're still here", to which Deanna replies, "Not all of us."
This list shows the victims Richards has killed:
- Numerous counts of zombies.
- Aaron (Indirectly Caused)
Aaron left his backpack at Del Arno Foods, which causes to lead the wolves to Alexandria.
- The Wolves (Alive)
As the Wolves begin their attack, they throw fire bombs at the walls. One of the bombs hits Richards and explodes, setting him ablaze. He falls to the ground and burns to death.
- Maggie Greene (Zombified)
After the attack ends, Maggie finds a burned and undead Richards, and stabs him in the head.
- Richards was portrayed by Darian Fisher and Dalton Louis Simons was chosen for the stunt double as Richards.
