|“||I can't take this. It's right there!||”|
|— Richards running through a minefield [src]|
Richards joined Jaha on his mission to reach the City of Light with twelve other followers, including John Murphy. When half of the others turned back to return to Camp Jaha, Richards continued to follow Jaha.
Throughout the Series Edit
In Rubicon, Richards follows Jaha through the Dead Zone as Jaha tries to find where he crashed down. They spot what looks to be an abandoned cart and go over to investigate it. A Grounder pops out and threatens them. Jaha offers to help her with her cart. The Grounder, Emori, tells a tale about how she and her brother were on their way to the City of Light when they were attacked and he was killed. Murphy offers Emori some water and she tells them she can get them to the City of Light if they pull her cart. She thanks Murphy for the water.
Later, while Murphy is helping Emori with her cart when a rider appears, aiming a rocket launcher at them. Emori takes Murphy hostage and tells them to put all their supplies on the cart or they will all die. Jaha tries to convince them to work together but Emori tells them to back away from the cart and get on their knees. She then whispers something into Murphy's ear before she knocks him out. When Murphy awakens, he tells them that Emori had told him the City of Light was due north before she knocked him out. Jaha tells the rest of the group they have a choice to make. They can either continue on with him and Murphy to the north or they can return to Camp Jaha. Caspian and six others decide to turn back for Camp Jaha, however, Richards and Craig decide to continue on with Jaha and Murphy toward the City of Light.
In Bodyguard of Lies, Jaha is leading them through the Dead Zone as they search for the City of Light. Harris is telling cheesy bar jokes about Grounders, Reapers, Mountain Men and Arkers when he suddenly explodes, knocking everyone off their feet. Another person in their group scrambles away in terror and she quickly blows up, too. Jaha realizes they've walked into the middle of an unmarked mine field. They are soon trapped by a sandstorm and have to wait for it to clear while they sit in the middle of the mine field. Once the sand stops blowing, they see all of the footprints are gone. Jaha spots a glow from the sunlight reflecting off something in the distance and they believe they're getting closer to the City of Light.
Jaha begins to slowly make his way through the minefield using his cane to detect the mines. Murphy, Craig, and Richards follow behind in Jaha's footsteps as they slowly inch their way closer to the presumed City of Light. Richards gets impatient and takes off running toward it before Jaha tackles him inches away from stepping on another landmine, saving his life. Once they finally make it to the end of the minefield, they see the sign warning of said mine field on the other end. They begin climbing the sand dunes, trying to get to the City of Light only to discover it is a giant solar panel farm. Murphy is disgusted that there is nothing there but Jaha refuses to believe that's it. Jaha contemplates why all of the solar panels are still fine when the rest of the world is broken. Murphy says he can fix that as he throws a rock at one of the solar panels, breaking some glass. A drone suddenly flies out and pauses in front of them before taking off across the shore of a sea where a boat is conveniently waiting for them. Jaha tells them they are going to follow the drone and all four of them get in the boat and start rowing after the drone.
In Blood Must Have Blood (Part 2), Jaha, Murphy, Craig, and Richards are rowing across a sea in search of the City of Light. Craig stops rowing in frustration that they are not even sure where they are going. Richards spots land in the distance and they cheer. Their boat is suddenly knocked by something beneath the water, tossing Richards into the water. As Murphy tries to help him, a creature grabs Richards and drags him underneath the water, injuring Murphy in the process. Craig starts to freak out as Jaha yells at him to row. Murphy tells Jaha he can row just as Jaha tosses Craig into the water to the sea creature and the sea creature also swallows him whole. Jaha tells Murphy he did it because Murphy can row.
Richards appeared to be very loyal individual as he believed in Jaha enough to continue following him even after most of their group turned back. He showed impatience and anxiety when he raced across a dangerous minefield because he could not take the slow-going required to cross it safely.
