Richard is a bison with a black, curly afro. He wears a purple leather jacket, black jeans with chains on each side, and purple shoes.
Richard appears to be clumsy but caring overall. He easily becomes nervous, even to the point of flatulence.
Richard auditioned with the 1999 song "Butterfly" by Crazy Town, but was ultimately rejected from the singing competition due to his flatulence. Upon being rejected, he stomped in frustration, accidentally squashing Ray. He felt very bad for this and carried him out of the Moon Theater, passing gas with each step.
