Richards served as a part of the California Army National Guard.
Private First Class Richards is one of the soldiers stationed inside the safe zone where Madison's neighborhood is located. He is one of the guardsmen to help detain Griselda Salazar and Nicholas Clark and bring them to the medical facility for observation.
After receiving a distress call, Moyers and his men drive to the building overrun with Infected. Richards proceeds into the building with his fellow Guardsmen.
Richards, Castro, and Cole exit the library, and Richards helps Travis into the vehicle, saying that Moyers "ain't coming".
He, along with Castro, leave Travis a few blocks from the Safe Zone, and leave for San Diego.
