Richard is a child who Ernest Keigel (the Time Ranger) meets when he travels back to 1175. The child, presumably a son of a noblewoman from medieval England, explains that in his time period, "dragons roam the land, and we are all infested with clichés." He also listens as the Time Ranger embarks on a monologue describing the future. His mother seems to be very sexually engaged with the king. Despite apparently living in medieval England, both Richard and his mother have poorly-concealed American accents.
