BiographyEdit

In Daughter of the ForestEdit

Richard is first introduced in Daughter of the Forest when he visits Harrowfield with his daughter Elaine, who is to be married to his nephew Lord Hugh of Harrowfield. He is very disapproving when he discovers that Red has brought a wild girl of Erin home with him, bearing a natural enmity for the people of Erin. He is instantly suspicious of the girl, who is called Jenny, and demands to know where she comes from and who her family is, for he suspects that she is a daughter of Sevenwaters.

On one of his trips to Erin, Richard meets the Lady Oonagh and agrees to help Oonagh destroy Sorcha and her garments in exchange for land in Erin. He tried to kill Sorcha while she was gathering starwort by having one of his men roll a large rock into the area, but ends up killing John instead. He also arranges for a fire to be set in the house which destroys one of Sorcha's shirts and her spindle and needle. He also arranges the strange happenings that Sorcha notices at Harrowfield, such as Alys's disappearance.
