Richard (リチャード Richādo): is a former military officer and guard at Valhalla Prison before he was transferred to become the deputy supervising officer of Building 2. Born into a family of a long line of military service, Richard grew up to follow in their footsteps while being surrounded by the strict rules and great expectations that would shape him into the man that he's today. He studied Master's in Politics and War at the Swedish Defence University before entering the military service, here he'd go on to become a military officer and met Harald Helvegen, the man who'd later become the Warden of Valhalla Prison. Richard would continue to serve the military for a couple of years before being offered a position as a guard by his former superior and comrade, to which he accepted Harald's offer and started working at the Scandinavian prison. After having been employed for six years within the prison, Richard was transferred to become a guard at Nanba Prison, eventually working his way up to being promoted to a deputy supervising officer.
While being a guard at Valhalla Prison, Richard earned a reputation among the prisoners and guards alike as an enforcer, known for taking it upon himself to set things straight should a troublesome situation arise, to which the inmates starting calling him a Lawbringer (法律家 Hōritsuya). While the alias itself brought him more respect along with his colleagues, many of the inmates were easily annoyed with only having him around as they believed him to be too picky. But his title never followed its way with him as he started working at Nanba Prison, but instead, it was replaced with Lynx (山猫 Yamaneko) since it was the largest feline animal within his country and lion wouldn't suit a newcomer of lower rank at the time. This also follows the common theme of titles given to many of the guards within the prison.
