Detective Richards was a detective-ranked international police officer of the Shanghai International Settlement police force.


Appearing only in The Blue Lotus, he and Brown had a phone call from J.M. Dawson upon hearing from his colleague W.R. Gibbons that Tintin was connecting the dots over the kidnapping of Professor Fang Hsi-ying. Richards and Brown arrest Tintin and then escorts Tintin from the International Settlement and turns him over to Japanese custody at a border post.
