Sir Richard was one of the Knights of the First Crusade who, with his two brothers, set out to find and protect the Holy Grail of Jesus Christ, which they did, in the Temple of the Sun in the Canyon of the Crescent Moon in Hatay.
Richard died on the way of old age and his body was placed with his shield, one of two markers revealing the Grail's location, in a tomb in the petroleum-filled catacombs of Venice, Italy where he would lie undisturbed until 1938 when Indiana Jones and Elsa Schneider arrived to retrieve a rubbing of the inscription engraved on the shield.
Richard's body and shield were left to the fire as Jones and Schneider made their escape.
