Not much is known about Ritchie's early life.
Ritchie was involved in a case with John in Newcastle, England. Ritchie assisted John in expelling a demon from a young girl named Astra. The case resulted in Astra being damned to hell, along with John's soul. Ritchie suffered trauma from the incident, and now has trouble sleeping.
After discovering that Furcifer was responsible for the attacks on Liv Aberdine, John decides to seek help from Ritchie. John visits Ritchie in his office, and the latter is initially hostile and uneasy towards him. Ritchie starts to ridicule John for the case in Liverpool and wishies it was him that was banished and not Astra. Despite this, Ritchie is convinced to help John send Furcifer back to hell. After Furcifer had been trapped inside a demon seal, John initiates his plan and Ritchie shuts off the city's power grid, which weakens Furcifer. After the demon had been banished, Ritchie drives Liv back home.
