He does not respawn when killed.
Even though his armor implies that Ricard was from Astora, he is likely a member of Balder's royal family. Ricard journeyed through different lands for a long time until he eventually Hollowed in Lordran.
Ricard wields his Rapier and Buckler for close-range combat, and a Longbow for distant targets. He can parry and riposte attacks. His attacks deal fairly low damage, giving the player a lot of room for error.

- Since Ricard's Rapier says that he "wandered the lands in a fateful ill-conceived journey" and is praised for (unknown) exploits sung in monomyth, it's possible that Ricard left his kingdom to adventure.
- Ricard might have been the son of Undead King Jar-Eel due to the similarity between their titles, which could track Ricard's origins back to the four kingdoms. However, that wouldn't make any sense in the final game.
- Ricard is implied to be the son of Knight King Rendal.
