Richard Capp is the fourth of the five children of Consort and Contessa Capp. Singled out for abuse by his domineering mother and mean-spirited father, Richard grew up resentful, wild, and cold. He fell in love with a girl named Anne and married her much too young. They had two children, Tybalt and Hermia, whom Richard resented for coming between him and his bride. By the time Anne died, when their children were still young, she and Richard were no longer on speaking terms.Richard, in the blue pajamas, surrounded by his most recent family.

Anne's death plunged Richard into despair and he abandoned his children to be raised by their grandparents. He was found dead a few months later and his father blamed the Monty family, adding fuel to the two families' longstanding feud. But Richard returned many years later, as a vampire. He and Romeo Monty nearly tore the town apart in a war between their two vampire gangs, and Richard finally died in a fight with Tybalt, now a grown man and a father himself.
But that death wasn't final, either. Because of a deal his granddaughter made with death Richard, along with the rest of the townspeople who had fallen, came back, this time as a mortal man. Richard has been on a long, slow road to redemption ever since.
Richard has seven children and another on the way. He is currently married to Sinead Patrick Capp. His children include:
Tybalt Capp, with Anne.
Hermia Capp Monty, also with Anne.
