Richard Harrow is a former Army sniper whose face was severely disfigured in World War I. He wears a mask attached to a pair of glasses that is designed to match his skin tone and cover up the fact that much of the left side of his face is midding.

Harrow has a twin sister, with whom he was extremely close growing up. She cared for him after his disfiguring injury, but he left her home as soon as he was able, claiming he was no longer able to hold any strong feelings toward her after having experienced the horrors of war.

Richard meets Jimmy Darmody at an Army hospital in Chicago and, after sparking an instant kinship, invites him to return to Atlantic City and join his bootlegging operation. Harrow began work as a hitman and hired muscle for Jimmy's bootlegging enterprises, immediately demonstrating his loyalty to Jimmy and becoming protective of him and his family. Richard's sharp-shooting skills, not surprisingly, come in handy as Jimmy exerts his authority around town.

Despite his exterior, Richard is a romantic who keeps a scrapbook that contains images of domestic life and love clipped from various periodicals, lamenting a life he worries he'll never have.
