The eccentric man that Shogo Okiie ran into at Ho'onji Bridge.
Richter is actually a private investigator with an office in Ota City, Tokyo.
After taking on a request from Harue Shigima to investigate the unsolved kidnapping and murder of her son, he gets caught up in the events surrounding the Rite of Resurrection.
* * *
Once a police officer, Richter was wracked with guilt over the police's inability to help all those in need, and quit the force to start his won private investigation firm. However, his softhearted nature leads him to take on too many cases and has put his office in dire financial straits. How he is still in business is a mystery, with some whispering that a wealthy patron is keeping him afloat. Richter studied alongside detective Jun Erio at the police academy.
Somewhat surprisingly —given his outlandish clothing and mannerisms— Richter excels at covert investigations and tailing his targets. He proudly refers to himself as an investigator extraordinaire, though that only ever succeeds at impressing himself.
Richter's biggest source of happiness is nuzzling his pet female albino parakeet —Ernestine— which he keeps in his office. He also enjoys collecting Mocking Bird stickers, a popular line of merchandise featuring birds inexplicably dressed like delinquents, and can be frequently sighted searching around town for them. While out and about, Richter typically leaves the office (and, more importantly, Ernestine) in the care of Amamori, a junior high schooler who volunteered to assist Richter after being involved in a previous case.
