Richard was recruited by MiB when he "saved him" by touching him, offering him water and releasing him from his chains. MiB, then solidified Richard's belief that he was in hell, by giving him a knife to kill the devil, Jacob.
Jacob dunked him in the ocean, told him he wasn't in hell, gave him life eternal by touching him, then offered him a job. He gave Richard a white rock to give to the MiB.
He was claimed by both but chose to go with Jacob.
