Cliff Richards was a newly-risen vampire whose body was possessed by the spirit of Richard Wilkins during his attempts to kill Buffy Summers.[1][1]


In 1999, the spirit of Wilkins had been possessing a dead crow when he moved to possess Richards while he emerged from his grave. In the vampire's body, Wilkins bit a young man passing through the cemetery, killing him, and tried to to kill Willow Rosenberg before she escaped.[1]

As Wilkins went after Buffy, the Initiative captured the vampire[1] and subjected him to vivisection. To escape the Initiative facilities, Wilkins left the vampire's body and possessed the corpse of a nearby demon, Hostile Six.[2]
