Richard White is a vampire of uncertain origin, though it is known that he has been active in New York City and the surrounding area for some time now. He is a member of the O'Donovan bloodline, a primarily Irish-American family of vampires which operates throughout the Northeast of the former United States and Canada. Thus far, it is known that Mr. White has his hands in art and arms smuggling, including sending weapons to the IRA. Of course, this is unlikely to be the full extent of his "business," legitimate or otherwise. He is most often seen wearing a khaki suit, a panama hat, and a smug expression.
