Richard Alpert is a long-time inhabitant of The Island and is the second-in-command of The Others, a group known to the DHARMA Initiative as the "Hostiles." From his first appearance in 1954 to current events on the Island, Richard perpetually appeared to be in his 30s or 40s (making him at least 80 years old), though his hairstyle and manner of dress change depending on the circumstances on or off the Island. In the outside world, he has presented himself as a recruiter for Mittelos Bioscience.
