Ricky Howard is Dallas Howard's younger brother and Jesse's love interest. He is an enemy of Dale Collins, as Jesse shows interest in him. However, Ricky doesn't seem to hate Dale back. He worked as a pizza delivery boy at Pizza One with Drew as his manager.
Drew assigns him a delivery at Jesse's house. When he gets there, he realizes that Dale is also at the house with his two friends, Nick and Mark. They treat him badly while there, but don't bother him physically until Ricky is at his car, ready to leave. The three attack him, steal his keys, and throw them down the storm drain.
He gets home to find Dallas back from jail. Ricky asks Dallas to help get his keys back, and Dallas agrees. When in the sewer, they see the keys in the bottom of a pile of muck and when they attempt to reach them, find a Chestburster swimming in the water. Frightened, the two flee the sewers with Ricky's keys.
A while later, Ricky meets up with Jesse at the school's pool. However, Dale and his cronies meet them there and push Ricky into the water unaware that an Alien is lurking nearby. Jesse spots the Alien and yells for them to get out, but not before Dale's friends are killed by the Alien.
Ricky escapes and travels with his older brother in order to locate a way out of town. They decide to make their way to the hospital, where a helicopter is on the rooftop. However, during an extended melee throughout the hospital, Jesse is killed by the Yautja Wolf, pinned to the wall with a Shuriken. Ricky, enraged, attacks Wolf and a Warrior pushes him down an elevator shaft, causing him to drop his Plasma Cannon. Immediately afterward, he is impaled by a Predalien in the shoulder, but manages to get to the helicopter before the town is destroyed.
