Rick  was the leader of a gang of teenage boys.
For some time, Rick had been terrorizing a boy named Mike. Rick gave Mike the nickname "the Mouse" because of his timidness. On day, Mike ran into Slimer who was looking for a job to prove his worth to the Ghostbusters. Mike paid Slimer to be his bodyguard and Slimer scared the Rick's gang away. In retaliation, Rick invited some Barrow Wights up to the surface world to get back at Mike. The Barrow Wights turned on both Mike and Rick while many of his gang ran away. Fortunately the Ghostbusters, who were looking for Slimer came in the nick of time and trapped all the Barrow Wights. Mike and Rick called a truce.
