Rich is a capable fighter with high growth potential with sword and spear arts, as well as being one of only a handful of characters with proficiency in all spell types. His HP is average but he has high WP and SP growth.
For all the above reasons, Rich can be developed into any kind of fighter needed and will likely dominate in the category for his sections of the game. It is advise to give him Life Water and possibly a few support spells regardless of whether you want him to specialize in Weapon or Spell Arts, due to several of his scenarios involving character who start off significantly weaker than him.
His ideal roles will likely depend on what the player chooses to develop him as, but due to the high amount of duel boss battles within his scenarios, it is advised to give him Heavy Attack or Heavy Spell to buff his damage potential.
