Rich Guy was the man that appeared at the beginning of 'The Shadow of Courage.' He was very old, and his only "friend" was his butler, Jennings. The man liked looking into space at the stars. Since the rich man fired Jennings, his butler, and so the butler threw his stuff to the floor angrily. The rich man collapsed on the floor and called Jennings for help because he was having a heart attack. The cruel butler, to get revenge, hummed and walked out of the room, leaving his employer inside the astronomy room. The man, off-screen, then passed away on the floor. His shadow then left his body and went to go antagonize Courage.
