Biography

Rick was a government agent of the NSA (National Supers Agency), which was meant to clean up any Super accidents. He is a very good friend of Bob and Helen Parr. He was even present at their wedding, back in the glory days. At the beginning of the Super Relocation Program, Rick took care of locating the superheroes under civilian identities.

Due to Bob Parr's constant need to help others like in the old days, resulting in trouble, Rick had to pay people to keep things quiet, erase memories and relocate the Parrs, so much that it was getting very exhausting and too expensive for the government. When Bob angrily threw his boss through five walls, Rick had no choice but to leave Bob to fend for himself. But he did offer one last chance for relocation, which Bob turned down.

When Bob, his family, and Frozone defeated the Omnidroid v.10, Rick drove them home, informing them that he and his colleagues had frozen Syndrome's assets and would be ready with handcuffs if he appears anywhere. Bob asked if the Supers can come out of hiding, to which Rick replied that the politicians would figure that out, but commended them for doing a good job.

In the short movie, Jack-Jack Attack, Rick was interrogating Kari McKeen, who was looking after Jack-Jack Parr. She had a bad time trying to look after him when his powers awoke. She eventually got fed up when Syndrome arrived, claiming to be the replacement babysitter. Rick asks her if she told anyone; she answered that she told her parents, but they thought she was joking. She really wanted to forget everything, in which Rick was glad to do, placing a plunger on her head to suck her memory.

In the second movie, Incredibles 2, Rick was interrogating Tony Rydinger. He really wanted to forget everything, in which Rick was glad to do, placing a plunger on his head to suck his memory. While Rick was dedicated to Elastigirl and Mr. Incredible, he was ultimately answerable to the U.S. government, who had had enough of Rick's protecting the Incredibles. The bank robbery conducted by the Underminer, the Incredibles failure to capture him, stop the robbery and prevent colateral damage was the final catalyst, the government ultimately shut down the Superhero Relocation Program, essentially leaving any heroes not acclimated to civilian life to finally fend for themselves, with the warning of legal action if they caused any further damage. Since the Superhero Relocation Program was dissolved, Rick Dicker no longer was needed as a government agent, and was forced into retirement. He did, however, manage to get a last minute approval before the program's termination to relocate the Parrs to a motel and pay for two weeks' lodging. Helen and Bob thank Rick for all he has done for them.

Rick Dicker was seen one final time in the film, wearing more casual clothes and cleaning out his office. He apologized to the Parrs for Violet's dilemma, saying his mind wipe of Tony worked too well.
