Charlotte Richards is a defense attorney at Richards and Wheeler, a high-end law firm in Beverly Hills. She was married to Elliot Richards and together they had multiple children. Charlotte was having an affair with Brad Wheeler, her partner at the firm.
Before she was murdered, she was working on a sensitive case with the FBI to bring Victor Perez's cartel down. The only other person at the firm who knew the details of the case was Liam Pickering. When Charlotte went to meet their informant, Marco Sanchez, at Hotel Gleam, Pickering murdered both of them with a screwdriver, trying to frame Jimmy the Carpenter (one of Perez's men who, unknown to Pickering, was already dead). Chloe and Lucifer investigated the case with Dan's and Ella's assistance.
In "The Good, the Bad and the Crispy", Goddess departs Charlotte's body to create a new universe for herself in a void at Lucifer's suggestion. As Dan examines Charlotte's body, she awakens, surprising Lucifer. It quickly becomes clear that Goddess resurrected the human Charlotte when she left and Charlotte shows no memory from the time period Goddess controlled her body. She is then taken away by paramedics who believe her fall from the Santa Monica Pier is the reason for her confusion.
In "They're Back, Aren't They?", Dan reveals that Charlotte doesn't remember him or "their" relationship, devastating him. Lucifer tries to reassure Dan that Charlotte's amnesia is not his fault.
In "Chloe Does Lucifer", as part of her new outlook on life where she does good, Charlotte decides to take a job as a prosecutor putting criminals in prison instead of helping them get away with their crimes.
