The Mummy

Main article: The Mummy (1999 film) set in 1923
Rick is an American serving as an officer in the French Foreign Legion. He promises to take Evelyn Carnahan and her brother Jonathan Carnahan to Hamunaptra, the city of the dead, and back again. However, Evelyn reads from the book of the dead and unleashes the immortal spirit of Imhotep - once a High Priest to the god-kings of Egypt, now resurrected in his mummified form. Rick then decides to take a modicum of responsibility for the situation and help them; however Evie is eventually captured. Rick then goes to rescue her and gets in a fight. He kills many mummies then finally fights Imhotep. After Evie makes Imhotep mortal, Rick impales Imhotep, killing him. They then have to escape as the building collapses. The movie closes with them riding off on camels with gold unknowingly hanging in the saddle bag.

The Mummy Returns

In The Mummy Returns Rick is now married to Evie and has a son, named Alex. Sure enough, Alex is kidnapped and they must go on a quest to get him back and stop Imhotep. But Alex has activated the bracelet of Anubis, which has now awakened the Scorpion King (who is going to wipe out the world) so in addition to saving Alex, Rick O'Connell must also save the world yet again.

In a conversation with Ardeth Bay, he mentions that he was "in a Cairo orphanage" where he acquires a scorpion shaped tattoo. How long he was there is undetermined as he speaks with a distinctly American accent.

The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
Main article: The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor set in 1944
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor will initially take place in ancient times in China and follow the background of the film's villain (Jet Li). The film will move forward to a post-World War II setting.[1] The film will take places roughly 11 years after the previous film, in which Rick and Evie's son Alex is now 21 years old, and has followed his parent's footsteps as an archeologist and adventurer. It appears that Rick and Alex have become estranged over the years.


Rick has used several firearms of various kinds. Here is a list of some.
