Mists of Pandaria
Riko has yet to earn his 'name name' among the hozen of Grookin Hill, and is volunteered by Chief Kah Kah to act as guide to the Horde scouting party. When Sergeant Gorrok is attacked by the Jade Witch, Riko flees with Shokia and Kiryn. Riko soon develops romantic feelings for Kiryn, and when she is trapped by the jinyu, defies Shokia's orders in order to save Kiryn's life. When Riko frees Kiryn from the jinyu nets, he requests a kiss as reward for his actions. Kiryn agrees to grant this reward, but when she removes her mask, Riko is shocked and confused by her ravaged, undead face, and flees, leaving Shokia and Kiryn without a guide. However, when Kiryn finds herself again trapped and at the mercy of an overwhelming number of attackers (during the attack on Pearlfin Village), Riko appears from nowhere to save her once again, declaring that he doesn't care about her "weird dead face".
Siege of Orgrimmar
Riko took part in the Siege of Orgrimmar, fighting for the rebels. After battling their way into Garrosh's inner sanctum, Riko, along with other members of the Horde (including the other members of Nazgrim's party), held off waves of Kor'kron for the adventurers. In return, he asked that he be allowed to take credit for killing Garrosh Hellscream in order to impress Kiryn.
It is unknown whether he was working with Darkspear Rebellion during the events of Escalation or changed his allegiance from Garrosh to the rebellion during or shortly before the Siege of Orgrimmar.
