Ryan Burley, 24 years old happily married the love of his life, Maria and started a family. Two years later his wife gave birth to his Daughter Isabella. Before the apocalypse he worked in Building and Construction. His wife worked in an office in the same field and it was love at first sight. They moved a year after Isabella was born to Chenarus to get away from the constant terrorist threat that came with living in london. With his wife originally from Chenarus it seemed like the next best thing He did everything in his power to keep them alive but eventually 2 years into the apocalypse they were killed by Bandits as they moved to a new settlement. Ryan now dangles between who he used to be and who he has become. He could as easily kill you as save you. The only thing that keeps him on a thin thread of reality is the photo of Maria and Isabella that he keeps with him. Without it, the rot of madness would descend.
Ryan is not a bad guy in nature and would help everyone he possibly could but after that day something switched in him. A hint of betrayal, a scent of deceit and he will blow you away without a disregard for who you are or were. His own mind became a prison of memory of the past that he could not remove for fear of losing his mind.
