Ryder Lane was born in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was born into a upper class family, never had to worry about money. He lived an exciting childhood, always had something to do, his father was a real estate agent, and was rated the best in the area. His mother was a mortgage broker, she wasn't rated the best in the area, but she was in the top 5. His mother would always be very upset once a month and Ryder didn't know why, he didn't have or see any issues within his family. When Ryder became older, he found out why his family had so much money, but not high paying careers. Yes his dad would sell houses every now and then, but he wouldn't always bring a big check in, same with his mother. His father asked him if he wanted to come with on a business deal in Chernarus, and implied they will stay for some vacation time as well. When they arrived in Chernarus, Ryder's father began to tell him this business deal, is actually a cocaine deal, this is where the family gets all the money from.
They arrive in Chernarus and Ryder was told to go to the hotel and his father will be back after the deal. A few hours past and all Ryder started to hear was screaming outside, he began to look outside and saw nothing but people loading they're cars and driving off fast, and crowds of people running down the streets. The hotel began to flood the halls to rush out of the hotel, Ryder became curious and turned on the news and witnessed a news helicopter view on tv of crawling and running, bloody and gashed up humans, that didn't come off as human, they were jumping on people and tearing them apart. Ryder then panicked and took off to fend for himself, he is out on a mission to find his father, and hopes one day to return home with him.
