Ryan grew up on the outskirts of Milton, a small city in West Virginia that can pretty much be described as the middle of nowhere. Ryan lived a boring early childhood, but by the time he went to high school it got a bit more exciting. Seeing as there was nothing to do in the town the students would throw parties in the middle of nowhere and get shitfaced before either passing out or trying to wonder home. He fell in with a bad crowd, had a record before hitting the age of eighteen, and made it through high school by the skin of his teeth.
After high school he jumped from job to job whenever he got bored, doing everything under the sun from construction, to healthcare, even retail for a bit. He eventually saved enough money and bought a one way plane ticket to Europe, following the same pattern of jumping around and not staying in one place for to long. This eventually got him to chernarus where he worked in elecktro for a bit until he cut open his shoulder on the job and was taken to the hospital. A cute nurse stitched him up, gave him some meds and sent him on his way a few hours later. A week later he would find himself in a bar getting shitfaced like he did back in his teenage years. One thing lead to another he got into a fight before subsequently being thrown into a drunk tank until the morning.
After being released he went back to his small apartment and switched on the news and heard about the attacks in Severograd. As weeks went by and the country went to shit he found himself in cherno and met with rose the nurse that had patched him up all those weeks ago. They exchanged names and were walking through the streets when infected attacked the two of them. Ryan killed one while rose shot the other letting the whole town know where they were and more importantly the CDF.
