Digivice White and Red
Birthday August 1st (Leo)
Ryan is an outgoing person with a very competitive streak. He's very much a "go getter"-- the more you tell him he can't do something, the more dedicated he'll be to doing it, just to prove naysayers wrong. His persistence can actually be a bit of a negative, as he sometimes has... let's say he has trouble taking a hint? He's not a total lunkhead, and he's not a creep or anything, just... yeah.
He's friendly and charismatic, but he has a shorter temper than he likes to admit he has, and when he gets frustrated, the last person he'll blame is himself. He can be self-righteous and defensive, and will stand his ground to the very last, even when it's obvious he's in the wrong or being a dickhead. Ah, well.
Ryan is an only child. His mother (a doctor) and father (who owns a surf shop -- you can see they were a bit of an odd couple) divorced when he was young, and he moved up to Atlas Park with his mother; he still visits his father in southern California relatively often. Shitomon is a familiar sight to both of them, and may as well be the family's second child.
He lives without roommates (except for Shitomon) in a small studio apartment.
-He and Natalie dated for about eight months, ending the December before the story begins. ... it did not end well for a number of reasons.
-He just finished his junior year at Northwest; he switched from a Criminal Justice major to English, which is how he met Natalie.
-He moved to Atlas Park he was four; despite this, he jokes that the surfer dude thing is in his blood, hence the constant wearing a shark tooth necklace and the tattoo.
-His mother pays for his apartment when he's not working during the school year, but he doesn't like letting people know that, because it makes him sound lame.
