Name: Ryan R.
Sign: Tiger for Chinese Zodiac, Taurus for Western
Alignment: Lawful Evil
182cm (...I've been in Taiwan over 6 months straight, I can't think in English measurements anymore); black hair that reaches mid-back length. 100kg, although looks closer to 85, with a lot of the weight in leg muscle development. Nearly-black eyes.
Distinguishing features: Almost always wears eyeglasses. Black, half-frame Ray-Ban frames with rectangular lenses. The lenses are safety glass with no prescription. His vision had been corrected surgically prior to the outbreak.
Attire at game start: Basic black BDU; combat boots with kevlar toe and heel; lightweight modular load bearing vest; 'web armor' around forearms, biceps, thighs and calves; fingerless gloves with weighted knuckles. His trademark safety-glass eyeglasses.
Vehicle: Modified 2003 Cadillac Escalade ESV (Black)
Personality: Nihilistic. Often amuses himself by taking a subject and boiling it down to as close to the root cause (as he sees it) as he can get, and almost invariably comes to sides of human nature that most don't like to admit exist. Very devoted to the ideas of personal freedoms, living as close to the philosophy of 'you're free to do anything you want except take freedom from others' as he can (although he errs on the side of 'do anything you want' rather than 'don't take freedom from others'). Studies Zen (primarily because speaking from a Zen mindset pisses people off, and that amuses him greatly). Has a large number of high-profile contacts in the private sector, including people in FN, HK, Unertl, C-More, Beretta/Burris, Magpul, TDI, and even Blackwater. Prefers to fight either in close, or through a sniper scope, partly because there's a lot of artistry involved with either method, and partly because he just prefers to see his targets' faces as he kills them. An early supporter of the ideals of Neo Sparta.
Background: Born outside the USA in Taiwan, and raised in that Eastern culture for most of his early childhood (which explains the apathetic undertones in most of his personal philosphy). Studied and trained in various martial arts since age 7, including Krav Maga, Jeet Kune Do, American Kenpo, Iaido, and several styles of Kung Fu. Started training himself seriously in firearms use and tactical movement at age 13, ever since his first exposure to airsoft. Studied military history from the present day, all the way back to the Greek Hoplites, but his favorite era is the Three Kingdoms era of ancient China. Has also made a point over time to invite every single person he knows in town to firing ranges, and subsequently encouraging them to purchase their own firearms, helping them choose which one to buy based on their budget, and then even training them in the use of their weapon. Upon the zombie outbreak he took refuge in his company office building and warehouse, in an area of town away from residential neighborhoods. The warehouse happened to store most of his extensive firearms collection, as well as prototype optics, and samples of completed optic equipment that the government would apparenly rather not let into civilian hands.

-Ammo crate-sized containers, two on each side of the passenger area, stacked one on top of the other (bolted together). The top ones open upwards, and contain ammunition (one on the right has two compartments of 9x19mm and .45 ACP ammunition that take up half the container, the other half is one compartment of 12 gauge shells. The one on the left has the same two compartments of 9x19mm and .45, but the other half is two more compartments with 7.62x51mm and .300 Win Mag).

The seats of the vehicle have been removed to make room for the containers, which can be used as seating.
-Effectively a chest-of-drawers in the rear, nearly flush with the rear hatch, with drawers that can slide out into the vehicle, or out towards the back with the hatch open. They contain a set of lighter clothing, a seat of cold-weather clothing, mag pouches and web gear for changing personal attire to be more optimized for carrying other weapons, a set of prototype 'HUD-projection' night vision goggles (slightly bigger than paintball goggles, with lenses in the frames, and a wire leading to a processor pack. Uses I-Gen digital night vision technology), a bow that's just simple enough to use arrows that he might make out in the field; one drawer with 8 extra MP5 9mm mags, and 8 extra HK45 mags; and one drawer with a laptop and Iridium 9505A in case with solar charging panel and magnetic mount antenna for vehicle. The top of the chest functions nicely as a desktop for the laptop and Iridium 9505A, using one of the ammo crates as a seat.
