A mundane face with intricate knowledge of small unit tactics, corporate strategy and magical threats. His grasp of fashion, "high art" and the subtle intricacies of "good taste" allow him to mingle effectively within the highest echelons of political, corporate and military society while remaining equally comfortable in the shadowy presence of syndicate members and street samurai. He has adopted the "Centurion" street-name in a bid to disguise his S-K origins and imply his military training derives from Ares.
- Redeem himself in the eyes of Saeder-Krupp but uncovering information sensitive enough and actionable enough to reaffirm his loyalty in the eyes of his former superiors.
- Make a name for himself in the Shadows, earning enough reputation to one day earn a place in S-K Prime or as a J for his parent corporation.
Formerly a Intelligence officer in the Saedur-Krupp military, Ryn was disgraced in February 2020 when he failed to predict an impending attack on S-K financial assets in the United Kingdom by HBR-sponsored shadow runners. Although his successful defence of the facility prevented the loss of valuable financial data, a falsely planted data-trail suggested that his failure to predict the attack was less the result of a faulty-interpretation of signals intelligence and more directly he result of corporate espionage and his apparent intent to defect to HBR.
An internal investigation concluded that Ryn had either a: made a serious error of judgement or b: deliberately compromised operations as part of covert preparations for a subsequent extraction, only to reverse the decision at the last possible moment. Consequently, a decision was made by Ryan's superiors to have him permanently removed from the equation. Only the intervention of his parents, influential members of the Central African Division, spared Ryn's life. He know exists in a state of "Indefinite Suspension without Pay", and has taken it upon himself to make a new life for himself in the Shadows of Seattle.
For the moment, Ryn and his family believe that he can redeem himself in the eyes of S-K if he can only make use of his shadow-runner status to uncover something valuable enough to regain the trust of his parent corporation. He acknowledges that any future he had as a Risk Analyst in his home corporation is gone for good, but he hopes he can redeem himself by uncovering valuable material in the shadows that might allow him to "come in from the cold" as a Shadow Asset, possibly becoming one of the companies many expendable "Mr Schmidt's." Whether or not this is wishful thinking remains to be seen, but S-K is not known as the most forgiving of corporations. It's just as likely that he may one day becomes just another snack for Lofwyr.

Corporate SIN and Corporate Pariah: Despite being on "permanent suspension," James Ryn remains a Saeder-Krupp citizen. However, his fellow citizens regard him with distrust, suspicion, and even open scorn.

ContactsRyn suspects that Juliette Burns, a friend of his mother and a some-times on-again, off-again lover may have been in someway responsible for his fall from grace. He knows that Amrei Veidt has been assigned to keep an eye on him and ensure he does not proceed any farther "off the reservation" than he already has. Chloe Green is a distant relation, and he suspects that their continued friendship is just one reason why it was so easy for his corporate superiors to suspect him of espionage.

James Ryn (S-K Full Corporate Citizen: "Permanent Suspension").
Ryan Craig (R4 UCAS. Concealed Carry, Driving, Firearms, Private Investigator).
Appearance: A clean-cut, well groomed human male in his early thirties, Ryn is in decent shape, and speaks English with a refined and cultured accent that ensures he stands out on the streets. He is usually appropriately dressed for the occasion, whether that being a back alley meet or a high finance dinner, and strives to blend in to his surroundings as much as in humanly possible. He carries himself with something of an openly military bearing and the authoritative, almost aristocratic demeanour, of someone used to issuing instructions.
Dressed appropriately for the occasion in which he find himself. In tactical circumstances, he wears a black armour vest over dark gray urban camouflage clothing.
An Early Imperial Roman Centurion.
