"You want to know my story?
Most of it's locked up in some confidential file floating around the system, but I'll try to fill you in. I'm a murderer. Still want to know my story?
Not by choice. It's never been a choice. But right now I have the chance, between doing what's right, and doing what's easy.
My name's Ryan. You might have heard of me under another name some money hungry reporter conjured up, but I'm still the same person. My life story has nothing to do with my life, I'm just a pawn in someone else's chess game.
The game of finding my father."
Ryan was taken when he was younger and tortured for information on the whereabouts of his father. His father owed money to big people in the drug and money trades, and they wanted to know where he was. Since then Ryan has been held captive to do Mr. Azakasi's dirty work, forced to kidnap and murder people to tie up loose ends. He's been instructed to find people connected with his father and get information for Azakasi. If he doesn't comply with these terms, the he'll be executed. He thought it was worth doing all these bad things to live, until he gets instructed to kidnap and kill Hayley. The only one willing to see past the scars of Azakasi. Is Hayley the one who can free him for good? Or is she just the beginning?
