Ryan has always been an acquired taste, although he reeks of fun, most people avoid him due to the fact that his fun usually ended in trouble. After his mother cheated on his father and left them, his father practically acted like he didn’t exist so Ryan did the only thing he knew how to do to get attention and that was cause trouble. His entire teen years were spent in a cloud of drugs, smoke and booze, and before long at seventeen he had his first drug induced car crash under his belt. By eighteen he had been in and out of the ER multiple times and eventually got clean by the urging of his grandfather who was diagnosed with cancer. He was clean for long enough to begin taking over the family business once a law degree fell in his lap, and suddenly, Ryan had everything he could ever need because with his help, his grandfathers barely known business finally took off. Everything was well until that fateful night when his grandfather died. With no one to talk to and not knowing how to healthily grieve, he soon fell back into the use of oxy, but this time, he didn’t get away with it for long. This time, when he got picked up and called his father to bail him out, the older Kerrigan agreed, only if Ryan agreed to go to rehab.. and not being able to handle the dingy station any longer, he agreed.

Although it was a hit and miss for Ryan, he finally ended up clean, or as clean as someone of his status could be. Not everything with the male is cut and dry, and since his father hasn’t wanted to be his sons keeper, Ryan has been able to sneak usage a time or five with living in his own apartment. Since he doesn’t use as often as he would before, he’s been able to keep himself off the radar of everyone who would care. He still isn’t working, currently living off the money his father puts into his account every month even though that money should be his anyway. Sadly he recently, just in the last few days has been caught on camera, coming out of The Pedowitz Institute after a group session, and now the business owner is finding himself part of the talk of The Upper West Side.
Thanks for the pics B Hartford.
AMELIA SHEPHERD: Girlfriend. Returning from rehab with a pretty blonde on his arm was never Ryan’s goal but the two quickly bonded through detox and their black sheep statues. Although it was frowned upon, before the left the institute, Ryan made sure Amelia was his and although he’s hiding his current usage from her, he’s convinced that he has a future with Amelia, one way or the other.
ANDREW DELUCA: Drinking Buddy. When Ryan met Andrew he was in the middle of sobriety, at least from drugs. He met the younger man at a bar one night, and before long the two were meeting up frequently, to drink, chat and play darts. Since leaving rehab, he hasn’t been out, too afraid he’ll let himself slip in front of people who could tell the press on him, but from to time, he finds himself shooting the male Deluca a text.
JOSEPHINE WILSON: Ex-Fling. Just after starting to use again, Ryan found himself in Brooklyn, far enough away from the West Side that he didn’t have to worry, and hoping he could find himself a connection to the drug world, instead he found Jo Wilson. He began to sleep with her, figuring she could get him something good for cheap but that wasn’t the case. Once Ryan realized he wasn’t getting anything from her other than some lacklustre sex, he was quick to ghost her, not picking up a call since.
ATTICUS LINCOLN: Enemy. Although Ryan can easily make friends with a little charm, these two men never clicked. Since coming into Amelia’s life, he’s noticed the way Atticus looks when she’s brought up, like he’s in love with her or something and that? Doesn’t fly with him. Although he’ll put on that polite smile to make himself look good, there isn’t a second that goes by where he doesn’t want to punch the other male directly in the face. RYAN KERRIGAN is portrayed by MATTHEW ATKINSON and is written by ADIMIN KAT. He is currently taken.
