Abel Ryker

Abel was raised from a young age by his uncle in the Bracken Rig mining colony after his parents passed in a tunnel collapse. Scraping by on the hazardous mining rigs, Abel grew up hard and hungry for something more.

Vera Ryker

Vera Ryker was born into a once affluent merchant family in the city’s prosperous Emerald District. As a young woman, she defied her wealthy parents’ wishes by falling in love with Abel, a charismatic but rough-around-the-edges artifact hunter from the lower tiers.

Kalen Ryker

Kalen is a bright but impoverished 16-year-old living in the harsh underlevel slums of New Arcadian City with his mother Vera. His father Abel was an aspiring artifact hunter who got in too deep with some bad artifact running syndicates and went missing when Kalen was only 8 years old.
