Scott Ryder is a member of the Ryder family and the male playable character in Mass Effect: Andromeda. He is the younger twin brother of Sara Ryder and son of Alec Ryder. He is initially a recruit on the human Pathfinder team. He is approximately 22 years old.
Background[edit | edit source]
Born the younger Ryder twin on the Citadel space station in 2163, Scott grew up knowing the station was a gateway to the entire Milky Way. In his orientation interviews, he claims this fostered a longing to step through those gateways to adventure.
With informal training aided by Alec Ryder's N7 background, Scott joined the Systems Alliance military and was assigned to an outpost near Arcturus Station overseeing Relay 202. A primary route to Arcturus, this mass relay leads into contested space and has an unsavory reputation. Scott was needed to protect Arcturus, but also had a "front row seat to everyone else going off to fortune and glory."
When Alec Ryder was dishonorably discharged due to his AI research, internal memos show that this also effectively ended Scott's career, making Andromeda a more attractive option for the adventure he sought.
