    History: Ryder was born on the 6th of August in 1842, to relieved and happy parents who had been worried about conceiving. He is an only child. His Grandfather took special interest in him, regaling him with tales of places he'd been, and artifacts recovered, this would ignite a lifelong passion for History and magical, ancient objects. Attended Hogwarts in 1853, sorted into Gryffindor. Made quite a few friends, excelled in History of Magic and Charms, Made it through his 7 years with nothing particular to note. Upon graduation in 1860 he traveled, searching for more relics and finding lore, in 1867 while back home, a friend introduces him to Guinevere Rey, he is enchanted and begins courtship, while courting her, he is bitten by a werewolf, he tells Guinevere and she is not put off, his affection for her grew. A year later, December 3, 1868, they marry. Guinevere gives him 6 children, from that period Ryder is mostly away travelling, briefly staying home. Fortunately the director position for a Museum in London had opened, he applies early in 1886, seeing it as an opportunity to be closer to his family, and around history which is his second passion, he gets the position .
    Personality: Stubborn, brash, quick tempered, inquisitive. Loyal to his family and genuinely affectionate to his wife and children, with special regard to his youngest. Respectful and tolerant.
    Sample Roleplay Post: 
    Ryder knew he was away most of the time, he felt like most of the memories of his family were brief snippets that Guin filled him in on when he was able to talk, or could sit down to read a message. But, as he made his way to the home they shared in London, a brisk fog slowly dissipating around him, he had wonderful news to give to his wife. Earlier that morning he had went to the Museum of Magical Miscellany, a place he had donated some choice findings, and gave money to, and gave his name for the consideration of Director. It seemed fate had favored him, and a smile played on his face as he entered their home, eagerly awaiting to relay the happy news that meant he could finally be more of a presence at home.
