Ryan allied with a mirror version of Marco as the new crew of bullies as a child.
As he grew older he became more distant and quiet.
It turns out he had sociopathic tendencies, something increased by Miroslav tormenting him with ghosts as a teenager. He became the serial killer known as the Michigan Slugger.

Unless he was taken away to Arcadia by Feral Tom, Lord of Cats.
