Alec Ryder is the father of Sara Ryder and Scott Ryder. He is the original Pathfinder for humanity.
Born on Earth in 2129, Alec Ryder says his love of new frontiers was fostered by a childhood in the Sierra Nevada. According to his service record, he joined the Alliance military and was eventually assigned to Jon Grissom’s historic expedition through the Charon Relay.
His experience made him a candidate for what would later be known as N7 training back on Earth. Alec continued military service, most notably on Sanxi in the First Contact War against the Turians.
Assigned as a military attache to the Citadel in the late 2160s, Alec became interested in artificial intelligence as a means of human advancement. His pursuit of this illegal technology led to a dishonorable discharge from the Alliance military.
Contacted by the Andromeda Initiative, Alec found a sponsor to help complete his work. SAM is the product of that research, assisting not only the initiative, but Alec’s new role as a Pathfinder.
