Skills & Abilities

Ryer, as a commander of an entire war theatre, is a shrewd tactician. He is also steady and decisive enough to make difficult decisions, such as sacrificing soldiers in an attempt to obtain victory. Finally, he is shown to be calm and composed under even the greatest stress, shown when he saw the Apsalus III's attack about to destroy his Big Tray he calmly responded to the automated warnings to evacuate, simply saying "It's too late for that..."


Ryer is a Federation officer in charge of the troops in Eastern Asia, where the Kojima Battalion is located. He makes his appearance later in the series once he suspects that Shiro has betrayed the Federation and distrusts him for the rest of the series. He even goes as far as to have Karen and Sanders spy on him, and sends out a sniper to kill Shiro when he deserts the Federation forces. He attempts to destroy the Zeon's base through the detonation of the nuclear engines of his own force's mobile suits. He also orders the destruction of the Kerguelen, occupied by many wounded Zeon soldiers as its taking off. Ryer is killed by the final blast of the Aspalus as it takes out the Big Tray he is on.
