Personality & Character
Ryer is a shrewd tactician. He is steady and decisive enough to make difficult decisions, and willing to sacrifice soldiers in an attempt to obtain victory. Additionally, he is shown to be calm and composed under even the greatest stress, shown in his final moments: in response to the automated warnings to evacuate, he simply replied "It's too late for that..."
Ryer first appears as a member of Shiro Amada's court martial, after he is suspected of betraying the Federation. Although Shiro was ultimately acquitted, Ryer continues to distrust him for the rest of the series, even going as far as to order Shiro's teammates Karen Joshua and Terry Sanders Jr. spy on him; when Shiro deserts, he orders a GM Sniper to execute him. He attempts to destroy the Zeon's base through the detonation of the nuclear engines of his own force's mobile suits, drawing ire from Kojima. He also orders the destruction of the Kergeren, occupied by many wounded Zeon soldiers as its taking off. Ryer is killed by the final blast of the Apsalus III as it takes out the Big Tray he is on.
- ↑ Some official sources give his name as Ethan Liar; however, the spelling used in the official English release, Isan Ryer, is what is used on this wiki.
