Elias Ryker is a Bay City Police Department officer and the lover of Kristin Ortega. A childhood friend of Mary Lou Henchy, he was personally affected by her death and went beyond the call of duty, kidnapped senior sys op and CTAC administrator Leonid Kye Harris believing that he had changed Mary Lou's religious coding to prevent her from revealing who killed her. Harris was subsequently killed by Dimi 2 and Ryker was framed for the murder, leading to his imprisonment. Ryker's sleeve was later leased by Laurens Bancroft to house Takeshi Kovacs as an act of pettiness because Ortega failed to solve his murder.
