Personal History:

Born in Copenhagen in the early 1920's, Tennyson Ryans lived with his mother and father as an only child, attending school at an accelerated pace due to his interest in Psychology and Triage. After completing his Compulsory education, Tennyson left for America with his family in the mid 1930's, facing harsh backlash for his accent and mannerisms being distinctly unamerican in the eyes of his peers.

Upon turning 18, Tennyson enrolled in the University of Cambridge at the urging of his mother, he was accepted on scholarship narrowly due to his exceptional school record, but faced more ridicule from his peers than he'd imagined possible. From his first year, he'd become a recluse. He spent hours upon hours a week to learn an American accent, mastering it for the most part by the end of two weeks. The lessening of the harassment did nothing to draw Ryans from his reclusion, as his studies managed fine in seclusion.

Graduating with his Master's in Psychology, Ryans left to return to his home in Copenhagen. However, he found many of his subjects to be textbook cases. He'd chosen Psychology for the in-depth analysis of the human psyche, not to deal with general depression. In 1944, Tennyson made the decision to move to Italy. His subjects were far from textbook as he found himself analyzing those affected by war, racism, facism and death. He truly cared for his patients, yet it still wasn't enough. He wanted more from his career. By 1951, Tennyson had made a name for himself as a brilliant Psychologist. He'd treated veterans, victims of war, holocaust survivors, he saw the world through his patients eyes.

Soon after, his work had caught the eye of a blooming organization- The Foundation. He'd been offered the chance to apply his psychology to the real world instead of a small office, and he promptly accepted.
