Personal History:

Born in Copenhagen in the early 1920's, Tennyson Ryans lived with his parents, Wendel and William Ryans, along with his sister Amity, 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.

Melody, a journal gifted to him by his mother became active in the mid 1930's upon arrival in America. At first Tennyson seldom noticed. As the journal began to bond with him, it became more and more apparent he was becoming a different person. On his 17th birthday, Tennyson engaged in combat with his sister Amity- prompted by his parents lack of acknowledgement of his talents and attempts to impress them. The fight was promptly ended by Wendel Ryans, as she remained a partial host of Melody at the time. Wendel opted to end Tennysons use of the journal by severing the link between them, but was unable to they two had become linked beyond separation.

Upon turning 18, Tennyson enrolled in the University of Cambridge at the urging of his parents, particularly his father, 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, but for a different reason. Tennyson had in fact had the displeasure of being the physician for Shiloh Connor, a traumatised anomaly being groomed for employment in Marshall, Carter and Dark. Due to his failure of this diagnosis, followed by being held at gunpoint- Tennyson left for Italy.

Once settled in, 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.
