Background: A resourceful woman, though not much help in high tech situations. She`s a proven asset when called upon to use her knowledge of the rough terrain of her homeland, the Bahamas. Her family is one of the oldest in Jamaica, having been deeded the land by Cromwell for signing the death warrant of King Charles. For generations the family flourished, but mismanagment over several decades put them on hard times. Then came the hurricanes that dropped several tons of salt on the fields and made them unsuitable for farming. By the time her father came into his inheritance there was not much left but the house. That burned down when she was five, killing her parents. Ryder was raised by her Nanny and lived in the old house together, after fixing it up. Her Nanny died when she was fifteen and she has been living in the ruins ever since, making friends of the animals she encounters in the forest and the sea. There was a local official named Manders who was rumored to have taken an interest in her, but that interest was cut short when he died from an unfortunate accident: a black widow spider got under the netting of his bed, bit him, and killed him.
