Ryan Talbot is both a former rival and boyfriend of Gina Diggers.
Ryan possesses Photographic reflexes that allow him to duplicate the same moves of anyone he see's in action even once, resulting in his base fighting skills come from Kung Fu movies. He put these skills to good effect, becoming a professional treasure hunter. While not on the level of Gina or her rival Penny in terms of archeology skills, his physical abilities allowed him to traverse dangerous tombs and other locations easily. As the rivals began finding more dangerous location, Ryan and the Diggers sisters began to team up with increasing frequency, and Ryan and Britanny Diggers would often match up against less ethical rivals like Irwin 'Peewee' Talon and his team of enhanced bodyguards, Daishi, Zelda, and Ionis.
Additionally, Ryan's a professional mixed martial artist, practicing against some of the best fighters in the world on Team Jet, alongside fighters like Ayane Anno 'Mistress,' one of his long-time friends, and more recently Jade-realm fighters Gar Silvear, Luan, and Carla, who he introduced to the fighting circuit.
Abilities and weaknesses
While his photographic reflexes allow him to copy any moves he sees from a single glance, and he is an experienced warrior, other fighters may still surpass him in their knowledge of when best to use particularly risky moves or other skills such as reading foe's movements, Ryan is aware of this lack, having observed such powerful fighters as Julia Diggers and her senior students, leaving him seeking for a master that can take him to the next level.
Additionally, while it was harder than simply copying the motions, after seeing the ninja Daishi use chi on several occasions, Ryan was eventually able to reproduce the ability and can now throw concussive chi 'fireballs,' giving him a powerful ranged attack that he's developed with practice.
