Ryan Atkins is the pre-made townie father of Jett Atkins, and the son of Violet Atkins. He is usually seen performing jobs such as a bouncer, paparazzi or tattoo artist, though he starts off unemployed. He is disliked by his own mother. He has 2 skill points in Gardening. He carries a book in his inventory. Oddly, he dislikes children but wishes to have a big family. Another oddity is that Ryan is a young adult and his son, Jett, is a teenager. Therefore, Ryan must have had Jett very young.
Unlike many living family members from other games, he is a townie. This is a situation that often happens in Bridgeport. Even though Ryan has brown hair and brown eyebrows, he has black roots, which indicates that his hair may have been dyed.
