Ryker Hawthorne, appearing as a main character in Season 1 of Criminal Case, is a detective working with the Nyctochral Police Department as one of the player's two primary partners throughout the season.


Hailing from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Ryker is a 38-year-old detective of the Nyctochral Police Department who is assigned to be one of the two partners for the player's career in the Nyctochral Police Force and worked as a marine prior to his tenure in the department. Ryker has brown hair in a caesar cut hairstyle and has blue eyes concealed behind a pair of black silhouette sunglasses. He also has a small scar near his right eye and wears the Nyctochral PD badge around his neck. Ryker wears a camo shirt with an unbuttoned black jacket over it with brown suspenders and a walkie-talkie. Other than that, he wears a silver army cap badge pinned to his left.

It is known that Ryker's favorite animal is a chameleon and his favorite food is nachos with beer. He is also known to be sensitive when it comes to certain topics and issues, and comes off as a tough guy but on the inside, he's a kind person. Additionally, he owns a pet chameleon.
