Jesse Ritter-Byrne

xxxxx“If I can't make the world a better place, I at least want a syndrome named after me.” – Jesse Ritter-Byrne

xxxxxJesse is an upstanding citizen whose shady past is best left where it belongs: in the past. All anyone needs to know is he's a family man and an altruist. He came to Fallcoast to take a job as a social worker attached to the court of appeals. Then he continued his (totally legitimate) education to get licensed as a clinical therapist.

xxxxxRecently, Jesse Ritter-Byrne was in the news for a trumped up murder charge. The real culprit was found (a stalker who framed Jesse out of some weird sense of obsession) and Jesse was set free. Unfortunately, the stigma soured his job at the clinic he worked at, where the murder took place, and he ended up resigning.

xxxxxNow he's the head of the Radion Heart Medical Clinic. Management may not have been his life's dream, but he's still helping people, in a way. And he gets to tell people what to do. Win-win.

xxxxxOh, and he's over 160 years old and doesn't look a day past 25.

RP Hooks
  • Radion Heart Medical Clinic: He's the head of a medical clinic.
  • Homeless Shelter: He volunteers at the homeless shelter.
  • Therapy Dog: He has a therapy dog named Molly who he brings around to make clients feel better.
  • Family Man: He's got a husband and daughter.
  • Pretty Boy: And damn, he knows it.
  • PTSD: Some parts of his 160+ years left a mark.


  • Purified: Doesn't age, doesn't get sick, heals in a heartbeat. Not a bad gig.
  • Hard to Kill: And he doesn't stay dead.
  • Spirits are Jerks: He's part of the Hisil's ecosystem. He's even got a summer house there.


  • Romanian: From 1853 until around the Great War, he and his family lived in Bucharest.
  • The Great War: He was in Romania and England during World War I.
  • City of Lights During the Interwar period, Jesse was a regular in Paris' cabaret scene.
  • Godwinned!: History took him through World War II, and no one had a good time during that fiasco. He ended up in a prison camp in Odessa.
  • Comrade: After WWII, he was a KGB agent. Sorry about Cuba, Guy. Though officially the USSR was never there.
  • What a Riot: He spent the 90s in LA as a conman and petty criminal. You don't want to know what he'd do for a Klondike Bar.
  • 5th Avenue Accessory: He spent the 2000s as a friend with (financial) benefits to NYC's lonely, rich, and afraid-to-commit types. Emphasis on rich.
  • No, You're Crazy: He spent a few years in a state hospital in Mississippi before he came to Fallcoast. It's how he learned all about social work and behavioral therapy.
  • Everything is Okay: He's settled down, gotten married, and become a happy and productive pillar of the community. All that stuff from the past? Water under the bridge. Surely it'll never come back to bite him in the ass.




  • Free: We'll always have that one time you punched me to death. Miss you, bud.

Lay me gently in the cold dark earth
No grave can hold my body down
I'll crawl home to her
