Ryan is a man with swept hair. He is first seen wearing a doctor's suit.
Ryan is a generally charismatic man, for creating the Aurora Society. He is also ambitious as he aims to revive the dead. Ryan is scintillating and lively when it comes to talking about complete salvation, posing vivaciously for each favor of being healthy. When it comes to conversing about death, he turns solemn and says that the only way to save them from that disaster is the Aurora Society's medicine.
When his men failed in killing the Bizarre Doll Ryan unintentionally resurrected, he curses them as useless and runs away. Ryan acts cowardly afterwards, hiding from the Bizarre Dolls he is indirectly responsible for. When intimidated, he easily blurts out confidential information.
In the manga, it is revealed that Ryan Stoker is the founder of Aurora Society in which he partakes in illegal human experiments of reviving the dead. He presents his medicine to an audience at a private meeting in Campania, salutating the crowd, posing as a phoenix. Ryan then goes over how splendid complete salvation is and how his medicine could save them from imminent doom, i.e., death.
He tests his artificial medicine on a corpse, Margaret Connor. The medicine, however, is dangerous and revives the corpse into a man-eating monster, a bizarre doll. Attempting to stop the bizarre doll from attacking further, he orders his men to shoot it. The bullets proved ineffectual and the bizarre doll advances to kill one of his men. Feeling desperate, he curses his men as impractical before running away for his own life.Ryan is consequently found hiding in the bottom freight storage, having been exposed by Sebastian. He makes excuses for himself, assuring that he had not planned to revive the corpses in such an unhealthy state. He attempts to run afterwards, but Sebastian stops him, wanting to hear the whole story, no matter how long. Ryan anxiously blurts out that there's even more samples that he had tested on in the front freight storage room.
Ryan is restricted by one of Snake's snakes so he won't be able to escape. Ciel Phantomhive threatens him with a gun to tell another way to stop the bizarre dolls besides smashing their heads. Ryan says that there's one other way, a device that omits supersonic waves, rendering all patients subjected to the complete salvation inactive again. He informs that the device is in his room, the first class. Ciel orders him to take them (i.e. Ciel, Snake, and Elizabeth Midford) there, prominently pointing his gun, and they make their way to the freight elevator in the boiler room in order to go upstairs.
When Ciel asks what Ryan's motive is to send the samples to America, he refuses to answer. He finally complies when Ciel decides to finish Ryan off. Frantic to save his own life, he admits that a company named Osiris bought the Aurora Society's complete salvation technology in order to develop a new drug.Ciel orders Snake to remove the snake around Ryan, so they could pretend to be his comrades. With that successful, they are able to enter the elevator from the turbine engine room, after posing as a phoenix to a dubious employee.
Later, the ship crashes into an iceberg and water floods into it. A large wave sweeps through where Ciel is, and Ryan is no longer shown, probably separated from them. Eventually, in the third boiler room, Snake catches Ryan escaping through an elevator by himself.He is later shown running through the first class hall, cursing that the ship is already dangerously tilted. He suddenly falls from his position only to have Grell Sutcliff catch his leg, rescuing him.
Grell addresses him by his name and the latter counters how Grell knows his name. Ronald Knox intervenes, saying the routine talk is unnecessary, and identifies Ryan as the guy that is moving the corpses around with some trick. Ryan is speechlessly surprised that they know of this information. Grell inquires how to stop the corpses and Ryan hastily tells him that there's a device in his room that can render the complete salvation ineffective again.
Ryan leads them to his first class guest room only to discover that his device has inexplicably disappeared. To his horror, he wonders if the one that stole his device is 'that man', i.e., Aleister Chamber.
Ryan, Grell, and Ronald encounter Aleister, Ciel, Sebastian, and the Undertaker in first class passenger lounge. Ryan yells at why the Aleister stole the device. The Viscount explains that with the power of the device, he's able to make the empire Ryan's created collapse and in its place would be Aleister's new realm, to Ryan's puzzlement.
Later when Aleister attempted to activate the device with a press of the button, he realizes it's defective. He shouts at Ryan that the device he built didn't work. Ryan then yells down at Undertaker for fooling him.After it is revealed that Undertaker is a Grim Reaper, Ryan comes running up to him and demands to know why the Bizarre Doll stopping devise didn’t work and if going to America to spread the complete salvation was a lie. Undertaker replies that he thought he was funny because he was seriously trying to bring the dead back to life and that he made the perfect pawn. He asks about their goal of making the world health, but Undertaker corrects him, saying that was Ryan’s goal. He reminds Ryan that he was relying on his skills and once he did so, the complete salvation is no longer medicine. He has used a treatment he doesn’t understand on his patients so he is not a doctor. Ryan collapses in grief and Undertaker pats his head and calls him a good boy for believing in his story.
- He shares his last name with Bram Stoker, the author of Dracula. They also died on the same day, April 20.
- (Reciting Aurora Society's greeting) "The complete flame in our chests shall not be extinguished by anyone. We are The Phoenix!"
- "Healthiness is truly splendid!"
- (To Undertaker) "Did you fool me? Was it all a lie?"
