Ryan (11) Leis

Since childhood, history has fascinated Ryan. He regularly made weapons and armour out of whatever materials he could get his hands on. (And still does!) Ryan has been a professional blacksmith for over a decade.

His work as a blacksmith brought him to study Germanic and Norse paganism. During his studies, he came across the runes, and they have become an integral part of his life. You can see him light up whenever he uses or shares them.

He lives in the quiet town of Palmerston with his wife, Alli and their two sons. In his spare time, he can be found listening to Alan Watt's chillstep and playing video games.
