Ryden Kurtzman is a villain in the series, Mutant Drake.
Ryden takes on the appearance of a tired-looking adult with a slight grey skin. He has black, shaggy hair and red eyes. His eyebrows are also thick. He wears a white labcoat, dirty and slightly torn, over a black turtleneck, long brown pants and black boots.
In flashbacks, Ryden's lab coat was clean and not torn at all, his hair was less shaggy and his eyes were brown. He also didn't look so tired, with no lines on his face at the time.
Ryden has the personality of a twisted man who sees the world as corrupt with hate and evil, seeing that he is the only one who can wipe out this hatred of Mutants. He believes that Mutants are the future and that the Human race should be wiped out. He also has a large ego in which he believes that he is a king and all powerful. When calmed, Ryden speaks cleverly, using sophisticated dialogue. He also gives off a charm which he uses to manipulate others. When angered, he can start talking threats and acting out in a rage.
