Ryan Akagi is a passenger aboard the Infinity Train. He is accompanied by his best friend Min-Gi and denizen companion Kez throughout their journey in Book 4.





Apperance

Ryan is a young adult of Japanese descent. He has long brown hair and red glasses.

Ryan's outfit before getting on the Infinity Train and after meeting the Steward in the Party Car consists of a leather jacket, a mossy green turtleneck, light blue ripped jeans and maroon ankle boots.

Ryan also brought his guitar with him and uses it for the rest of the season after episode 6.

His guitar strongly resembles Jack White's Airline. The guitar's case has various stickers on it including a dolphin, the province British Columbia, a raised fist, the title for his promo cassette "My Oeuvre", a razor blade, the Chicken Choice Judy mascot, and a lightning bolt.

From episodes 1-5 Ryan wears the One uniform that Amelia wore in Book 3 and the gravity shoes previously seen used by Simon. His uniform is a shade lighter than Min's.

Personality

Ryan is a free spirited young man with an almost single-minded passion for music, specifically guitar. He enjoys being with his childhood best friend Min-Gi Park, though they had grown distant as they had gotten older. Something of a "leap before you look" type of person Ryan is self-confident and tends to act mostly on instinct and emotion, for better or worse. He's also a big dreamer, wanting to have been a rock star from a young age and willing to put in the effort even when he doesn't always succeed, usually due to his shortsightedness.

Young Min-Gi and Ryan

History

Ryan was born in Powell Lake, British Columbia in 1966[1] and befriended Min-Gi Park, a boy who was in the incubator next to him. He aspired to be a musician and wrote songs with Min. As they grew up, Ryan still wanted to become a musician while Min was pushed to major in finances in university.

Ryan and Min both went to Powell Lake high school. At one point they went signed up for a Battle of the Band, Min arrived late and got him a shirt, but chickened out just as they were able to go on. After graduating in 1985, his dad gave him his van and he toured Canada as a solo act. He had various girlfriends but they never stayed together long, one of them was even given his van.

He returned to Powell Lake after booking a gig in New York City and wanted Min to join him. When Min refused, he stole Min's keys and lured him to the station. When they are in an empty car and he is able to go into the next car, a portal appears and he throws the keys in. Soon after they both enter.
