Zeke Ryder was born on February 14th in the town of Bolton, Connecticut with a single mother, and two other brothers, Kyle, and Martin, both of course older, both also swimmers.
Martin being five years older than Zeke himself really tended to both his brothers and became more of a fatherly figure then a brother. He helped Zeke with homework and yelled at him whenever he didn't push himself to be the best.
Kyle on the other hand is only a year separate from the youngest brother, Zeke, and became more of a best friend that helped him with his personal life. Girls would tend to flaunt over Kyle though, he fit and looks the style of the gorgeous jock type. Playing soccer, baseball, and basketball and almost every other sport he could get himself into.
His mother, Belize, was never around much due to working two full time jobs to try and feed three teenage boys as well as going on dates almost every night to try and find someone else. Maybe someone better that would help take care of the boys throughout their life but it seemed during throughout life she never found someone.
During elementary school, Zeke was always the shy kid, so he tended to talk to the teachers more than any of the other students. He stuck to himself and tended to put himself in his own corners. Kyle had signed the boy up for swimming lessons and Zeke picked up on them really quickly, after that they would go to the public pool every weekend, both Saturday, and Sunday.
Middle school was another story, people tended to group toward Zeke which instantly made him nervous, and uncomfortable. He wasn't used to having many friends, he tended not to focus on his studies at this point which made Martin pretty angry and tended to yell at the boy more. He started to dye his hair multiple different colors. After a while he pushed in both swimming and his smarts and it worked out perfectly.
During the summer between switching from Middle school to High school, Martin shipped him off to a co-ed private school to where he could try to focus more on his studies not realizing there was a pool and a swim team here.
Zeke looks forward to his new school, and possibly meeting new kids, when he’s not swimming or in classes he’s probably on his laptop with headphones on.
