|“||I have my orders!||”|
|— Ryder to Clarke [src]|
Throughout the Series
In Rubicon, Ryder has been assigned by Commander Lexa to protect Clarke Griffin. He observes Clarke's conversation with Raven Reyes until Clarke orders him to wait outside the room. He begins to draw his sword when Marcus Kane grabs Clarke's arm, so she orders him to stand down. Later, he is seen escorting Clarke into Tondc.
In Bodyguard of Lies, he reassigns Octavia Blake to guard duty instead of the task Indra had assigned to her. Lexa orders him to kill Octavia because she could not trust her. Later, he is seen aiming a bow and arrow towards Octavia's direction. However, Clarke is able to sneak up on him and points a gun at his head to stop him from killing Octavia. Clarke takes him to Lexa at gunpoint and refuses to let him leave her sight until Lexa orders him to stand down from the kill order.
Ryder is a no-nonsense individual, who takes his duty and honor as a warrior very seriously.
