Ryke Masters, also known as simply Ryke or by his real name, Olivier (Oli), is a long-time member of the Tales forums. In August of 2007, he was selected as a candidate for Moderator, and later promoted, along with Shadowfox and Ryuuko.
Ryke is a very bright member who likes to contribute to debates and intelligent discussions. He is one of the rare native francophone Québécois youth who can speak proper English.
He has been known to periodically obsess about bands such as The Mars Volta, The White Stripes or Modest Mouse and anime series such as Serial Experiments Lain and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. He was originally known for having the same avatar for a very long time, paling in comparison only to CovertSushi, whose signature and avatar are said to pre-date the rise of the Internet. However, in 2005, his avatar caught up with what he called his "mad Photoshop skillz" and have since fluctuated at a speed he judges to be slightly below forum average. Virtually the only subjects he has proven capable of showing on a signature and/or avatar are the aforementioned anime series, or abstract signatures brought about by his own mental ramblings (which may or may not be put on paper one day) and obscure music.
Ryke Masters is an aspiring writer. He is also known as the Greatest Mod of All Time, and he received this title on March 21st, 2008.
