Ryk Osentay was a male reporter for "Eye on Cularin", a Cularin Central Broadcasting program.

Ryk acquired a nasty virus when he was beat up by a radiation-scarred Ugnaught on the streets of Tolea Biqua on Genarius.

When he first returned to work after his ordeal, he appeared on the program with a shaved head, and puffy face as a result of surgery. On this occasion, he was interviewing Brin Hesk'l.
