Detective Kevin Ryan is a member of [[Kate Beckett|Kate Beckett's]] team and partners with Detective [[Javier Esposito]].   
  
Unlike his tough, seemingly always together partner, Ryan is a little more of a klutz, but still a very skilled detective.  He tends to put his foot in his mouth, eliciting a slap across the head from Esposito or a glare from Beckett, and drop or bumble things.  One time he pushed off too hard while sitting in his rolling desk chair and Esposito had to grab the chair's arm to keep Ryan from flying across the precinct.  Nevertheless, he is fiercely loyal to Beckett and Esposito.

Ryan is also more impressionable than Esposito.  In [[Close Encounters of the Murderous Kind]], he admits he always suspected that a relative had been abducted by aliens, just as Castle thinks he and Beckett were, and in [[The Fast and the Furriest]] he joins Castle in trying to prove to Esposito and Beckett that Big Foot could be responsible for the death of a college student.  He frequently finds himself siding with Castle against the more skeptical Esposito and Beckett in their friendly debates over Castle's off-the-wall theories.

Before joining homicide, Ryan worked with the narcotics division of the NYPD (around 2003 when the legend Cavalo started to circulate).<ref name=Futon>[http://www.thefutoncritic.com/interviews/2010/11/15/interview-castle-co-stars-nathan-fillion-and-stana-katic-977502/20101115_castle/ "Interview: ''Castle'' Co-Stars Nathan Fillion & Stana Katic] The Futon Critic, written by Jim Halterman, posted 11/15/2010</ref>His most significant work was going undercover for 14 months as Fenton O'Connell to infiltrate an Irish drug gang.

With a growing family, Ryan starts to take on extra work out of hours working security. In [[Clear and Present Danger]], it emerges he is occasionally a bouncer at a male strip club called Men-hattan, much to Esposito's enjoyment. In [[At Close Range]], he takes a job with his brother-in-law, Frank Kelly, to provide personal protection to a US congressman. When one of his top aides is shot dead, Ryan feels driven to solve the crime - even to the extent of arresting Frank, who had been selling press access passes illicitly to the congressman's events.
+
 
+
After Beckett becomes captain of the 12th, both Ryan and Esposito take their sergeant's exams. Esposito passes but Ryan does not, which causes tension between them. The relationship deteriorates even further in [[The Nose]], when Ryan accidentally shoots Esposito in the backside during a pursuit, and it is suggested they both find new partners. However, in [[The Last Seduction]], Ryan takes a bullet for Esposito during an arrest and they are reconciled. They are expected to stay together for some time while Espo waits for a sergeant's slot to become available.
