File:Ridley.jpg|thumb|220px|Ridley's corpse floating in the MJ12 Sub base deep under the new West Coast. Thomas Mann, the Trooper that killed him can be seen lying down in the background.
'''Ridley''' was a scientist posted in the MJ12 Ocean Lab in Deus Ex.
Shortly prior to the player arriving, Ridley sabotaged the base thoroughly by detonating LAMs, flooding most of the lower portions of the base. He also uploaded a computer virus that sent the Base's security Turrets haywire and opened the cages holding the base's many Transgenics. By the time the player arrives, all of the base's personnel are dead, or have escaped through submarines. Ridley claimed to be a member of the "Illuminati|Illuminated" ones, and may have been a bug for the Illuminati all along, or may have just been crazy. Ridley himself made it to the Submarine bay, but encountered a MJ12 Trooper|Trooper named Thomas Mann who shot Ridley in the head shortly before dying of his own wounds. He must have acted very quickly before JC arrives, as no personnel from the surface have visited the area yet, and Tiffany Savage was not caught in the chaos. On the way back through the base, JC encounters Walton Simons and two MJ12 Scuba Divers who drove a submarine to the base shortly after JC's departure.
