this man was a reporter for the Eye on Cularin news program, during the height of the Clone Wars. It was rumored that he was once a podracing announcer who reported on race status from the pits. He was supposedly beaten to a pulp during a live broadcast when he dropped a microphone into the engineof Sebulba's racer. After joining the Cularin Central Broadcasting team, he was among the first reporters to bring to light the meaning of the TINYF graffiti that began to show up on the buildings of Cularin's cities. It was his report that dubbed the graffiti "Tiny F", a phrase which quickly gained popularity. In a follow-on interview with an undisclosed source, Osentay exposed the connection between the Thaereian Military and the InterGalactic Banking Clan, and opened up a dialogue on the widespread corruption throughout Cularin's businesses and government. His source was revealed to be Gerta Haman, who was brutally subdued by Thaereian military police. Ryk, undaunted, later reported on Gerta's death near Thaere. His investigative work later took him to Tolea Biqua, to report on the legacy of Riboga. None of the beings he approached wanted to talk to him, and he was unaware that the CCB turned his interviews into a sort of comedy show. During one attempt to interview an Ugnaught, Ryk was badly beaten by the short-statured being, while his camerabeing recorded the entire incident. This footage was later used when Ryk returned to active duty - still recovering from surgery and rehabilitation - as part of the lead-in to his interview with Brin Hesk'l.
