Bio: Ron met Janice in College. They quickly grew close, and together enjoyed the teachings of Professor Skarab while in college. They joined him on a trip to Cairo to learn more about the ancient Swarili tribe of Africa, which brought them into a series of adventures with the Living Mummy.
He risked his own life and badly burnt his hands saving N'Kantu where he was attacked by a blowtorch wielding agent of the Elementals. He was also forced to take up weapons and fight--though he was against violence of any kind--in order to prevent the followers of the Elementals from overwhelming them. He and N'Kantu later confronted Hydron, managing to wound him with a gunshot through the shoulder, breaking his concentration enough to cause the bonds holding Zephyr, Olddan, and the Asp to evaporate, and allow them to escape.
