Relationship Edit

Mark Edit

Mark and Ian share a close bond since they were roommates. Ian often invited Mark for parties and going to the gym on Saturdays. He and Mark also confide more personal details to each other. However, he was often quite defensive whenever Mark told him about his romantic encounters with other men.

If his romance is pursued, he will invite Mark to a party where he spontaneously kisses Mark in order to prove to two women, Molly and Holly that he is an accepting, fun loving, hookup. He later has a threesome with them, but later on drunkenly admits to Mark he was thinking of their kiss when he came.

He later attempts to be Mark's wing-man but lies about Mark having a monster cock in order to get the attention of the men at the gay bar, much to Mark's dismay. Later on, he will begin to act more distant with Mark, eventually rejecting his own birthday gift and claiming he will go with Zoe to Las Vegas instead. When Mark goes to return the birthday gift, he meets Zoe at the sex shop, where she reveals that Ian is actually not in Vegas. Mark later goes to her loft and finds that she was going to help Ian experience a gay fantasy he had been keeping secret for a very long time. It's revealed that Ian has had a crush on Mark for a very long time, and then Mark can either give Ian his fantasy anonymously, or pull off his blindfold and talk to him about his feelings.

The next day, Ian will come out to Penny and Mark, mirroring Mark's own coming out speech. At the end of the semester, Ian will go out to South America, with or without Mark, but later return and begin a relationship with him. Two years later, Ian and Mark marry each other and begin a new life together.

Penny Edit

Although Penny and Ian are roommates, their personalities clash and they got into quarrels very often. While Penny hates Ian for leaving his stuff around, Ian also teases her for the failed apps she has developed.

Zoe Edit

Ian has and on again off again relationship with his girlfriend Zoe, which he planned to break up with her before helping her move. He also owns an impressive collection of sex toys which was left behind at her loft after their break up.

Interestingly Zoe was the first to know about Ian's secret sexual fantasy of Mark.

Brad Edit

Ian and Brad briefly met when Brad was invited by Mark to burn the midnight oil while working on his paper. He interrupted them by claiming to find his nun-chucks and acting tough. Ian felt Brad is the typical jock who uses people like Mark to coast through life.

Phil Edit

Phil and Ian meet in an unexpected way. Mark and Phil were having sex while he went home late, whether or not he sees them doing it is depending on the player.

Jed Edit

Ian and Jed only met when Jed brought pizza to Mark's apartment. Though he does show some signs of jealousy on Jed's route once Mark and Jed start getting closer after the second pizza delivery.

Trivia Edit

  • If Mark manages to save $800 within the semester he might join Ian in South America, if they're on good enough terms.
  • Ian speaks Esperanto.
  • Ian's zodiac sign is Aries.
