About Him

Grew up... as a member of the illustrious Hayabusa Ninja Clan. Ryu’s upbringing under his father and clan leader Jo Hayabusa was harsh and full of sorrow, but it molded him into a masterful ninja warrior.

Living... in Hayabusa village. In this hidden community at the base of Mount Fuji, Ryu and members of his clan can live and train in peace.

Profession... ninja. As a descendent of the Dragon Clan, it is Ryu’s duty to protect the world from dark forces. As a modern-day ninja, sometimes this even means teaming up with groups like the CIA. His skills have earned him many nicknames like “The Ultimate Ninja” and “The Singular Super Ninja.”

Relationship Status... in a relationship. Ryu is romantically involved with American CIA operative Irene Lew, a capable warrior in her own right. The nature of their jobs, traveling the world fighting evil, gives them plenty of excuses to be together. 

Challenge... defeating the dark forces that threaten the world. Ryu wields the legendary Dragon Sword, which is capable of defeating very powerful demonic forces. But they won’t go down without a fight. However, Ryu isn’t that concerned because, as he says, “Darkness is fated to eventually be destroyed.”       

Personality... cold, determined, and wise. Although Ryu is extremely deadly, he isn’t fueled by hatred. Rather, he views himself more as a force of nature – often times tranquil, but capable of great destructive force when needed. Ryu violently slaughters his enemies without mercy, but he is very kind and gentle toward members of his clan. He does everything in his power to keep them safe from the many evil enemies they’ve made, like the rival Black Spider Ninja Clan.
