[justify][font=garamond][color=#0047FA]⌈[/color][color=#BFBFBF]Age[/color][color=#0047FA]⌋[/color]
Visually in his mid to late twenties. How old he actually is is anybody’s guess. He certainly is not divulging.

[color=#0047FA]⌈[/color][color=#BFBFBF]Appearance[/color][color=#0047FA]⌋[/color]
Ryūnosuke is a man of two very distinct faces. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that he is a yōkai with a human face for particular occasions. The human guise is, in fact, the one he seems to prefer, or at least he chooses not to advertise the fact that he is a demon. In this form, Ryūnosuke is a tall man, particularly for the country and era, standing at a solid 6’2”, practically a skyscraper among those he most frequently interacts with. His build is solid, well-muscled, but due to his height he appears quite lean rather than bulky. His musculature is defined, covered in near-flawless skin of a pale, but sun exposed hue.

His facial features are strong and sharp, a defined nose and angular jaw accompanied by straight brows set over glittering, intelligent eyes, the amethyst color of them the only hint that something about his genetics isn’t quite human, though it is the faintest one. He most often wears an expression of solemnity and seriousness, but on the rare occasions that he smiles, there is mischief in it, and something a little dangerous. One might call it lupine, or perhaps even foxlike.

His clothing is simple, but immaculate: the dark grey gi and black hakama accompanied by a white kosode and dark blue warrior’s obi, which contains the standard arrangement of weapons for a samurai: katana, wakizashi, and tanto, all on the right side, as he is in fact slightly left-hand dominant. Actually, he most frequently holds the katana in his left and the wakizashi in his right at the same time, though you’d not know it to simply look at him, which is the goal.

Only very rarely is someone of Ryūnosuke’s strength forced to revert to his more powerful youkai self, but when he does, the changes are obvious. Though his eyes and general facial structure remain the same, his features sharpen further, he gains another two inches of height, and his long black hair turns an exotic shade of silver-white. This is in addition to the white, furred ears of some kind of canine that replace the ordinary rounded flesh-ones. He also grows a tail, of the same color, and his complexion loses what scars it managed to acquire and any hint of tan as well, marking him as a nocturnal creature by choice. Iron-hard claws sprout from the ends of his fingers, their color almost pearlescent, and his canine teeth sharpen to wicked points.[/font][/justify]

Ryūnosuke is a man who holds himself to immaculate standards of behavior, in both formal and informal settings. He is not one to relax his moral compunctions for any situation, and truly endeavors to do what he feels is right regardless of the cost. Unfailingly a good sort of person, he endeavors always to aid those with justice on their side, regardless of how well they can pay or who they are. Oftentimes, this leads to him putting himself at considerable risk, when a more self-interested person would work for the highest bidder or one lord only or just avoid the situation altogether. He can’t bring himself to be like that, however.

Generally patient, tolerant, and even-tempered, Ryūnosuke is quite difficult to rile from his seemingly preternatural calm. At times, this can make him seem distant or cold, and many people have misinterpreted him as being uncaring, since he tends to display so little emotion. Most of the time, he seems to move with unconscious grace, and great control. This is actually a strictly-enforced trait, and if he ever forgot, he might accidentally move too quickly and break something. Over the years, he has found several things about adjusting to human society difficult, and curbing his abilities in this way has always been one such thing. He often seems to be looking into the middle distance or not paying attention, but he doesn’t particularly need to be looking at something to be observing it, as his senses of hearing and smell are both quite attuned, part of his yōkai heritage.

Unfortunately, he is also a creature of brutal predatory instinct, and what is so carefully-contained in his human state is much harder to contend with in his natural form. His senses sharpen, his speed increases to superhuman levels, and he becomes a much more… free creature: more violent, more emotional, and even more sensual, though no less intelligent, which makes him quite dangerous indeed. Among his yōkai abilities are a level of chi/ki control, accelerated healing and durability, and increased strength and speed. He lacks the mind-magic that some of his kind have, but makes up for it with enhanced physical capabilities above the norm even for yōkai. The downside is that he is far more indiscriminate in his killing, and cannot be trusted not to turn on his allies. He fights his own nature, preferring his human form immensely, weaker though it is. As such, he is fundamentally conflicted as a whole person, and difficult to predict, even for himself.

[color=#0047FA]⌈[/color][color=#BFBFBF]Relationships[/color][color=#0047FA]⌋[/color]
At present, Ryūnosuke has only two living relatives with whom he is concerned—his father and his sister. His father, he despises with a passion uncommon in him. His sister, he cares for deeply, though he is currently unsure of her location. He once had a human teacher, who taught him much of both human styles of combat and also morality. The man has long since passed away, but Ryūnosuke still carries his lessons and his unique two-blade sword style.

[color=#0047FA]⌈[/color][color=#BFBFBF]Equipment[/color][color=#0047FA]⌋[/color]
[i]Katana[/i]—slightly longer than standard length, perhaps approaching odachi-length, though not quite.
[i]Wakizashi[/i]—an intermediate-length blade, often used as a samurai’s secondary weapon. Ryū wields it in his off-hand quite frequently.
[i]Tanto[/i]—a shorter, straight-bladed knife, with more durability than a standard dagger. Worn as the third part of the standard three-blade set and used as needed.

[color=#0047FA]⌈[/color][color=#BFBFBF]Strengths[/color][color=#0047FA]⌋[/color]
Put simply, Ryūnosuke is the quintessential combatant. He’s had centuries to refine his skills and his talent, and the natural boost from his demonic heritage is also a boon. Additionally, he is skilled in the areas of art and conversation—when he wants to be. He wouldn’t make a bad leader, but he’s not inclined to take such roles for himself. He will act as such if it is requested of him, but he would not volunteer for command.

[color=#0047FA]⌈[/color][color=#BFBFBF]Weaknesses[/color][color=#0047FA]⌋[/color]
As a being essentially at war with himself, Ryūnosuke can sometimes feel conflicted about what he does, and there are times when he entertains great doubt as to the validity of his methods. Additionally, he dreads being revealed, particularly to humans, who seem universally to fear him, something he hates about himself. He struggles to find his place in the world, and this is reflected in his interactions with others—his humility drives him to address nearly anyone else as though they were his superiors, and he uses quite debasing first-person pronouns as a rule of thumb. He is, as a kitsune, possessed of an external manifestation of his soul-- a "star ball," which, if possessed by another, would to a large degree put him under their control. His is well-hidden, but if one knows youkai lore, they know that kitsune must keep such things close by...

Also note that if his demon form is released against his will, his instincts may take hold of his body, and they rarely bother to distinguish friend from foe.[/font][/justify]

His home is where he lays his head; he has needed no other for a very long time.

[color=#0047FA]⌈[/color][color=#BFBFBF]History[/color][color=#0047FA]⌋[/color]
The demon realm is a place hidden from human access, where yōkai reign supreme, ruled over by the four noble houses. It was into one of these houses, the House of the Moon, that Ryuunosuke was born. Called then Takahiro, he was his place in that house remains unknown to all save a few, as he prefers not to speak of it at all. His father, like many yōkai, held the human world in contempt, as little more than a playground for yōkai to terrorize as they saw fit, as long as the secret of their world remained hidden from the ningen.

It was in fact a rather common blood sport centuries ago to take small groups of young yōkai and teach them how to kill by practicing on the humans. It was an ugly, instinctive sport, and death was not the only horror they wrought. Half-demon children were common back then, and indeed, this was the reason for the Edict, imposed later upon all of demonkind, naming the hanyou as abominations that should be killed on sight. Like every young demon of that time, Takahiro participated in these hunts, though something always troubled him about them. He had been taught from birth that he was a superior being, that ningen were worth less than nothing, not even worthy of licking the dust from his feet, and yet… he could not help but feel something in his heart, when he watched them band together to defend one another against the scourge of the yōkai.

In time, this led to a decision on his part: unauthorized and alone, Takahiro entered the human world, to see what he could without destroying it. For this, he asked his sister’s aid, and she helped him learn to fashion a human form, though he never did get the eyes quite right. Entering the other world, he came upon many people, young and old rich and poor, righteous and despicable, and he found that they were not so different from the yōkai he knew. One among them recognized him for what he was, an older man, carrying three weapons at his waist. Curious about this human who had recognized him, Takahiro had a conversation with the man, which ended with his return to his own world.

He came back many times, though, and his sympathies for the ningen only grew with time. The old man taught him to fight not with tooth and claw and ki, but with steel and finesse and grace, and he took to the lessons well, helped along by his natural talents in such matters. More than this though, the old man taught him about honor and justice and what these things meant for humans—something quite different than they meant for yōkai. He found that he preferred these ways to the ones he’d always been taught, and in the end, they resulted in an even t most irregular—a son defied his lord father.

Indeed, Takahiro spoke out against his father in councils and refused to participate in further hunts, discouraging his allies from doing so as well. He was becoming a major nuisance and a shame upon the House of the Moon, so he was given a choice: repent his ningen sympathies and kill a thousand of them to prove it, or else face exile from the lands of his forefathers. He didn’t even need to think about it, and he has been a wandering exile since. His mentor renamed him Ryūnosuke, a name that he has used since. As he puts it, Takahiro is dead, and reemerges only when Ryūnosuke loses himself.

His sister was exiled also in a separate incident, and though the two do care for each other, they are presently somewhat estranged due to tension left over from the days of his initial exile. He does not know where she is, though he does keep an ear to the ground for news of her. Still, he knows she’s more than capable of looking out for herself. He himself is ronin these days, and works largely as a mercenary, though occasionally he’ll sell a piece of art as well. He has a reputation for being a man who will take on tasks without regard for their difficulty, as long as they are just. Ironically, despite his great skill and ferocity on the field of battle, he is never identified with a demon poetically, and instead those disposed to such flights of imagination fancy him a saint.[/font][/justify]
