Ryu is a arrogant and self adsorbed man which is to cover his fear of not being able to prove his self in the eyes of others. So to get attention Ryu resorts to breaking rules or trying to be a over achiever.
He is normally a dick to people until he gets to know them but even then he can still be a sarcastic ass to people. tho he only dose that cause it's the only way he knows how to draw attention to him self even if it's negative.
Ryu is not one for senseless fighting so he dose not go out looking for fights but that dose not mean he will not fight some one who puts him or his friends down. cause he is a ass hole most people will try to fight him, and since he dose not like bully's he has a problem with not backing down to people.
He is always trying to prove him self so he acts as if he is better then others, most times it comes off as smug so people do not try to get close and at other times it makes people want to challage him.
In general Ryu is a easy going person at least until he speaks then he is a ass, he is pretty smart at stuff but at times he can miss things that's right in front of his face.

I. History» History:
Ryu like many shinigami dose not know much about his human life except for bits and pieces that he sees in flashes every once and a while. From what he knows he lived a life as a monk in the late Edo period. How he died as a human he was still not sure for he has yet to get any hint at that threw his dreams.
Ryu grew up in district 6 in rugonkai, it was not the ritchest parts but it saw more coin come and go then that of the slums like hanging dog or ziraki. His parents owned a budest temple slash shop which they sold odd trinkets, he could not complain as it put food on the table and in his stomach. His sister was the smarter of the two so he was always looked at to have high expectations so to not be out done by his younger sibling. Since his sister was always seen to be more liked he was always getting in trouble so to get some attention even if most of the time it was not positive.
When he was older Ryu joined the Shinigami academy and managed to graduate with top marks in only two years of being there. His kido teacher was very surprised at how well he could control and handle reishi that he recommended that he join the 2 squad that deals in kido. After joining he did some missions and gained enough experience that he managed to reach the rank of 8 seat inside the squad, at the same time tho he also gained a reputation of being a ass hole so not many people wanted to be around him.
Ryu now works along side the 5th seat to help with what ever needs done from doing cleaning, delivery of mail down to killing hollows that roam into the rugonkai area.

I. Role Play Sample» Roleplay Sample:
It was Ryu first day in squad three along with his friend niomi shinada who was a year ahead of Ryu in the Shinigami academy, but he was smart enough to graduate early. He was supposed to head over to the large hall to listen to some entrance speech but he did not feel up to it for it was just a drag.
He already knew what they was gonna say and he was not to excited like most to know what his rank would be, if they wanted to put him in a high possession then he would rather earn it. So climbing up into a tree he laid down on a branch while he read his latest issue of monthly jump as he listened to what was being said inside the hall.
It was about thirty minutes into the meeting when he heard a girl's voice from the bottom of the tree so looking down he noticed that it was his friend niomi tho she did not look very happy.
" You idiot how can you be missing the big speech on your first day, I know your all smart and stuff Ryu but come on at least behive today of all days. So let's go and we should be able to make it to the tests where they put us in our proper ranks."
With a large sigh Ryu got down from the tree as he brushed the pine needles off his kimono. " I'm only doing this to shut you up so let's get going niomi." The two of them made there way over to the squad 3 training field where other members was already lined up in a military line.
Ryu and niomi walked up as the teacher was finishing up his speech and from the look that he gave the two of them as they arrived told him that he had no intention of repeating him self.
" It's nice to see that some around here could find the time to show up on time, but as I was saying you shall all be tested in four different categories. Shunpo,hand to hand combat,kido and lastly zanjutsu the way of the sword.
Now you should all be familiar with each class since you learned them all while in the academy. So when I call your name you shall step up and demonstrate the appropriate skill in which we are testing in. First shall be hand to hand, after kido after that zanjutsu and lastly shunpo."
One after another the Shinigami was paird up to spar and wouldn't you know it Ryu was unlucky to to have to go up against a gaint. And it was even worse that they was having to use there fists, it was not like he could not handle his self he just did not like fighting with his hands.
