Ryuu was born October 28, 1964 and was originally a Sky Forcer codenamed "W6." He was recruited along with four others for the J-Project and is the leader of the Jetman. One of the four was her fiancee Rie, she fell through a hole in a space ship and he mourned her. He and Chokan were the only ones to survive the Vyram's attack on the Earthship. Being the only official to become a Jetman, his policy was to be always professional and never let feelings affect himself in battle, which is the primary reason to why he and Gai fought constantly. When Ryu discovers that his beloved Rie had become the Vyram officer Maria, which later caused Gai's inner sense of justice to awaken, the conflict boiled. He didn't drink alcohol and he loved hot milk without sugar, but ironically drank with his former rival turned best friend Gai in one episode. In the course of events, Radiguet had taken the guise of a human and he helped Ryu to make certain his enemy fell. Ryu didn't know who Radiguet was. Radiguet turned Rie into a blood-hungry vampiric creature, trying to burn the humanity out of her. Underneath it all was still her love for Ryu, and Ryu forced her to remember. She chose to take back her humanity, but Radiguet was not willing to let her go. Remembering both her life as a Vyram and her life as a human, she attacked him and he dealt her the blow which eventually killed her. She refused to let Ryu help her, remembering that she had been a murderer, she fled to die in Grey's arms. Ryu went a bit mad after those events, and he took on Radiguet on his own. Radiguet wasn't too sane at this point himself, and when Radiguet was about to destroy Ryu, when Raita, Ako and Kaori arrived. Kaori took a shot meant for Ryu, forcing him off the field of battle to both tend her and receive a lecture on his responsibility to humanity and Earth weighing more than personal revenge. Rie's ghost came to make the point as well. Ryu, strung out and vulnerable to both women, did indeed pull himself together, and with his teammates and their mentor, together they destroyed Radiguet, ending the Vyram threat. Ryu married Kaori in the series finale.
