Ryuu wore a white mask with two circle eye holes. The mask covers his entire head and has not additional features. The mask is virtually unbreakable. Ryuu wears the mask due to be disfigured by a Hollow, the shame causing Ryuu intense panic and fear. As a seated officer he wears the typical Shinigami shihakusho with no modifications what so ever.
Due to wearing his mask, people view Ryuu as a mysterious being. Ryuu adopted this and made people think he is a mystery. However Ryuu is shown to be arrogant and has a Superiority complex, which leads to his arrogance.
Despite this he shows loyalty to Shūsuke Amagai, however he still believes himself superior to him. This loyalty is due to Amagai saving him form the Hollow that attacked him as a child. Ryuu always introduces himself to his opponent so they know who killed them. He dislikes killing from the shadows and prefers to do the killing himself rather than have someone else do it.
When Ryuu was a child he was attacked by a Hollow, the Hollow used flames to attack him and his face was horrendously burnt. Amagai killed the Hollow at the last moment and nursed Ryuu as best he could. One day Ryuu took his bandages off and looked at himself for the first time since the incident, the horror and shock caused him lash out at everyone, until Amagai gave him a mask.
From there Ryuu entered the Shinigami Academy. When he graduated he was placed into the Third Division. Due to his skills he was a seated officer upon entry.
