Ryu Itou is the son of Chishio Itou and Kaede Arakaki, born outside of Nova Scotia alongside his twin brothers Rei Itou and Ran Itou. Ryu was almost the runt of the litter; with Rei being further smaller and weaker than him. Whilst he survived the first few months of life along with his brothers, he along with Rei, were exiled from their pack at the time on the basis that they were too weak to contribute to the pack.

    • Optime Hair: When in optime form, the Wolfdog often styles his hair with whatever natural wax or stick substance that is around and works, creating a rather voluminous and spiky look, separating his hair as much as possible into it's respective colour groups to further give himself a unique appearance.
  • Facial Features: His face is that of a wolf completely.

Personality

Something Here, Something Here, Something Here & Something Here

If one where to see him from a distance, or at a glance, it might be said that he's a passive fellow; somber and sedate besides a sharp tongue and the occasional dry remark. Ryu is seemingly but a cool and quiet natured audience, distant, one easily inclined to the natural ambiguity of disciplined actions and little speech. He draws some enjoyment from playing upon, and honing in on the weakness of others, possessing a particularly keen eye for rage and greed, though he's hardly impervious to anger himself. Only direct strikes upon a few things call it forth; being reminded of his own physical disparity, rejection, and familial shame. With these occurrence he becomes thoughtlessly vengeful with wrath, seemingly slower to anger than siblings and only lashing out at the pinnacle of his rage, but with a fury no lessened because of this. His anger is the sort to fester and simmer bitterly, and grudges are, more often than not, maintained with an almost obsessive fervor.

History

Drawn to Kaede's pack by it's name and the humour he found in it, Chishio approached the pack and encountered one Kaede Arakaki; the female behind the name of a pack. Kaede was a very distant decent of a Japanese Wolf x American Wolf at some point in her history, her parents choosing to give her a Japanese to reflect the distant heritage. Intrigued by a non-japanese female baring such a name, Chishio found himself intrigued by her and after his interest waned he left, Kaede discovering she was pregnant shortly after his departure.

The litter was born, 11/11/11 and much to the horror of Kaede, two of the three pups; Rei and Ryu were born runts and exceptionally weak bodied. After months of dedicated care, the two runts succeeded in fighting of the worst of their diseases and problems and began to live normal lives. Then their home pack decided they were too weak, exiling them for their incapacity to be efficient hunters; unwilling to leave the two alone, Ran followed with them and the three began to seek out other family members from the information their mother provided them.
