|~ Ryuga Gentoku|
Ryuga Gentoku is a Demon player in End War Online, running his own organization known as [REDACTED]. All of Ryuga's weapons were created himself, with resources from his organization and the various other organizations tied to it.
Ryuga is quite partial to black clothing, wearing a black dress shirt; a black waistcoat with intricate gold embroidery; a long, flowing black coat with custom lapels; a small silver button bearing the symbol of his organization; tapered black slacks; a black leather belt with a custom silver buckle; and black, full-brogue, Oxford-style shoes. On either thigh is a holster: one for his Rogue pistol, the other for his Stalk pistol; with their respective knife sidearms sheathed behind his waist. Devil's Deal is sheathed on his back via invisible Anima bindings. In order to keep preserve his secret identity, he wears an all-black mask that features a fanged visor in yellow on its front, with two small air filters on the mouth. The mask also has a heterochromatic lighting to its eyes as well as a singular wire running down the mask in the same color, red on the right and green on the left.
Once [REDACTED], Ryuga changed his outfit. Now, he wears a full black suit with a dark purple dress shirt; a double-breasted suit jacket with an extended left side and angular purple patterns on both the left half of the jacket and its collar; the silver lapel pin bearing his organization's symbol; black slacks; and black formal boots. He wears his [REDACTED] on a chain around his neck as a pendant, in addition to a set of bangles around his wrist which both feature a short length of chain holding [REDACTED].
Using [REDACTED], Ryuga equips a skin-tight armor in black and purple. His coat flows through the armor, and gain a demonic, scaly appearance. His mask also takes on a demonic appearance, with heterochromia in its eyes reflecting Ryuga's own heterochromia. His helmet features demonic horns and a fanged mouthpiece, and a purple gem in its forehead. A pair of demon wings rest on his back, which can be used to hover and/or temporarily fly. Using this in conjunction with other ARMs has no modifications to this design.
In reality, he wears his school uniform, which consists of a white button-up t-shirt, a black necktie, black and red plaid trousers, black dress shoes, and an optional black blazer. When not in school, he wears a similar outfit to his in-game self: a black long-sleeve shirt with black skinny jeans, dark colored high-top sneakers, and a hooded dark grey jacket with short sleeves.
Ryuga was originally born to a cynical father and a mother who worked as a scientist, but they divorced and he was left in the custody of his mother. Since his mother couldn't afford to leave Ryuga by himself, she brought him to work most of the time. Ryuga didn't mind, since his mother's work fascinated him. His mother worked as a biological engineer, experimenting heavily with natural process and implementing them into artificial systems. His mother's work payed well, so they were able to live on their own without trouble. She never re-married, and he rarely heard from his father. Since he spent a lot of time with his mother's work, he picked up on biology and engineering fairly quickly, and gained knowledge on various biological processes. He performed at the top of his classes due to this knowledge, and became popular due to his intelligence. When he asked for a copy of End War Online and the RiftGear, his mother bought him both without hesitation, assuming that her son wanted the game to vent his stress from schoolwork.

Once he had set up his account in End War, Ryuga began looking for various research positions within the game to jump start the foundation of his own organization. Fortunately, he was able to join a mysterious organization known by the acronym AEP. Though he quickly rose to a mid-level research position and earned plenty of trust, Ryuga knew that this was the opportunity to spring away from the AEP and create his own. With this, Ryuga set up his organization and borrowed from the AEP's network of contacts. Some of the lower-level members joined Ryuga, slowly growing into a large and stable organization that Ryuga could begin his experimentation in.
Ryuga takes after his father more than his mother despite living with his mom for most of his life. He may appear calm and calculating at first glance, but he hides a manipulative persona underneath this facade where his desire to experiment and tinker take over. When you talk to him, you find a polite and endearing young man who is very kind and surprisingly charismatic. His initial, mild-mannered interactions fool people easily, and they fall for his charm almost right away. This facade carries over when he logs into EWO as Faust, using a voice modifier and minor changes to the way he talks to avoid revealing his true identity to everyone. He uses his natural charm to get the things he needs, and has a level of knowledge on human psychology so that he can manipulate people in just the right ways.
Deep down, Ryuga hides a cynical and warped existence, acting like a true mad scientist. Anyone and everyone is a pawn or guinea pig in his eyes, even himself. His experiments are in line with the AEP, which was how he manages to enter and rise up the ranks of the organization before leaving and creating [REDACTED] for himself, free from the limits of what the AEP want. His manipulative persona shines as he reveals his analytical mind and displays intricate levels of tactical prowess. He has little respect for life and openly disregards safety regulations in order to further his research. Despite his father holding a god complex, Ryuga does not have any such complex, simply wanting to satiate his curiosity and further his research to do so.

Ryuga doesn't fight directly, since he's analyzing his subjects or dealing with various other matters that don't involve fighting. However, he has trained in hand-to-hand combat and marksmanship. By running calculations in his head, Ryuga can ricochet his bullets off of anything. His weapons consist of the Memphisto rifle, the Rogue and the Stalk weapon sets. The latter two consist of a machine-pistol or sub-machine gun paired with a knife-like blade that can separate at the hilt. The weapon sets combine to form a pair of rifles, each customized to use a trifecta of different ammunition types that can be changed on the go. However, his Memphisto rifle is his primary weapon, designed to act as an all-purpose rifle with prowess in medium or long-range engagements.
In addition to his marksmanship, Ryuga has trained in some Soulcraft techniques to augment himself. Due to being a Demon, he has a natural affinity for Dark-attributed Soulcraft; he's developed sufficient capabilities with Anima Infusion and Soul Vision to assist in his goals. When he is incapable of wielding the knives of his dual weapon sets, Ryuga defaults to his sword, the Devil's Deal, for its compatibility with his personal [REDACTED].
Ryuga also rides a Honda CBR600RR in-game, though he rides a Honda XR 230 in real life. The CBR600RR is customized for rough terrain and handling, featuring a black coloration to maintain Ryuga's preference for monochrome color schemes with the addition of red and green highlights to keep with the color scheme of his avatar.
- Ryuga's concept is derived from and in reference to Kamen Rider Build.
- His name comes from the characters Ryuga Banjou and Gentoku Himuro.
- As a further reference to Kamen Rider Build, Kensei Mikami, the actor who places Gentoku Himuro in Build, is Ryuga Gentoku's voice actor.
- The names of his weapon sets are derived from Night Rogue and Blood Stalk, the villains of the aforementioned series. In addition, they are also in reference to the Transteam Gun and Steam Blade weapons.
- His name comes from the characters Ryuga Banjou and Gentoku Himuro.
- The mad scientist being the leader of his own organization sounded like a fun idea to me.
- Apparently, Kirito's bike sounds like a 250cc engine, so I decided to give Ryuga a bike to use IRL with a similar engine capacity.
