A test pilot and SRX team member, he’s passionate, straightforward and often reckless. Women are a complete mystery to him, but he’s a hardcore super robot enthusiast. He met Ingram Prisken after winning a robot-simulation game tournament called "Burning PT." Ingram immediately recognized Ryusei’s ability, and it didn’t take long for Ryusei to decide to join the army. His cheerfulness is contagious, but he’s sometimes mistaken as being shallow. In reality, he’s one of the most reliable guys to have at your side in a pinch. Some say he has the devil’s luck, always managing to escape difficult situations despite impossible odds. He’s 18 and a Master Sergeant.
