"Caesar had his Brutus, Charles the First his Cromwell, George the Third his Patrick Henry, and Mankind his Ryuunosuke." - Appleblossom
Ryuunosuke Asahina (朝比奈 龍之介, Asahina Ryuunosuke) is a spiritually aware Human boy who has attained Shinigami powers.
Ryuu’s countenance usually depicts a tired and troubled young boy. He has very pale skin, a thin face with an emaciated body, and is often seen with bags under his eyes. He has raven black hair, some falling past his ears on both sides of his face, and some strands over his forehead. He has royal blue eyes and thin lips.
Not taking too much time on his appearance, Ryuu mostly wears clothes that cover all parts of his body, shirts with long sleeves, jeans or khaki pants, a coat, gloves, black boots, as though he is constantly dressed to fight cold climates, even in the summer.
Ryuu is very depressed and has a negative outlook on most everything in life. At times he won’t show it, and is usually shown expressionless with no opinion on anything. He doesn’t talk much unless spoken too, though he does throw jabs at his sister in making fun of her, or comforting Taro. He is a very calculating person, and at times is a perfectionist, thinking there is only one way to do things.
Ryuu has a hard time saying what's on his mind, and it's as if every word he tries to say needs to be done with trenemdnous effort. Although he may seeem like he's not listening to someone's problems, he is actually paying close attention, and though he may never show it, he truly cares about those around him.
He is a very intelligent boy and is usually at the top of his class. He enjoys reading anything about history and usually knows random facts one would only hear on Jeopardy! Ryuu is a vegan and is very much pro-green; he loves all animals and nature and usually seeks refuge in it. His favorite food is hummus with pita bread.
- Ryuu’s appearance is based off of Yoite from Nabari no Ou.
- His theme song is "I'd Hate to be You When People Find Out What This Song is About" by Mayday Parade.
- "If you're going to kill off a thousand trees, the least you can do is recycle the paper when you're done with it."
- "Everything I do is wrong....one more mistake, another blunder, an additional failure for me to see how stupid I am, how worthless I've become."
