Ryuu Saito, 斎藤竜, (RYUU (竜): Japanese name meaning "dragon.")

Gender: male
Age: 15
D.o.B: July 15
Height: 172cm (5'7'')
Weight: 69kg (152lbs)
Deck: Dragon of despair
Riding Duel: Yes!

: Ryuu lives with his mother, Sayuri, and his little half-sister, Hanako, from the same mother. He knows nothing about his father and his mother never speaks about him. Hanako's father, Nobu, died when Ryuu was only five years old so he grew up without a father figure. Deep down, Ryuu feels he needs a father even though he pretends he doesn’t. He is rarely at home and the relationship with his mother mostly seems nonexistent. However, he is overprotective towards his sister and cares deeply for her.

: Ryuu has short red-brown hair, hazel eyes, medium height and stocky form. His everyday outfit is a brown coat above a green sleeveless shirt, black leather pants, and a brown belt that holds his deck at the back and black boots. He also wears green fingerless gloves and a gray headband around his forehead. He has multiple piercings in his ears and always wears a dragon pendant and a blank 'dog tag' that hang from his neck, while wearing two ball-chains on his belt at his left hip.

His school uniform consists of a white shirt, a dark blue jacket with white lining (and the 'DA' logo of the Neo Duel Academia), a yellow tie, and black pants. However Ryuu never wears his tie and he leaves his shirt half open. Also, he wears his boots instead of the typical brown shoes that complete the Academia's male uniform.
(For more information, check reference sheet above)

: Ryuu is who everyone calls 'the bad guy'. He is a street boy: risky, fearless, a bit violent and ready to face any kind of challenge that life throws at his feet. His spirit is way too untamed, wild and independent. He despises most of the laws and school rules and doesn’t care about any danger. He is also extremely confident and many times he goes around asking for trouble or getting himself into fights, but always gets away without help. Duels are his passion and the reason why he challenges his fate a lot.

Ryuu grew up in a different city but at the age of 15, his family moved to Neo Domino. He enrolled into Neo Duel Academia, but he is not the best student since he skips classes often and doesn't care about grades. But he is one of the top duelists with great powers and skills. Ryuu's life and past is a mystery to everyone; he never talks about himself and has no friends since he doesn’t believe in friendship and trusts no one. He would rather be alone than to hang out with ‘common people’ but he will never admit that he is feeling lonely sometimes. However, Chou catches his attention especially after he learned about her psychic powers.

Yeah, I've only drawn my OC about three times, but only done his portrait. I've done his full body once and some people liked the look but the picture needs some work.
