My fangirl friends wanted to see him with beard and they liked it so I kept it. Ryuu Kuraiko is the strongest alive Kuraiko Clan member. He's also a part of the elite 5 of Yami-Gakure, but he's in the seconds section, not the first one, because well... I don't think you want such a unfriendly face as your Clanleader. xD That's why Chinatsu is the Clanleader. c: He's the father of Akuma Kuraiko, Toshi Kuraiko and Mimiko Kuraiko. And he's a bad father btw. -_- He seems to look very young but he's already 103 years old. And my english is way too bad to explain why. xD
