I thought a lot about how I should let Ryo die. First I thought he should die at the clanwar, but I decided to let him die this way: Some years after the clanwar he suddenly became a very painful illness because of the animal gene in his body. Shizuka told him to stay in bed so he can heal him, even if it would take some weeks. But Ryo didn't wanted to, so he went away. Some days later he became very sick and felt to the ground. He couldn't move anymore. Blood started to run out of his mouth. He layed there 3 days. He hoped someone would found him but nobody did. He thought a lot in this 3 days and his inner personalities started talking to him. And they aren't really nice to him... On the fourth day Shizuka found his dead body.
