Zodiac Sign: Sagittarius
Where: Everywhere
Ryo is the main character and hero of this story. He was born and raised at the Hazuki(Bukan)Dojo in Yokosuka by his father after his mother died of an illness when he was three years old. Although Ine-san, the live-in housekeeper, and Fuku-san, his father's student, also live there, his father Iwao was Ryo's only living relation-until of course, Lan Di murdered him. Ryo began training in the Hazuki Style of jujitsu when he was very young. This training enabled him to grow very strong, both physically and mentally. Although he harbors a strong love and devotion to the martial arts, he hasn't expressed much interest in succeeding his father as master of the Dojo. Ryo is well behaved and knows how to handle himself in a fight. Consequently, he's well known in the neighborhood of Yokosuka. Rather stubborn and competitive to a fault, he tends to act impulsively rather than think through a situation logically. A good example of this is the fact that despite knowing how Nozomi Harasaki feels about him, he hides his feelings and acts indifferently towards her. Ryo's quest to avenge his father's death now brings him to Hong Kong, China. What awaits him there..?

Blood Type:
Birthdate: 6th May, 1948

Blood Type: AB
Birthdate: 4th April, 1962
Zodiac Sign: Aries
Where: Kowloon

Yuan is Dou Niu's "partner", his right-hand man. Yuan is a very odd person, for example one of his hobbies is collecting knives. He often blackmails Kowloon's shopkeepers, as they are all afraid of him and Dou Niu. He is a very clumsy person, and doesn't fight with his hands very often, he is sometimes even armed with a chainsaw. Yuan hates all "disgusting things".

Notes: You'll notice that I have referred to Yuan as "he", rather than "she". Well, that's because in the orignal Japanese version, Yuan was a man in drag!! The voice actor was a man putting on a high voice. In the PAL version, however, Sega of Europe thought this was unsuitable, so they changed the voice to that of a woman's, and all "he" references were changed to "she" in the subtitles, however if you know Japanese, you should be able to hear they are indeed saying "he" when referring to Yuan. In fact, in the Japanese version, when Ryo is trying to describe Yuan to the kids outside of the Moonchild Orphanage, he is actually saying "Wears make-up like a woman, talks feminine...". To the informant kid inside the orphanage, Hongji, Ryo describes as "Dresses like a woman, talks like a woman, but has a male voice. Hmm I'm in trouble." Of course this was changed in the PAL version. Also, Ren has a line that is quite amusing--when he and Ryo are being chased by Yuan, he says "Persistent bastard, ain't he?"! (Thanks to Kiyuu for the information) On a side note, when Dou Niu says "What the hell did you do to my partner!!!?"(referring to Yuan), he is actually saying "What the hell did you do to my cuddly love thing!!!?"
