Being fairly tall, he stands at around 6'0. Kiriyama possess a slender build is not noticeably muscular. He typically wears a black trenchcoat and fedora, and has long blond hair, part of which is tied behind him. Kiriyama has green eyes and pale skin.


For the most part, Kiriyama maintains an outward appearance of aloofness and indifference. He generally seems to be a cold and emotionless individual, but on the inside, he does feel emotions—the most prominent ones being greed and desire for power. Kiriyama is also somewhat sadistic, taking pleasure from killing his enemies and often being quite open about the fact. Wanting nothing less than absolute power, he is willing to eliminate anyone who stands in his way of obtaining it. Kiriyama despises authority, especially the Republic City government, and only follows those whom he deems to be worthy of his loyalty (for a time). That being said, he has no problems with breaking the law.

While Kiriyama may be willing to pledge allegiance to a group, he typically only remains loyal to it as long as he can continue to profit from it in some way. But, when it really comes down to it, he is loyal to no one but himself. He doesn't care too much about honor, seeing it as a fool's prize, nor does he have a sense of morality. Kiriyama has been a perfectionist since the early years of his life, always feeling like he needed to do his best in whatever he does. That led him to master swordsmanship and other combat styles. But the emotion that he feels the most is greed, which was most likely due to his family's poor and low status background.


Born in the slums of Ba Sing Se, Kiriyama's family was poor and lived in a small apartment of the Lower Ring. He often committed petty theft and other crimes during his youth to make up for his family's low status, which resulted in him becoming very greedy. The young man also became an unfeeling and even sadistic individual in the process as he resorted to crime to make a living and survive. If his family was pestered by gangs or other threats, Kiriyama would fight back, even if the odds were against his favor and he would get beat up, being full of determination and pride. He learned early on that you needed to be skilled to survive, and trained himself in the art of the sword for a number of years (and with the assistance of others who knew it better than him). The hoodlum eventually became quite a skilled swordsman as a result and was able to effectively defend himself.

However, he knew that there was nothing for him in Ba Sing Se, not to mention that he had grown to despise the city because of the poverty and the government's lack of concern. That also caused him to generally dislike governments and the law. Kiriyama left the city at the age of seventeen and traveled through the Earth Republic, seeing nothing but poverty throughout the country, which only sharpened his anti-government resolve. Eventually, in disgust, the young swordsman decided to leave the country of his birth behind completely since there was more opportunity abroad. Kiriyama then signed up for the citizenship program of Republic City. The man went there to make a name for himself. Seeing at as a golden opportunity, he sought nothing less than absolute power and wealth, no matter what he had to do to obtain it.
