OOC Plans: Upon arriving to to Republic City, Ryuu shall become a detective for the RCPD. While solving cases given to him, he'll have to adjust physically, and socially, to his new surroundings.


Ryuu is a 6'2 young adult in his early 20's, weighing about 202 lbs and is built like a super soldier. He has unkept, black hair and just as black eyes that glint with intelligence.


Ryuu is a young man who drowns with internal conflict. On the surface, he's very modest and tends to be good at whatever his occupation is. Whatever he sets his mind to, he won't rest until it's fulfilled. As an officer of the law, Ryuu follows it to the letter, as part of his dedication to protect and serve.


Raised in Fire Nation, Ryuu was born to the couple of Hanzo and Li Mei. They were a relatively happy couple who lived in the Fire Fountain City. They never argued, always faithful;they were each other's best friend. When Ryuu came along, their life became even more enticing. They loved him very much and nurtured him to the fullest. Ryuu couldn't have been happier.

Then, tragedy struck. Hanzo and Li Mei, Ryuu's parents, were murdered in front of his very eyes. Murdered by some cheap punk. They were coming from a festival in their home town and decided to take a shortcut home. Unfortunately, it was through the baddest part of town, so it was unsurprising when some mook tried to mug them. However, brave and foolish Hanzo tried to fight off the mugger. He didn't take kindly to that. Ryuu watched hepless as his parents were burned alive, the fire burning chaotically like a demon manifest. He was only six years old and this was the day his childhood had ended. It was then that Light made a vow for justice.

Ryuu was put into the care of a foster home since he had no relatives or guardians that would take him in. As an orphan, Ryuu never had a social life. He never played with the other kids and would become hostile when approached. A few days later, his firebending abilities manifested when he was playing with the lantern in his room. Ever since, he's been busying himself by honing his firebending skills, scrounging for any scrolls or books he can on it and teaching himself. As he became older, Ryuu starting researching and reading about the legal system; law and order, the pursuit of justice. Before long, at the age of 18, he joined the Fire Fountain City Police Department. It wasn't much, but it had purpose for Ryuu.

Ryuu could get the job done, alright. However, his methods were a track. Disobeying orders, striking out on his own, and being a bit too aggressive, etc. This may have earned him scolds from many at the office, but he gets the job done. It wasn't long before he was promoted Detective. Alone, the dead of night, observing the crime scene; that was his passion.

He had been working at the department for almost 4 years before opportunity knocked on his door. The Chief surprised him by nominating him for a transfer to Republic City Police Department. Figuring he had enough cash for a change of scenery, Ryuu nonchalantly accepted. Before leaving, he decided to pay his respects at the sight of his parents murder, almost knowingly that this would be the last time he'd see it. Looking at it one last time, Ryuu turned to board the ferry that would take him to Republic City.


Fire Infantry
Initial Powers
  • Fire Arcs

The user's punches and kicks will automatically create small arcs of fire from them as they strike that spills forward in the direction of the attack.

  • Fireball

The user is able to shoot small blasts of fire in rapid succession toward something.

  • Fire Whip

The user is able to create a belt of flames which they can use to strike and burn with.

  • Heat Control (Passive)

The user is able to increase the heat of the air, objects and liquids.

  • Fire Blocking (Passive)

The user is able to, if timed correctly, break away or deflect other fire attacks.

Basic Powers

(Note: Once a power is chosen, it cannot be changed.)

  • Jet Propulsion (Passive)

The user is able to create intense bursts of flames from their hands and feet which can be used to propel them through the air for a short time. (Achieved after 1 week)

  • Size Augmentation (Passive)

The user is able to disperse their flames and increase their size temporarily; however, the overall heat of the flame is weakened. (Achieved after 2 weeks)

Fire Sage
(Achieved after 1 month)
Initial Powers
  • Fire Blades

The user is able to create thin blades of fire from their melee attacks which are capable of cutting objects as well as burn them. While performing this technique, the user cannot use any other form of firebending techniques.

  • Shield of Fire

The user is able to create a small wall of flames which can block attacks as well as burn objects. Some sharp or dense objects cannot be blocked by these flames.

  • Fire Breath (Exclusive to Fire Sage)

The user is able to create powerful torrents of flames from their mouth by simply igniting their breath. They are also able to maintain the torrent for as long as they can breathe outward. The torrent can only be used from close to mid range, but serves as a rather wide blast. Coming from deep within the body, these flames are also much hotter than normal flames and are nearly inextinguishable. This is said to be very similar to a dragon when it is breathing fire.

  • Flame Vortex (Exclusive to Fire Sage)

The user launches a fiery burst that spirals in a cone shape in the direction it's launched. The burst is rather narrow but can reach up to long distances.

Advanced Powers

(Note: Once a power is chosen, it cannot be changed. Also, Master level powers can only be achieved after 7 months and require 2 open power slots.)

  • Heat Resistance (Passive)

The user gains a partial resistance to normal flames from other people (excluding Enhanced Fire, Fire Breath and Wall of Flames) and natural sources as well as a near complete immunity to their own flames. (Achieved after 2 months)

  • Lightningbending (Passive; requires 2 open slots)

The user is able to focus their fire so effectively that it can become lightning. The lightning is far quicker and more unstable than fire and cannot be blocked or redirected by any means other than another person who can Lightningbend redirecting it. Creating lightning takes a huge toll on the user and if used more than a few times without a large break it will likely backfire on the user and injure them. (Achieved after 7 months)
