|Real name||Ryushi Hattori|
Ryushi Hattori (服部 龍志 Hattori Ryushi) was the eldest child and only son of Teresa and Keiji Hattori and the older brother of Shizuka Hattori. He was a member of the Hattori Clan and the Masanari Black Flowers. After his mother passed away, Ryushi tasked himself with raising his little sister, becoming something of an idol to her in the process, as she even based her own fighting style off her own. His guardian spirit was a small fairy Konohana. On his little sister's birthday, he was assassinated by an unknown sniper. His death virtually destroyed Shizuka and Konohana disappeared and was never heard from again.
Ryushi had long black hair, usually tied into a braid and purple eyes.
After his mother's passing, Ryushi took it upon himself to raise his baby sister, Shizuka. As a result, he ended up growing up very quickly and is very mature for his age. He was intelligent and caring, something which had a very positive effect on his sister, who idolized him.
Power and skills
As a member of the Hattori Clan, Ryushi was also trained in all fighting styles, specializing in dual-wielding weapons. His main weapon of choice were twin daggers, that are currently used by his sister as secondary weapons. He was also capable of spiritual powers with his partner, Konohana. He also possessed the Guardian Spirit Sense, which he shared with his grandfather and sister, though his was far more advanced than Shizuka's and was able to determine both the element and form of a nearby spirit.
Ryushi was the first born son of Keiji and Teresa Hattori. Because his father and uncle gave up the position of heir to the Hattori Clan, Ryushi was chosen as the next heir as his father was the first born son and Ryushi himself was the first born son of Keiji's children. Ryushi had a very close relationship with his mother and was devastated when she passed away. As a child, Ryushi was partnered with a small guardian spirit named Konohana.
After the death of his mother, Ryushi took it upon himself to raise his little sister, as his father was already so busy with the family and trainees. He was kind and encouraging to her and made a huge impression on his baby sister.
One day in the city, Ryushi was out with Shizuka when he was suddenly killed by a sniper, shot right in the right eye. Due to the lack of a wood spirit powerful enough to successfully perform resurrection, Ryushi could not be revived. Konohana blamed herself for not being strong enough to save him and left Ueno in despair after he was killed, never to be seen again.
