  • Riku with his Cloak on
  • What he looks like under the Cloak and his pet Jin


Riku is usually calm and collected, often seeming apathetic when he’s around new people. However, he can be quite the wild child with people he’s close with. This changes when he is threatened or any of his friends are threatened. His calm demeanor drops and he takes on an almost psychotic personality, having no trouble killing the person (or people) threatening him or his friends. Riku has habit of cracking his fingers when he becomes upset or angry. After being accepted into the city he hopes to become the #1 probender in the solo league and learn the ultimate technique, energy bending, so he can give people who want to bend the opportunity to.


Riku was the son of earth-bending mother Avani and non-bending father Ryuu. The family of three lived happily in the Earth Republic and though they weren’t rich, they made enough to give Riku a home that he deserved. At the age of four Riku’s father decided that his son should at least learn the basics of martial arts because even if was a bender there was the possibility that he might get chi blocked. So Riku learned and at times practiced his own moves to fit his style of fighting which is more focused on agility and flexibility.

At the age of six Riku received a special birthday present from his dad. His father, who worked with his father at local smithery made him a pair of twin daggers for his birthday, a present he will forever cherish. While Riku was living the “good life” it was not meant to last. It was later that year that a terrible tragedy occurred to him and his family. It happened when he was out on an errand. A noble boy accidentally into him on his way home and told him to say sorry. Riku trefused because it was not his fault that the man bumped into him. The noble boy was so furious that he shot an earth bomb at riku and in that moment riku’s air bending powers made them known as he redirected the bomb up and sent a blast at the boy knocking him into a puddle of mud humiliating him. Then as riku turned to leave the noble shouted that he would destroy everything he ever loved and right then riku had the sudden urge to kill the noble but decided not to because he thought he was bluffing, but later found out that he was not. Slowly but surely the noble made true on his promise eating away at their wealth and happiness and it got so bad that his parents committed suicide leaving riku all alone and the shock of knowing that their death’s were his fault caused his psyche to split causing him to develop a almost psychotic personality that is activated when he or people he cares about is threatened.

After the death of his parents his parents riku was taken in by some relatives on his mom’s side in the Northern water tribe and lived with them while he trained in his air bending and martial arts improving his strength and agility. When had turned thirteen his relatives went and bought him a pet wolf knowing that wolves were his favorite species of animals and riku named him Jin. Everyday riku would go into the woods and play with the wolf cub teaching him how to be sneaky (witch it was quite good at) so he could hunt for food and riku even learned a thing or two from jin and soon they became close friends so close in fact that it seemed like they spoke the same language when in fact they’re just good at reading each others body language and speech. The next year stealing some money to cover living expenses riku decided to run away with jin to republic city to fulfill his dream of becoming the #1 probender Taking his belongings including a mask he made Riku, set out to republic city to start anew.
