Ryota is a commander in the Heavensong Empire. He is Heavensong's leading general and Empress Tenri's most trusted subordinate. He lost his legs in battle, but he is just as powerful with his replacement prostheses, designed by the great craftsmen of his country.
An unwaveringly loyal supporter of his empress and his nation, Ryota is committed to the protection and preservation of Heavensong. He is quick, both in body and mind, and a superb strategic thinker.
Ryota is a man of honour, raised from a young age to value the qualities of integrity, virtue and loyalty above all else. At the age of four, he began his education at the Koganetake Academy, where he studied literature, arithmetic, engineering and the arts, alongside military strategy and martial arts. He graduated with the highest honours at the age of 16, two years earlier than most Koganetake alumni. He entered the army immediately upon graduating, and rose quickly through the ranks.
He lost his legs in a border skirmish when he was 22. While this might have led many to falter in their dedication, it only doubled Ryota's resolve. He sought out one of the finest swordsmiths in Heavensong, a man by the name of Takeshi, and asked him to design and forge his bladed legs. Once they were made and fitted, he spent thousands of hours training himself to walk, and then to fight, once more. It's been five years now since he lost his legs, and through his courage, hard work and tenacity, he has become the most esteemed and respected commander in the imperial court.
Ryota's Groove is Blade Dash. When used, Ryota dashes through multiple enemy units, dealing damage to them in the process.
Blade Dash allows Ryota to deal potentially enormous damage should the enemy's units be arranged correctly. He can use his own units to try and achieve the perfect arrangement before activating it.
