Ryuustrike is a slender, quite handsome, muscular, likeable, sweet (yet he hides it with fake arrogance), gentle, long-haired, broad-shouldered, fluffy, long-limbed, agile, lithe, nimble, kind, ambitious, good-natured, alert, observant, gray tabby tom with white paws, a light brownish-gray muzzle, large, rather clumsy black paws, long, light green, scaley wings, a few scattered patches of light green scales, and timid, sharp, alert, brilliant, pale green eyes.
He is a warrior of FallenClan.
When he and his brother were a moon old, Amberscale was killed by Gingerclaw and they were taken to Past-Time Grove.
Ryuukit and a she-cat, Heartkit, were put into growth chambers and aged to about nine moons so they could begin mating. A link was created between the two cats.
Once he was aged, Wetfeather, one of the older toms, taught him about Past-Time Grove, making him an unofficial mentor.
While waiting to be forced to mate with Dawnpool, he tries to block out the image of the himself mating with Dawnpool, hurting her, with Dawnpool having kits over and over again.
He and Aoipelt later discuss a vague plan to save the non-Star Cat she-cats.
After he mates with Heartpaw, she gives birth to six kits, five toms and a she-cat. He lies, saying that all of them are toms, then places the five toms, named Rainkit, Icekit, Snowkit, Sunnykit, and Littlekit, in a growth chamber, while the she-kit, named Mintkit, was placed on the FallenClan border.
When he returns, he lies to Webfeather about the she-kit, saying that the kit was a tom and was kidnapped by a fox. Webfeather starts raking his claws down the apprentice's pelt, calling him a mouse-brain. Aoipelt manages to stop Webfeather from hurting Ryuupaw anymore than he already had.
He later saves Heartpaw from being killed by Webfeather for unknown reasons.
He later takes his half-daughter, Rikukit, to a growth chamber to age, thinking that it would be too strange if another kit dissapeared.
He, Heartpaw, and Rikupaw escape Past-Time Grove and meet the prophecy cats.
They later join FallenClan. Shadowstar gives the three of them their warrior names: Ryuustrike, Heartshine, and Rikumist.
He is proud when his kits are made into warriors and an apprentice: Rainglow, Iceglare, Snowcloud, Sunnyflare, Littlethorn, and Mintpaw.
He is later very proud of Mintpaw when she recieves her warrior name: Mintheart.
Ryuupaw is a calm, collected, caring, likeable, sweet cat who tries to hide it all with fake arrogance to prevent himself from being hurt by Webfeather.
His role model is Aoipelt.
