My strength comes from training, not from some curse in my blood.
— Ryu Hayabusa

Ryu Hayabusa was a deadly and skilled member of the Dragon Lineage and part of the Hayabusa Clan. Ryu was trained from his childhood to be unforgiving and merciless in combat, and was an exceptionally gifted swordsman and fighter. Seeking to prove himself worthy of his Lineage and gain the respect of his fellow clansmen, Ryu began to travel the world at the age of 18, battling the forces of Bladedamus and his villainous cult alongside his father and fighting Emperor Garuda as he came to age. At the age of 21, Ryu was finally entrusted with his clan's iconic weapon- the Dragon Sword, while his father left to train.'

Despite his best efforts, Ryu is deceived by his uncle Murai and his Shadow Ninja clan, leading to the burning of the Hayabusa Clan village, the death of Ryu's best friend Kureha, and the theft of the Dark Dragon Blade, an object the clan was sworn to protect, by the Greater Fiend, Doku. Appearing to fall in battle, Ryu was revived by the Falcon, the animal spirit of his clan, and returned to reclaim the sword and avenge his clan, cutting down Doku, Murai and anyone else that stood in his way, discovering the true power of the Dragon Sword and gaining an arsenal of new tools, weapons and abilities along the way.

In the years that followed, Ryu began to oversee the reconstruction of the Hayabusa Village while training Kureha's younger sister, Momiji, as his apprentice. A later quest to investigate the actions of the rival Black Spider clan in Tokyo, uncovering a plot to revive the fallen Archfiend and wipe out the Hayabusa Village once again. Returning too late to stop his home's destruction, Ryu sets out to kill the five Greater Fiends; Alexi, Elizabet, Volf, Zedonius and Genshin.

He eventually becomes an ally of the Japan Self-Defense Force to help them take down a Terrorist threat, along the way finding himself cursed with the Grip of Murder, an alchemical curse that covers his right arm, causing him great harm that increases with each life that he takes. After a long journey, Ryu is able to purge himself of the curse and continue with his adventures, fighting rival ninja clans and fiends for years to come.

While Strider was more advanced. Ryu's weapons being made from magic nullified that advantage. Along with fighting far tougher enemies then Hiryu, Ryu has the battle won.
