|“||Usami, you look even prettier than the last time we've met.||”|
Ryō is a tall person who has chin-length brown hair pulled back and brown eyes.
In his Trigger Mode, like the rest of his Unit, he wears a navy blue shirt and a black shrug jacket and a cross running through the front of his shirt (including the jacket), and black boot pants. It has a Border emblem on each sleeve.
Ryō is a rather friendly and gentle person, unlike his partners; the reserved Kazama and the foul-mouthed Kikuchihara. As they're usually very rude to others, Utagawa is usually the one to apologize for their mean words.
Utagawa has a great deal of respect for his captain, becoming visibly angry when Enedra mocked him and his unit. However, as Kazama is usually frank and therefore unintentionally rude, Utagawa is usually the one to apologize for his words.
Utagawa and Kikuchihara seem to get along well, but Utagawa gets usually worried over Kikuchihara's attitude. Like with Kazama, he's usually the one to apologize for Kikuchihara's rudeness.
Their relationship is unknown.
