Hiryu Rin ( (りん) () (りゅう) Rin Hiryū?)[1], also known as Dragon Shroud (龍帷子 Ryū Katabira?), is a Class 1-B student in U.A. High School, training to become a Pro Hero.


Hiryu has lightly tanned skin and black hair, reaching roughly down to his shoulders, which he wears in a low braid. His eyes are shaped like those of a reptile, and his irises are notably small.

His hero costume consists of light colored knee high boots, a dark vest with white clouds across it and a collar that covers his chin. He has a belt tied around his waist with pouches on the side and he also wears large gloves and a visor on his head. His outfit appears similar to a Jiangshi, his visor appears similar to the talismans commonly seen pasted on their forehead.


Hiryu is willing to work with others as shown during the obstacle course when he suggested for everyone to use their Quirks together in order to clear the way through the fallen 0-point robots. It's notable that Hiryu possesses a serious demeanor when it comes to playing out his abilities into action. He is rather diligent in terms of academic abilities and Quirk functions as well.[2]



Scales ( Uroko?): Hiryu can form scales along his entire body, these both durable and strong and therefore perfect to use as armor in combat. He can also shoot these scales from his body with considerable strength and speed. Someone or something with sufficient force can break through Hiryu's scale armor, which can be evidenced by his scales falling off his skin.
