Planning to kill Nui Harime for murdering her father.
Ryuko’s mother died after she was born, and her relationship with her father, Isshin Matoi, was strained. Ryuko spent her early childhood living in the dorms of Ox Elementary School as her father lived solely for his scientific studies. Six months before enrolling at Honnouji Academy, she received a message from Isshin, and returned to her home, only to find him bleeding to death with a red Scissor Blade plunged into his chest. Isshin removed the blade and offered it to Ryuko, telling her that with the blade she would able to fight in his place and find the killer. Before Isshin could provide Ryuko with further information, she ran off after spotting a shadowy female figure wielding the other half of the Scissor Blade. Ryuko, unable to apprehend the fleeing woman, was left to watch her home burn to the ground and her father with it as the long-haired assailant detonated a previously planted explosive device. Vowing revenge, Ryuko became a vagrant looking for clues behind the woman’s identity and whereabouts.
Ryuko displays herself to be a fierce and stubborn school girl. She is seemingly not afraid of anything, which is demonstrated by how easily she stands up to Satsuki Kiryuin and demands her questions to be answered. She also shows no fear when she fights with the Boxing Club president who clearly overpowers her. Later on, she is shown to be quite embarrassed when she is forced to fight in her very revealing outfit, though she overcomes her embarrassment, showing that while she is not afraid of fighting to her death, she is quite conscious of her body. She also shows fierce determination in finding her father’s killer. Her stubbornness was taken up to ridiculous levels when she managed to free herself from Ragy?’s mind control by punching herself on the cheek. This same episode, however, has one of few demonstrations of shock on her part, when Ragyo defeats Satsuki, rips out Ryuko’s heart and reveals to be her mother.
is a talking sailor uniform that Ryuko finds beneath her house. He is a Kamui an outfit made entirely of Life Fibers, which provides its wearer with superhuman abilities in exchange for their blood. Initially, it absorbs a large amount of her blood and only allows her to act for a limited time, however, it is soon able to fully synchronize with Ryuko as she gets over her embarrassment of wearing such a skimpy outfit.Whenever Ryuko destroys a Goku Uniform, Senketsu absorbs its Life Fiber. Mikisugi later reveals that Issei Matoi designed Senketsu for Ryuko so that they can go against the propagators of the Life Fibers
Senketsu battle form
Remarkable strength: Ry?ko is able to take on multiple One-Star students by herself, without the need to wear Senketsu, Also, it appears that she is becoming stronger as explained by Senketsu. Even while only having the scarf,.
Life Fibers infusion: Ry?ko body had been infused with Life Fibers, . It is likely that her incredible potential and her natural ability to synchronize with Life Fibers was a result of this. Ry?ko has also demonstrated resilience and superhuman healing on par with Ragy? herself.
Former Powers and Abilities
Scissor Blade – Ry?ko’s signature weapon is one half of a giant pair of scissors, which she wields as a one-handed, single-edged longsword. The blade is capable of cutting Life Fibers, which are otherwise indestructible. Ry?ko alternatively uses it as a makeshift tennis racket during her match against Omiko Hakodate. She obtains the second half of the Scissor Blade after snatching it from Nui Harime
Decapitation Mode – While using Life Fibers Synchronize, Ry?ko can mechanically extend her Scissor Blade into a two-handed sword. Not only is the blade’s length doubled in this form, but its strength increases exponentially and is able to slice far beyond its normal range. This ability is frequently used in preparation for a Fiber Lost.
True Life Fibers Synchronize – After Ry?ko invades the Great Culture and Sports Festival and fights Nui once more, her original Life Fiber Synchronize evolves thanks to her own self-improvement and she becomes completely one with Senketsu. In this state, Senketsu glows with intense power and they reach levels of strength and speed.
