Shoryu is the king of En. Like Youko Shoryu is a taika from feudal Japan approximately 500 years ago. He was originally the leader of a clan and after it was wiped out he was taken by Enki to rule the kingdom of En. Though En was originally in terrible condition his 500year rule has led to an extremely calm and prosperous nation. Shoryu helped Youko by providing her with an army to retake the kingdom of Kei and rescue Keiki. As a fellow taika Shoryu feels that he should help guide Youko in her new life.
