Ouryuu Nakiri, (born as Ryuuta Nakiri), is a second-year high school student at Kuoh Academy and the secretary of the Student Council. He is also the heir of the Nakiri Clan.
Ouryuu is shown to have a calm and friendly personality, as he appeared to the Occult Research Club in a polite manner. He is also very kind as he doesn't discriminate Devils and treats them respectfully. He holds a strong admiration towards Issei Hyoudou and considers him to be his role model.
Sometime before the series, Ouryuu was chosen by the Sacred Beasts, Huang Long, as its inheritor. He subsequently abandoned his birth name and took up his current name, becoming the heir of the Nakiri clan in the process.
He makes his official appearance in Volume 22, where he appears to the Occult Research Club and deliver school related documents to Xenovia. He greets the members of the club and was quite aware that they are Devils and Angels.
He says he's been given a mission from Ajuka Beelzebub to search for the remaining Longinus, Innovate Clear and Telos Karma. Ouryuu then bows his head to Issei and expresses his admiration for him for possessing the Boosted Gear of the Welsh Dragon and overcoming many dangerous situations.

In Volume 23, Ouryuu reappeared alongside Millarca Vordenberg at the Occult Research Club to introduce the Dragon King Tiamat to Issei and other members. Under Tiamat's approval to join Issei's team for the Azazel Cup and his worth of five pawn pieces, Ouryuu lowers his head to Issei and tells him he won't become a devil but he'll fight under Issei as his "Fist" of the "Red Dragon Emperor of the Blazing Truth", which angers Bova. During training underneath the Gremory castle, Ouryuu spared with Issei to show his abilities and his Yellow Dragon & Dragon Pulse. On the day of the match against Dulio, Ouryuu and Elmenhilde wore their crimson uniform and during the match Ouryuu managed to score his team five points.
Powers & AbilitiesEdit
Immense Speed: Ouryuu possesses impressive speed. When combined with his Touki, he is able to keep up with Issei during their training session. Issei even commented that Ouryuu could toy with a High-Class devil with his speed.
Touki (闘気): Ouryuu covers himself in an aura of ki, drastically increasing his offense, defense, and speed. By using this in conjuction with his Dragon's Pulse ability, he can further enhance his Touki.
Yellow Dragon (黃龍, Ouryuu): The Sacred Beast of the Nakiri Clan that has been handed down for generations to the strongest mystic of the clan who is personally chosen by the Sacred Beast itself, along with its name.
- Dragon's Pulse: As the Sacred Beast that represents earth, the Yellow Dragon grants Ouryuu the ability to tap into the "veins" of ki that flow throughout the land. This allows him to use this earth based ki to strengthen his own physical abilities to significant degrees. If Ouryuu fights in a location where the earth is rich, he will have a greater supply of earth based ki to draw from, therefore making him stronger.
- In Chinese religion and mythology, the Ouryuu (Yellow Dragon) in East Asian culture is the fifth symbol completing the Sixiang (Four Symbols). This deity is the centre of the cosmos and it represents the element earth, the Chinese quintessence, as well as the changing of the seasons.
- Ouryuu was created because Ishibumi wanted another male junior that looks up to Issei, similar to Gasper.
