Legacy 111: Penny Dreadful

Portrayed by

Chris Pang

"Dahlia has a lot of powerful and important friends. Having her as a friend could get you far in this business."
—Ryuu luring Sofia.

Ryuu was a snake-like demon and second-in-command to Dahlia, a demon who collected souls through Faustian deals.


When Dahlia became bored with her business in LA, Ryuu informed her that he had found a perfect new place in San Francisco, the old P3. After she decided to buy it, Ryuu prepared the club for its grand opening. When Penny and Julian went to the club to vanquish Dahlia, Penny was discovered and brought before Dahlia. When she refused to sign a deal, Ryuu threatened to kill an innocent girl under orders from Dahlia.

Unknown to the demons, Wyatt had secretly infiltrated the club by glamouring into a demon. When Ryuu threatened to kill the girl, he and Penny spoke telepathically and formed a plan. While Penny neutralized Dahlia, Wyatt orbed the innocent to safety and trapped Ryuu in a force field. He was then vanquished with a potion by Chris.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Active Powers

  • Shapeshifting: The ability to alter one's physical form into that of another person or animal. Ryuu was capable of shifting between a human and a snake-like form, in which he had snake-like eyes, a forked tongue and razor-sharp claws.
  • Super Speed: The ability to move at superhuman speeds.
  • Agility: the ability to possess magically enhanced agility.

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • Ryuu means dragon in Japanese. In fiction, the trope dragon usually refers to the person or being working directly under a greater evil. In this case, Ryuu acted as second-in-command to Dahlia, making him her dragon.
    • This is also why Ryuu was given a snake-like design.
