Falling in love at first sight with Ryouma when he saved her from her seal on a certain mountain, a fine lady who stalks Ryouma with the excuse of repaying the favor. Strictly speaking, she is not a dragon, but a lesser specter more closely related to snakes and serpents.
In the closing days of the shogunate, perhaps she had a slight hand in the shadows of his grand enterprise. Or perhaps not. By the way, in Ryouma’s last moments, she was unluckily away, so she was unable to save him. Giving into her sadness, she faded into the depths of the ocean, never having the chance to become a dragon and rise to the heavens.

Oryou appears as a pale young woman with long, black hair and red eyes. She wears a pitch black sailor uniform with a pink ribbon around the neck, and a black scarf styled after her dragon form's scales. For her legs, she wears pink leggings with no shoes.

Although she appears to quickly defeat Archer, she is disabled in a single shot. They manage to retreat with the appearance of the Fuhrer and his army of Servants.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
Oryou shows the ability to deflect the blows of a Servant with her bare hands in human form. While able to easily overpower Demon Archer, her level of Mystery allows her to be easily defeated by Archer's Unifying the Nation by Force - Innovation Skill. Her saliva seems to have powerful healing capabilities, being able to remedy any injury.
In reference to her Divinity skill, Oryou describes herself as extremely hard, with soft fair skin that no blade can penetrate. Her hair, so long that it drags along the floor, is also hard to the point of shaving off the ground.

An autonomous human-shaped Noble Phantasm that normally takes the form of black-haired woman named "Oryou", she transforms into a giant dragon upon release of the True Name.

His partner, Oryou, is not that historical figure, but a rebellious something that had been sewed on a certain mountain while in a sealed state. She was released when Ryouma ended up pulling out the seal's pike in a youthful indiscretion.
The black-haired woman who follows Ryouma by his side, Oryou.
Having fallen in love at first sight with Ryouma upon being saved from her sealed state in a certain mountain, she forced herself at his side(1) under the pretext of repaying the favour. Strictly speaking she is not a dragon, but a mizuchi or an orochi that is closer to a mononoke - anyway, a lesser existence than a dragon.
Maybe she supported achievements during the Bakumatsu from the shadows. Or maybe not.
Incidentally, she was unfortunately away back when Ryouma met his final moments, and thus was unable to save him.
Lost in sadness, she disappeared to the bottom of the sea without people knowing, never turning into a dragon and ascending to heavens.
Level 5 Bond
----I didn't want to cut down anyone,
nor I wanted to shoot anyone.
At first, it was for the sake of the kids in the neighbourhood, then for the sake of his hometown friends, and finally for the sake of the country of Japan.
A softhearted person by nature, from beginning until the end, he did nothing but continue to rush across the era for the sake of somebody else. Loved by some, hated by others, he would ultimately leave this world after being ruthlessly killed, but he neither resents nor regrets that. From beginning until the end, he dreamed about a world where everybody could live at ease. That was all there was.
(1) the term used here is the same for "a woman who forced her husband into marriage"
(2) roughly, 'like a soaring dragon'
