Ryu Nakanishi (ミミズクの竜)
Simple, solid and steadfast Ryu is the pilot of the Godphoenix and acts as general backup. He the only member of the Team with surviving family (his father and younger brother, Seiji), and the others give him special treatment, trying to keep him from getting hurt or killed, because of it. This often frustrates him, as he'd like a bigger part of the action. Ryu is the typical Japanese "country boy"—his accent and way of speaking are extremely regional. He loves the ocean and enjoys fishing, sailing or scuba diving. He always seems to be either eating or hungry, though his massive bulk is almost all muscle. One running gag in the series is his horrible luck with women. He is the only character in the series shown actually pursuing a date.

Cover Occupation: Runs a marina (yacht harbor)
