He is powerful shinobi feared and Renowned around the world for his unique and devastating combat prowness and his Ruthless way of brutally and savagely of dismantling his opponents combining that and his otherwordly power earned him the the name of the Heavenly Yaksha (天夜叉, Ten Yasha, English TV: Heavenly Demon) and to those that know his real identity Shiryū of the Rain (雨の志木, Ame no Shiryū, English TV: Shiryū of the Bloody Rain).
Shiryū is shown to be a kind and caring person with a deep sense of loyalty, great charisma, and skill in negotiation. He see the people of Konoha as a part of his own family. He was also shown to be a very wise and insightful. It was he who first believed that all Shinobi should show true loyalty to each other, and that a Leader must be willing to put his life on the line for his people to set an example for all others this was later shown to be mearly a small part of his creative mask.
He has a very jaded and emotionless approach towards the tragedies of war as a way to cope with it, to the point of light-heartedly joking about them, as seen from his cheer at having "squashed the pests" during his mission to Kiri, which further demonstrates his knack for reversing the situations he finds himself in.
Beyond his more serious disposition, Shiryū is something of a notorious flirt and playboy. Having an immense interest in beautiful women, he tends to charm his way into their good graces, and attempt to woo them over. Additionally, he isn't above less dignified advances either, as seen in his tendency to focus on the appealing aspects of the ladies around him. Even still, He has his good points in dealing with women as well. Whenever he senses a woman may be in trouble or in need of help, he usually ends up being one of the first, if not the first in general, to come to their assistance. This goes as far as standing up for a lady who he feels may be insulted or emotionally abused.
Alongside his womanizing behavior, Shiryū is something of a trouble-maker, often being one who enjoys causing mischeif among his friends and companions. As he is of the exuberant sort, playing games with others, usually at their expense, is quite commonly seen. This usually involves some kind of trick, like knocking out others and assuming their role and position, or coming up with schemes to further his own goals, with a bit of playfulness added in. Usually, due to Shiryū shady habits, he often ends up easily lulling others into a false sense of security, either through taking advantage of their low intelligence, trusting natures, or manipulating their emotions, and will then show his true colors when least expected. Among some of his favorite pastimes is making backdoor deals with others, either for the fun of it, to gain some kind of profit, or even both at once. This can range from selling private information or possessions to others, to making secret plans with comrades to ensure the deal's success. This is such a a common habit of Shiryū, that his allies has often become wary of him whenever he appears to have hatched a new idea.
Coupling his love of dark dealings, Shiryū has something of a fondness for gambling. This was most obvious when he expressed how he enjoyed his visit to many casino's along side his father sometime before Attending starting a mossion. Typically, when not busy with his other hobbies or activities, he tends to enjoy making bets out of any competition that comes up. He once tried making a deal with a older woman that if he could best her in a game, that she'd go out with him. Most of the time however, Shiryū tends to gamble money or possessions through more traditional means, such as craps, billiards, card games, or even roulette. Given Shiryū's willingness to hit below the belt at times, he usually finds a way to turn even a lost bet into a victory. Though whether he gets caught doing so or not usually depends on the people he's with at the time. This habit characterizes him so well, much like his other interests, that his friends tend to consider any bets or deals with him to be "deals with the devil, but he rarely shows any hesitation in making low blows when he feels like it. All in all though, given his manipulative skills and unpredictability, people somehow end up forgetting his past transgressions and will continue making bets and deals with him, whether for their own good or not.
When caught in the middle of any act, he tends to play dumb. Given his manipulative abilities, He tends to know how to get people to sympathies with him the most, depending on whom he talks to. When flirting with an older woman back in his teenhood for example, he'll usually try to compliment there on her looks to get out of any trouble that may arise.
