Tachibana Ryu was born a gifted individual in the Hapes Cluster. He has seen a career from military to trader. From Noble and then back to wanderer.
Born to Hiro and Fumi Ryu, Tachibana was a gifted child. At the young age of 4 he was already understanding the basics of spaceflight. Enrolling into a school for exceptional students at the age of 10. Tachibana during this time excelled in all fields. His teachers would describe him a student who had troubles with authority. Tachibana's parents during this time were killed in mysterious circumstances after Tachibana turned 14. Tachibana believed it was the school eliminating his family due to his strong family values and the inability to cut ties with them. Tachibana dropped out at 15 due to differences of opinions. Now an orphan and living on the street Tachibana roamed the underworld of Hapes. During that time he spent racing swoops and skirting the law. Tachibana during his childhood learned both theoretical knowledge in the classroom, as well as practical out on the streets.
At the Age of 18, Tachibana was charged with multitude of crimes due to being apart of the swoop gang. During his open and shut court case he was given two options. Join the Navy or face 25 years imprisoned. Tachibana who wished to live free chose the first option with very little hesitation. Tachibana spent the next 4 years of his life in the Hapan Navy. During this time he excelled above his peers showing skill that no one his age should possess. Tachibana trained with the best of the best in all manners of combat. He further developed his flying skills in a multitude of ships. During a routine mission Tachibana lost power to the vessel he was piloting. Adrift in space living off of emergency supplies made him understand he wished to do more then be a cog in the military complex.
After rescue Tachibana turned in his resignation and took the small amount of credits he received and began trading. He slowly worked his way up and ran an extensive fleet of ships for both practical and collectible purposes.
Tachibana competed in Krieg's Run Racing. During these races he was sponsored by VP Capital Investments and took 2nd place during the Fourth Race of Year 14. Then again taking 2nd place overall for the Third Season.

Tachibana was appointed Chairman of Tamra Royal Excavations on Day 350. At the same time he after help he was able to overcome his Ryll addiction. It was according to Elegos Ryder one of the requirements to take over the position. He would restructure a large part of the company and make it function as a proper arm of the Archduchy of Tolonda.
