Four Pillars of Ryo Fui (Defunct)
His hair is tied back in a ponytail and has a small moustache.
Ri Shi appears to have a very quiet nature and speaks mainly about state matters with others. He had no issue ordering the assassination of those who pose a threat to the Ryo Faction.
He seems very strict and is a man that can think big and is willing to deal with difficult tasks. He is able to see little signs and changes in behaviour, getting a clear image of the person in front of him.
Accompanying Shou Hei Kun to the region of Sanyou, Ri Shi is placed in charge of administration and his duty is to ensure the region adheres to Qin laws. Puzzled as to the sudden influx of allies to their faction, he finds out that the royal harem has been manipulating things behind the scenes. Thinking over the new information, Ri Shi realizes the dangerous game that Ryo Fui is playing as news of this could destroy him. After killing the informant, he tells Ryo that reliance on the royal harem faction is a double edged sword for their camp.
At the swearing in of the new chancellors, Ri Shi expected to be elected as the "Chancellor of the Left" but is angered when the position is given to Sho Bun Kun. Sai Taku tells Ri Shi to be patient as his time will soon come to be a chancellor.
After the failure of the rebellion of Rou Ai, the faction of Ryo Fui lost a lot of power. So it came, that Ri Shi was stripped all of his titles and privileges and was thrown into prison. There he worked as a normal legalist, until Shou Bun Kun came to question him about a law that could reign all of China. When Ri Shi heard that it was the king who suggested this, he accepted the invitation of Shou Bun Kun to join the kings faction.
