Rika is a fair-skinned girl of average height and weight. She has sleepy, half-lidded lavender eyes and always has a small stoic frown. She has shoulder length straight, violet hair tied in drill-like pigtails. 


On the surface, Rika is stoic, aloof and deadpan. Rika generally shows a complete lack of expression complete with a monotone voice and usually draws a blank when emotions are out on the table, uncomfortable when others talk about them. She isn't a fan of comforting, not being a cruel or apathetic person, but simply having emotional issues of her own that stop her.

As a small child, Rika was extremely timid and shy, always hiding behind her elder brother, who she saw as a best friend than a sibling. Also as a child, Rika was introduced to theater, acting and different types of media. She quickly discovered her love for acting and movies, possibly from watching her mother on TV, who was a famous movie actress at the time.

As Rika grew, her mother left the movie industry and decided to go into business herself with the Haruno Theater, where many from all around would put on plays and shows, young Rika always wanting to help out. All of this changed shortly after Rika turned 15, when the theater went bankrupt, leaving her family with little-to-money. Around the same time, she met a certain incubator.
