Under his freecare issues, Rikudō left the house in order to see what does the world offer for his clan's benefits while getting away from the clan's discord (in this case, annoying meetings and paperworks), and do search for worthy opponents for his swordsmanship.
Rikudō is shown as a tall, well-postured young man in his mid-early 20's, showing leans, but muscular-body built, with height of 6'1 ft. Since he is the son of Nurarihyon, he resembles him and he too has long hair that protrudes out the back of his head. Unlike Nurarihyon, however, his hair is purely black and more wavy. Rikudō also has a ponytail and his eyes are an heterchromia, where it is gold amber and red due to his heritages.
In his normal attires, He is always seen wearing a gold-amber haori coat with black stripes, over a red kimono, black-colored hakama pants, white socks, zōri sandals, and carries his hyakimaru on his hand due to its long length.
In a certain period of time, he reveals his human form where he retains all of his features except for one noticeable difference, his long hair no longer sticks up and instead falls down his back tied in a long ponytail. The hair on the front of his head also covers the right half of his face.
Just like his father, Nurarihyon, Rikudō has shown to be carefree man in a state of peace, carefree and laid back, if a bit rude and aloof. But he is also compassionate individual with noble heart who carries his own way of code of honor and conducts to go by. It has shown where he becomes aggressive and protective to those who would hurt his own peoples. Due to this traits, he has unyielding and honorable side, which conveys himself as man of duty and honor, as it was beat into him when he was taught by his father and masters in the clan and his kind human mother who told him to spread happiness with his kind and noble heart to everyone he meets before her imminent departure from this world.
Rikudō has also shown to enjoy fighting and will even seek out strong opponents just to fight them. He has the abit of judging the warriors he come across, gauging their strength in a range from 0 to 10 or even from 0 to 100 if the opponent is really worthy. It has shown that Rikudō has a bit of a desire to become the strongest swordsman even though he desires peaceful days to live. Kyoūya mentioned that his battle-maniac trait can be a little extreme, as he was set on killing him during their battle.
He is also seems to have slightly perverted, playful, and joking personality, being the one who treats his vice-leader, Melfina like a princess, and encourages Enrico to be a little more sociable to others, rather than being a total jackass.
