"My son's no businessman."
Hideki Kiryu is a character featured in Death Note: Our Truths. He is the father of Haruki and Masumi as well as the husband of Mikara Kiryu. In Our Truths, he is a businessman working in Japan. His role is tertiary in nature, and is not prominently featured. His only signifigance in the story is his connection to the Keen character.
Hideki has a stern face, with many creases. His long and tiring job has also made him look rather weary. His hair is black-grey, his eyes are brown. He has a normal weight, and a normal height. He also has a mustache.
Hideki's personality is traditional. He is the head of the family; only him. He also demands his children to perform well in school, to which Haruki does, but Masumi does not. This then explains his favoritism to his son. He also is quick to anger, and irritable as well as distant. Which all makes him well suited for his job.
In Our Truths, Hideki Kiryu is the father of Haruki and Masumi Kiryu. He is a businessman who spends most of his time at work. His high position has his family well off, living in a good neighborhood. But his job has also led to him to neglect his family, somewhat. So, in the story, his role is not prominent.
However, at work, Hideki meets a promising young man, Keen. And when the two come home one night for dinner, Haruki and Keen meet. And Keen sees something within the teenager, something that even his father could never have guessed.
- Hideki's name is similar to Haruki's in that his means "excellent tree".
