|Japanese name:||玖蘭 李土|
Rido possesses eyes of two different colors (crimson and blue) and when his soul is transferred to a different body, that body has the same eyes. Shortly after the birth of Juri and Haruka's first son, he took the baby and sacrificed it to reawaken their ancestor, Kaname in order to drink his blood.
Family historyHowever, upon Kaname's awakening, his severe hunger led him to attack Rido, leaving him incapacitated. He was arrested and held by the council. However, he was set free and ten years ago, seeking to take Yuki, Rido killed his younger brother, Haruka, with an anti-vampire sword. Kaname attempted to kill Rido, but found he was unable to as Rido was his master. Instead Kaname reduced Rido to the state where he required another pureblood vampire's blood in order to revive fully.
Rido's attackAided by the Ancient Vampire Council and the Hunters' Association, Rido manipulates events from the shadows for ten years by transferring his soul to other bodies and taking control. Rido continued to meddle in the life of Shizuka, by adding her lover's name to the hunter's list. Rido takes possession of Shiki's body and he goes to Cross Academy. After revealing himself, Kaname revives Rido's body using his blood. Following his true body's revival, Rido's servants sense his revival and begin to attack the school students in order to capture prey for Rido to feed on.
Rido attempts to compel Aido to feed upon him, but is thwarted by Yuki. Seeing Yuki's resemblance to her mother, his sister Juri, Rido changes his original desire from eating Yuki (in order to gain power) to taking Yuki as his lover as a replacement for Juri, who he loved but who had never wanted him, having chosen Haruka over him. Rido's life seemingly came to an end when he was defeated by Zero, with the help of Kaname, but it was recently revealed that Rido did not completely die. Instead, he now exists as a phantasmal 'fragment' of consciousness attached to Kaname, who can only be seen or heard by Kaname.
