Ryougen Homuraya (炎屋 燎原, Homuraya Ryōgen) is the banchou of the Koutou District. He is the Bakunetsu (Heat Burst) Banchou. His motto is "anyone whose not hot-blooded should die!" He is a member and possibly leader of the Five Dark Vows. Due to him always being hot-blooded he is always yelling when he speaks, due to his weapon of choice he has quite a bit of heat resistance. He is a man that never backs down and can only 'explode' into battle, since backing down to him means defeat and those who are defeated aren't hot-blooded. To him hot-blooded means "To live life facing your goals with unwavering effort and bursting forward with fighting spirit" since many people in Japan look back they are not hot-blooded to him and to him have no value. He admitted defeat when he backs away from Akira during their fight.


Homuraya is a harsh man and always yell out what he said and he is a hot-blooded man who believe if nobody is hot-blooded they should die because he think if they hot-blooded they can do anything. After he was defeated by Akira he calm down a bit but still have his hot-blooded attitude. Despite this he is shown to care a lot for his teammate.
