Ramon Kasumi (霞 羅門 Kasumi Ramon), later known by his dharma name Ryūken (リュウケン), was Kenshiro's adoptive father and the 63rd successor of Hokuto Shinken. He was also Kenshirō Kasumi's half-brother, since Kenshiro was born from a different mother.

Souten no KenEdit

Young Ramon Kasumi first protected Aya Kitaōji from hired thugs, later serving as a bodyguard to Pan Yuling from the Du Tianfeng's Tàihú Bāng gang during her stay in Japan. Ramon is later revealed to be Kenshirō Kasumi's half-brother, since Kenshiro was born from a different mother.
In the year 197X, he was present at Kenshiro's birth and named him after his older brother because they both had a Big Dipper-shaped birthmark. His refers to his older brother as the "Strongest Hokuto Shinken warrior" who is as "mighty as the blue sky above."

Hokuto no KenEdit

As a young man, Ryuken successfully battled with Kōryū for successorship of Hokuto Shinken.
Later in life, he adopted and trained Raoh, Toki, Jagi, and Kenshiro as their teacher. After choosing Kenshiro as the next successor, Ryuken suffered a heart attack as he was about to seal Raoh's rebellious fist. Raoh seized the opportunity and killed Ryuken in cold blood. Kenshiro did not know about Raoh's hand in Ryuken's death, having assumed that Ryuken simply died from illness, until Toki revealed the shameful secret during Kenshiro and Raoh's first battle.
Although Ryuken died before the beginning of Hokuto no Ken, he would appear in flashbacks by Kenshiro and Raoh whenever they faced a dilemma, such as Raoh becoming enraged by Juza during their youth and how Ryuken told him not to fall into his incitement trap.
