Akuma was once known as Dairyu and his brother Ryuken were two men from the Tengen Tribe During a drought, the two of them worked to find a way to grow food without water. Upon finding a way, they ended the lack of food in the tribe for many years.
Dairyu then felt that they can usurp the Tengen Tribe leaders if they hold the soulution over thier heads. He felt the drought was caused because of their failure to lead, and tht he could do much better. His brother felt differently and they fought. Dairyu killed his brother. but his usurping failed, and was eventually exiled to land far from the Tengen Tribe lands. To get his revenge and take back his people, he tried to create a fruit that would give him ultimate power. This was the Golden Fruit. Eventually, he created the Yamiryu on his seclusion as an army for him to command as they usurp the Tengen leadership, Here is where Nero is born, and grows.
As it turns out, Nero was often neglected as a child by Dairyu. and was often raised by the Yamiryu around him. This caused him to grow up feeling like he has something to proove, and Ryu learns that Nero mostly just wants to be seen as worthy in his father's eyes. After Akuma was killed, the Golden Fruit created the Silver Ninjas and the Forest Residents. Dainin Ichigo of the Silver Ninjas creates the Shuriken Seeds, and Nero uses this as an opportunity to impress his father, causing the war between the two factions.
Ryu, know with the knowledge of the forest, goes to look for the legendary shurikens, but Raizo intercepts him and fights him
