Ritsu is an alternate universe version of my character Lafayette from my story Nerdy and Jock. Here, Ritsu is a Japanese student studying in an American college in the early 1920's. They have an interest in photography, cinematography, and the performing arts.
Aside from being a college student, Ritsu works at a speakeasy/nightclub as a singer/performer in the evenings. They're also Dmitri's roommate--they see Dmitri as their closest friend and the only one they can truly open up to regarding personal opinions and feelings.
Also somewhere along the way they and Dmitri start an amateur private detective business. (??? random) Between the two of them, Ritsu's role typically involves gathering intel and making connections with (often seedy) people.
(note: I generally use gender neutral pronouns for them, but in-universe Ritsu uses he/him pronouns when presenting as male and she/her pronouns when presenting as female.)
