Reika Tsumura, also known as the Dragon Empress, is a Professional Duelist and the girlfriend of Zane Truesdale. Reika, as her title states, duels with a Dragon Deck, her ace being Red-Eyes Darkness Dragon. She is also the mother of Jasper Tsumura.
Reika meets Zane after he finished Duel Academy and befriends him. She doesn't begin to date him until months before the GX Tournament.
When it comes to her appearance, it is clear that Reika got her looks from her mother. Reika is a slim and slender young woman with shoulder-length crimson red hair, her bangs almost covering her bright blue eyes and slightly tanned skin.
Reika tends to keep to herself. She is afraid people will judge her because she became a teenage mother, so she tends to not tell people about her son.
After meeting Zane (before his losses) she learned to not listen to what people think and began to take Jasper with her.
Despite everything that's happened to her and what's happening with Zane, she loves a good duel.
Reika is a very skilled duelist, capable of working with strong and weak cards easily. She can adapt to most situations and can improvise with whatever she has on hand. Reika is also multilingual, capable of speaking and writing fluently in Egyptian and Japanese, she sometimes says things in Egyptian. Reika is also a skilled martial artist, having a third-degree black belt in karate. She is highly athletic and very physically fit and is a gifted acrobat and can easily maneuver her body in complex movements. Reika also has a Photographic Memory.
