"I swear on Suiseiken Nagare that I shall protect.... the people that I love!"
―Blades' new catchphrase[src]

Rintaro Shindo (新堂 倫太郎, Shindō Rintarō) is a 23-year-old[1] former member of the Sword of Logos who transforms into Kamen Rider Blades (仮面ライダーブレイズ, Kamen Raidā Bureizu). Practically born into the organization, Rintaro was manipulated into staying with the Southern Base until his defeat by the hands of Ryoga Shindai. Though it required fighting the Neko Megid, Rintaro regained his resolve to fight against the traitor and join Touma's team for good.

History

Early Life

Rintaro training with his master, Kenshin

Rintaro was born orphaned and raised by the Sword of Logos guild. In his youth, he was trained extensively by Kenshin Nagamine, who would eventually perish during the War of Wonder World by Zooous. Rintaro would then inherit his master's Seiken and Lion Senki Wonder Ride Book, becoming the second Water Swordsman.

When Rintaro was 17, he was briefly trained by Ryo Ogami.

Meeting Touma Kamiyama

When the Golem Megid was spawned, Rintaro arrived on the scene, only to witnessed Touma Kamiyama, a “Homo Sapien”, transforming into Kamen Rider Saber. He tracks him down at his bookstore riding a blue lion and asks him to hand over the Seiken Swordriver and Kaenken Rekka. Rintaro explained to Touma that he is a member of the Sword of Logos, a sanction of swordsmen using the power of the Wonder Ride Books to protect the world. He requested the novelist to hand over Brave Dragon, but Touma refused as he claimed that it was important to him.

Rintaro brought him to the Northern Base branch of the Sword of Logos, where he introduced him to Sophia and explained him about the Kamen Riders. Chasing after the Ari Megid, Rintaro demonstrated to Touma by transforming into the Water Swordsman, Kamen Rider Blades. However, the Kirigirisu Megid appeared to the aid of the Ari Megid, leading for Touma and Rintaro to work together to prevent the town from turning into a book. In Wonder World, Blades fought against the Ari Megid and her army of ants while Saber defeated the Kirigirisu Megid using the Jackun to Domamenoki Wonder Ride Book, although Rintaro was surprised he was able to use two volumes. After their victory, Rintaro and Touma congratulated each other for their talents. Mei later arrived with a box of éclairs, revealing Rintaro's love for sweets.

Rintaro would later introduce to Touma the other members of the guild. He first introduced Touma to Kento Fukamiya, both happened to be forgotten childhood friends and the current Kamen Rider Espada. Rintaro also helped introduced Touma to Ryo Ogami, Tetsuo Daishinji, and Ren Akamichi, each operating as Kamen Riders Buster, Kenzan, and Slash respectively.

During an encounter against the Hanzaki Megid, Rintaro would use the Peter Fantasia Wonder Ride Book that was achieved after the Kirigirisu Megid's defeat. He would see Touma simultaneously using Needle Hedgehog and Peter Fantasista together with Brave Dragon to defeat the enemy. After Touma's body was weakened after detransforming, Rintaro warned Touma to be careful when using three Wonder Ride Books together as it could cause a strain to the body even for an experienced swordsman. However, the two were intercepted by the Dark Swordsman, Kamen Rider Calibur. Thankfully, Espada intervened and stopped Calibur's attack long enough for the three to escape.

While Rintaro and Mei explore the city, they both encounter Zooous. Rintaro transformed into Blades and tried to subdue to Megid. Zooous revealed that he previously fought and killed the previous Blades, who was Rintaro's master. This revelation angered Rintaro, leading him to enter the Liberation room in order to train himself using three Wonder Ride Books in order to get strong enough to avenge his master. Rintaro would return in time and reveal his Wonder Combo, Blades Fantastic Lion. However, the training gave Rintaro to time to realize that he doesn't need to focus on vengeance.

Rintaro later formed a pact with Touma and Kento to stick to each other through the end. The three worked together to fight Calibur in their Wonder Combo forms, but was shocked when he discovered that the Dark Swordsman was none other than Daichi Kamijo, the previous Saber and Touma's savior 15 years ago.

As he realizes Kento turning more emotionally unstable given the revelation, Rintaro went to confront him. He did sympathize with the fact he too had lost a father figure in his life but warned him that revenge was not the answer, just as his encounter with Zooous. Unfortunately, Kento wouldn't listen to Rintaro's warnings and would end up growing more and more unstable. Rintaro was wounded after protecting Kento from Calibur Jaoh Dragon.

While Rintaro was resting from his injuries, Kento lamented that he failed both Touma and Luna. Upon hearing the name of their third childhood friend, Rintaro relayed this information to Touma, which caused him to regain his memories, and told him to save Kento. Unfortunately, Touma was too late and discovered Kento in bad condition after fighting Calibur.

Rintaro as Blades joined alongside the Northern Base swordsmen to battle Kamen Rider Calibur Jaoh Dragon, despite not having completely recovered from his injuries. When he was down, Kento arrived to protect Rintaro and took the full hit of Calibur's finisher, which further worsened Kento's condition. Rintaro would then witness Touma's transformation into Kamen Rider Saber Dragonic Knight and cheered him on. However, by dusk, he would see Kento succumbing into the darkness and his disappearing by his very eyes. Rintaro would mourn the loss of his comrade.

Once Kamijo made his returns and enacted his plans to seize the Almighty Book, Rintaro stayed behind in the Northern Base as he awaited for his new Wonder Ride Book to be completed. Using the powers of the Lion Senki, Peter Fanatasista, and Tenkuu no Pegasus, along with King of Arthur, Rintaro transformed into Kamen Rider Blades King Lion Daisenki. He, along with the other Riders, would continue to fight the Megid, while Saber chased after Calibur. Rintaro and the rest of the Northern Base swordsmen would warmly welcome Touma back once he returned from the in the realm of the Almighty Book.

The Sword of Logos Conspiracy

After the death of Kamijo and Sophia's disappearance, Reika Shindai appeared to the Northern Base swordsmen and claimed that Touma has turned against the organization. Although Rintaro wasn't sure to believe Touma, he and his comrades went to confront Touma. When Touma explained to them that Kamijo had a plan to find the traitor within the Sword of Logos, nobody believed him, including Rintaro who had faith in the organization, since it was like a family to him. Rintaro was forced to fight Touma, but did not expect the appearance of the sword of light, Kamen Rider Saikou. In the end, the Northern Base swordsmen were forced to draw back, turning their backs on Touma.

Rintaro and the Northern Base swordsmen were then transferred into the Southern Base branch of the Sword of Logos. Rintaro remained conflicted with Touma's apparent "betrayal", much to disapproval from Reika. When he and Daishinji went to confront the Ousama Megid, he refused to hear Touma's words that the Megid had trapped a human host. However, Daishinji was able to confirm Touma's claims. Although Rintaro was able to believe that the Megid were using human victims, he still denied the fact that there is a true enemy hiding within the guild.

Eventually, both Daishinji and Ogami left the guild to side with Touma, which left Rintaro in depression. His friendship with Touma was left strained and despite moments where he considered repairing their bond, Rintaro ended up returning back to the Sword of Logos, still persistent that they were his "family". Rintaro would also witness Touma acting berserk as Saber Primitive Dragon and Kento's return as the current Calibur in order to seal every Seiken.

When Legeiel attacked the city in his new Forbidden form, Rintaro made the decision to fight alongside Saikou and Buster in order for Touma to tame the Primitive Dragon form. He would witness Touma transforming into Elemental Dragon Wonder Ride Book and proceeds to transform into Kamen Rider Saber Elemental Primitive Dragon. After Saber defeated Legeiel, Rintaro chose not to be with everyone to congratulate Touma as he has some unfinished affairs to settle.

Back in the Southern Base, he speaks with Ren, who was the other remaining Northern Base swordsman that joined the Southern Base. He finds out Ren is leaving the guild, which Rintaro does approves his choice to do so. However, Rintaro opts to stay for a bit longer to settle a certain unfinished affair, which is to investigate whether there really is a mole within the organization itself.

Rediscovering Faith in Himself

One day, Rintaro would speak to Mei alone and told her that he will side with Touma, but he needs to stay in the Southern Base to sleuth out the identity of the guild's traitor. Rintaro returned back to the Southern Base and discovered Reika had Sophia held prisoner, assuming that she is the true traitor of the guild. As he reported this information to Master Logos, Rintaro was left mortified that Master Logos revealed himself as the actual traitor of the guild. Rintaro transformed into Blades in order to stop Master Logos, only to be intercepted by Ryoga Shindai, also known as Kamen Rider Durendal. Durendal would prove to be a match against Blades and Rintaro would've been killed if it wasn't for Touma and Yuri's aid, who learned about Rintaro's plans and arrived to help. The three would escape the Southern Base, barely surviving.

Rintaro was welcomed back in the Northern Base with open arms, even with Mei gifting him an éclair. He has grown admired with Touma after witnessing his ability to separate Megid with Kaenken Rekka. However, the two were left in total despair after finding out Zooous had turned Mei into the Neko Megid. This revelation turned Rintaro emotionally unstable and despite his rekindling friendship with Touma, it was further strained as Rintaro lashed out at him for failing to save Mei.

However, these negative emotions are actually feelings of guilt. Despite being welcomed in open arms, Rintaro still didn't see himself worthy of true swordsman and had lacked faith in himself. However, Touma would disagree and still believed in him. Rintaro, wondering if his words are actually true, requested Touma to duel him with their Seiken. As they continued training, Rintaro's feelings reached Suiseiken Nagare and he was granted the ability to separate a Megid from a human host, although briefly. Even though he still was not strong enough yet, Rintaro was able to regain faith in himself.

When Master Logos broke through the Northern Base's force field, Rintaro joined with Ogami to hold off the Megid that had infiltrated inside the base. He would encounter Zooous in his Predator form, who was desiring to fight the current Water Swordsman. Although Sophia begged for him and everyone else to escape while she held off Zooous, Rintaro's determination to protect his friends allowed the fragment of the Almighty Book to respond to him, and he transformed into Kamen Rider Blades Tategami Hyoujuusenki. With this new form, Rintaro would discover the spirits of the previous swordsmen fighting alongside with him and was able to finally vanquish Zooous. Rintaro would meet the spirit of his fallen master, Kenshin Nagamine, who congratulated him for his efforts. With Zooous' defeat and him gaining a new form, Rintaro would not only find closure in honoring his master's memory, but had strengthened the bond with his friends.

Blades Tategami Hyoujuusenki after defeating Zooous

After the Northern Base's security systems were repaired, everyone congratulated Rintaro for his victory. Rintaro sought to bring back Ren back into their inner circle, so he along with Mei and Yuri went to the city to look for him. Although side tracked, he was able to find Ren, who was being attacked by Sabela. Rintaro took this moment to try out his new form once more and expressed anger with Reika for manipulating them the entire time. Blades Tategami Hyoujuusenki was able to defeat Sabela, although both her and Ren would retreat.

Rintaro would then have another encounter with Ryoga Shindai. The two both transformed and fought against each other, only to be interrupted by Kamen Rider Falchion, whom Rintaro recognizes. Falchion was able to cause Durendel to withdraw, causing Bahato to turn his attention to Rintaro. Blades was able to defeat Falchion, but due to his resurrection ability, Rintaro was no match to the Immortal Swordsman and was knocked out of transformation. Although, Falchion decided to make the killing blow, Rintaro was spared once Touma, Yuri, and Mei arrived.

When Rintaro, Ogami, and Daishinji went off to find Luna, they were suddenly greeted by Master Logos and the Shindai siblings. While Rintaro attempted to fight them off, he was caught in a bind after the Shindai siblings held Ogami and Daishinji hostage and therefore losing Suiseiken Nagare and his Wonder Ride Books. When Master Logos' ritual to summon the Almighty Book was drawing near, Rintaro witnessed Touma succeeding to disrupt the ritual and free every Seiken and Book, returning Suiseiken Nagare back to Rintaro's hands.

Unfortunately, Master Logos was able to gain the Omni Force Wonder Ride Book and transform into Kamen Rider Solomon, proving to be a threat against the Riders. This left the Shindai siblings and even Kento to finally join forces with Touma's team. Rintaro would later bear witness to the creation of Haouken Xross Saber and Touma becoming Kamen Rider Xross Saber.

From then on, Rintaro would continue to stand alongside Touma against Solomon, eventually vanquishing the former Master for good. Touma, Rintaro, and Kento rendezvous as they joined their Seikens together, fulfilling their promise to each other once again as Mei joined in.

Final Battle Against Storious

Despite the victory against Master Logos, Storious remained to enact his plan to destroy the world. Following the death of Tassel, the destruction of Wonder World began to affect Earth. Rintaro participated in minimizing the disaster, but Storious became stronger after achieving the Grimiore Wonder Ride Book and became Kamen Rider Storious. Furthermore, the Megid had resurrected the Four Sages to become his loyal followers. The final battle began to approach, with Rintaro joining Touma, along with the rest of the swordsmen in the final march against Storious.

As they stormed into the Tower of Destruction, Rintaro and the rest of the swordsmen covered for Touma as he reached Storious as he fought of a Lord of Wise. Although he succeeded in defeating it, the battle was too exhausting for Rintaro, causing him to pass out and it was only Yuri's healing ability that allowed him to stand up. Rintaro arrived in Storious' chamber to protect Touma with Kento. He would bear witness to the creation of the Wonder Almighty Wonder Ride Book and the joined his allies the last battle with Kamen Rider Storious. The three Riders defeated Storious, but failed to prevent the destruction of the world. Rintaro and Kento were forced to witness Touma's death as the world disappeared around them.

One Year Later

One year later, Rintaro and most of the swordsmen were restored back to normal. He joined Mei in an award ceremony as she was accepting Touma's award from his published novel, Eternal Story. Upon hearing word that the missing victims that were unaccounted for had suddenly returned, Rintaro joined up with most of Touma's friends as they reunited with their missing friend once more.

Other Events

Kamen Rider Saber: The Phoenix Swordsman and the Book of Ruin

When the Immortal Swordman, Bahato, declared his intent to destroy the world using the Book of Ruin, Rintaro joined with the rest of the Northern Base swordsmen to challenge him. Kamen Rider Blades engaged the horde of Shimi as Saber fought Falchion personally. Rintaro, intent on fighting for the future of all "Homo Sapiens", wiped out the rest of the Shimi army with his fellow Swordsmen before Falchion was sealed by Saber.

Personality

Rintaro appears to be serious and difficult to approach from first glance, but on the contrary, he is actually quite down-to-earth and was willing to teach Touma the ins-and-outs of becoming an effective Kamen Rider, though Touma's rather unorthodox methods of fighting often leaves him flabbergasted. However due to his upbringing, Rintaro has little to no practical experience in everyday culture in general, despite being extremely knowledgeable about it through books. This is made apparent when he arrives at Touma's bookstore for the first time while riding a blue lion because he had read that it is rude to enter with his shoes on. He also demonstrates this through his first time winning and holding an instant camera. Rintaro also has a keen eye for good food, especially after his love for sweets was discovered.

As a child, Rintaro was orphaned at a young age and was raised solely by the Sword of Logos. Through his life-long devotion to the organization, he holds them to a high regard and feels indoctrinated into disbelieving or refusing to hear out any claims of corruption within the organization itself. As a result, Rintaro became unable to leave the organization for the longest time, despite knowing the organization's wrongdoings. When Touma did not hesitate to risk giving up his powers to save Rintaro's life from Ryoga Shindai, proclaiming their close and strong familial friendship. Touma act of kindness, coupled by the revelation of Master Logos' treachery convinced Rintaro to ultimately leave the Sword of Logos for good and join his team.

Rintaro holds great emotional attachment to those he considers friends and family, which extends to not only Touma's team but also to the members of the Sword of Logos itself. He sought revenge against Zooous for the death of Kenshin Nagamine, who he saw not only as a mentor, but also a teacher and a father. Since learning that revenge wasn't the answer, Rintaro fell into guilt for not being strong enough to save Kento Fukamiya from his own acts of revenge. Since learning of Master Logo's treachery and being saved from Ryoga Shindai, Rintaro suffered an emotional breakdown, recognizing his own fears of losing more people he loved. Rintaro also began to evaluate his own self worth after becoming desperate and unable to save Mei from the Neko Megid, believing that saving her was more important than his own life when Touma chose to rescue him instead. When given a full-display of Touma's emotions during their 1-vs-1 duel, Rintaro understood Touma's belief in him and renewed his faith in himself, thus allowing him to finally master Suiseiken Nagare. Rintaro bravery and valor had ultimately rewarded him with the Tategami Hyoujuusenki Wonder Ride Book, which he used to defeat Zoous.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

  • Megid Separation: During the training duel with Touma, Rintaro began to showcase further mastery over Suiseiken Nagare after some rough guidance. While his technique is imperfect, he can combine his efforts with Touma to successfully separate Human and Megid, evidenced when the two rescued Mei from the Neko Megid.Chapter 31: Believing in Strength, Strength Believed In.
  • Spirit Medium: After obtaining the Tategami Hyoujuusenki Wonder Ride Book, Rintaro can communicate with spirits of his predecessors, as demonstrated by doing so with his mentor Kenshin when defeating Zooous. He can also communicate with predecessors of other swordsmen in battle, such as Buster and Espada's predecessors. Chapter 32: My Thoughts, Crystallized.

Abilities

  • Expert Swordsman: As a member of the Sword of Logos, Rintaro is a trained swordsman, demonstrating mastery at using Suiseiken Nagare when fighting his enemies or opponentsChapter 2: The Water Swordsman, Along With a Blue Lion.. After being out of action under Southern Base's command there was a power gap between him and his friends and foes, though through rejoining Touma he had grown stronger, being able to go almost toe-to-toe with Zooous and even outmatch Durendal later on.
  • Indomitable Will: Rintaro has shown on several occasions to have an unshakable will to fight, even against enemies he could not win against. He has had his fair share of moments of self-conflict and questioning himself and his beliefs, but when he makes up his mind he vigorously fights to protect until he is bloody and cannot stand up anymore.

Former Weaknesses

  • Power Strain: During his training at Liberation, Rintaro had to train himself to harness Tenkuu no Pegasus, Lion Senki, and Peter Fantasista, which were three Ride Books of the same element. Although attempting to transform placed a heavy strain on body during his early attempts, he was successfully able to return to the battle overcoming the strain. Chapter 7: The Sword of the King, Lies in Avalon.

Their relationship would end up greatly strained after Reika Shindai denounces Touma as a traitor. Unfortunately for Touma, Rintaro refuses to hear out his claims that a traitor exists within the Sword of Logos, believing that they, the very organization who raised him since childhood, are incapable of such evil. While Rintaro would still refuse to hear out Touma's claims, the former still very much cares for him as a friend regardless of their allegiances. It was not until Rintaro saw the full extent of the corruption within the Sword of Logos for himself did he finally decide to defect and join Touma, mending their relationship for good. Touma also the one that helps him with his insecurities, thus ultimately allowing Rintaro to fully mastering Suiseiken Nagare, just like how Touma does.
    • Mei Sudo: Rintaro keeps Mei out of the riders' activities, but he is tempted by sweets when she's eating. However, Rintaro does admit that Mei is a good information searcher as she was more familiar with modern technology. After Rintaro saved Mei from being eaten by Zooous, Mei developed a crush on Rintaro. Their relationship is greatly strained after Mei decided to follow Touma, who was denounced by the Sword of Logos as a traitor. Regardless, Mei still cares about Rintaro. Eventually, he returns to Mei's side along with Touma for good as their relationship was rekindled.

    • Reika Shindai/Kamen Rider Sabela: Companion of the Southern Base who takes advantage of Rintaro against Touma.

Enemies

  • Zooous: Zooous was responsible for the death of Rintaro's teacher, the previous Water Swordsman, thus earning Rintaro's hatred, causing him to swear to defeat the Megid general at all cost. Rintaro's hatred further intensified after Zooous defeated and belittled him, thanks to the Megid's sheer power. But Rintaro persisted and was able to defeat him after transforming into Blades Fantastic Lion, after he realized that revenge is never the answer. Zooous was further humiliated after Rintaro transformed into Blades King Lion Daisenki and easily outmatched him, thus he resorts to underhanded tactics by forcibly transforming Mei Sudo into Neko Megid. Thanks to Touma help, Rintaro is able to master Suiseiken Nagare and save Mei, something Rintaro ironically thanked Zooous upon. Desperate and furious, Zooous ended up becoming Zooous Predator and wreaked havoc on the Northern Base. However, Rintaro's bravery and valour reached the power of Northern Base and ultimately allowed him to transform into Blades Tategami Hyojuu Senki, which he used to slay his nemesis once and for all.
