Ken Masters (Japanese: リュウ, Hepburn: Ryū) was the son of a rich hotel tycoon owner who had attained a vast fortune as a result of his business endeavours. When Ken was 12 years old, his father wanted his child to learn discipline as he felt that his son could grow up to become a spoilt brat that leeched the family fortune. Thus, he sent his boy to Japan to train under his best friend which was a mysterious karate master known as [[Gouken]]. Initially, Ken did not want to learn from Gouken and instead wanted to return home in the United States but over time he came to respect his tutor. During this time, he met his master's adopted son [[Ryu (Street Fighter)|Ryu]] and enjoyed his company with him pulling pranks on him with this often getting Ken into a lot of trouble. Ken and Ryu over time came to be the best of friends and each others rival in their training in the martial arts.
