Riza Wildman (リザ·ワイルドマン, Riza Wairudoman) or Liza, is a protagonist of the Princess Resurrection series. She is a teenage tomboyish half-human and half-werewolf girl who has both a werewolf father Volg Wildman, and a human mother. She at first believes that her older brother was murdered by Hime, but later reconciles with Hime when she learns what really happened. In order to find who in the Royalty tricked her brother, she stays with and become the servant of the Hime. Being of mixed blood, her strength can't compare to that of a pure breed, though she is still physically way stronger than a normal human. Her werewolf blood also gives her heightened senses of hearing and smell. Riza appears to have romantic feelings for Hiro. It was revealed that Riza is a virgin in her conversation with Reiri. She particularly enjoys fast vehicles, much to Hiro's horror when he's dragged along.
"I am Riza Wildman, daughter of the great warrior, Volg Wildman!"
- —Riza Wildman' recurring catchphrase.
Appearance & Biography
Riza is 16 years old, a year younger than Princess. She has short, bright red hair and the golden eyes of the pure breed werewolves. She wears cargo pants (green in anime), military boots, and a fitting short black top that gives her a large amplitude of movement and covers her breasts while revealing her midriff belly, and toned abs. She has slightly tanned skin. She has sharp teeth canines, though not as prominent as the fangs of a vampire.
Being of mixed blood, she can't transform her full body like a pure breed, but can transform her ears (she spouts them in anime while retaining her human ears) and arms up to the elbow (Hiro and several others have noticed that her paws are "squishy", much to her embarrassment). During a full moon, she has slit pupils and receives a huge power-up. Riza also appears to be kind of hot. She is also known as a tomboy.

Manga and OVA
She is a rash, short-tempered, tomboyish, headstrong, tough, flirtatious, carless, and physical girl. Although being smarter than pure-blood werewolves due to her mind being more human, she isn't good at using tactics. In battle she always charges in head-on and tries to power through everything through physical strength. Because she is part of a honorable werewolf clan she dislikes using weapons, sneak attacks and insists on facing her enemies in a certain duel-like fashion, when fighting other werewolves she first states her and her father's full name and expects her opponent to do the same.
Riza is a very tenacious fighter, as she never retreats from a fight no matter how strong her opponent is, for she claim that retreating would be "cowardly and honorless".
She enjoys fast vehicles (much to Hiro's dismay) and is also easily annoyed by Reiri. She is very proud of her clan and her status as a werewolf warrior.
Riza is not embarassed easily, as she has no problem being half-naked in front of everyone after Hiro accidentally removed her panties. She however, gets flustered (and irritated) when people (usually, and especially Reiri) talks to her about Hiro and when Reiri uses him to tease her, suggesting that she is also emotional, compassionate at times, and has a soft spot for him.
She initially believes that her older brother was murdered by Hime, but later reconciles with Hime after learning of what really happened that night. In order to find who was responsible for the death of her brother, she stays with Hime. Riza is often annoyed by Hime's snide remarks whenever she makes a mistake, but is still loyal to her and Hime pays an equal amount of respect to her werewolf ally.
Riza's relationship with Hime is kind of like a love/hate relationship. They sometimes get along and sometimes they don't. However, ever since Riza has been living with Hime, she has been treating Riza like a sevant even though Riza always says "I'm not your servant!" but she is sometimes there for Hime.
She also have reason why she keep accompany Hime's side. She want to take revenge for her brother's death so in order to find the culprit he must follow Hime.
When they first met Riza saw Hiro as a good person when he tried to save a puppy and she has liked him ever since. But sometimes she can be very cold on Hiro. There are times where Riza doesn't want to be bothered with Hiro, like sometimes when Hiro is in danger she is to busy eating to do anything so Hime would have to force her to go save Hiro. However, even though Riza is sometime cruel to Hiro she still has deep feelings for him.
She also showing a bit jealousy when Reiri is teasing Hiro. She seems have a romantic feelings to Hiro.
She and Reiri have like a sister relationship, and like sisters they don't get along with each other until later on. Since their reluctant cooperation to defeat Kiniski, their relationship has been gradually improving. Reiri still calls her "bitch" and "dog" occasionally though. They've both saved each other many times in the story, from Riza saving Reiri from drowning and Reiri saving Riza from Salieri.
They always teasing and fighting each other but despite of their differences when it comes in problems the two of them is working together that showing the hidden bond between them. Reiri and Riza both don't admit they like each other.
Lobo is Riza's brother, whom she cared deeply about. She was the reason why he has to betray Hime, since her life will be endangered if he refuses. His death caused her to seek out Hime and, because she thought Hime murdered him, tries to avenge his death.
Riza and Flandre are often seen fighting against whatever creature(s) that are attacking the mansion. Riza (along with Hiro) is often tasked with hauling a powerless Flandre a long way back to the mansion, something she greatly detests.
She loves Sawawa's cooking, especially curry, and Sawawa seems to enjoy making meals for her everytime she asks for it. Other than that they shared little interactions with one another.
Volg was Riza's and Lobo's Father. She admires her father greatly and takes pride in fighting in his name.
Keziah and Volg were once comrades in battle, and he encountered the latter's daughter during the ghost ship chapter. Keziah often said that the next time they meet will be on a battlefield, though they never really fought each other, instead they treat each other like good friends. Keziah scolds her constantly for working together with Reiri, who is a natural enemy of the werewolves.
Powers & Abilities
Although she is a half-breed, she's still significantly stronger than an average human, being able to lift a truck with ease. Although physically weak compared to pure-blood werewolves, she had defeated many pure-blood opponents throughout the series. The reason behind that is often credited to her having more fighting experience and the fact that her brain is more "human" and can thus learn things quicker. Like pure-blood werewolves, she has heightened hearing and sense of smell. It appears that for her to activate her hearing, she has to transform (Manga or OVA) or sprout out (Anime) her werewolf ears on top of her head. So far she is shown to be invincible (or at least much more resilient) under a full moon.
- Arms: By transforming her arms into a big, white wolf paws with five fingers, she fights her enemies in a close combat.
- Speed: When in come in speed Riza is the one of the bests, she using it as an advantage to her enemy.
- Full Moon Boost: When the moon is in full form her werewolf abilities will increase.
The fact that Volg had a daughter with a human is well known among the werewolves, though many don't know Riza's identity until she states her name. Growing up under the great warrior Volg Wildman, Riza took pride in being a werewolf warrior herself. She was very close to her brother and grew to become very proud of her family. However, she lost all her relatives and the only one left is her brother Lobo Wildman but later die in order to protect her.
