Ryo Akiyama´s reality nº 12 counterpart is a digidestined called…Ryo Akiyama!
In this reality Ryo is the Digidestined that holds the crests of Light and Hope and owns his own Patagato pair and he´s certainly quite different from his tamer counterpart.
He´s bolder, much more assertive than the tamer and does no waste time to get the job done. Born a genius he also took the Bill Gates and Steve Jobs route: by the time he was 19 he left college and started his own software company and by the time he was 20 he was a billionaire as well. The name of his company is…HYPNOS. Like the reality 03 Hypnos it is situated in the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building although it is advertised as just another Microsoft-type company instead of an organization. In fact, this Hypnos has nothing to do with the government.
He founded it with Alexander McCoy , Yggdrasil´s human host, as a mean to monitor the activities between the Digital and Real world. Ryo acts , in public, as the genius yet somewhat irresponsible president of the company while Alex secretly runs the Digital business with his team (which consists of the AU versions of the tamers themselves)
The government is wary about Akiyama´s activities and his relation with digimons and several times sent its spies to the company and steal its secrets. One of them is none other than a fella named Mitsuo Yamaki…
