Not much is shown of Moriyan, but it seems he is more well mannered then his friend, as he usually uses his head in heated situations, as shown when he was didn't fight against Jiro. He is also shown to be loyal to Kiichi always warning him about incoming threats, such as Shimakin and the Osome brothers.

He had then seen for himself Kiichi and Mitsuhide's handshake, at first believing that they were doing it to test their strength but actually doing it to find an opening in their opponent, to which had led to a near fight between the two, but it was broken up by Takako who had left with Mitsuhide. Kiichi had then showed Moriyan that he had picked up Takako's student identification and planned to use it as an excuse to meet her again.
Moriyan was next seen with Ishige, and had spyied on Kiichi and Mitsuhide's match, watching in awe as the two fighters fought with all their might, which had lead to Mitsuhide becoming the very incarnation of Asura himself, but ultimately leading to Kiichi's victory do to a well placed Hashin Shou, taught to him by his father.
