Romio is a young man of medium height, with short reddish hair and blue eyes. During training, he wears the usual uniform of the Iwatobi swimming club , and during relays he wears green swimming goggles and blue swim briefs with yellow stripes.



Romio was born in New York, lived some time in Tokyo, and then transferred to the Iwatobi High School. In a middle school tournament, he false-started causing that tournament to be their last and this experience resulted in Romio being afraid of starting off the block.
