Ryou Shirogane (白金 稜, known as Elliot Grant in the infamous English dub) is one of the main supporting characters of the manga and anime series Tokyo Mew Mew (東京ミュウミュウ), otherwise known as Mew Mew Power. He is the son of the late Dr. Shirogane, a scientist who noted that aliens were trying to destroy the Earth and proposed that certain people be injected with the DNA of specific "Red Data" endangered animals in order to save the planet. Unfortunately, Dr. Shirogane was unable to put this plan into action, as he and his wife were killed in a lab explosion, leaving young Ryou orphaned. Ryou was cared for by his servant Keiichiro Akasaka, who helped him restart the Mew Mew project from Dr. Shirogane's research notes. Ryou used himself as the first guinea pig for the experiment, injecting himself in the side of the neck with the DNA of the Iriomote wildcat. Unlike the Tokyo Mew Mew girls. Ryou does not have combat powers; however, he can transform into a cat on cue. (While a cat, he uses the name "Alto.")
