Riko Sakurauchi is a second-year transfer student from Otonokizaka High School, the school in which the original Love Live took place. After moving away from Akihabara in Tokyo she becomes neighbors with the leader of the Aqours, Chika Takami. While still living in Tokyo, Riko was a keen pianist and practiced in the same room as former student Maki Nishikino did at Otonokizaka. Chika encourages Riko to join the Aqours after learning of Riko's musical talent. Riko is a member of the sub-unit Guilty Kiss alongside Yoshiko Tsushima and Mari Ohara.

Compared to her cheerful and energetic neighbor Chika, Riko is a reserved and polite girl who enjoys indoor activities. While Riko is usually quiet and mature, she is quite prone to snapping under pressure and spiraling into a panic when stressed. Riko also suffers from cynophobia, the fear of dogs. However, she overcomes her fear after temporarily looks after a puppy with fellow Guilty Kiss member Yoshiko Tsushima.

Riko's hobbies include playing the piano and viola and shows off her musical talents as the composer of Aqours. She also enjoys painting, crafting, and cooking. Riko is also a fan of girls' love and yuri manga, although she tries to keep this a secret from her friends.
