The first interesting fact about Shiryu is that he is the former warden of Impel Down Prison. In the flashback story, Shiryu is a subordinate and partner of Magellan, who is the leader of the Impel Down prison. However, Shiryu is a terrifying figure who often kills prisoners. And what is no less terrible is that he massacred prisoners for fun.
This was what later forced Magellan to imprison his colleague. Shiryu was not imprisoned in level 5 but in the lowest level i.e. level 6. The reason, according to Magellan, what Shiryu did was an act of madness. It is unknown how long Shiryu served as chief guardian. However, considering that Magellan knew Shiryu so well, it meant that he had probably been around long enough.
