Build and Skin Color: Mikael is a tall and muscular person thanks to the fact that his grandfather was an ID-SOL. His skin is of a caramel complexion.
Facial Features and Eye Color: Mikael has brown eyes which are more narrow then most others. Mikael has very strong facial features, with prominent cheek bones, and a pronounced forehead.
Hair Color and Style: Mikael has his black hair almost always in a high fade, something common in some militaries.
Distinguishing Features: None
Personality: Mikael is a soft spoken individual that prefers to not say anything unless he has something to say. He has developed a harden shell over his emotions and seems to be distant due to his years of being ridiculed and bullied when he was younger. A large part of that stemmed from his openness of Yamataian culture and technology. When he does speak, he often comes off as a thug.
As of late, since he has graduated from basic, Mikael has been using the “bad attitude rookie” stereotype as a kind of pro-active defense. As his grandfather grilled into as a child “If you look like a puss, you will get nailed” and Mikael has been taking it to heart. He hopes secretly he can drop the act once he starts to fit in.
Likes: Yamataian culture, power armor, peace and quiet when working
Dislikes: Intolerance, people that act “ditzy”
Goals: To start a family and make sure his children never live a life he once had, to prove to others that not all Nepleslians are a bunch of unrefined thugs.
Father: Richard Harris (deceased)
Mother: Vima Harris (deceased)
Younger brother: Gunter Harris (living, 21)
Mikael and his family lived all like most others on the streets of Neplesia. He moved from one apartment complex to another as his parents tried to eke out an existence but never able to hold onto a job for more then a few years. When he was 18 he joined the work force as a laborer. A few months later, he and several other fellow workers were involved with an industrial accident which resulted in losing his right forearm. His parents used all of their savings to give him a cybernetic replacement that looked liked his lost natural one. He stayed on as a laborer to help pay off the debt to his parents.
He always wanted to join the Star Army of Yamatai, but with the species restriction act in place he was unable. And the Nepleslian military wanted no part of him due to his pro-Yamatai stance..not that Mikael truly ever wanted to anyways. The oath he made with himself to protect his family still prevented him to join when the restriction was finally removed. But when his parents died in a violent riot they got caught up in and his younger brother renouncing him as a brother (and joined the Nepleslian miltary), Mikael finally joined the Star Army of Yamatai as an Infantryman.
Mikael was involved in the YSS Eucharis' mission on Vertias, where he participated in the mission to safeguard Yamataian VIPs and destroy sensitive technology. And Mikael was all to happy to do so, in order to prevent it from falling in the hands of the Mishhuvurthyar. After escaping the shipyard with the rest of the crew, performing his duties fighting fires in the wardroom, saving the VIPs. Mikael was very disappointed he did not encounter the Mishhuvurthyar commandos when he learned of them later on.
The mission to Sbuhfaba proved to be Mikael's temporary demise. Aboard the Shuttle NG-X1-408-7 “Telemachus III”, he did not survive the large volume of firepower the shuttle had sustained. His soul transfer occured on the YSS Vesper, where he acquired his new Yamataian body.
In, YE 33: YSS Eucharis Mission 11 put him into ground combat in the Mitsuya system where he drove a tank. After his mission to the Mitsuya system, Mikael was again transferred to the YSS Vesper. His stay with the ship was short however as he volunteered to attend Operative Selection.
For the next four weeks, Mikael endured stresses he had not to endure since his life in the urban wilds of Neplesia as well as new stresses to challenge him. Using his past experiences to re-conquer the familar, he used that momentum to to help drive through the rest of SELECT.
Being designated as a candidate, he was almost immediately placed into INDOC as slots in a training class opened up. Mikael initally struggled with the interpersonal skills portion of training. He even once tried to half-heartedly try to drop out of the training fairly early. But the cadre he was speaking to saw the potential within him and persuaded Mikael to continue on with the training.
Soon after graduating from INDOC, Mikael recieved orders assigning him to a newly commissioned vessel, the YSS Truth's Vengeance under Sho-i Suzuki Akira. As the intelligence specialist of the infantry team assigned to the ship, he is quite eager to return to action.
