Weight: 130 Lbs
Build and Skin Color: Akjit has a moderate to slim build, with a light skin tone. He will not tan well, and to his embarrassment, will also burn a little. Since joining the Astral Vanguard though, his build has received some tone to it, helping to bolster his confidence just a tad. Despite this, it still errs a little on the wiry side, much like how a frail and bullied kid would look after making some progress in physical fitness.
Facial Features and Eye Color: Overall, Akjit's face almost, almost, has a feminine angularity to it; obviously, he takes after his mother. However, his more defining features, as with most people, are the eyes. They appear worn and tired with a timid shyness to them. That, or an uncertainty hangs about them, giving them a slight furtive appearance.
Hair Color and Style: His hair is brown, cut to around two inches long. It is often uncombed, left to hang limply or be a little messy, depending on the circumstances. Because of the the care he gives it, or lack of it, the 'style' may change somewhat on a daily basis.
Distinguishing Features: Parts of his left hand, forearm, left side of his face and chest have burn scars. The overall shape of the marks themselves resemble splashes of water. Patches of perfectly healthy, untouched skin can be seen in the midst of the tendrils and splashes due to this patterning. Akjit is left handed.
Personality: Akjit Chirimar has a strong sense of morality, and will stand up for what he believes in. Or to be more precise, wishes he would more often. Despite looking more like a military man, he has a slightly jittery and uneasy demeanor about him, as though everything and everyone were out to get him. Akjit also scares easily due to this, but is no longer as easily mailable to outside influences. Though he is kind and timid, Akjit will often go out of his way to try and help anyone he perceives as a friend. It also seems that he has a tendency to be drawn to whatever causes him pain or stress; though terribly frighted of fire, he will not flee for an example. He will not leave an unpleasant conversation, nor will he take any easy option. Akjit still does not fully comprehend why this is the case with himself.
Likes: One on One Talks, Small Group Talks, Soothing Music, Drawing, Watching People 'Tinker' With Things.

Goals: Become a 'better person' by 'the hard way' and See the Galaxy, Reunite the Iromakuanhe
Navwar Chirimar (Father)
Farah Mitinder (Mother)
Akjit Chirimar was born to Navwar Chirimar and Farah Mitinder as a frail and weak baby. Both his parents were shipwrights, and focused deeply in their work. Their primary concerns were as follows: 1) Build Ships and 2) Their Son. This, of course, did not mean that the two did not love Akjit, on the contrary. It was just that they did not know how to show it. During Akjit's earliest years, he was babysat by various people, family members and so on. As he got older and was able to walk, he was allowed to wander about ships that were under the supervision of his parents. As a result of walking through construction zones, he has had a fair share of scrapes and bruises, learning early how to treat it all. As a little time passed, he eventually took to doodling whatever he saw within the newly built ships. At one point, he was even considered a possible security threat, as his pictures had become surprisingly detailed; eventually, the bosses decided they were detailed just enough to taunt and vex competing companies, but not give away secrets. By the time he was six, Akjit was sitting beside an engineer attempting to seal a leaking fuel pipe. The engineer scrambled to patch the leak, which then proceeded to leak from another orifice. This was all fun and games until the pipe spurted fuel over both the engineer and Akjit, then promptly igniting. The engineer died within moments while Akjit patted out the flames and proceeded to treat himself. He was considered “Not overly traumatized” by medical personnel.
Not too much later, he was sent to private school. Those years were quiet and boring. It seemed that he did not seek to speak to anyone, and instead doodle pictures in the between times. As he became a teenager, he was transferred into public school in order to better 'mingle'. Needless to say, it worked, though to a limited degree. At the very least, he was talking to people again after the incident. As soon as he became of age, Akjit opted to join the military. His demeanor had made him the easiest target for his superiors to yell at and order around, though his performance was well within acceptable boundaries. During a test flight within a Vandr, another unit somehow malfunctioned and was eventually eviscerated. Though the pilot was safe, the mystery of how it happened still remained. Due to several graphic drawings Akjit made, the problem was solved, elevating his status in the process. He has since graduated and was assigned to Bahram Wing.
Akjit was soon transferred by shuttle to Bahram Wing with several of his fellow graduates and hard won friends. However, the NVR attack destroyed the shuttle, and in the end of the day, he was the only survivor, not mentioning any others of the nearby base. Despite this, he was soon thrown back into the fray, but as a pilot with a VANDR of his own. It poked and prodded, taunted him at times, and as a result, he eventually settled on calling his VANDR's NI Core “Nightmare” for her less than pleasant demeanor. Over the course of several missions, Akjit fought against multiple drones and enemy Frame Runners, cutting them down as the reality of warfare was pushed down on him harder and harder.
He learned that NIs were people too, with their own motives, ambitions and dreams. He learned that the NVR that he fought against was no different from himself, doing the very same thing. And he came to understand that life was nothing like the movies at all, and embraced it. For years, he fought for the Astral Commonwealth despite knowing it wasn't perfect, watching the times change, and as his newfound friends drifted apart.
With years of experience under his belt, Akjit was chosen, by name, to join Setareh Wing.
Akjit has a strong comprehension and good set of skills concerning the usage of an Organoid Frame. He is well capable of using all Organoid Weapons Systems, with a proficiency that had been refined and honed through trial by fire. Interestingly enough, Akjit is particularly interested in close range combat with the Frames despite the fact that he is more comfortable with ranged combat. Since becoming an active combatant and operating frames over the years, his skills have become formidable, allowing him to pursue cutting edge maneuvers and terrifying shock tactics.
After one too many close encounters, with one nearly killing him in the process, Akjit decided enough was enough, and threw himself into hard, rigorous training. In hand to hand combat, he is best with a defensive approach that is cautious and methodical, as counter-intuitive as it may seem. As a result of this however, he is always searching to set the stage to his liking, tilting the balance in his favor. Though the firearm class that he is most comfortable with is any sniper rifle, he is also very skilled with battle and assault rifles, pressing them into service for more precise shooting. So far, Akjit is best found laying prone and picking off a target over 800 meters away after waiting for some measure of time or setting up medium ranged killzones or ambushes. When out of his element, such as being forced into a fast and furious fistfight or close quarters combat with a submachine gun, he seeks to flee, setting up quick, improvised ambushes as a result.
He is trained in the basics of the Astral Vanguard communications systems, which include radio, laser and MASC-enhanced versions of these. He does understand the basics to how radio and laser communications work, but is more drawn to the MASC systems, as they also play a vital role in certain weapons mounted on the Organoid Frames. Despite this interest though, he hasn't devoted enough time to learning more about them.
Chirimar is capable of basic medical techniques, including everything up to first aid, emergency care such as CPR or the Heimlich maneuver and the administering of pre-prepared medicine, such as painkillers or stimulants. As a child, he was prone to accidents, and had to be able to treat his own wounds quickly, just in case there were no first responders to help him in his troubles. Since he was eight, he has been able to administer tourniquets and painkillers for himself. Due to a recent shooting and the following stay in the medical bay, Akjit has learned how to operate some of the more 'interesting' features and devices, in theory.
Akjit has learned the basics of Organoid maintenance and repair techniques while also becoming familiar with more advanced ones. He often tinkers with his own Organoid on spare time in an attempt to learn more about how it works. In particular, he enjoys adjusting and optimizing the more minor systems and maintaining the weapons in particular. The Biomass Harvest Systems on the Organoids he has tended to never ceases to entertain him, and he occasionally tries to sneak in a life form larger than what the normal settings allow, just so he may change them and watch the unfortunate animal be processed, though out of fascination and not cruelty.
He has had extensive courses in the use of NI systems aboard the Organoid craft employed by the Astral Vanguard, and understands how to properly utilize his own entry ports to interface with compatible systems. The use of standard-issue electronic devices and conventional computers have also been a part of his education.
Akjit is a reasonably good artist, and often keeps a small notepad and writing utensil on hand. With them, he will draw or doodle anything that catches his fancy. As a side note, he can make a pretty accurate picture of something by listening to a description. When time permits and he sees something interesting, he may simply stop whatever he is doing to stand and draw; this is not entirely healthy, as this may happen while in a hazard zone. Such as a construction site. While in Bahram, Akjit has not had a shortage of interesting, quirky people and amazing things to sketch or draw. Though his grayscale is improving, Akjit still hasn't tried much in the ways of coloring yet.
