Bjorn stands tall at 6’5(2m) and weighs a hefty 220lbs(100kg). Though he is in no way obese, infact quite the opposite, with most of his weight coming from the muscles that he himself claims to be ‘quite proud of’.
Coming from a family of farmers, Bjorn keeps to a more tanned color of his otherwise white skin as he exclaims ‘better to tan than to burn’ when asked. As for blemishes, he does have some light patches of freckles of varying amounts.
Bjorn’s hair is matt black and Bjorn tends to keep it short and clean, along with the ever present shadow of his facial hair along his jaw when possible.
Finally Bjorn’s eyes are a Sharp Emerald color.
Bjorn is a very bold and brash person, first one in and last one out, no-one gets left behind, etc. but he isn't a fool, not in the least, if something is impossible, or would put more people in danger, he will swallow his pride. Speaking of which, Pride is something he struggles to keep to himself, though finding where bravado begins and his confidence ends is anyone’s guess.
If one finds themself in Bjorn’s inner circle, then they should be prepared for a friend that would walk through fire and brimstone at a moments notice if thats what was asked of him, for Bjorn trust is more important than life itself and will go to incredible lengths to prove he deserves it, but one should be wary if they don't return the favor, for bonds broken are near impossible to repair and come with hell to pay.
Bjorn is… a very flirtatious person, not at all timid about admitting attraction to someone. Of course he knows time and place, so he won't attempt something if he thinks it's gonna get him into trouble. But he won't prod around the bush about it.
Born on Yamatai in YE 20 and later raised on Anisa when his family left Yamatai to help colonize Anisa in YE 23, Bjorn lived a near idealistic life with his two parents. His father Vermund Okimoto and mother Frida Okimoto, both of which were model citizens and worked happily within the department of agriculture doing what they could to gain headway in life. His Parents wished for nothing more but for Bjorn to follow in their footsteps. But Bjorn couldn't help but want something more from life.
Though Bjorn was not ungrateful for the seemingly normal life he was born into, he did find ways to make life for him on Anisa a bit more ‘exciting’.
When Bjorn became of a semi-decent age (10 years old or so) he and his friends started making up light hearted ‘competitions’ to test one against the other, starting with menial games like ‘rock, paper, scissors’, ‘thumb war’, and ‘arm wrestling’. Before moving to more boastful victories whenever they were finished messing around or needed to let off steam. Such as leg races, wrestling, and whatever sport they felt like playing at the time would be just as fair game. Once they became older however, the competitions turned away from simply being light hearted fun, to being a direct challenge to one or another’s pride (in simplest terms ‘I think I’m better than you, and I'm willing to prove it’) Usually because they are wanting to impress a girl, settle a dispute, or even sometimes in hopes of making a bet to get some extra spending money. And the older they were, the more serious the ‘competition’ became. Such as Fight Clubs, Shooting Sports,Off-Road Racing, and the occasional drag race wasn't out of the question either. As one could imagine, these took place just as much at official locations as they did at unofficial.
Not all of Bjorn’s time with his friends were spent trying to one up the other of course. As it was customary in their group for the victor(s) to prove there was no ill-will by treating the loser(s) to a ‘good time’, usually by taking the group to a bar and grill or some other and on top of becoming the groups designated driver, the ‘winner’ paid for whatever the losing group ordered. From alcohol, food, and the occasional ‘medicinal herb’ (within reason of course). Bjorn of course has had to pay for more than a couple nights out with his friends, not that he minded, because when he would lose, they would do the same for him without complaint.
While Bjorn’s trouble rousing behaviour did normally end with his friends, he was prone to getting into his own trouble from time to time, admittedly from his own weakness to the opposite sex. Usually ending with him fleeing a lovers house through a field in the middle of the night in nothing more than his boxers as a father (or mother) angrily waved their gun in the air and cursed Bjorn’s name.
Though, there was one activity Bjorn took a significant liking to, an event he and his friends held for special occasions. Such as Birthdays, Weddings, Holidays and (when they did occur) Funerals. That activity in question… was blowing something the fuck up.From an old truck they found at the scrap yard, mountain of rusted and empty barrels, or a piece of fruniture that reminded someone of a bad relationship or of a lost loved one, whatever they thought would give off a good ‘boom’. Originally it was supposed to be a one time thing, but Bjorn liked it so much, he managed to convince his friends to make it a least somewhat regular thing. This like for all things explosive would become at least one of his reasons for wanting to be a demolitions expert.
If there was one thing that was consistent of Bjorn throughout his life, it would be his unshakeable patriotism and love of the empire of Yamatai. Eventually leading him to enlist, but he only did so after being absolutely sure that his parents did not intend to stop trying to force their plans for his life onto him. Because of this he keeps bare minimum contact with his family, and talking about it isn't exactly something he ‘wants’ to do, at least not with someone he knows only in the formal sense.
Demolitions: Through his own study and interest in explosions and explosive Devices, Bjorn is quite familiar with how to identify, create, Use, and dispose with a fair amount of explosive devices.
Physical: Through his own love of pushing himself forward and keeping himself more than just 'in shape', Bjorn is capable of lifting more than his fair share of weight, as well as being able to keep himself from becoming exhausted for longer than would be expected. Plus having a history with Brawling doesn't exactly leave one without a good idea of how the flow of a fight starts and ends, but taking varying levels of martial arts doesn't hurt that learning process in the least.
Vehicles: Off-road racing and the occasional Drag race can teach one more than a few ways of how a vehicle is supposed to move and how it isn't. And Bjorn just so happens to know what both of those situations feel like, in both the best and worst ways.
