History

Pre-RP

Kai's Childhood was fairly boring and uneventful, living with his parents on Tami. Just about every moment of free time Kai had, was spent hanging out with friends. Common activites included trips into the wilderness, and the ever prevalent stainball. Once old enough, Kai and his friends joined a comptetitive stainball league, in which they enjoyed a mild amount of success, eventually going on to win local and planetary champironships in group and individual events. This gave Kai the notion that he could become someone great, go and do exciting things, even become famous.

Over the years, Kai held on to this notion, and trained himself and his friends in military tactics for stainball. Of course, only being kids, it was nothing like what real battle is. Then, in YE 28, the battle of Tami happened and Kai saw the Star Army of Yamatai in action for the first time. It was Now that he knew what he was going to do the rest of his life.

Kai begged his parents to allow him to join the star army, but they wouldn't have it. They wanted him to stay home and be safe, to get a job in the colony and live the simple life. So Kai ran away, taking a shuttle to Yamatai and transferring from his old geshrin body to a Yamataian one. Once he had achieved that, Kai signed up for The Star Army and was sent to Fort Ready to undergo training.

YSS Miharu

After arriving on Nataria, Kai began his training and was able to meet some new friends, Mizuno Yoroko and Tsukade Yuril. During his first Armour simulation, the trio became the overall winners of the sim. The next day was supposed to be a free day, and the three first went shopping, kai's friends buying their first sets of civillian clothes, Kai buying himself decent swimwear (brief-style swimisuit bottoms are unbecoming of a genteleman)once this had happened, they made their way to the beach of the nearby lake for a day of relaxing. Odd lights and noises alarmed the group, who were soon overcome by some recruits of Class 2, whom came bearing news of a Mishhu attack on Nataria. Just in case, class one was set to the task of giving class two a crash-course in armour piloting, starting another armour sim. After a while, Kai was set against a recruit whose Daisy was wielding a large Durandium sword, the resulting clash ending in a hole in Kai's Daisy and a gash in his arm, but he survived fine and was able to continue the sim. before long however, the “Damaged” armor was taken out and reset for Kai to return to the base. on his way back, he encountered several mishhu attacking an instructor and, utilising the live ammunition each recruit had been made to carry for just a situation, engaged the enemy. before long, reinforcements in the form of his group and class two cam to his and the neko's aid, and they were able to dispatch the mishhu, saving the instructor's life. Four comparatively uneventful weeks later, Kai graduated along with classes one and two, and was awarded the combat lifesaver award with his colleagues.

The next chapter of his life has now begun with his Assignment to the YSS Miharu, an experimental himiko-class escort. His first mission, Miharu's mission 2, was the exploration of the Bowhordia star system and some surrounding Nebulae. Being infantry, Kai mostly trained in simulators and read throughout the mission, as it turned out no Armor support was needed throughout the entire mission. The simulator training was, however, valuable time well spent, leaving Kai even more ready for combat than he had been. Along with this, he earned several awards for his duties.

With Mission 2 wrapping up, Miharu got ready for her third mission, and so did the newly Promoted Nitô Hei Nakamura.

In Miharu Mission three, Kai was ordered into the ground party, and fought a long battle with his crewmates against legions of Nekomachina, which they soon defeated. After this, the crew rescued prisoners from Bowhordia, and worked on destroying Eve's base on the planet. after a tough slog, fighting against better-equipped Nekomachina, Kai was briefly caught by a Mishhuvurthyar, but managed to escape at the cost of his armor's shield generator, and the use of his shoulder. After the groups confrontation with a false Eve, they attacked a very large, powerful, Mishhumachina, but, after a concentrated effort, and the severe damaging of several of the teams armors, including Kai's, He was able to cut the Mishhumachina to bits with an Aether saber rifle. Upon his return to the Miharu, he collapsed from his injuries before being submerged in a hemosynth tank for a few hours. Sometime after this, Kai was promoted to Nito Heisho.

He has since simply passed his time in the simulator bays, his own room, and in the Power Armor bays, working on his PA skills, and his technical knowledge of the Daisy Armor. During the time passed on the way to the Amaya's gate, Kai managed to customize his daisy with a non-hemosynthetic insert, that still gave the suit the same capabilities (Minus the healing) with slightly better resistance to kinetics.

After the Briefing for Amaya's gate, Kai had an ST backup, and then had his hair cut by Yuzuki. The two shared a moment alone, with the sprite spilling her fears and worries on the Yamataian. Kai did his best to Console her, Promising that he would be there for her, and that he would be able to help when she needed. The two parted ways, Yuzuki getting her ST backup after the event. In the Armor bay, Kai discovered that Asher Westwood had been cloned from a nearly 2 year old ST backup, and was once again on the ship.

When they finally Deployed, Kai helped quite a bit by temporarily leading a squad containing Asher and Kyou Gunshin, where they encountered a couple of NH-18, whom were quickly dispatched. after a brief spat with Meni (Or was it Mani?), Miharu's Black knights moved out to attempt to take control of Amaya's gate, defeating two NH-28 along the way. They moved ahead to a control room, but to no avail as the previous occupants had locked the stations. Forced to retreat, they fought their way through several Mishhumachina, which were eventually destroyed by Kotori-Taisa in a Ryusei. Charging on again, this time with help from the Taisa, the Black Knights were able to hear encrypted telepathic communication between some of the defenders, and avaoided an ambush, springing it and, with Kotori's reversal ability, stopping the Psionic enemies from doing much damage.

Soon thereafter, the Black Knights came into conflict with Meni, Mani, and Amaya in her Akuma prototype. Through a short, violent, and bloody battle, The Black knights were able to defeat the three (Mostly thanks to Kotori's ability to reverse Amaya's Psionics) but, before the conclusion, Kai was killed, after a reckless charge ended up with Mani's Black Mindy stabbing him in the face With a Zesuaium elbow spike. Thus Kai was killed for the first time, and when revived via ST, forgot everything that happened after his most recent backup.

YSS Hoshi/ YSS Mokuren

After the Battle of the Blue rift, the YSS Hoshi, the Miharu's sub-ship, was the only part that survived, with only part of the crew. Taken on aboard the rescued YSS Mokuren, the Hoshi became the command center for the resurrected Second Draconian fleet remnants. Kai spent several tumultuous days aboard the Mokuren and Hoshi, as they traveled back toward Yamatai. The Second Draconian fleet ended up meeting with the First Expeditionary fleet at Nataria, where the Draconian fleet helped turn what had been a diversion into a decisive victory.

After Nataria, The First expeditionary and Second Draconian fleets made haste toward yamatai, as their bait had been taken by the Mishhu, and Yui's gamble turned into a greater victory than had been expected, though still at great cost. During the battle, however, the emotionally and decisively challenged Kai Chose not to participate in the Hoshi's Strike mission against the XSS Tiamat, and the Armor pilot ended up instead staying aboard the Mokuren and providing background support for the crew of the ship, helping out wherever he was needed, but not actually fighting.

Despite this, as a member of the Miharu Crew, Kai was still lauded by the empire as a Hero.

After a period of rest and unassignment, Kai suddenly received orders to transfer to the Fifth fleet. These orders would be received with great joy when Kai learned that the Fifth Fleet's next target was his home world, Tami.
