Kawasaka in role-play

Kawasaka is a player character. She is played by Jake (Doshii Jun).

Kawasaka's name

Kawasaka means something pretty generic, but is so named in honor of a future motorcycle. “Jeudi” is Thursday in French, with “Mai” being “May.” I liked how Jeudi sounded, and wanted the feel of detective Friday without swiping the name. Hence, Jeudi. Mai is the other part of a title to a song by Ariane Moffatt, titled "Jeudi, 17 Mai". I came up with the idea for the character after talking to Fred when I met him in Montreal.

Physical Characteristics

Build and skin color: Kawasaka's structure is fit, lean and tough. She's a general athlete, as she doesn't practice any particular sport other than her baton fighting and the empty-hands stuff. Her feet are a little big, but she's light on them. Her skin color is a deep bronze from her time spent in Malifar.

Facial features and eye color: Kawasaka's face is a bit on the long side, giving her cheekbones more prominence. The color of her eyes, a couple shades darker than cobalt, further highlighting the scleras.

Hair color, style: A dull steel blue (#004477), put into a short, girlish cut that's most practical for hot climates such as Malifar while still looking feminine.

Distinguishing Features

Kawasaka's sun-kissed skin tends to stands out among other Neko. She's also ambidextrous.

Armament

Kawasaka keeps her weapons uncomplicated. From her policing days, she keeps her Malifar Police Department-issued Type 28D NSP on a Star Army blue lanyard attached to her pistol belt, with the gun holstered on her hip on the right side. A collapsing baton, 55 cm long, is on a rotating sheath on her left forward hip. She also carries a department-issued Type 30 flashlight.

Her duty uniform is the Type 31 Working Uniform in red, which she finds most comfortable. In casual wear, Kawasaka has a habit of wearing body armor, and conceals a baton on her.

Personality

Kawasaka believes in the power of government and law. She also believes those powers can be abused, but she's not a person to try and change things outside of her control. Kawasaka strives for efficiency, but her time with the Malifar Police Department let her in on a little secret — sometimes, to be efficient in meting out justice, one must be inefficient.

Kawasaka's a straight-shooter and fearless. This can lead to social awkwardness, but not on her part; she has a distinct lack of empathy when it comes to what other people feel about her. When it comes to talking about her own feelings about anything, Kawasaka tends to deflect and ask about something else.

History

Kawasaka started off in the Star Army as a technical sentry on a [i]Sakura[/i]-class. She lasted about a year before she asked for “retirement” for a year. She was granted this only because of how poorly her commanding officer thought of her.

She was just fine with that. The military was all about winning, winning, winning; kill them, move here, capture this, blehhh. There was no true structure to it all; no actual goals that satisfied her. That's when, after visiting Malifar a couple weeks after “retiring,” she saw a recruiting poster for the Malifar Police Department.

Learning about the law was a life-changing moment. Malifar PD hired her after she agreed to move to Malifar. She quickly became a very efficient patrol officer, and had the chance to participate in vice before the Star Army requested her presence.

With a little work on behalf of the MPD, Kawasaka got a reprieve from her military service for a year. She was allowed to train to be a military policewoman while getting a wider tour of duty of the various departments of Malifar. When she returned to military service in YE 31, she was made an MP and eventually put up for assignment to a ship.

Skills

  • Communication: Kawasaka is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other characters through headsets, starships, power armor, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. She is fluent in Nepleslian and Yamataian. She can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc. She also can speak telepathically.
  • Fighting: Kawasaka received hand-to-hand combat training, followed up with a rigorous training program. She is skilled and experienced in combat in Yamatai-like conditions and in zero-gravity, with and without weapons. Weapons she has trained with include energy pistols, knives and power armor.
    • Melee combat: Kawasaka is not an exceptional martial artist, as she frequently disregards proper technique for what she perceives as a more efficient solution. However, she is exceptional when it comes to using blunt melee weapons, especially her baton.
  • Technology Operation: Kawasaka is capable of operating any computer system that uses the Kessaku OS, which is found on all Star Army starships. She is proficient in entering and/or searching for information.
  • Mathematics: Kawasaka received basic mathematics training, to including up to algebra and trigonometry.
  • Vehicles: Kawasaka, thanks to her training with the MPD, is capable of using various land transports, wheeled and anti-grav alike, with great proficiency.
  • Humanities (psychology): Kawasaka is not formally trained in psychology, but she has some perception into the human heart and soul thanks to her time with the MPD and dealing with people daily.
