Personality: Riku generally maintains a 'neutral' pattern whilst working, his facial expressions flat and near emotionless as his mind fixates on the tasks at hand. Despite it all, he'll quickly break a smile, depending on the length of conversation and the relationship he has with the person, when greeted or spoken to.

He has little goals in life, other then to serve his home, protect his family, and represent the Star Empire wherever it may go to plant its flag. His dedication to the cause indicative of the path he has chosen to follow down. Outside of work and public areas, he withdraws into a shell and rarely ventures out unless forced, either through pouted lips or insistent colleagues.


Kawazoe, Riku was born in YE 18.

Riku's past history are mainly bookmarks of significant events that affected his life and those around him, having been born in a time when the first trans-humanists had still only just went down the path of genetic manipulation and customized bodies. He and his family were a part of the first wave, an NH-1 Geshrin Enhanced Human whose appearance differed little with his current iteration. The following years would forever mark his life as the newly christened Star Army of Yamatai marched forward towards its future into a strong, independent arm of the Star Empire.

Yet, with each passing year it seemed the Star Empire invited nothing but death and devastation to knock on its door as their capital of Planet Yamatai came under attack and siege a mere five years afterwards. The fall of Geshrinopolis meant the deaths of his entire family as they went to eye the future of trans-humanism; the still in concept and far off NH-22C Yamataian bodies. Something that was meant to bridge the gap and mark harmony became a discord of destruction and devastation.

To have survived that unscathed was a miracle, if not downright luck. And though he lost one family, he soon found another, trapped under the rubble and fire of a once proud city. He changed his name for theirs, leaving only the scars of his trials and the memento of a once happy life behind. So as the years continued to go by again, once more did change come, and once more did the Star Empire go out to fight in its wars of peace, justice, and diplomacy. Yet this time he would be joining them, a proud son of a tarnished name and the stalwart defender of those that carried his new one.
