Personality: Takeshi is like two sides of a coin, during his free time he is quite friendly and talkative, with a good sense of humor but during practice and missions he has a grim determination and doesn't like when someone are goofing around. He can be quite hard on people that he feels doesn't take missions or practice seriously, which brings us to the point that he isn’t afraid to say what he thinks even though it might put him in trouble.

Born on Yamatai, Takeshi was the only child of two retired Army soldiers. He went to public schools in his early years but as soon as he had come to age he did enlist much to his parents dislike.
Already during his first years in school he was taller than many of the other students and they did make fun of him from time to time because of it. But he was never clumsy as many of the other taller boys were. Instead he had a grace and agility scaled for his length. But he felt a bit left out during school because he didn't have many friends. Even though he tried to be nice and friendly to everyone that he thought deserved it. Might have been because he did take very seriously about earning someone’s respect and to really be his friend you have to earn his respect. He did have two close friends that he later enlisted with but during their training they grew apart and went their separate ways, still as friends but he hasn't heard from them for more than 3 years.
His training for being a part of the Yamataian Star Army was a period of both happiness and pain. He was always pushing him-self to the limit and trying to prove his worth. After his two friends were assigned to different training squads he didn't really get any close friends again. The officers at the training camp was always screaming and shouting at the recruits but Takeshi tried to ignore this and do as he was told. He did respect his officers even though he didn't always agree with them and that brought about some discussions and reprimands.
At the age of 23 Takeshi became part of a small taskforce. They completed a few missions together before Takeshi was recruited by a different officer. He was to become a reconnaissance team of one, after a year of stealth and marksman training he was sent out on one man missions behind enemy lines that could go on for days, even weeks. For the last 3 years Takeshi has been doing solo missions both in space and planetary once. Most of the times they have just consisted of observing and reporting enemy movements or positions. Sometimes he have been ordered to take out high ranking officers and then leave. One shot and he have been gone like smoke. After all these missions is still a Santô Hei just older and a bit more experienced but still the same guy as before. Takeshi have become known as a loner as he have never told anyone what mission he is about to embark on, just resupplying and moving out again. Of course this has started rumors about him being on the bad side of some high ranking officer and that the missions have been tries to get him killed, it has also earned him the nickname Kage as he have kept to himself or in the background while at base or on a ship. All of his time alone have honed his marksmans skills to almost perfection but he can still work in a group although he prefers a support role with a sniper rifle.
Takeshi received hand-to-hand combat training, followed up with a rigorous training program. He is skilled and experienced in combat both in Yamatai-like conditions and in zero-gravity, with and without weapons. He has become a decent hand to hand fighter much like a user of Thai Boxing. Weapons he is trained in include energy pistols, rifles, knives, and power armor. Takeshi is skilled in precision shooting, using projectile weapons such as with a rifle but most commonly with a sniper rifle.
During his military training Takeshi managed to develop his agility to the level of a professional acrobat, being built more or less like one his physic did help him. Not a too good sprinter he did focus on his stamina and endurance instead. Now he is a good marathon runner and not really a short distance sprinter. These skills he can use while in a Power armor.
Takeshi did early in his training show signs of understanding how to survive in hostile environments, constructing shelters and camouflaging them as well as himself. He knows what signs to look for when searching for water and hunting. These are skills he thinks are useful if caught behind enemy lines or during reconnaissance missions.
At the training camp Takeshi decided to learn how to handle and dispose of explosives. He did receive training in how to create IED's and how to identify them.
Takeshi is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other personal through headsets, starships, power armor, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. Takeshi is fluent in Nepleslian and Yamataian. He can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc.
Takeshi is capable of operating any computer system that uses the Kessaku OS, found on all Star Army starships. He is proficient in entering and/or searching for information.
Takeshi did receive basic mathematics training, to including up to algebra and trigonometry.
