Matsuvo is is a lanky 5'6“ (170 cm) male with pale/tan skin, hazel eyes and inexplicably white hair. He has a skinny build but, as one would expect of a minkan, is strong. He is athletic and has defined muscles, however they are not overstated. His face is angular and has an unplaceable sense of exoticness. He has Elf-esqe ears.
Outwardly, Matsuvo or Mat as he prefers to be called, is outgoing socially and happy to meet new people. He enjoys sports but dislikes competition. However, despite his outgoing personality, Mat is basically inept at socializing, as he had few friends growing up. His outgoing personality is a result of that lack of friendship.
After being assigned to Elysia with his girlfriend, Mat picked up a knack for gardening. He enjoys planting and caring for plants and flowers.
Likes: Sports, meeting new people, food, gardening.
Dislikes: Competition, arguments
Fears: Messing up in a social setting
Matsuvo Shinomori was born in YE 19.
Matsuvo's parents met in the star army in YE 19. They fell in love almost immediately. Mat was conceived, and his parents left the military for a civilian life in Kyoto. Growing up, Mat's home and family life was idyllic, and his parents told him tales of the adventures that they had had in the star army, how they had met, and encouraged him to meet new people. While he did this, he made few friends, and those were lost over time. However, he never gave up his outgoing stance on life.
After his primary education, Mat was rudderless, and stayed in his parents home until age 20, at which point, filled with his parents tales, Mat set out to join the star army as an infantryman, hoping to make lasting friendships, or, as his parents had happen to them, something more.
Over the course of his career aboard the YSS Kaiyō and its successor the YSS Kaiyō II, Matsuvo was never decorated or mentioned in reports as much as his peers or his lover, Meissa Nashira, however his service was filled with outstanding displays of bravery, ingenuity and combat prowess in the field. Some examples of these include first; an instance in which Shinomori made use of his power armor's capabilities further than other soldiers in the field, by using its gravitational manipulators to allow himself to run on a wall to fight an opponent in CQC (Close Quarters Combat) from a new angle. An example of his admittedly rare, but nonetheless inspired ingenuity was when he bypassed the power input limiters on a Ke-M2-W2909 Accelerated Plasma Rifle and used it as a gigantic sword, sweeping it through an enemy formation. His combat prowess was, while not quite to the level of his peer, still noteworthy. In many instances Matsuvo took on multiple enemy powered armors in combat with no backup, the most impressive instance of which was on a space station when he fought ten enemy power armored soldiers by himself.
Matsuvo, over the course of his service, received relatively little official recognition for his service in comparison to his peers.
After some time of service, Matsuvo was stationed on Elysia with Meissa Nashira. During his time on Elysia, Matsuvo mainly spent time with Meissa, and picked up some new hobbies, such as cultivating flowers and other plants. Soon though, this peaceful life was interrupted when he was called to serve on the YSS Eucharis.
His time on the Eucharis was interesting, and the highlight of this service was when he ended up taking temporary command of the Eucharis' Power Armor team, and leading the assault on the flagship of the invasion fleet. The capture of that ship led to the routing of the invasion fleet, and the invasion of the Ketsurui Military Sector halting.
