Mikael Harris in Roleplay

Mikael Harris is a player character played by Demibear and is currently assigned to YSS Kaiyō II.

Physical Characteristics

Height: 186 cm Mass: 96 kg

Build and Skin Color: Mikael is a tall and muscular person thanks to the fact that his grandfather was an ID-SOL. His skin is of a caramel complexion.

Facial Features and Eye Color: Mikael has brown eyes which are more narrow then most others. Mikael has very strong facial features, with prominent cheek bones, and a pronounced forehead.

Hair Color and Style: Mikael has his black hair almost always in a high fade, something common in most armed forces.

Distinguishing Features: None

Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Mikael is a soft spoken individual that prefers to not say anything unless he has something to say. He has developed a harden shell over his emotions and gives the appearance of being distant due to the timed of being ridiculed and bullied when he was younger. A large part of the bullying stemmed from his openness to Yamataian culture and technology.

When he graduated from basic, Mikael had adopted the “bad attitude rookie” stereotype as a kind of pro-active defense. This was in large part due to his grandfather grilling into as a child that “If you look like a puss, you will get nailed”. INDOC training only helped reinforce the idea his grandfather planted into him. Though he is grown wise enough with experience to know when to drop it or soften his exterior when the situation demands it of him. Though he still much prefers other crew members to keep their distance from him. He doesn't tend to stay around long enough to know anyone anyways.

Likes: Yamataian culture, power armor, peace and quiet when working, encryption, explosions. Dislikes: Intolerance of other views not completely incorrect, “ditzy” people, acting “politically” correct for no reason. Goals: To start a family and make sure his children never live a life he once had and to prove to Yamataians that not all Nepleslians are a bunch of unrefined thugs.

History

Pre-RP

Born in YE 8, Mikael and his family lived all like most others on the streets of Nepleslia. He moved from one apartment complex to another as his parents tried to eke out an existence but never able to hold onto a job for more than a few years. When he turned 18, unaware of the Battle of Nepleslia at the time, he joined the workforce as a laborer as was expected of his low station in life. Though the year was not uneventful for him as a month after the battle, he and several fellow workers were involved in an industrial accident which resulted in the loss of his right forearm.

Using all of their savings, his parents had a natural-looking cybernetic replacement created for him. Indebted and encouraged by their love in him, he stayed in the job despite how much he hated it. And it is not like he had much choice in the matter. He had made an oath to himself to be the protector of his family, much like his ID-SOL grandfather once was decades ago.

3 years later and Mikael was still a laborer working to meek out an existence while also paying off his parents and protecting them. Despite being Nepleslian at the core, Mikael was not afraid to openly be positive towards the Yamatai Star Empire. While he did not appreciate the speciesism of the times, there were many aspects of their culture that he admired. For every heavy metal song, he was blasting while handling a firearm, he ate Yamatai cheap foods. This did not exactly win him many friends and support from others.

His link to Nepleslia was severed in YE 30 when his parents were caught up in a violent riot and lost their lives. Raging at the failure of Mikael being unable to protect their parents (working his job at the time), Gunther renounced him as his brother and joined up with the fledgling Nepleslian Space Marine Corps. With the Species Restriction Act being rescinded before the tragic event, Mikael quit his job and sold what he could to travel to Yamatai and enlist into the Star Army of Yamatai late YE 30.

RP

Mikael Harris Mikael was involved in the YSS Eucharis' mission on Vertias, where he participated in the mission to safeguard Yamataian VIPs and destroy sensitive technology. And Mikael was all too happy to do so, in order to prevent it from falling in the hands of the Mishhuvurthyar. After escaping the shipyard with the rest of the crew, performing his duties fighting fires in the wardroom, saving the VIPs. Mikael was very disappointed he did not encounter the Mishhuvurthyar commandos when he learned of them later on.

The mission to Sbuhfaba proved to be Mikael's temporary demise. Aboard the Shuttle NG-X1-408-7 “Telemachus III”, he was killed in action as the shuttle succumbed to the large volume of firepower being thrown at it. His soul transfer occurred on the YSS Vesper, where he acquired his new Yamataian body.

In, YE 33 Mikael was a part of YSS Eucharis' ground forces within Mitsuya system to determine the fate of the UOC colony. Afterward, Mikael was once again transferred to the YSS Vesper. His stay with the ship was short however as he volunteered to attend Operative Selection.

For the next four weeks, Mikael endured stresses he had not to endure since his life in the urban wilds of Neplesia as well as new stresses to challenge him. Using his past experiences to re-conquer the familiar, he used that momentum to help drive through the rest of SELECT.

Being designated as a candidate, he was almost immediately placed into INDOC as slots in a training class opened up. Mikael initially struggled with the interpersonal skills portion of the training. He even once half-hardheartedly tried to drop out of the training fairly early as he was unsure of his abilities or reasoning. But the Juni he was sent to speak to saw the potential within him and persuaded Mikael to continue on with the training. Of course, maybe they just needed warm bodies on the front line as SAINT operatives too.

Soon after graduating from INDOC, Mikael received orders assigning him to the YSS Aeon. As the intelligence specialist of the infantry team assigned to the ship, he was quite eager to return to action. Though his time on the YSS Aeon was short-lived, with him a month with him being transferred out by SAINT after rescuing survivors from an NMX prison.

While on assignment, his ship of assignment was listed as MIA. While a number of survivors were recovered later on during the war, Mikael was not. Thus at the end of the Second Mishhuvurthyar War was listed as KIA, a soldier with no family or anyone else to remember him.

Classified entry: Operative Harris was placed in fieldwork disguised as a civilian participating in the Star Army Privateer Program. Contact was lost around the Arzank system shortly after the program was disbanded.

And that would have likely remained the case if not for the annexation of the Arzank system in YE 38. In mid YE 39, a faint and repeating radio ping was detected in the outer system. Upon further investigation when a ship was finally sent later in the year, a heavily damaged type 30 escape pod was discovered with Mikael as the sole occupant in stasis. How it had gotten there, no one will know.

Coming back from the “dead”, Mikael was ready to continue his work with the Star Army of Yamatai with his new assignment to the YSS Kaiyo II. After a brief mission at the Temple of Stars, Mikael found himself bewildered at the fact in finding himself in a completely new universe in YE 40. While he heard of the possibility of alternate universes, he certainly did not expect to be located within one. But it came with the perk of a 2 rank promotion at the very least.

In late YE 41, the YSS Kaiyo II came under assault by the Kuvexians. Somehow completely bypassing the ship's defenses, a number of boarding shuttles breached the ship's hull. Whether it was fate or just luck, Mikael happened to be in the right place at the right time as a team of Kuvexians attempted to aether saw their way into the power armor bay he was in after hours.

Through use of suppressing fire and a well-placed grenade, he was able to keep the Kuvexians at bay long enough for fellow crew members to sneak around. They were able to enter the power armor bay due to his actions. But he met another untimely demise when he threw an unarmored William and took the shots meant for him.

Shortly after his reemergence from the hemo tanks, he began officer training under Chusa Taiyou with a promotion to Shoi Kohosei. He was a bit disappointed at the training rank due to his past experience, but he was a professional soldier. He was sure there was a reason for it.

He can make use of higher forms of math, such as equations used with cryptography, when used in an applied fashion. Star Army Common Skills/ SAINT Operative
Technology OperationMikael is capable of operating any computer system that uses the Kessaku OS, found on all Star Army starships due to basic training. INDOC further expanded his skills with him capable of writing programs, basic debugging, hacking, and limited electronic warfare in the form of mobile surveillance and counter surveillance.

His grandfather might shed of tear of joy in death. Star Army Basic Infantry Training/ SAINT Operative
PhysicalMikael is a very capable runner and is able to run for miles on end. Despite his large size, he is surprisingly agile in zero gravity thanks to his ability to control his center of gravity. A trait he picked up from moving boxes and crates. Though his Minkan body has made this largely redundant after his resurrection. Life experience/ Infantry

HumanitiesMikael learned a bit about psychology and reading the body language of others. He has also taken an interest in understanding different cultures first and foremost to help gain an edge on his operations.
