Physical Characteristics

Build and Skin Colour: While slim, his body hints at muscles. He is relatively dark skinned for a Yamataian. Facial Features and Eye Colour: Looks to be of Japanese descent. While slender, he has high cheekbones and somewhat smaller eyes than average. His nose is narrow, with the tip turning up slightly. His eyes are a light brown. Hair Colour and Style: Short, curly and silver colored. Best described as “all over the place”. Does his best to keep it as neat as possible, although it appears he is losing that battle.

Distinguishing Features: On the bridge of his nose is a small black 'scar' that runs vertically. It's actual a Genetic tattoo, but Hara wanted one so he could look 'bad ass'.

Psychological Characteristics

Personality:Hara is almost always friendly and polite. Although he can be angered easily, especially when he is ignored, it is difficult to notice. This stems mostly from the fact that Hara strongly dislikes getting into altercations with other people. His demeanor is simply a reflection of this. Although he has come close to snapping from hiding his emotions in the past, he can usually catch himself at the last moment. He gets excited easily with things he has never encountered or experienced before, and has a tendency to ramble about things that cause him to get into such a state. He is very concerned about what others think about him, and becomes very nervous in large groups, especially if he knows no one. His behavior around such groups can best be described as paranoid, as he usually thinks the people around him are talking about him or looking down on him. Thanks to his older brother Shun, Hara is a bit girl crazy, although he isn't the quite the ladies man as his brother, nor does he actively go after them as much. He is strongly dedicated to his work in the military, fulfilling all of his assignments with enjoyment. In combat, he generally tries not to get in too far over his head or rush in carelessly, opting to follow orders to the letter as much as possible, although he certainly has a few reckless moments every now and then.

Likes:power armor, Giant robots, fighter ships, Giant robots that transform into fighter ships, the ladies Dislikes: large groups of people, show-offs, Mishhuvurthyar, being ignored

Goals:To be remembered for his service in the Star army

History

After living an extremely uneventful life within the domain of the Yamatai Star Empire, Hara enlisted into the Combat Arms of the Star army of Yamatai, in the hopes of experiencing the danger and excitement of Power Armor Piloting. Although most of his family protested his decision, primarily for the fact that Hara would have to transfer into a new body(Ironically, the Species Restriction act was repealed shortly after he enlisted), yet he remained convinced that this would be the best thing he could do with his life. In part to his family's protesting, he made sure his new body would look very much like his former Geshrin one - although he took a few liberties with his hair and eye color. After the process, Hara immediately enlisted into the Star Army, and departed on his way to camp. The training was rigorous and exhausting, but it was something Hara would always believe to be of use to him. As of now, he is assigned to the YSS Asuka.

Arrival on the YSS Asuka

Fresh from training, Hara's arrival on the YSS Asuka was an incredibly exciting moment. After having his room assigned to him and meeting the man he would be serving under, Kobayashi Ichiro. After his Captain, Kage Yaichiro briefed him and his crew about their upcoming mission, Hara departed to the Armor Bay to prepare.

Mission 1: Exploring the Battleship

Arriving shortly after Ichiro, Hara proceeded along with his fellow crewmates into the Mishhu ship. Upon arriving, they were sealed within, and attacked. The Mishhu fell easily to their combined effort's, gaining Hara his first few kill's in service. The group split into two - One led by Kigetsuki Kishou, which would rescue any survivors aboard the ship, while the other was commanded by Caine Motoyoshi. After constant fighting, the group finally arrived at the Engineering area of the ship, where a dying Mishhu initiated a self-destruct sequence. The trio quickly rushed to the bridge, with Kishou arriving in time to resupply them and aide in their final assault, cutting through the door that was their final obstacle to the bridge. They were faced with the Captain of the ship, with a female in his tentacles. The Captain claimed to let the woman live if they left, but Caine would have not of that. Blowing apart one of the Mishhu's eye's, the creature dropped the woman and attacked. He was quickly killed by Hara and Caine, just as Yaichiro deactivated the ship's self destruct. With their mission nearly complete, the other's departed back to the YSS Asuka while Hara remained on board until the Kahori Carrier Group could claim the ship.

Arrival on the YSS Senbu

Following the UOC's secession, among other things, Hara was brung into the separatists forces for some time before he eventually was able to return to Yamatai. Following his return, he was assigned to the Senbu. After a visit to the recreational decks, he was called in for an interview by his new CO, Shizuka Endo, and assigned to the Pride Wing.

YSS Senbu Mission 3: Suprise Attack!

Following a brief meeting with his new wingmates, the Pride Wing was ordered to sortie against pirates. Hara's role in this engagement was relatively insignificant; a faulty teleport left him unarmed and helpless when he finally launched from the Senbu. Despite this, he received a promotion to Nitô Hei.

YSS Senbu Mission 4: The Fallen Goddesses

It wasn't long until the Senbu encountered the pirates from their last mission once again. He, along with Shin Nekki were to accompany the Shosa and board one of the enemy Chiharu. Once on board, they encountered a red AIR2. While it slew one of their allies, Shin destroyed the enemy, after which Hara and the remaining Daisy pilot in Pride Wing Squad 03 destroyed the ACS and escaped while Shizuka blew the ship to pieces.
