Personality: Masakaji is a Nepleslian at heart despite years of being around Jiyuuians. He loves women, guns, and rum. But the years of being with the Jiyuuians have allowed him to learn the proper art of diplomacy and is much more likely to try it first before he ultimately uses force.
In combat he prefers to draw opponents into choke points so he can pick off foes via attrition. When that fails, then close combat is his next choice. The feel of stabbing his combat knife into an unarmored foe is just as satisfying as putting a bullet between their eyes for him.

Orignally an Nepleslian, Masakaji resettled to the Yugumo Cluster from Yamatai in YE 29. When the Jiyuuians declared independence in YE 30, he promptly joined the UOCPF. While he strongly believed in their cause as mediators, he was never one to shy away from violence. But despite his “aggressive/mercenary” tendencies, he managed to move up the ranks to Petty Officer Second Class at the collapse of the United Outer Colonies.
Masakaji met his temporary demise when he managed to hold off a platoon of unarmored NMX nekos at a choke point. Drawing them away from the last ship off the planet with his squad, he choosed to stay behind to when it became evident that one had to stay behind. No real match for them, the choke point allowed him to keep them suppressed long enough for his squad to get away. He awoke days later in his new NH-22C body with a simple note to himself. “Oh buggers…”
After the peacekeepers were formally dissolved in YE 33, Masakaji wondered around as a freelanced security officer for civilian ships due to his experience with the NMX. He intended to live the rest of his life as a freelancer as he had no intention to return to the inner territories of the Yamatai Empire. But the Lorath Matriarchy offered him an opportunity to join with a position close to what he had previously held.
