Sutahira stands at 6'0“, with black hair and green eyes. His skin is a cream-colored white, with freckles on the bridge of his nose. He has no facial hair, preferring to keep his face clean-shaven. While he has a Japanese-style name, his features are inherently modern-day-American in nature. He weighs around 190 pounds, with almost but not quite buzzed hair. He has a tattoo of the Star Army Medical symbol on his back. He often uses unscented soaps, with unscented deodorant. His voice is deep, but will be raised in times of stress such as mass casualty incidences, the instance Sutahira is injured, etc.
Sutahira is generally nice, but angers easily under pressure, often snapping at medical assistants who pester him. He is very open and friendly when not on the battlefield, and will usually have a drink or two with friends and engage in conversation. The loss of his father when he was young, however, has left him emotionally scarred and particularly disdainful to people of the Nepleslian Imperium. He often has nightmares, one time (though he would never admit this) almost killing a fellow medic in his sleep during training. He is fiercely loyal and protective of his team, willing to die for them. He will often rush into a situation with his team, encouraging and protecting them.
Sutahira Medikku was born in YE 18 .
Sutahira, born in YE 18 on Yamatai, joined the Yamatain Star Army at 20. Preferring not to become a Minkan, mostly because of his low income and little money, he was birthed by two Human parents and can trace his roots to old Nepleslian ancestors, whom he hates. His father was killed in YE 28 during the Nepleslian Independence, causing Sutahira to hate Nepleslians. His mother was deeply distraught by his passing, and fell into a depression. When Sutahira joined the Star Army of Yamatai, his mother was worried for him and felt alone. Sutahira often writes to and visits her when on Yamatai. His parents, some of the few Humans left on Yamatai, surviving The Great Plague of YE 08 due to their presences on a cargo ship while the plague silently spread with, fortunately, no infected cargo or personnel, and rejected the Minkan treatments, preferring to stay “Pure Humans”. His parents' miraculous survival of the plague prompted Sutahira to be trained as a medic in the Star Army in YE 38, being stationed on the YSS Kaiyo once done.
