Hoshi in RP

In 2017 and 2018, RP with Hoshi has won the Outstanding Original Sci-Fi award in the Tournament of Simulations on the Ongoing Worlds blog. The first roleplay centered around a secret mission after the Ketsurui Samurai were disbanded while the second focused on a flashback of when Hoshi was captaining the YSS Kikyō and led from the front. There's no telling what 2019 RP will be written, but it's sure to be fun to write and, hopefully, fun to read!

Physical Description

The hair atop her head turns from deep blue to a lighter blue that fades to completely white tips below, which touches the tops of her hips. She has wide, large, deep blue eyes and a pink, ovular face that has side-swept bangs and chunks of hair on either side. She is completely flat in the chest with slender legs and thin hips and floats more often than walks unless she is wearing heels. She is the absolute minimum height for a NH-33, four foot nine inches.

Personality

Charismatic and confident but also cool and mellow when she needs to be, Taiyou Hoshi is an excitable and affable Neko. She is aged and somewhat wise, but that is not to say things don't pass over her head at times when she is lied to or perhaps not given a true account of events. She knows not the perils of introspection as she has never sat down to decide if her morals are properly aligned or if she has ever made any grave mistakes.

History

 Taiyou Hoshi was born early in YE 26 in the city of Kyoto, Yamatai in a vat, as one would expect of a Neko. She was sent off as the sensors operator with the crew of the YSS Yamatai for its launch that same year.

Quote from Pre-Mission Eight: Kanjō
“…When I died during the Second War, I lost two and a half months. I met and made a lover in that time. When I came out of the tube, I didn't know who I was looking at as they cried on my shoulder.” Hoshi had grown cold and added, “That's not easy for me to talk about.”

She stayed with the ship until it was destroyed in YE 34. She was asked to captain the YSS Kikyō. Then she stayed with the First Expeditionary Fleet and fought the wars Yamatai held against others with pride and dignity. Many months after Taiyou Hoshi's rank up to Chusa in YE 36, she transferred to the YSS Imperator as the XO and left the YSS Kikyō in good hands.

Quote from YSS Imperator Mission One: Star by Star
“I want all stations operating at full capacity!” Taiyou Hoshi called out to the ship through KAMI. “That excludes nobody working on this ship!” She rested in her chair and put a hand on her cup next to her and for a moment she paused like that, looking over the sensors data, before she brought the drink up to her mouth and sipped it idly. There was no plan, but if there had been, she would be thinking how it was all going according to it.
Quote from YSS Imperator Mission One: Star by Star
She sighed briefly and tilted her head and the white ends of her hair moved against the arm rest of her chair before falling off of it. She swept her hair up in both hands, bringing it behind her back, before pushing it all out in front of her. Then her deep blue eyes settled on Kaede's and she went on. “But if I may, I recommend we let the Imperator do as much damage as she can as a final blow and let the fleet show us their own maneuvers for a few moments, just to gather intelligence on their tactics and composition. If we don't study our enemy's friends, how will we know what they know?”

After a successful first mission, the Imperator faced a boarding action, which left the ship in a state of minimal disrepair.

Quote from YSS Imperator Mission Two: Going In Deep
The Taisa seemed to be twitching slightly, annoyed. He was looking through his SPINE at the ship as his eyes settled on Hoshi. He gave a slight growl before speaking in a rough tone, “This is why I hate being in these broken-ass warzones without amassed forces. Take this as a lesson, if you have to fight you fight with the numbers and weapons on your side.” Hoshi stood and called out, “Reports are to be sent within the hour!” She looked to the engineer and then to weapons ops. “I want the captain to know everything you know and think about this mission!” She sat back down and hooked into SPINE once more. “Come on KAMI… Are you okay?” Hoshi thought to the ship and began a conversation with the KAMI on board the Imperator.

Soon thereafter, she was once again asked to captain a ship, the YSS Kaiyō.

Quote from Pre-Mission Eight:Kaminari
“I will serve the Empress to the best of my ability,” Hoshi said… “I have not failed in doing so at this time and I do not plan to fail in the future. All of you are responsible for upholding the needs of the Empire in every way you can.

Crew of the Kaiyō then went to recapture a SAoY installation on Komorebi from the L'Kor.

Quote from Mission Eight:Hangeki
Hoshi said as she steepled hands, “It looks like they want a fight and they're getting one.”

On their next mission, they fought on a L'Kor space station of great significance and crippled the L'Kor's stronghold. Effectively, the L'Kor threat became insubstantial thanks to the Kaiyō's efforts.

Soon thereafter, they found themselves exploring the Temple of the Stars.

Hoshi seemed to truly appreciate the respect everyone had shown for this temple and she nodded to them each with a stern expression on her pink lips…

She was quietly asked to perform a mission after Year-End Holidays in YE 40 in which rogue samurai were to be eliminated.

Quote from Bushido: The Way of the Dying
“All targets have been eliminated,” Hoshi said. There was the stink of the open wounds, burnt layers of flesh, and broken bodies. Hoshi heard the storehouse team's chatter as if from a fishbowl while she laid Sangō down and simply added to her previous statement. Hoshi's voice was cold and distant, “Ready for extraction.”

Soon, the crew left secretly for another universe, Ayenee!

Quote from Mission Eleven: Sakidō.
“This is the planet of Ayenee, and we are all here with the same goals in mind, to protect. We may not be in Yamatai controlled and lawed space and it is not our place to force Yamataian laws and customs on the cultures and peoples on planet of Ayenee. Instead, this is our base of operations while exploring the planet without disruption to those living here and the space around this planet, as it has been under distress as of late and it has been deemed we can solve this upset. Together, we can.”

They trained there, with mixed bag results. After training, Hoshi and the crew of the Kaiyō switched universes, named Naze Sorairo for the appearance of the universe's space, which was light blue instead of inky black. They were to take out an unknown threat, which turned out to be an entity living within an aether sphere that was within a water wold.

Quote from Mission Twelve: Naze Sorairo
“Naze Sorairo,” Hoshi said in Yamataigo to Eden. Meaning, 'Why is the sky blue?'

Back in the Kikyō Sector, the team was to check out a planet once inhabited by Hanako.

Quote from Mission Thirteen: Miyabi
Hoshi broke the silence as she said, “This mission finds us going to an unlikely place. One I only heard about recently. It was a place of an independent farm and not much else, until now. Electromagnetic shockwaves are emanating from the planet. The Star Army doesn't know who is inhabiting it, but wants us to go find out.

The planet split apart, killing some crew and damaging others' Mindy's while a vessel entered the system. She sent her Second Officer on a mission to the vessel. Now the lone command staff on the bridge, she soon made the decision to listen to her bridge crew and blow the planet apart—after getting confirmation from Ketsuru-Shôshô to use whatever means possible to stop the errant planet.

In YE 40 she acquired a kilometer of land through Land Grants and a Star Army Cabin, Type 39 which she is in the process of finding time to build. 1)

Hoshi lost her friend and XO from active duty when Teien Eden became in control of an enemy dictator in an alternate universe and relinquished her position on the Kaiyō to commit herself to that. Hoshi and the Kaiyō had a new XO, Kaze "Kamikaze" Hikaru as the Kaiyō explored a derelict YSS vessel and the odd sensor scans from the planet it was orbiting. After that odd and slightly creepy mission end, Eden joined the crew as XO once more and gave a rousing End of Year speech upon the crew discovering her in the onsen, at which point she let them know they would be establishing the ship in a tour of duty into Kuvexian space, seeking to disrupt the enemy- as was the first Kaiyō's intention. Full of dedication, Hoshi is captaining the Fuji-class into the belly of the beast in order to dismember it from its most sensitive internals.
