Family (or Creators)

Father: Yarani, Hiromichi Mother: Yarani, Masako


Born on Yamatai in YE 08, he led a somewhat privileged and mildly sheltered childhood, something that had made him bit naive about the ways of the world before joining the SAoY. He enjoyed outdoor sports during his childhood such as rock climbing, ATV based sports, and sailing. He spent much of his time before joining the Star Army studying engineering in Kyoto, Yamatai. During the two years before joining the the Star Army he was an engineering science student at the Western Kyoto Technical College.


Tasuku joined the Star Army of Yamatai in early YE 28 hoping to find adventure and excitement; only to find a serious and far more sobering situation during the first Mishhuvurthyar war. After a two mission stint as a Technical Sentry on the YSS Sakura, he was transferred to the YSS Goban where he served as the ships weapons officer(Starship Operations) until his disappearance when that ship was captured by a group of rogue Neko. When the rest of the Goban crew eventually caught up with the ship there was little trace of him, and he has since been classified as Missing In Action.

Tasuku was first assigned to the YSS Sakura under the command of Taisa Rufus Sydney, during the end of Sakura mission 4. He was present for the Yamatai conquest of Lor, and later participated in Sakura Mission's 5 and 6 as it attempted to unravel the mystery of Black Spiral and the Mishhuvurthyar. He went MIA during Goban mission 1, not long after Goban had engaged in a battle with a BellyStabber II class pirate vessel.

He had refused to 'upgrade' to a Yamataian body while on the Sakura, a with complex reasoning behind the decision. In his personal logs he half jokingly and sarcastically referred to the Sakura medical sprites as 'vicious body snatching harpys', after the last time they attempted to pressure him into an 'upgrade', but even then his attitude toward the subject showed signs of running deeper than a simple dislike of the medical sprites.

Tasuku was discovered on HX-12 and rescued by the YSS Eucharis in YE 31, almost immediately(40min) he was thrust into the Battle of Nataria, and the beginning of the second Mishhuvurthyar war. After which he retired from military service.
