Family (or Creators)

Father Geshrin (Tadao) and Mother Nepleslian(Catherine)


Trowa was a bright eyed and happy child. He was both loved and cared for by his parents. But when he was 6 years old, his mother had had enough of Tadao’s aunts interfering with her raising of her son that she took Trowa and left. Tadao had been stationed with the First Fleet and had little leave time. So Kat took Trowa and went back to the life she had known. Trowa learned many skills from his mother during his this time. He learned how to throw knifes and how to fight with them. He also performed in some of his mother’s plays and became very good at military rolls.

After almost six years, Tadao came back home and found his wife and son gone. It didn’t take very long for him to find them though. From the money Kat had made from her plays and performances, they were able to buy a lovely home away from Tadao’s aunt. Tadao began to teach his teenage son about the military. Trowa loved the military; he loved those big warships and the fancy uniforms. Tadao taught him many survival skills and the history and organization of the Yamataian Star Army.

Trowa also liked to go down to the local tavern and listen to the space travelers and the enlisted men tell stories. He became good friends with a Santô Hei named Ninx. Ninx was a fun guy, who loved a good drink and a good joke. But he was a little shy around women. One night he finally got the guts to ask a lady to dance. Much to his dismay, she said that she’d love to. They hadn’t been even finished the first song when a brash Taii came in and ordered Ninx to get lost. Ninx didn’t know what to do so he just stood there. The Taii then commented on how stupid he looked and that he should go find a rock to bang his head against. Trowa decided that this Taii needed to be taught a lesson in manners, so he and Ninx planned.

A month later, there was a big military ball for all members of the Yamataian Star Army. Trowa was allowed to go because he was the son of a Taisa Tadao. At the dance, the cocky Taii was there so Trowa decided that now was the time. Trowa disguise himself as a Shôshô named Torra and then led Ninx to where the Taii and a lady were dancing. Trowa, in a gruff, Prussian accent gave the Taii a good chewing out about bad manners. He then went on with this big elaborate story about how Santô Hei had saved his life and was a war hero. Suddenly, the lady though that this Santô Hei was a lot more interesting than this rude Taii. Ninx got to dance with the lady but he and Trowa almost got caught. The lady happened to be a Chujo’s daughter who knew a Shôshô Torra. She invited Trowa and Ninx to meet her father. Luckily, the good Chujo had had one to many drinks and Trowa was able to answer he questions concerning the Shôshô’s family with simple indirect answers.

The Taii found out about what Trowa had pulled however and was very angry. He paid several men to jump Ninx in an ally. Trowa saw what was happening and lost it. He simply lost it. With a loud Nepleslian war cry he learned from his mother, Trowa charged head long into the fight. Trowa and Ninx fought together and soon had the paid bullies whipped. But the Taii mad beyond rational thought at having been made a fool again pulled out an energy pistol and shot Trowa in the face. Luckily for Trowa, the Taii was a very poor shot and his shot was only a glancing blow. However, Trowa lost use of that eye and had to have a cybernetic replacement.

Trowa was both subconscious and proud about his cybernetic eye. Since Yamataian culture frowned on cybernetics, Trowa as though others looked down on him. But at the same time, he was proud because it made him unique and he was never one to care what others thought of him. So, at the suggestion of his mother, Trowa kept his cybernetic eye covered by a black eye patch made of a translucent martial. Trowa can see out of it, but no one can see his cybernetic eye, unless one looks very closely.

Trowa is a fun guy who loves to entertain people with jokes, songs, stories and impersonations. He has a knack for imitating accents. Most of what he learned was from when he traveled with his mother. She taught him how to fill many rolls on stage and many times Trowa would imitate an accent of some of the other actors.


Trowa can be a bit of a rogue (must be the Nepleslian side of him). He hates people who thing that there better than everyone else and that they deserve more respect. Trowa thinks that you must earn your respect. To that end, he will often pull pranks on who he considers “stuck up” people. He also hates military brass that seems to have nothing better to do than to give underlings a hard time.


Trowa is a descent fighter. His reflexes are quick but he lacks style. He learned basic hand to hand combat from his father which helped a lot when he went to basic training, followed up with a rigorous training program. Trowa learned many a knife trick from his mother, who used to perform in the circus. He always has a “pencil sharpener” (throwing knife) and a boot knife on him. Trowa became skilled and experienced in combat both in Yamatai-like conditions and in zero-gravity, with and without weapons during boot camp. His training included energy pistols, knives, and power armor. Trowa also has a fascination with weapons. His favorites are revolvers, which he likes to wear in a cross-draw holster.


Trowa is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other characters through headsets, starships, power armor, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. Trowais fluent in both Nepleslian and Yamataian. He can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc. He also has an ear for accents and can, with a little practice pick up on dialects and accents and mimic them.


Trowa is very observant and a quick learner. Growing up, when he heard a new accent, he would listen to it as much as possible, then go home and practice speaking like that for hours. After a few days he would go and try it out on a native speaker. Sometimes he was able to fool the native speaker, other times he was way off. But he’s very persistent at it. He is fluent in both Nepleslian and Yamataian, which he learned from his parents.
