Sanda Hoshi was born in YE 18.
Sanda and her older sister Estrella fled Neplesla when they were very young due to the violence and infighting between the Reds and Greens on Nepleslian. Their family supported the Reds but could see that the Reds had little chance of wining so they sent their daughters to Yamatai.
In school, Sanda stood out among the other kids. She had a tattoo on her face and was far taller than all the other kids. Estrella, who was six years older tried to help her sister, but Sanda was just too much of a hothead and wound up getting kicked out of several schools. She eventually got mixed up in a gang. Nothing serious, but she did get in some major trouble. She was on her way to get in some very serious trouble when fate intervened.
Sanda was quite skilled with a knife and had a natural ability to move about quietly. Her gang decided that they were going to ambush someone and rob them. They chose what they believed was an easy mark. A Joto Heisho wearing an eye patch and with an arm in a sling came out of a pub one night. Sando, along with 3 others ambushed the lone man. Moving with incredible speed, the one eyed Joto Heisho knocked out the first attacker before pulling out a bayonet and parrying Sando's blade. Sando held her own but she soon found herself alone as her companions had either been knocked unconscious or had fled, leaving her alone. Much to her surprise, the one eyed man took her to a medic to get her cleaned up then walked her home. He said he was impressed with her fighting skills and said she should join the Star Army and put her skills to good use.
For about a month that one eyed man, who's name was Trowa Yamamoto stopped by her house to check on her, but to also check out her older sister Estrella. Sanda finally decided that she would enlist and see if it was worth her time. It was.
Sanda was a natural fighter and the Star Army took that raw skill and refined it into a fine weapon. She specialized in hand to hand combat and with blades. She finished boot camp just in time to attend her sister's wedding to Trowa. She also had a talent for recon and scouting which she was recommended and took the advance recon training.
Despite the age difference, Sanda and Estrella are very close. They share a love of baking and cooking, which they do together as much as possible.
Enlisted in YE 36 right after her 18th birthday.
YE 42 Kikyo Sector Bar Sanda goes through the Kikyo sector on her way to her first ship assignment. She meets Tatsugami Kozakura and Kwabba-an Ternifac-xuralkhi Whom she befriends.
Battle of Glimmergold Sanda took part in the Battle of Glimmergold, along with the two friends she had made before, Kwabba-an and Kozakura. Together, the three of them took over the control room of the scrapyard station then defended the ship against boarders. During this fight, Sanda injured her right shoulder and then made it worse by continuing to use it.
MISSION 1: HOMEWORLD After the Battle of Glimmergold, the crew of the new found YSS Resurgence visited the Imperial Palace and was charged by the Empress herself to travel around the Yamatai Empire and see how things were going now that the war was over. During the this time Sanda met her sister who had made for her a replacement cybernetic shoulder and arm, as well as a cybernetic left eye. There was also a train ride, a dinner prepared that no one ate and a rescue mission where Sanda missed all the action.
In 3月 YE 43, she was promoted to the rank of Nitô Hei.
Rescue on Hanako's World Sanda took part on a rescue mission to Hanako's world, where she and her crewmates rescued two lost soldiers, one of whom, Asakura Yayoi would join the crew of the Resurgence. On this mission, Sanda developed a great respect and admiration for the ships new XO, Koyama. She would also meet and butt heads with another new crewmember, Thaddeaus Maximus, who would cause no end to grief for the young Ranger.
MISSION 3: RESCUE AT ANISA Shore leave, shopping and a rescue mission. New crew members join the Resurgence.
MISSION 4: THE HAND THAT FEEDS A crew crises involving a smoke grenade pushes Sanda's annoyance with Thaddeus to the breaking point. The crew then attacks and destroys a Kuvexian cruiser. The Resurgence lands on the planet Valaad (An Rhy) where Sanda is given her first taste of command and appointed an acting NCO by Koyama. It's during a look around the local market place that Sanda learns that her parents, whom she hasn't heard from in 20 years, are alive. Although they were not in town, Sanda leaves her com number with a local to give to her parents when they return. Sanda, emotionally and physically stretched to the breaking point, has to correct a new team member, Frank Sterling. Frank, takes issue with Sanda's correction and tempers fly.
Candy Festival While on shore leave Sanda attends the Candy Festival on Yamatai. There she runs into Thomas Canterbury, a distant cousin by marriage, and Setsunu Meiosei. She also meets an extremely shy man named lane_ruskin, whom she talks with and then inspires to enlist.

https://stararmy.com/roleplay-forum/threads/resurgence-of-yamatai-mission-5-expanding-horizons.68782/ Mission to Pisces Station for IRC. Sanda ran into Caffran and the two really hit it off before the Res was sent on a rescue mission deep in unknown space on a machine moon. It was a failure of a mission, at least in Sanda's eyes. They were able to save several Nep crew but lost two Res crew in the process.
YE44.4 https://stararmy.com/roleplay-forum/threads/pub-night-with-the-resurgence.68963/ Return to Pisces Station for some much needed R&R after blotched mission turns into a nightmare as Giant Roaches attack pub.

Sanda is a natural fighter. She fought in a gang before joining the Star Army where her raw talent was refined into a skilled soldier. In addition, Sanda has had further training in CQC actions to enable her to be more effective when unarmored, and has received advanced weapons training to allow her to function with a wide range of weapons in the field. (Star Army Basic Infantry Training/Star Army Reconnaissance Training) She is especially skilled with a knife and her marksmanship is good enough to be a dedicated sniper but she prefers close range combat.
Sanda has a high level of survivability in the case they are cut off away from the main force. This includes but is not limited to the creation of shelters, hunting, cooking, trapping and other essential skills. Sanda can also accurately report their findings despite adverse conditions, enemy presence and technological restrictions. This means that the Ranger must have an excellent memory and be able to identify and approximate the amount of enemies in a glance. (Star Army Reconnaissance Training)
As there is a lack of support and increased personal risk in the line of duty of a Ranger, split second decisions can mean the difference between operational success and failure much more often than standard Infantry and Pilots. Rangers are expected to consistently display excellent logic in the face of adversity.
Sanda has a proficient understanding of psychology, unit cohesion, mental attrition, demoralization, and psychological warfare. Star Army Rangers are expected to apply their understanding of psychology to their actions in the field for the benefit of the Star Army.
Sanda loves to cook. She has quite an array of culinary delights and enjoys cooking for friends. She says that chopping vegetables in the kitchen is where she first discovered her love of knives.
