Physical Characteristics

Height: 5'11” Mass: 145lbs Measurements: Build and Skin Color: Toshiaki has a lanky build as he is somewhat light weight for his height. His skin color is a light tan retained from his old Geshrin body.

Eyes and Facial Features: Toshiaki has angular facial features and a prominent chin. His eyes are oriental-shaped but also blue showing a hint of Nordic ancestry.

Hair Color and Style: Dark brown hair with a very short military-style buzz cut.

Distinguishing Features: Toshiaki's hair has various designs cut into it that change every couple of weeks. Toshiaki keeps his hair short so that he can change the designs within a short period of time, or at need grow the hair back and have a standard buzz-cut. His favorite designs include dueling dragons and the Yamatai flag.

Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Toshiaki is a very inquisitive person, sometimes to the point of obsession. As a young boy he was always full of questions and if adults were not forth-coming in their answers he would always try to find alternative methods of finding the truth. This curiosity has not always endeared him to others as it has sometimes meant discovering secrets that have been damaging to reputations. Toshiaki has gradually learned the value of keeping the secrets he finds rather than blurting them out to his father or friends. He also tends to be very plan-oriented. While Toshiaki can do some improvising at need, it does not come naturally to him. Socially, Toshiaki is fairly unremarkable and while he is rarely the life of the party, since learning to control his tendency to reveal everything he knows, he rarely causes any problems or awkwardness. Toshiaki stays in shape, but is not a body builder. Most of his exercise comes from running and swimming with little work on the upper body. Finally, Toshiaki has little capability to reveal his own thoughts and feelings especially to women. This is due to the string of failed relationships his father had in his childhood where Toshiaki saw his father consistently lose women after trusting them too soon.

Likes: Running/swimming, studying (with a particular emphasis in psychology), people watching, politics, computer science, and drinking. Dislikes: Close relationships, improvising, most sports, doing mechanical repair/upkeep, debate, and laziness. Goals: To become a high level field operative in SAINT and then eventually the head of SAINT


Family (or Creators)

Absentee mother and a lawyer father


Born in YE 12, Maeda Toshiaki was the son of a corporate lawyer and a mother that was a small business owner. When Toshiaki was 10 months old his mother left his father and left to a different planet. His father refused to talk more about his mother. Toshiaki was eventually able to find a business associate of his mother's and from that contact information. This however did not turn out as he expected. She rejected his attempts at reconnecting and told Toshiaki to never contact her again. This hit to his self-esteem and the consistent failures of his father's relationships made Toshiaki a very mistrustful person by his teenage years. Instead, from an early age Toshiaki learned how to have a one-way relationship with a person, one in which he would learn about others without having to give away anything.

In his early years, he would often tell his few friends and his father (with whom he has a very close relationship) about many of the things he had learned. But when this led to revealing his father's drinking habit to his father's law partner, almost leading to a break-up of a successful partnership, Toshiaki learned the power of secrets. He thus became far more circumspect about what he told others (with the exception of his father, the one person Toshiaki never hides anything from…almost).

Toshiaki excelled in his studies and was often at or near the top of his class. When it came time to decide upon a career, Toshiaki knew he wanted where he could be both challenged and learn. His decision to join the Star Army was deeply opposed by his father, who tended to lean towards pacifism in his political outlook. Knowing that his father was a far better debater, Toshiaki never liked the idea of using rhetoric to persuade as he believes if the facts are not enough then the person probably doesn't deserve the effort needed to convince them, he decided to simply sign-up and present his service as a fait accompli to his father. Though upset, Mr. Maeda has grudgingly accepted his son's decision, though always hoping he will see the error of his ways.

Finally, Toshiaki was born a Geshrin. But when Yamataian enhancements began to become available he knew he wanted an upgrade. He and his father both became Yamataian in early YE 29. Toshiaki took a new body which looked as close to his own as possible.

Fort Ready

After enlisting in the Star Army, Toshiaki was assigned to Fort Ready for basic training, where he is currently enrolled in Class 5.



Toshiaki 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. He is fluent in Nepleslian and Yamataian. He can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc.


Toshiaki received hand-to-hand combat training, followed up with a rigorous training program. He is skilled and experienced in combat both in Yamatai-like conditions and in zero-gravity, with and without weapons. Weapons he is trained in include energy pistols, knives, and power armor.

Technology Operation

Toshiaki is capable of operating any computer system that uses the Kessaku OS, found on all Star Army starships. She is proficient in entering and/or searching for information. He not only is familiar with basic functions but also at hacking terminals, a skill he would occasionally use to gain interesting information.


Toshiaki received basic mathematics training, to including up to algebra and trigonometry. Toshiaki also knows more than the Star Army's requirements in mathematics having studied up to calculus-level mathematics as part of his wide-ranging study interests.


Toshiaki became very interested in politics from his semi-activist father (even if he doesn't always agree with the old man). He thus has studied politics and the history of the Star Empire. In addition he is very knowledgeable in psychology as this was his favorite subject to study as a boy and teen.


As part of his never-ending quest to find information that others would rather he didn't, Toshiaki has learned some techniques of questionable ethics. Thus he knows some basic pick-pocketing and lock picking, though more complex locks will likely stump him.


Running and swimming are two of Toshiaki's favorite past times. While not possessing the greatest upper body strength he isn't a weakling and is rather fast and agile.


Maeda Toshiaki is currently a Santo Hei in the Star Army of Yamatai. He receives a weekly salary of -salary- per week.
