Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Riko Bors (pronounced Boars) is a stubborn and hardnosed individual, and can be quite agitated before his morning coffee and cigarette. Since tobacco is illegal in Yamatai, Bors smokes electronic tobacco-less cigarettes that emits water vapor instead of smoke, but still contains nicotine. If given the opportunity he will take a real one whenever he can. Aside from that, Bors is brusque and prefers to keep things simple and less complicated. He is also not a huge people person, preferring to be alone where he can think and take care of his weapons, a personal hobby of his. Even though he dislikes people, he will defend his crewmates/squad mates to the death, having owed his life for one protecting him and he expects the same from them. Bors is hardly ever seen without a cigarette in his mouth, and when acceptable, nursing a cup of brandy or other alcoholic beverage.

Family (or Creators)

Karl Riko (deceased) June Riko (deceased)


Riko Bors was originally a Nepleslian,named Bors Riko, born in YE 3, to Karl and June Riko, both active members of the Nepleslian Reds. Bors happily lived with them for ten years until they both died of mysterious causes. Rather than go live with his grandparents or foster care, Bors joined up with a Crime syndicate calling themselves The Orange Moons, who made a profit in drug trafficking and smuggling.

Life Within the Orange Moons wasn’t the easiest at first, since he was still just a boy he was tasked with normal delivery task to locals and the occasional act of thievery, along with anything else his superiors tasked him out with. After a few years, Bors quickly learned that he had an affinity for nearly anything with a motor in it, something that caught his boss’s eye after he saved several of his comrades by hotwiring a shuttle and flying them to safety. Shortly after this incident Bors was the Orange Moons's top driver and was quickly progressing throughout the syndicate ranks.

By the time Bors was twenty he had established himself within the Orange Moons and was also apart of the upper echelon of command. Bors was very efficient at his job, bringing in more revenue for the organization then most of his peers, which led his superiors to put a lot of faith in him and left him alone for the most part.

Unfortunately for Bors his luck took a turn for the worst, during one routine shipment, a minor scuffle came up between Bors's crew and a crew of a rival gang over payment. Bors stepped in to try and smooth things over but things escalated quickly and before he knew it guns had been drawn and he was in the middle of a firefight. Bors barely escaped with his life all thanks to his second in command who had pulled him into their escape vehicle before a large explosion engulfed the warehouse in flames, destroying the shipment and killing everyone who was left inside. After explaining the situation to his boss, Bors was given two options, he could either disappear from Nepleslia and everything to do with the planet, or he could stay there and be hunted down and killed for costing the Moon's to lose so much on a simple shipment. Also to set an example for the rest of the Orange Moons, Bors's hands were cut off at the wrist for failure.

After the incident Bors went to a doctor who specialized in cybernetics to get his hands fixed. The Doctor had been working on a cybernetic modification that mixed cybernetics with human flesh, letting them feel more natural and The bodies she used were provided by Bors, who needed a place to dump bodies so they had gotten along quite well for several years. When Bors came to her, showing her his situation, she gladly repaired him. Shortly after his quick visit, Bors left Nepleslia and fled for the Planet Yamatai thinking that would be the safest place for him to lay low for a bit.

As soon as he could Bors altered his name to better fit into Yamataian society and also help him create a new identity for himself. After five years of laying low , acting as security or other odd jobs that required some hired muscle, he decided to enlist in the Star Army Infantry, hoping to get out and see the galaxy again, and maybe meet up with his old bosses and put a bullet through their head, for old times sake.



Riko Bors was assigned to the YSS Eucharis, shorty after boarding he was on his first mission to rescue a duplicate of the ships captain. Shortly after making planet fall, literally falling from the upper atmosphere and injuring one of his ribs, he was separated from the rest of his crew-mates. Avoiding detection from NMX scouts Bors eventually regrouped with his comrades and engaged NMX forces in a firefight. After getting his half of his left hand blown off, and nearly getting vaporized by an explosion, Bors had a brief period of rest at an ad-hoc base camp, though they quickly left after a brief search and discovery of the missions VIP. While in transit back to the Eucharis, Bors shuttle was attacked by NMX forces killing the shuttles pilot and damaging the shuttles integrity. Bors quickly took over the controls of the ship and flew it to the safety of the Eucharis, only suffering two casualties: the former pilot and a speaker that kept reminding Bors that the shields were down until his combat knife went through it.

The Nest

Bors and the Eucharis crew found themselves in the face of another mission, this time into the belly of the beast. After a somewhat routine boarding and initial fanning out, Bors accidentally blew their cover by making a rookie mistake, alerting the entire ship their presents. Bors pitched in and fought his way to the core with the rest of the Eucharis crew, setting several explosives and trying to make up for his mistake earlier by doing the best he could. After the charges were blown and the team escaped though the coolant vents, Bors was happy to have pick up again, seeing as he didn't enjoy the water park so much.

Hanako's World

After the Crews eventful mission, it was time for some relaxation on Hanako's World. After landing and going to the shops for some causal wear the crew hit the beach for some fun and drink. Unfortunately for Bors he doesn't remember much of it, seeing as he consumed enough booze to keep a platoon of Nepleslian marines out of trouble.

Odds and Ends

After returning from there vacation, the crew had a slight mystery on their hands with a ship that Captain Hanako bought with goods. Bors didn't really help out much searching the ship, not that he didn't try hes just not the best detective.


After a quick awards cerimony, Bors and crew enjoyed a nice hot meal at a high class restaurant, and shortly after the meal He and several other crew members played a fun game of truth or dare that quickly became 'interesting'.

Exploring the Dark Labyrinth/Peoples of the North

With the Eucharis sent to aid the Gargants in the Ether System, Bors was sent planet side to aid them in a stealth mission to destroy or cripple an NMX base. Things quickly went to hell with their shuttle being shot out of the sky near the NMX base entrance. After an initial investigation and some mine removal, the Away team and Bors were attacked by a squad of rippers and in the ensuing firefight Bors took a shot straight to the chest which nearly killed him if it weren't for Takeyu patching him up as he lay bleeding behind a rock he was using as cover. Soon after the Team returned to the Eucharis, seeing as the base was too well defended to proceed any further. Upon returning to the ship, and after a quick dip in the heymosynth tubes, Bors helped the rest of the crew prepare for the holidays.

Winter Leave

With the holidays around again, it was off to Yammati for leave. Sticking to his usual plan of spending some cash, Bors went shopping with his roommate before quickly being called back to the Ship again for another mission.
