Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Skirnir Josva is a very headstrong kind of man, he feels as though, because he remains in a human body he has to prove himself to his comrades. This inferiority complex drives him to go out of his way to show his worth. He does this through impulsive actions and and a staunch determination to achieve anything he sets his mind to. This reckless attitude can often rub people the wrong way, making them think he may have an authority problem which in turn makes them wary of him. This makes it difficult for Josva to make friends.

He feels most at home when in a Hayabusa Starfighter, and to some degree softens up when in one. He demonstrates a playful and cocky side that can often be seen when in recreational time. His love of his Starfighter is often coupled with a defensiveness when his skills as a pilot are questioned. this along with his inferiority complex can lead to him getting in a lot of fights.

Despite his abrasive nature he is extremely loyal to his allies and when somebody takes the time to get to know him they find that he can be a very playful and friendly individual that will do almost anything to protect those close to him. Having people close to him also allows him to confide in them about his insecurities instead lashing out although sometimes he struggles to do this.

Family (or Creators)

Skirnir Erick (Father) and Skirnir Adina (Mother)


Josva was born to loving parents on a small planet under the rule of the Yamatai Star Empire. Growing up seemed relatively normal in Josva's eyes, he would go to school, play with friends and play on local sport teams. He spent a lot of time growing up playing sports; joining several teams and becoming captain of his hometown Rugby team.

He preferred to spend his time playing sport as he was not a fan of his home life. Although his parent's loved him they were seen as radicals and were part of a small human “purist” organization that were against the use of Minkan bodies despite the great plague they encountered in their youth. Josva did not understand the stance his parents held and decided to stay out of it.

Due to this when Josva turned 16 he left home to become a pilot as he thought learning to fly would be the best way out of the life his parents lived. He joined up with the military in hopes of becoming a fighter pilot and moved to the central planet of Yamatai to undergo basic training. It was here Josva gained his first full, real exposure to Minkan culture. During basic training Josva found he was getting outshone by some of his comrades which lead to him to begin to resent his parents for refusing to move into Minkan bodies. This weakness in himself forced him to drive himself and push himself as much as he could to prove he was just as capable as any others in his unit. During his downtime in basic training,while the rest of his unit would relax and spend time having fun, Josva sought to better himself and improve on his skills. He decided he would spend his down time learning to drive and by the end of basic he had learned how to drive cars and trucks.

He then went on to flight school where he learned to fly star fighters, it was here Josva became comfortable with himself and really felt at home, he excelled in flying and softened up slightly. Upon finishing among the top pilots at flight school, in fact being listed among the top 2 percent in the school, he signed up to a starship to begin his career.
