Physical Appearence

  • Species: Yamataian
  • Gender: Male
  • Age: 19
  • Height: 5'11”/180 cm.
  • Mass: 175 lb.
  • Skin Color: Light Japanese tone
  • Hair Color: Jet Black
  • Build: At first glance, Ranji appears to be your average Yamataian, but upon closer inspection, you can see that his muscles, while not large, are very toned and well-defined. This is due in part to his near-obsessive compulsion for movement and his inability to sit still (not really a physical problem, basically he's hyper). To burn off this excess energy he seems to have, he decided to put it into exercise and it has more than paid off.
  • Facial Features:Ranji is by all accounts still quite young, and his face reflects that. His green eyes that shine with a keen intelligence, yet they still betray his almost childlike curiousity and desire to learn and do all that he can.
  • Distinguishing Features:None really, save for his toned body, which only seems to be noticable when he is wearing his training uniform.

Psychological Profile


Quite energetic, even for a Yamataian, he loves doing almost anything. Fairly laid back, there isn't too much that Ranji takes seriously, yet if he does, he shows a focus and tenacity that can be hard to match. Of all things, Ranji believes his body to be a temple of sorts, and trains it to it's limit constantly, avoiding any and all toxic things such as alcohol or drugs, though that doesn't mean he won't eat some junk food on his downtime. While cooped up on a small ship, however, he studies constantly, reviewing what he knows, and striving to learn anything new. His thirst for knowledge can sometime get him into trouble if he's not careful, as he may jump to a new discipline or philosophy without actually doing any prior research on it.

Likes, Dislikes, and Goals

Likes: Exercise, reading, strategy/war games, piloting his power armor, and noodles (oh, and Datenshi!!!!) Dislikes: Seafood, sitting still, television (or it's equivalent), and alcohol Goals: To become the best warrior he possibly can.


After his mother died giving birth to him with his father nowhere to be found, Ranji was taken in by his grandfather, Hiroki. Having trained since he was a small boy to become an honorable warrior, Ranji sets off on his own for the training academy, where he learned how to pilot power armor in hopes of being assigned to duty in the Yamataian Star Army and one day fufill the dreams and wishes his grandfather instilled in him of becoming a true and honored warrior.



Ranji was trained by his grandfather in hand-to-hand combat, as well as kendo from the time he was six until he turned eighteen. Though he has been considered proficient in his grandfather's eyes, he still continues to train and refine his techniques nearly daily. He also has spent plenty of time in combat training, working on his marksmanship. While it is acceptable, he truly shines in CQB, prefering a bladed (or energy-bladed) weapon to firearms. Also has some training in zero-g enviroments, but only in a power armor.


Fluent in English and capable of short conversation in Japanese, he has enough skills to properly file reports and send/recieve transmissions to and from his power armor whether in combat or an escort mission.

Technology Operation

Capable in using the latest Kessaku OS system, as well as some slightly older builds.


He recieved basic mathematics training from his grandfather as a child, and has begun teaching himself the basics of calculus.


Ranji has a very well toned muscle structure from spending hours training himself daily. He also is a very capable swimmer and a good distance runner, capable of running five (miles?) in approximately 40 minutes with little to no exhaustion.


He is very intelligent, as well as an exceptionally fast learner. Learned basic squad stratagies from his grandfather, as well as being quite tactful. Despite this, he is somewhat shy and still has trouble speaking in front of large crowds, causing him to prefer more of a support role than that of a commander, though he will accept the duty if he feels it necessary.


He learned basic psychology and sociology as a teenager, as well as old Japanese philosophy (standard culture with its blending of bushido) from his grandfather. He has high moral values and a deep belief that justice and decency will prevail.
