Preferred Plots

Physical Characteristics

  • Height: 370.84cm (12' 2”)
  • Mass: Approximately 1 metric ton.
  • Measurements:

Build and Skin Color: Like many Kodians, Zuyev is a towering figure at just over twelve feet tall, and with incredibly broad shoulders. While some would mistake his large belly as his being out of shape, the muscles under his fur and raw strength he can bring to bare are proof that this isn't true. His fur, thick and shaggy, is a deep and almost chocolate-like brown, and underneath his fur is dark black skin.

Eyes and Facial Features: His face is broad, with a short muzzle on which is a ebony-black nose, and a pair of sharp eyes sit on either side of it. One eye is natural, with a deep black color to it. His left eye is cybernetic, with a ring of metal surrounding it while it otherwise sits in the socket like a natural eye, and its lens is a light blue color.

Ears: For a Kodian, Zuyev's ears are perfectly normal, save for the fact that his are tipped with white fur.

Hair Color and Style: His “hair” is simply his fur. Its normally covered by a black and white leather cap traditionally worn by many of his people, and he doesn't take much time in styling it or anything like that.

Distinguishing Features: Aside from the fact that he's a twelve foot tall ursoid surrounded by Yamataians and Nekovalkyrja when on duty, Zuyev's cybernetic eye is the only real distinguishing feature that he has.

Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Zuyev is a reserved man who seems to prefer being a passive observer of his environment over being an extremely active participant. Where he can he likes to examine and watch those around him, learning their habits and behaviors over time, and at the same time he likes to keep himself as closely guarded as possible. When in more private company he lets his guard down and begins to open up more. At these times he can be seen to be a open soul, though still not the quickest to trust others. His free time is often spent in silence finger painting, carving small stone art, or meditating on the events of the day while listening to calming music or sounds of nature.

When on duty some have described him as seeming almost too seasoned and bitter for a medical professional, at least at his rank. It comes from his early years before first contact with the Yamataians, where he excelled in medicine even at a young age, and was exposed to all sorts of troubles and problems that patients can suffer - sometimes of their own stupidity. More common visitors to the medical bay will find themselves regarded over the rim of his monocle with a withering sigh as he stops whatever he is doing at the time to tend to their needs. Because after all, no matter how much people may grate at his nerves with their blunders and mistakes, he is a medical professional, and he feels moral obligation to treat people in need.

  • Likes: Finger painting, carving stone, meditation, the sounds of nature, finishing up reports to superiors, well-made Coffee, and fried Rulian with a honey glaze.
  • Dislikes: Nosy people, patients who don't listen to what he tells them to do, “repeat offenders” who always seem to need to go to medical, and what he would call “ignorant and stupid” questions about his race and culture.
  • Goals: To prove himself as a competent and capable soldier, and to see the galaxy.

Eighteen years before the Yamataians would ever discover the Kodian people, Zuyev Gorshkav had just been born to a bio-medical engineer and a practicing surgeon for parents. In the virtual labyrinths of Gashmere's settlements he had made his home. While light years away there were people often fighting and dying for some cause or another, for the most part the planet was in peace, and Zuyev would find himself laying back on the grass staring up at the stars as he grew up. Often he would take one, several, or even all of his younger siblings with him out on these excursions as they grew older. In school he showed an aptitude for medicine and medical sciences, something his parents were proud of, and it was generally the assumption that he would follow in one of his parent's footsteps once he was out of school.

However nobody could have predicted the Nozomi coming when he was only eighteen years old. A new influx of technology accelerated and revolutionized schooling and teaching, opened the young Kodian to new languages, and also instilling in him a sudden fascination with finally meeting somebody from beyond his own planet. It wasn't until he was twenty seven years old, two years out of school and already diligently working as an intern in a hospital so he could save up for a planned journey, when the chance to join the Star Army was brought to his attention. Rather than leave his planet as a civilian on his own funds, seeing only a limited few places, he was given the opportunity to join the military, and go to a wide number of places while at the same time being able to say he was helping defend his homeworld from threats they didn't themselves know about until the Yamataians had arrived.

Episode: "A Fistfull of KS"



Born on Gashmere means that he is naturally fluent in Kodian, while his service in the Star Army has made him fluent in Nepleslian and Yamataian as well. He understands basic radio operations enough to receive or send transmissions from headsets, power armors, ship communication systems, and shuttles in various conditions in and out of combat. He is fluent enough in all three languages to issue orders, write reports, and other activities.


Zuyev has undergone rigorous and thorough training in hand to hand combat, backed up with a comprehenisve physical training regimen to keep himself in shape. He has training for both in gravity or zero-gravity environments, unarmed and armed. He also knows how to use bladed weaponry, grenades, energy pistols, power armors, and rifles.

Technology Operations

Already familiar with Kodian computer operating systems, he has received further training to make him familiar with, and capable of using any sort of computer that operates on the Kessaku OS found on any and all Star Army starships. He is fully capable of entering, searching for, and removing information as necessary.


Zuyev has an understanding and education in mathematics up to and including algebra and trigonometry.

Medical (First Aid)

Already receiving the full training for applying pressure dressings, tourniquets, evaluating a casualty in the field, and performing a 7-line request for medical evacuation: Zuyev has received further training from the Star Army added on top of what he already learned in earlier years. He knows how to treat for various types of shock, deal with severe wounds in the field, and can even work as a doctor's assistant in a medical bay or sick lab.

Art (Painting and Carving)

A hobby taken up to pass time, Zuyev is artful and skilled with both painting (his preferred medium being finger-painting), and with a hammer and chisel against stone or a sharp blade against wood. As he is a hobbyist and not a professional, he doesn't consider himself to be a masterful expert, but he does take pride in what he does. Often for friends he has made them paintings or carvings either by request or of his own idea.


Growing up with six other siblings and two busy parents meant that in later years Zuyev found himself looking after his siblings and the house. He knows how to cook meals for a family, to clean and maintain a house, organize the bills, and other things necessary for home maintenance.
