“We did our duties. We colonized worlds.” a voice came from the direction of the door. Ieyasu Taro had long since retired from the Star Army. The veteran Yamataian unzipped his jacket and tossed it towards one of the chairs. “We were damn good at it too.” - 7th Fleet- The Plum Princess


Taro began his life as a NH-22C Yamataian, cloned by the Star Army of Yamatai to fill administrative service shortages in YE 20. Serving in the Star Army of Yamatai, he climbed the ranks to Shôshô very quickly, and followed Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko through her commands until she became Empress in YE 30. When many officers in the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet went to the United Outer Colonies, he remained in the Yamatai Star Empire and loyal to Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko. Taro retired in YE 31 after facing ridicule for his loyalties to Katsuko and the clan.

During his career in the Star Army of Yamatai he most notably commanded the Ayame-class Cruiser YSS Lorrheim in the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet. He was regarded as one of Katsuko's greatest military strategy advisors.

In YE 30 when the United Outer Colonies separated, Tange Haru attempted to sway Taro to commit treason and tried to hijack his ship. The situation was rectified because of the bravery of his First Officer who shot the Tange Clan member in the head with her NSP. The YSS Lorrhiem was able to return to Yamatai (Planet). 1)

Taro was the only male member of the original twelve that ran the Motoyoshi Clan, and played a paternal role to many of its members. Most notably, he is a friend of Motoyoshi Eri and , the former senator of the Taiie System. He is overprotective and a faithful friend. In his younger years, he had a reputation for being quiet but, in retirement, he has developed a very vibrant sense of humor to cope with stress. Taro has a habit of driving Kotoku Sui mad by showing the flaws in the fortified exterior of her personality.

In YE 42, Taro became the guardian of Motoyoshi Eidan who is the son of Motoyoshi Tio. It was his decision that Motoyoshi Tio was unsuitable to be a parent to Eidan due to his treachery and involvement in the United Outer Colonies. Taro flexed his power within the clan, he demanded that Tio join the Star Army of Yamatai as a way to redeem himself in the Yamatai Star Empire. He spent a year, educating and raising Eidan on the ISS Shiori until the end of the Kuvexian War ended in YE 43. He then had Eidan sent to Tsubomi to attend school.

When Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko decided to retire from the Star Army of Yamatai, he was the first to know. He became actively involved in initiatives to tie up loose ends in the clan's business. He started an unofficial program with Kaieda Auda to eliminate Tange Clan terrorists that had previously escaped capture. He specifically had her target those who had committed acts of terrorism against the Yamatai Star Empire. During the same time, Taro took it on himself to meet and discuss clan business with Kage Yaichiro 2), to whom Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko and Motoyoshi Eri became engaged in early YE 43.

Ojisan Taro

Ojisan (叔父さん) Taro is considered an elder of the Motoyoshi Clan. He is a brother to Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko and he has a significant amount of influence and power inside the clan. He serves as an advocate for the younger generation and often focuses his wisdom and support on them. He is particularly fond of the daughters of Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko, and has given them all flower-related nicknames.

“Well, now, if it isn’t the greatest Mother in the whole Sector, and my Uncle the leader of the greatest family” - Motoyoshi-Igarashi Yue @Victory Day YE 433).

As of YE 43 it has become very obvious that Taro's leadership in the clan is very much a real thing, especially as the clan has been growing and becoming more influential in the Yamatai Star Empire.
