Since joining SAINT, he has become a lot more confident and outgoing.

Family (or Creators)

Katsuragi Yuina- Mom Jackson, David- Dad


Suzaku was born between a geshrin woman and a nepleslian soldier some 20 years ago, his father leaving shortly afterward. He'd spend his life after that point living with his mom when she transferred from station to station due the fact she was in the military at the time. Suzaku would learn to care for, rebuild, repair and generally maintain mechanical equipment and mecha from her considering she too was a technician. Life wasn't easy for just a kid and his mom, but eventually he too would grow up and join the military, having practically lived that life the entire time after mom retired. He joined when he was 16 and worked his way through basic training then a kind of voluntary extended training for technicians through the Kyoto War College when he could. But when the Species Restriction Act went into effect he was forced to “upgrade” into a yamataian body, which he did while keeping his exact appearance from his original form.

He served on a nondescript salvage vessel for a couple years during and after that point, gaining the rank of Nito Hei in the process. But recently that ship was taken to the Ketsurui Sanctuary and he was left waiting for a new assignment, while on leave he would work on improving his skills in areas outside of engineering, including taking a course in how to pilot shuttles, figuring it would be useful as he didn't know how to do it before that point.

YSS Senbu

Following his time on the Senbu, Suzaku was chosen to receive some specialized SAINT training, which he gladly accepted for the excitement and change of pace it brought from his previous duties. Though his spy assignment he was mentally prepped for fell through, he still feels he is ready for a little more danger in his life, putting his newfound skills and technical aptitude to the test in a variety of scenarios.

YSS Sakishima Plot

Due to the rash of strange incidents involving terrorists in the Tenth Fleet ranks, he was one of several operatives secretly assigned to various ship posts to keep an eye on things. Thanks to his background, he landed the job of being the Sakishima's resident engineer and armorer.


Suzaku has the following notable skills:

  • Maintenance & Repair: He has received indepth training into the care and maintenance of nearly every existing power armor on Yamatai and older Nepleslian armors. Suzaku is fully capable of making nearly any form of repair to that equipment as well as capable of repairing starship systems as well, but his speciality is armor.
  • Engineering: Suzaku learned this skill during his childhood from his mother and various tutors throughout his life, he is proficient in making small mech designs as well as weaponry. He is capable of building add-ons and modifications to Yamataian (and other) power armors if allowed time and resources.
  • Vehicle Piloting: Suzaku learned how to drive civilian and military vehicles during a planetside temporary assignment, as well as learning from living on planet for a year and a half shortly after the SRA. He can also pilot shuttles with a measurable degree of success, he's not a pro but he's not an amatuer at it either.
