Rank: Jôtô Heisho

Physical Description

Matsuvo is is a lanky 5'11“ (180 cm) male with pale/tan skin, hazel eyes and inexplicably white hair. He has a lithe, swimmer-like build but, as one would expect of a minkan, is quite strong. He is athletic and has defined muscles, however, they are not overstated. His face is angular and has an unplaceable sense of exoticness. He has Elf-esqe ears.


On initially joining the Star Army, Matsuvo was outgoing socially and eager to please. However, despite his outgoing personality, Mat was basically inept at socializing, as his difficulties earlier in life had led to a lack of experience in socializing with peers. Over the course of his service with the crew of the YSS Kaiyō and YSS Kaiyō II, Matsuvo forged bonds and matured as he grew more professional.

After being assigned to Elysia with his girlfriend, Mat picked up a knack for gardening. He enjoys planting and caring for plants and flowers.

After years of service, Matsuvo's initially energetic demeanor has shifted sightly into a slightly more serious and subdued one. Enthusiasm and a desire for camaraderie tempered by the experiences of war and of loss. Though he is still the same man he was years prior, he is often more reluctant to form deeper connections with his peers in the military after seeing so many die permanently in the Kuvexian War.

Likes: Athletics, cooking, gardening.

Dislikes: Paperwork, olives.

Fears: Growing close to someone he will lose


Shinomori Matsuvo was born in YE 19.

Matsuvo's parents met in the star army in YE 19. They fell in love almost immediately. Mat was conceived, and his parents left the military for a civilian life in Kyoto. Growing up, Mat's home and family life was idyllic, and his parents told him tales of the adventures that they had had in the star army, how they had met, and encouraged him to meet new people. While he did this, he made few friends, and those were lost over time. However, he never gave up his outgoing stance on life.

After his primary education, Mat was rudderless, and stayed in his parents home until age 20, at which point, filled with his parents tales, Mat set out to join the star army as an infantryman, hoping to make lasting friendships, or, as his parents had happen to them, something more.

Over the course of his career aboard the YSS Kaiyō and its successor the YSS Kaiyō II, Matsuvo was not as often mentioned in reports as much as his peers or his lover, Meissa Nashira, however his service was filled with displays of bravery, ingenuity and combat prowess in the field befitting of a Star Army soldier. One notable incident, among the many adventures of the Kaiyō, was his actions taken during the defence of the ship against Mishhuvurthyar boarders during 3月 YE 39. Having failed to make it to the ship's Power Armor bay before the enemy breached it, Matsuvo equipped himself with several Traditional Flak Vest and heavy infantry weaponry and helped retake the Power Armor bay, though dying in the process when shot in the head by an Reaper Power Armor.

After some time of service, Matsuvo was stationed on Elysia with Meissa Nashira. During his time on Elysia, Matsuvo mainly spent time with Meissa, and picked up some new hobbies, such as cultivating flowers and other plants. Soon though, this peaceful life was interrupted when he was called to serve on the YSS Eucharis.

His time on the Eucharis was interesting, and the highlight of this service was when he ended up taking temporary command of the Eucharis' Power Armor team during Operation Breakwall and leading the assault on the flagship of the invasion fleet. The capture of that ship led to the routing of the invasion fleet, and the invasion of the Ketsurui Military Sector halting briefly.

After the mysterious final mission of the YSS Eucharis, the circumstances of which are not fully understood to this day, and its subsequent retirement from standard combat duties, Matsuvo was transferred to a desk job on the YSS Nishitama, until it was attacked. Matsuvo assisted in the city's defense, holding out with Yamatai National Police equipment until he was able to gain access to his standard SAOY gear and join up with other defenders.

In the aftermath of this event Matsuvo was transferred back to combat duties, was awarded the Red Tessen for his actions along side other responders, and is assisting with training duties while awaiting assignment at Fort Minori Reserve Center.
