Yamamoto Kansuke grew up from an early age immersed in a life of science and technology. The youngest of three children, Kan's conception was more of an accident than anything else but one his parents gladly accepted. As the youngest he was often allowed to indulge in whatever activity amused him in his early years. Later, as he got a little older, his parents tried to steer his education to more productive ends. This proved harder than they first imagined due to their tight work schedules and Kan's natural tendency to be interested in everything all at once.

Kan's family has always been very close despite long periods of separations. With his mother off on assignments and his father always focusing on the next best design Kan was primarily being looked after by his older siblings. Even then he tended to embark on whatever wild stunt or idea he could come up with on his own. The age gap being to wide, his brother and sister's interests followed along other avenues. With a hunger for knowledge, any knowledge, that could nearly be considered border line psychotic Kan always had his head in a data unit or personal recording device. As he grew older that hunger changed and expanded into certain fields of interest. Math, Science, Physics, Construction and Experimentation became the refuge he sought in the spaces of his life left void in the wake of his families ambitions. While he had become comfortable with the situation that all changed on his twelfth birthday.

A few months before his birthday he had been experimenting with the modification of a portable power unit. He was seeking to enhance the output while at the same time increasing the life expectancy of the power cells. This wouldn't have been much of a problem except for the fact he decided to use a rather large generator to experiment on. At first everything was going according to schedule, all test showed positive, minimal fluctuations in the power matrix and sub-systems. Confident of his success he installed the unit into the home power network… with near devastating results. While no one was hurt the damage was extensive and severe. It was after this incident that his parents decided to finally take a firm grasp on his life.

While his parents were civilians they had more than a few contacts and friends in the Star Army. Sitting down with a few of these friends and discussing the issue they began planning with an efficiency that until that moment was reserved primarily for their work. It was decided right off that no special favors would be called upon for Kan. They would help steer him in the right direction of course, but everything he accomplished had to be done solely by himself. Before he knew it Kan had more attention than he knew what to do with. Tutors of various fields showed up at his home, a different one for every day of the week in fact, that were both strict and understanding. He learned all manner of things. Some things he already had a firm grasp of, but other things like self defense and eventually weapons, were completely new to him.

By his eighteenth birthday he was ready to begin his official training. Saying fair well to his family he soon found himself in basic training. Basic is a mind game, plain and simple. Its designed primarily to weed out the ones to weak to handle the rigors of military life. While there are certainly physical hardships involved in the training its a person's willingness to conform, to take orders without question and to have the mental fortitude to be able to carry out those orders that is primarily sought after. Kan had all of these assets, plus the intelligence and wit to be able to realize what was being sought after in a relatively short amount of time. After basic he it was up to him to decide what track he wanted his career to take. He finally settled on Starship Operations. He could easily have been and Engineer but being a starship operator would allow him to expand his knowledge base across the entire ship and wouldn't limit him to only Engineering.
