Yoshiro Tanaka


Family (or Creators)

Kai Tanaka(Father, deceased), Maya Tanaka(Mother), Sho Tanaka(Younger brother), Aoi Tanaka(Younger sister)


He was born into a working class family on Yamatai and has worked most of his life supporting his father's business. He helped deliver food and other things from his father's shop. When he was heading toward his teen years, he started rebelling against his parents.

He knew, or at least he thought he knew about life and what he was going to do. He did things that he knew were wrong such as pickpocketing and assaulting people. He gained a new outlook on life when his brother and sister were born when he turned 13. He helped his mother care of them until they were 4 and he was 17.

When he turned 17, he went back to work for his father and helped him when he needed it. They hung out together after work and got to know each other and as time went by they were practically inseparable. He was starting to get restless again so he decided to seek out another job opportunity. He went to various places to seek new employment but they all said that he needed experience. He went to look at some flyers for the Star Army of Yamatai and decided to sign up on his eighteenth birthday.

When he announced his intentions to join the SAoY when he turned eighteen there was a big argument. He ran out with the intention of joining without his parent's blessing but when a cooler head prevailed over his stupidity of running away, he decided to talk to his parents.

He told them, since he was getting bored with his life in the working class he was going to join the military. He told them that he wasn't using this as rebellion as he would have done before, but to finally make a better life for himself. His parents tried to convince him otherwise but finally they relented. He signed up and is now waiting to see what the future will bring him.

Fort Ready

After joining the SAoY he was sent to basic training at Fort Ready. After arriving at the Fort and late at that he learned the basics of being a soldier. As he went through the training he learned how to shoot a sniper rifle on his first day there. He was told that he had shot a pretty good group for his first try and he was happy. With a little lesson in CQB the day was over.

The next day they were talking about medical and learned about 7 line request, what factors need to be told in a 7 line request and what triage is and what is done during triage. After the lesson on basic medical treatment, the lesson moved on to POWs and how to deal with them. He learned various things and then went on to his first combat simulation on board the Henry Chen class training ship YSS Academy.

He did not fare well with the combat simulation and was eliminated by an enemy mech and destroyed. When the first combat simulation ended the second one began. The second simulation was repelling boarding parties. The first moments with the simulation were quiet and uneventful but when they got to the vehicle bay three enemy Nekos were preparing to destroy the ship with a EMP bomb.

Yoshiro managed to stop the Neko from getting the bomb to a Type 30 Tankette but failed to realized the power of the bomb. The team managed to distract the Type 30 Tankette while he placed the bomb. The bomb exploded and took out the electronics of the entire ship and ended the second simulation in failure. Despite the pending graduation Yoshiro was left with a feeling of guilt at the failure of the mission.

Kyoten Station

After the graduation he asked for and recieved orders to the YSS Aeon. He was taken to the Kyoten, where the Aeon was undergoing repair and resupply. He met Saki there as they were both going to the Aeon. After introducing himself to Dang Mei he settled in to await his interview. After reconciling with Saki and working with Ogawa Daisuke, he had his interview with Ise-Taisa and was given a posting with the infantry.

First Mission

His first mission was to rescue some former UOC citizen that were trapped by the NMX. During the mission he engaged his first live targets. He also helped some NMX nekos that had surrendered to them after an argument with Oshiro-Juni. During the rescue Oshiro-Juni was wounded severely and he rescued himm during which a Ripper attacked.

Second Mission [Sword Flash in Darkness-Dinner Briefing]

Yoshiro's next mission was to attend a dinner briefing for their next mission. He spoke with the new Chusa about the life of a samurai and the death of his father and how he felt about it to get a perspective on it besides his own.

Third Mission [Sword Flash In Darkness-Unsheathed]

Yoshiro's mission with the infantry team was to hit the ground and liberate a prison complex at Higaflan.
