Personal History Always loved the stars since he first laid eyes on the sky and once he saw how Starfleet worked, there was nothing else he wanted to but move around space. Grew up in Japan as a boy due to his parents working there and did intensive travel around Asia, learning Chinese himself. Always admired different cultures.

What really interested him was strategic thinking when he first played chess with his father. This started his love for the subject and studied it as soon as he went into Starfleet. Becoming very well attuned in the subject, he decided to supplement the brain with the body when he started learning how to defend himself by studying various fighting styles such as Krav Maga as he figured he could use his naturally big frame to his advantage.

Naturally, a guy with his height and build, being a strategist who is well versed in hand-to-hand combat would certainly give him a heads up in Starfleet, which it did. He rose through the ranks very fast using his abilities and it helped that his good character didn't rub people the wrong way fast tracked his way to a commanding role.

He respects his superiors and his peers unconditionally and loves to talk with other officers on his off time sharing stories and picking the brain of how other officers would strategize different scenarios.

After his previous ship where he served as the XO was decommisioned after a fatal run-in with the Cardassians, he was asked by a friend in the admiralty of Starfleet Command for a favor; to be temporary mission advisor to the Calypso.
