3331: Space Oddity
Maj Ikamura Gin "The Reaper"
Shoot first, ask questions later.
Ikamura Gin was born on the red planet known as Mars. He and his sister were born in 3313, their mother Mika passed away due to complications of childbirth. Their father is President Ikamura Atsushi the current head of Hallen Industries Incorporated, the leader in Terran mecha innovation. Gin’s sister, Ikamura Hoshi, was born with problems of her own. Because of her weakened state she was placed into the Valkyrie Profile program by her father. Neither Atsushi or Gin have heard any word as to what happened to Hoshi since. Gin was raised in a military environment. At the age of 8 it was discovered that he had a natural penchant for piloting mecha when he climbed into a simulator and completed the combat test flawlessly with no prior training. From that point on he was the prime test pilot for any new mecha that Hallen devised. His father enlisted him in the military to fight against the Xeretes in the Great Galactic Conflict. He was allowed to fight before coming of age because of his father’s influence. He proved his worth during the war by piloting an, at the time, prototype version of GX-21-3 Gatling Gear and defending a crucial outpost on Pluto. Since then he has been part of a troop of bounty hunters known as the Black Tortoises, hunting down militants, rogue traders, and other sundry characters.
