character: color refined rendition of AGU recurring hero Yoritoki Morri
Yoritoki Morri, son of a Japanese Self-Defense Force pilot and astronaut and Miliko Tsumara's
classmate since junior high, was extorted by Miliko to join her "Alien Encounters" club. For the first few days he was forced to talk menial tasks to maintain the club and was bored at its' non-active activities. One day, Yoritoki accompanied Miliko in a school field trip to Akihabara District in Tokyo where Miliko decided to spare some lose change on several video arcades. The couple spotted a new game called "Starchaser" and Yoritoki was shocked at Miliko's near-flawless scoring on the arcade without even adding another credit to continue the game. He was soon further embarrassed with Miliko preemptively celebrated at her beating the game, forcing him to escort her back to the motel that their class was staying. Days later, Yoritoki was overseeing the daily routines at the clubroom when he was again shocked at Miliko, this time when she entered the room wearing nothing but in a skimpy leotard. Yoritoki thought it was another prank by Miliko to recruit more members into the club, but the reluctant blue-haired teen once again extorted him and their fellow club members, to join the rogue Galactic Naval unit Starchasers, in hopes of furthering the popularity of the club. With nothing but a student pilot's license and having an astronaut for a father, Yoritoki joined the unit not realizing he and the club members were recruited to defend Earth from all alien incursions, as well as having many more headaches in being Miliko's errand boy in promoting their after school club.
Like fellow club member Toshie Nakao
, Yoritoki is another one of the club's members to be overly frustrated with Miliko's attics and bossy attitude. Since he knows her from back in Junior High, he is to be her caretaker as well as her voice of reason whenever her shenanigans run amok. Despite being a slight antagonistic towards Miliko on a number of subjects, Yoritoki is otherwise friendly and courteous to the other members of the club. He also is somehow has a hidden romantic interest with alien club member Yori Tomori
, especially when even Yori herself did not notice, but he keeps it to himself since it could create jealous fibs on Miliko. Having being course to be Miliko's work slave, Yoritoki works hard to make some she does not get into any serious trouble. His favorite hobby is basketball. His favorite food are fried soba noodles.
Unlike his fellow human club mates, Yoritoki has training in piloting rotary wing aircraft and helicopters and is a license pilot and operator for said vehicles, which his useful for his piloting Starchaser-issue atmospheric (non-space) fighter aircraft. He is schooled in Earth science, mathematics and geography. His powered pilot suit, unlike the suits from his female counterparts, are more slightly less functional in features like male Starchaser pilots do not need additional defense capabilities to survive in combat situations like female pilots. His suit still retains to ability to generate several hi-tech weapons including her phased plasma pistol with optional stun settings, a long steel-bladed sword for melee combat and a proton missile launcher. His exclusive suit feature (to male pilots) is a star-shaped belt activator that produce environmental camouflage (including woodland, desert, arctic, and urban patterns). He flies the Sky Eagle atmospheric assault craft armed with front-mounted repulsor cannons, laser-guide air-to-ground munitions and air-to-air missiles.Influence/inspiration:
