Lieutenant Ken Kudo
Name Ken Kudo
Position Chief Engineering Officer
|Physical Description||Peak Human Condition: Ken is a man who keeps himself in great shape and maintains a strict level of training. His strength, durability, speed, agility, stamina, and reflexes are in top conditioning for a man of his age.|
Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Due to his harsh background and being rigorously trained for his childhood and adulthood as a true Samurai descendent by the Kudo family and his career in Starfleet, Ken could be described as a very serious and stoic individual who rarely speaks more than is necessary (preferring actions over words and being described as someone who never wastes words) with a strong sense of obligation. As a professional and a Starfleet officer, Ken is highly confident in his abilities and reputation, being greatly respected by those who have served with him. Despite this, he has a strong moral code as well as honor which is unique among his colleagues according to classmates as Ken never willingly drags innocent people into his job or threatens them during it. In spite of his professionalism, he is also friendly and develops strong friendships with many.|
|Strengths & Weaknesses||However, Ken is a man who is worth his reputation as a miracle worker for his ingenuity as he never fails to get machinery and equipment running again. Despite his calm and collected behavior, once he is angered or taken by vengeance, Ken will stop at nothing until he visits retribution back onto those who have wronged him.
Despite his skills, Ken prefers to avoid fights if he can. He is skilled at getting people to back down without resistance and will often let people go when they do, and he is able to avoid allowing conflicts to escalate any further. His friendly and professional personality allows him to maintain contacts within the Intelligence and Strategic Operations communities who are willing to come to his aid when needed. His strong sense of honor also means he makes a point of not allowing innocent people to get caught in the crossfire of his duties.
Master Martial Artist: Ken is an incredibly skilled martial artist and hand to hand fighter. His fighting style consists of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Jiu-Jistu, Sambo, Aikido and Krav Maga. He can quickly outmaneuver, outmatch or simply outlast his opponents, even being capable of taking on multiple enemies at once. Ken is able to adapt to his opponent's fighting styles, studying them during the fight and adapting to negate their strengths. He also frequently makes use of dirty tactics such as striking the groin, gouging the eyes or even biting.
Knife Mastery: Through his training both as a child and in Starfleet, Ken is highly skilled in the use of knives and other melee weapons. He is also shown to be proficient in the use of swords, especially his Katana and matching blades. He is also able to throw knives and other bladed weapons with expert precision and lethal force.
Stealth Mastery: Ken is extremely skilled at breaking into secure locations and escaping without being noticed and he is able to memorize complicated architectural layouts easily. Again, this is due to sacred family teachings.
Master Marksman: Being both a trained tactical officer as well as being a Starfleet officer and war veteran, it is safe to say that Ken knows his way around a variety of pistols, rifles, and various other firearms, as well as being able to precisely eliminate targets from a long distance. Ken is able to effortlessly blend his marksmanship with his hand to hand skills, being able to swiftly use grappling moves combined with precision shots to take on large groups of organized opponents. He can accurately and precisely gun down multiple enemies in a timely manner, almost never missing his opponents. He is also skilled in throwing projectiles like knives and even tomahawks with deadly accuracy and force.
