Physical Description/Distinguishing Features: Standing at a few inches shorter then six feet tall, Yuu Takeo stands out in the crowd of average faces.  His good looks and his solid tan aren't exactly common in a military environment, in fact many wonder why he didn't shoot for a modeling career or something similar.  His body has an athletic build to this thanks to the time he spent playing sports and the hard work he put towards getting through basic.  Yuu's hair is a light-brown color that is often-times messy, though it falls into place naturally so he doesn't have to mess with it; Yuu quite comfortable with the way his hair is.  The most distinguishing features to note are the silver earrings that he wears and the long scar in his left palm.

Disposition/Personality: Calm and easy on the eyes with a voice that you just yearn to hear more out of.  Yuu has a natural charisma to him that makes him a born leader.  A quick calm smile is often put out to relax any tense situations since Yuu doesn't care for people stressing out over things and wasting energy.  He's devoted to his friends with a strong loyalty and conviction, becoming Yuu's friend means that Yuu will always watch your back and be ready to help you when you need it.  There's something to him almost like his smile sometimes is a little forced, like he doesn't want people to be worried about him since he is keen with helping others.

Background
Not all families are picture-prefect.  At first glance you thought the Takeo family was.  A pair of young parents both with steady jobs, living in a quiet suburb and they had just had their first child.  With humanity working on the new technologies that they had found in the alien-ship and doing extensive studies of what secrets it had to offer, jobs were on the rise.  Many people were working all over the world on what was discovered at 'Macross City'.  Yuu was living a normal and a quiet life he had friends, and went to school a hard-study his parents both having high-expectations for their first son.

War is a funny thing though.  When the Zentraedi attacked Earth, his father just snapped.  Not just any normal snap he officially went nuts.  His father killed his own mother in cold-blood, and was incarcerated by the police after a three-day man-hunt looking for him.  Yuu wasn't aware of the death of his mother and what his father did for two days having stayed over at a friend's house for the weekend.  Yuu...didn't know what to think of it.  He was shocked, he was horrified.  He was sickened at the loss of his own mother and how his father could do such a cruel thing.

Yuu became a ward of the state, and went through the system that was a tad overwhelmed with what had happened during the events of the first Space War.  Still Yuu applied himself at his schoolwork, he worked hard trying to keep himself distracted.  He delved deep into his schoolwork and developed a key friendship...it was with a friend who had a dream.  He showed Yuu that dream, and Yuu saw what he really wanted.  Even as a pair of VF-1s roared overhead the two friends watching, both knew what they wanted to be.  They wanted to be pilots.  They wanted to help others.

Javier and Yuu both applied after finishing up High School and was accepted into the U.N.S. and slowly worked there way through the tough classes, through the harsh training requirements to be fit to be pilots.  Yuu at one point was about to give up...but it was like a mental slap seeing someone quit.  Seeing the shame that they had in quitting...the regret after leaving.  Yuu didn't ever want to live with that.  He was spurred with a fire his training officer never saw before.  Yuu Takeo working harder then all the other cadets, putting in those extra hours to get the work done right.  Sure he missed vacations and breaks but he worked.  He didn't break under the stress the academy put on the pilots.  He went through basic, went through flight school and when all was said and done, Yuu graduated top of his class.

Yuu would serve two tours of duty performing valiantly in them and showing a deep dedication and loyalty to those around them.  He has earned three noticeable awards during his service and has achieved a modest number of kills.  Yuu however is only human and did get in a little trouble during shore leave at one point, he has otherwise kept his nose clean.  

The Thundercats were a patrol squadron back on Earth they were sent to some of the roughest and toughest parts of Earth clearing out Anti-UN and Renegade Zentraedi elements that have been giving the locals trouble.  The Thundercats given their status as an experienced unit was constantly in the thick of things and Yuu raked up more kills in that year then he did in his two-year stint with the Imperials.  Many superiors suspect if he had stayed on a bit longer he would have hit Ace Status.

It was during one shore leave while serving with the Thundercats that he met someone.  Ina Khan.  She was working to be a bridge-bunny and was a cute and witty girl.  She was spirited and Yuu encountered someone who just...made him feel something different.  He couldn't explain why the shallow and finnicky girl appealed to him still he spent time with her while on his leaves.  Before he even realized it he and her were dating and he didn't realize how deep in he was with Ina...and of course he didn't realize one thing.

Ina was going to go after him.

Love is crazy like that ain't it?

Yuu recently was transferred out of the Thundercats to the SVA-364 Purple Foxes what happens there remains to be seen.

Hmmm... I must say that I like the character. He's well-rounded and I'm glad that JJ's character now has a boyfriend. I would only ask you to add a bit more of ground-pounding training and experience to the sheet and stats since they won't be inside a cockpit at all times, my friend.  :D

Pending the requested skillset changes/additions, this character has received a provisional GM Seal of Approval.
