Home planet: Venus

Nicknamed for his odd stature and his general distaste for people, Joe Sujimoto was born and raised on Venus. He often quips that he’s only ever been off-world once, and it was for about 20 minutes while a flight had to go into low-atmo to avoid a storm front.

Joe became a part of the skiffing culture not long after the dust from the War settled down. Formerly a ground-to-air combat pilot for the UPC, once the Solid State Initiative took effect he gave up on the soldier’s life and instead opted to put his skill at flying to better use. Joe’s custom skiff, which he affectionately calls “Honeybun,” has done countless odd jobs across Venus and has a reputation all its own.

Joe has a hard time trusting people, but once people break down his walls he’s actually a genuinely warm and caring person. He would take a bullet for those he loves, but the number of the people in that category he can count on one hand.
