Background/History: The younger brother of an Earth naval campain, Susumu Kodai was the pilot who found a refugee from IScandar who offered Earth a way out of their deadly dilemma. Gamilus was bombarding the planet with radioactive meteor bom,bs, poisoning the surface. Iscandar had a Cosmo Cleaner device that would clean up a poisoned earth, but Earth needed to send a ship to pick it up. That ship was the Space Battleship Yamato, and Kodai joined her crew as chief com,bat operations officer. In addition to the ships' desperate mission, Kodai seeks the truth about his brother's death—for which he partially blames his current commander, Captain Okita.
Personality/Motivation: Kodai is a paradoxical character. He tends to be hotheaded, but his eagerness for action is tempered by a knowledge of its price. Thus he will respect his enemies, and frequently take an extra moment to salute a fallen foe. Nontheless, he hates Gamilus and what it has done to his world and family, and will never forget they are his enemies.
Quote: "It was brave of you to come alone, but I can't let you see the Yamato."
Powers/Tactics: Kodai is a peerless combat pilot and gunner, and is also a skilled gunfighter. He will try to put the maximum force in place to achieve the job he is attempting and no less. He is one of the few people who can effectively control a Wave Motion Gun, the deadliest ship-based weapon in the Universe. His one weakness is his hot-headedness; he will frequently go in fighting when retreat or careful observation would be wiser.
