Physical Description:

Kenzo is a striking individual with the almond shaped eyes of his father, but with the full black eyes of his mother. He is considered quite attractive on both the Human and Betazoid scale of attractiveness. Long black hair is always kept clean and shoulder length, usually tied back in the traditional Japanese style. His build is athletic and fit, much of which is due to his regular regime of exercise and training.
Kenzo’s body is heavily tattooed in the traditional style of the Japanese. The only places not tattooed are his lower legs, half-way down his calf to his feet, his forearms from halfway between wrist and elbow down to his fingers, and the middle third of his chest up to his neck and head. The rest is covered with traditonal Japanese figures and symbols.

Psychological Profile:

He is adept at mediation and self-reflection, and utilizes these tools on a regular basis. Subject has a strong ability as an empath, and supports this tool with a deep understanding of sentient psychology and the ability to read body language that is truly astonishing.


Born to the Federation Colony Administrator of Norvella and a Betazoid diplomat, Kenzo enjoyed a privileged life as a child. His parents spared nothing in his education; and his extended family, both human and Betazoid, provided him with countless opportunities for personal growth.

A gifted student in many arenas, Kenzo was also blessed with a strong ability as an empath. His mother helped develop and train him in the use of this gift. For his father’s part, he instilled a strong sense of duty to others and tradition - both Japanese and Betazoid. It was this combination that sent Kenzo on his career path to want to understand others so that he could help them.

Arriving at Kyoto in Japan, Kenzo was slated to study psychology. But a chance elective brought him into the field of Civil Engineering. Deciding to pursue a dual major; Kenzo graduated with honors and was set to begin what should have been a stellar career.

And then the Federation treaty with the Cardassians came into play.

Norvella was one of the colonies left to the Cardassians. When the offer of relocation came, the Norvellians refused. The colony was successful and flourishing, and they had been there for over four generations. Kenzo returned home, and soon found himself in the position of Chief Negotiator between the colonists and the Cardassians. Kenzo was respected by both sides, and for a almost two years the colonists and the Cardassians actually managed to remain relatively cooperative. But a new Cardassian commander arrived soon after the discovery of a sizable deposit of deuterium, and things changed swiftly and terribly.

The new commander was relentless and hostile. Not even Kenzo could keep the peace. His mother was called back to Betazed but the Cardassians didn’t allow the family to go with her keeping them as potential bargaining chips for the future. Not long after, his father was imprisoned and a warrant for Kenzo’s arrest was issued. Fleeing the city, Kenzo took shelter with refugees and escapees, and soon found himself in the company of the Maquis.

Kenzo abhorred the thought of fighting, but with his colony and his father on the line, he put his knowledge and skills to work for the Maquis. He became a gifted surveillance asset, as well as a interrogator. He helped devise plans for sabotaging infrastructure, hitting the Cardassian supply lines and critical assets with a knowledge born of high-level education and desire to help the oppressed.

Kenzo was a target for assassination several times, and the Cardassian Obsidian Order had a sizable bounty on his head. But it wasn’t them who got to Kenzo first… it was Starfleet.

Rounded up in a trap set for the Maquis, Kenzo was sent back to Earth to stand trial. Fortunately for him, the Betazoid government stepped in. His mother, being a high ranking diplomat,made sure that Kenzo was kept out of court. The Federation also took into account that no Federation citizens had been harmed by Kenzo’s actions, and he was placed on supervised probation.

As he wasn’t allowed to leave Earth, he decided to pursue further education. Named a Rhodes Scholar, he attended Oxford University and earned a PhD in Political Science. Once his probation ended, Kenzo went to say with his mother, now the Betazed representative to Bajor. He continued his education while working as a civil engineer, and earned a degree in Interspecies Realtions with an emphasis in Crisis Management.

For several years, Kenzo was the Chief Federation Negotiator working to bring the disaffected colonies back into the fold. His time with the Maquis gave him a bit of credibility with those who viewed the Federation as the ones who abandoned them, and he was successful in minimizing resentments and old grudges.

His success earned him a new position: Governor of the domed city of OED V.
