Kino was a typical sporty kid growing up during his school years he played baseball and made nationals every year he played. When he graduated High school instead of going to college Kino decided to accept a recruitment offer into the JSDF where he was trained in urban combat and given college level classes in engineering at the same time. Once he graduated his engineering course and had done 3 year in the general stationed JSDF he became a combat engineer in the Special Response Forces where he was trained by his squad in all sorts of situations. During his time in the JSDF-SRF his squad was sent overseas bound for Europe for a special joint training operation however on the way there their plane was grounded in Russia due to a global emergency in an attempt to help out his Squad headed south towards Chernarus where the Emergency originated from. While assisting locals in the early days of the outbreak most of his squad was killed either by infected or by other people trying to steal their equipment. Now two years into the infection only Kino remains in Chernarus doing whatever he can to help others but also profit for his own survival.
