Birth Country: Japan

Group Affiliation: ANGEL Corps
Base of Operations: The Synidome
Origins: Hoshi was born Katsu Akihito, the daughter of a Izo Akihito, a Japanese assassin working within a league of assassins, and his wife
Satomi. Katsu was 3 when wife Satomi found out what Izo did for a living. She secreted Katsu away and settled into a small remote village
where she successfully escaped Izo’s influence for a time. Four years later, Izo, in ninja assassin garb to hide his identity, located the pair
and assassinated Satomi, although she surprised him with her efforts to put up a defense. She had gotten some training in the village.
Katsu entered the room just as Izo finished strangling his wife. Katsu did not recognize her father, but did notice the torn clothing on his
back revealing the distinct head of a fiery dragon before he disappeared into the night. Izo appeared in the village the next day as her
father and whisked her back to Yokohama. Darkened by the death of her mother, Izo thought Katsu displayed potential for following his
footsteps as a lethal assassin and began training her in martial arts, ninja and samurai skills, and both conventional and obscure weaponry.
She was like a sponge, mastering discipline after discipline as Izo took his assassination league to a multi-million dollar enterprise. One
day when he felt she was ready, Izo informed Katsu that he had located her mother’s killer and, working with one of his best teams, sent
her on her first mission to assassinate the target, who was actually the financier of a rival assassin group. The financier’s handsome son,
Mitsuaki, walked in during the mission but Katsu was was convinced he was not affiliated with the deeds of his father. Katsu was also very
attracted to him and opted not to kill him. The mission was successful and Katsu felt her vengeance was satisfied, but she also found the
adrenalin pump of assassination intoxicating. At her father’s behest, she willingly completed hundreds of missions more, becoming the top
assassin in her father’s organization. Soon Katsu met Mitsuaki again and fell in love with him, but she could dare not let him know her
secrets. Izo objected to the romance but Katsu defied him. Enraged Izo sent his premiere hit squad to have Mitsuaki taken out and this
occurred during the event that would later become known as "The Neogen Flux." Katsu learned of the mission and intervened in order to
protect her lover, but he had already been informed that she had killed his father. Mitsuaki rejected her as assassins poured into the
building. Katsu was able to dispatch many of them but not before they murdered Mitsuaki, who dies in her arms forgiving her. Katsu
returned and confronted her father where he provoked a fight by backhanding her. The two fought madly until Katsu ripped Izo’s clothing
from his back revealing the fiery dragon head she remembered during her mother's murder, pinpointing her father as her mother’s killer.
Psychologically overwhelmed with the prospect of the lie of a life she has lived, she was thrown off-kilter and faltered under Izo’s
onslaught. Soon she was at his mercy and just as he was about to deliver a killing blow, her intense emotions of hatred and anger welled
up inside of her, manifesting into an expulsion of stellar energy that knocked him clear across the room. Regaining her cold composure,
she was unable to duplicate the blast but still managed to defeat Izo completely. Just as she was about to deliver a killing blow, his
assassin squad broke into the room. She held them off b y managing to fire off a few more stellar blasts and escaped. She vowed to end
her father’s evil but became aware of the UN efforts to examine "The Neogen Flux" phenomenon. With nothing else left in her life she
assembled a new identity as Miya Kobi and headed for New York. Once her ability to manipulate stellar energies was identified, she was
given the code name Hoshi which means “star” in Japanese.
