One of her hobbies is drawing flowers and coloring them. She had attended one of the best art school when she was at a young age of 10. At that time she had won an award for the best drawing in a gallery. Her family supported her art and for graduation from the Art School her father still loved this part of her and sent her a book of cats so she can expand her drawings. Heiwa is very shy around everyone, but is willing to learn and change that. Heiwa and her cousin grew up near the beach, and would play on the beach everyday. After she graduated from the Art School, she stayed at home for two years, to spend time with her little cousin. Heiwa and her little cousin became really close friends, and very close cousins too. Heiwa never let her cousin into the ocean, she was still young and the dolphins didn't know her as well as they knew Heiwa., but Heiwa would dive deep into the ocean and bring up some amazing shells, and taught Tsuyoi how to make seashell necklaces. Heiwa and her cousin are very happy to live near an ocean. Then Heiwa's 16th birthday came, the day her dad promised to enroll her into the academy. Heiwa didn't want to leave her cousin, they had gotten so close. She knew her cousin was upset too. During her last day at home, she spent all day with her cousin. Doing crafts and other activties they loved to do. That night, she cooked a meal for her family. They all loved it. The next day was the hardest day in Heiwa's life. She didn't know when she would see her cousin again, and she hugged her real close, as she shared tears. The captain of the Academy walked up, shook Dr. Neko's hand and escorted Heiwa to the shuttle to the academy. After sitting down, she didn't take her eyes off the spot where Tsuyoi was standing, and waved until she couldn't see her family in the sky. She hopes to make friends at the academy and to get good grades. She keeps a kitten in her dorm as a way to relax if she is stressed and also as inspiration for her art. The Mission on the Dhoudi was a huge wake up call to Heiwa. The fear that her father was killed, pushed her to do her best until they got back. Over the next four years at the academy, she took many counceling courses and would get monthly calls from Lexington, and the captain was always encouraging her to do her best, and that in his eyes, she was still an Ensign, even though at the academy she was a cadet. She also learned how to defend herself in dangerous situations, and grew up as well. Realized that the world was not friendly as she saw it to be as a child, she had come to realize that friendliness is not always the answer, sometimes you have to fight. Heiwa would also weekly call her cousin. How happy this made her feel that her cousin wanted to also attend the Academy, She kept in contact with her family, and she knew that everything would be ok when she would be able to see them again. After her four years at the academy were completed, she attended some more advanced councelor courses for three years. She kept getting monthly calls from the captain and she stuck to the books, but never forgot the world around her. At her graduation from the Academy, what a surprise! The captain of the Lexington had arrived. And behind the captain, her parents, how relieved she was to find out that her father was not dead and that everything was ok again. After the ceremony, the captain smiled warmly at her, and shook her hand. As Heiwa was turning to get packed, Tsuyoi runs up to her and hugs her tightly. The embrace lasted for a while. Heiwa was happy to be able to hold her cousin close again, this feeling surgred thru her body, and she was smiling a smile that no one could take away. During the next couple of days, Heiwa spent this time in her dorm,, packing and making sure she has all the PADDs with paperwork that she needed to be administered back onto the Lexington. She decided to leave her cat on earth, it was getting old, and she didn't want to have to worry about it in space. She and her cousin took one last swim with the dolphins, before Heiwa had to meet up with the transport back to the Lexington. She was proud of herself that she became a good starfleet officer. After the war with the Peacekeeper and a very brave choice on her part, Heiwa was transfered to be Security officer and Tactical of the Lexington. Her determination to keep the enemies at bay and to also not let them get near the Captain showed to the Commander that Heiwa would make a great Security officer. Also during that war, after the Lexington B was destroyed, and they found themselves on the ship, Heiwa know that one of the people accompaning the captain would have to stay behind and fire at the enemies as they came. With that decision also showed that she knew about strategies and now she is proud to be able to wear her ensign pip because she is finally part of the Lexington crew, accepted by all members. After returning back from taking her twin sister to the Aldrin, Heiwa walks over to her console, as tactical officer, when Captain Styles walks up to her. The look in his eye told Heiwa that she was going to be given a new post on the ship. She wonders if she will ever be able to have one post for more than a month. Styles noticed how carefullly Heiwa had piloted the small ship to take her sister and how espertly she was able to redock the ship inside the Lexington. Heiwa is asked where did she get so good at piloting a ship. Heiwa answers that she used to pilot a small boat at home where she could go deeper into the ocean and have her adventures. Heiwa is handed the keys to the Lexington as new Helm officer. After her shift on Stadate 0708.05, the captain asked her if she was happy at Helm. Apparently she wasnt because she kept spacing out wile on duty. Then what the captain asked next took Heiwa by surpriise, he asked her what post she wanted to work at. Heiwa closes her eyes, thinking back to the first time she arrived, and her many new posts. She was a great security officver, but it did get boring to her, having to do rounds all the time, no action. Then she tried tactical, was a natural but just didnt feel connected with the post. Heiwa soon recieved orders to report to the Loth, as their new security officer. She didnt mind that, because in the past she has been Security before and she can always give her sciencetific ideas when needed.
