Takashi Kurita couldn't wait to get out into the Inner Sphere and start his rule. He was a premature baby, born in 2970 on the planet of Kagoshima. He was the son of Hohiro Kurita I and immediately became the Heir Apparent. His mother's name is not listed. He received his military training at the Sun Zhang Mechwarrior Academy on New Samarkand.

Takashi was destined from greatness almost from the get-go as his early DCMS career included and assignment and a command in the elite Second Sword of Light, then located on Marlowe's Rift. After demonstrating how bad *** he was in all matters military, he was then promoted to the Otomo; the Palace Household Guard.

He then rose to become the Coordinator of the Draconis Combine when Hohiro was assassinated in 3004 by a member of his own bodyguard (also a member of the Tyr Resistance Movement). The assassin was executed immediately, which led to many speculations and rumours that perhaps Takashi had his father executed. Not being one to suffer rumours lightly Takashi instituted a series of brutal purges to quell any such rumours. I imagine this wasn't too difficult since the people were ready for a new ruler after having suffered under Hohiro's inept and cruel leadership for almost 40 years.

In 3024, in direct response to the FedCom Accords (and with the assistance of ComStar), Takashi brought together unlikely allies Maximilian Liao and Janos Marik to sign the Concord of Kapteyn. This was an agreement of mutual support against their common enemies, House Davion and House Steiner.

Over the next couple of decades Takashi led the Draconis Combine with an iron fist. He participated in many raids and battles which further expanded the territory of the Combine as well as elevated him to one of the great rulers of Draconis Combine and House Kurita.

Month-long celebration? Daviots probably had a month of sad days. :D

P.S: Mason, devs like all of us, except for the ones which say: "First!", or any version of it.
Doing something like that may strip you off your moderator status.

Takashi Kurita is the current ruler (known as the Coordinator) of the Draconis Combine. In 3004, his father Hohiro Kurita was assassinated by one of his own bodyguards, a member of the Tyr Resistance Movement from the Rasalhague Military District. Takashi had the assassin executed immediately, an act that led to rumors that he was culpable in the murder. These rumors were quickly put down in a series of brutal purges. Takashi inherited a realm that had suffered for over forty years from his father's cruel and inept rule.

Much sake was consumed, and many Davion heads were bashed during the recreational hunting trips.

I want to make it clear I will strip Mason of all status for saying 'firsties.' I will also devour the firstborn of anyone who says 'rediculous', and nuke the entire planet the next time someone says 'irregardless' or 'alot'.

And woe betide anyone caught spelling things like 'color'.

I went to the libary expescially to check if I was rite about how to spell "rediculous". Its totally rite! It excapes me how you could think otherwise. Shure, I may not be perfect at spelling and gramar. Despite you're protestations, you cannot police gramar this way!! Have you know honor!?

Edit: Dang it Park, you beat me! :D
