Ashio Primary School, Ashio Agricultural Politecnicum - Dieron District Gymnasium, Special Training at Yorinaga Kurita Training Center
Hoshi Toranaga was born son of Yoshi and Haruka and heir to the Toranaga beef empire on Ashio. He is the eldest son of 4 brothers and one sister. At the age of 12 Hoshi discovered the family archives as part of a school project. Fascinated by his family heritage he found out that his great grandfather was a high ranking officer in the SLDF and it was only after the exodus that the remaining family settled on Ashio and became beef farmers. Reading more and more he found that his family was dating back to the 14th century where they served as Samurai and even founded a heritage of Shogun during the Edo Dynasty. This fire was burning inside of Hoshi as he became more and more fascinated with Bushido and the way of the Samurai, learning the art of Kendo and Aikido, his father finding this as "a phase" and not really seeing how Hoshi invested into becoming a warrior. Of course the final step would be becoming a Mechwarrior, when Hoshi proposed to his father they became entangled into a fierce argument. However with his excellent marks and good conditioning Hoshi was accepted at the Dieron District Gymnasium and went even without his fathers consent, breaking the family ties, while secretly conversing with his mother and sister that still supported him. It was not until his final graduation where he graduated magna cum laude as a Mechwarrior with honorable works in History, Tea ceremony and Takeda-Ryu, when his father appeared with his whole family for the presentaton of the graduates. Not saying a word about the past his father just took him into his arm and whispered "your ancestors are proud today and so am I". Hoshi then got transferred to the 36th Dieron Regulars, where he is taking his post on the frontline against the Clan Invaders and future adventures.
In the future you might hear his challenge - beware:

Descendent of the great Toranaga Clan, dating back to Shogun Yoshi Toranaga of the great Edo Dynasty. Yondan in Morihei Ueshiba Aikido. Nidan in Takeda-Ryu, Samurai and Mechwarrior.
