Type: Pan Pacific Defense Corps Personnel Dossier
Mori was orphaned and Coyote Tango’s pilot, Stacker Pentecost, took an interest in her. Pentecost adopted Mori and saw her put through school. He is ambivalent about her choice to join the Jaeger program, acknowledging her mechanical and engineering skills but concerned that her psychological scars will destabilize any neural handshake she might enter.
Mori is emotionally invested in becoming a pilot—she wishes to avenge her parents and prove her worth due to the common assumption that she is favored by Pentecost. She feels burdened by these motivations, and frustrated because her only path toward redeeming herself is via a combat role in Gipsy Danger.
PPDC psychological staff suggest that while Pentecost may be correct about Mori’s emotional fragility, her skill set suits her to a Conn-Pod more than a repair bay. As always, however, psychological staff’s role in Jaeger assignments is advisory only.
