|I can see her in my head. This sort of plain, depressing looking skinny thing - not awkward. The kind of person who would be wearing glasses if she weren't a nekovalkyrja. Very prim, very proper, but very repressed and maybe even a little melancholy. Even the dark of her hair is not really a jet black - not a pearly, shiny black like you'd get with real unique nekovalkyrja. Just a sort of drab unlustered black, tipped in white. - Gallant|
Fujiwara Miu is a character played by Kokuten.
Theme(Normal): Jormungand - Ambivalentidea
Theme(Urgency): The Witcher 2 - The Path of a Kingslayer
Spirit of Yamatai: Black, genetic tattoo of a dragon that starts from the waist and then worms its way around her body three times, before curling under her left shoulder with its head nestled over the left breast. The dragon itself has the Hinomaru emblazoned on its forehead.
Spirit of Home: A smaller dragon than the Spirit of Yamatai that twirls around her left shoulder blade, and curls under her shoulder, up her side, with the head nestled on the right breast. The name of Miu's home-ship, the GSS Koichi is marked this dragon's forehead.
Spirits of Service: Even smaller Dragonlings which curl around the Spirit of Yamatai, with each marked with the names of every ship Miu has served on. These mostly situate about her back and abdomen.
Bar-code: Displayed proudly under her left eye.
With a forever frozen look of plainness on her face, Fujiwara Miu often appears without energy, or spirit. Though, to make this assumption would be a grievous error, because she's anything but. Miu is a workaholic, and approaches all her duties, even boring ones, with all the energy her body can give her. She likes to keep the appearance of a busy person, to inspire those around her to focus and complete their tasks as well. As such, she is very prideful of her work, and very prideful in herself and those that she commands, seeking perfection in all that she does.
In another light, Miu can be often viewed as a busy-body, passing up social time for the sake of getting work done. Her focus on discipline and professionalism is sometimes enough to off-put others who simply don't see it as important. Though, she is quite fine for handling the care of discipline and professionalism of other people for them. This reflects in her leadership style, where she directs people as efficiently as possible.
Fujiwara Miu was born of two NH-29 Series Nekovalkyrja in early YE 29, on the GSS Koichi. Her birth mother was Nitô Juni Fujiwara Ginga, and her contributing mother was Nitô Juni Inoue Katsuko. From that point, Miu began her life into service as Santô Hei Fujiwara Miu, and was mentored strictly under her birth mother as a youngling. Though her contributing mother, who was much less strict than her other mother, encouraged a certain playfulness common of Nekos in that age.
During her term of birthed service, Miu proved herself a competent and adequate soldier, participating in her first skirmish only four months after birth. Her aggressive style in combat earned her the respect of her peers, as well as her stalwart discipline. Before the Battle of Taiie, she earned the rank of Ittô Hei.
In later YE 29, the GSS Koichi was running patrols in the Taiie system before it came under attack by Melisson, and her SMX forces. As with the rest of the 5th Fleet present, the Koichi was sent to defend the planet of Taiie. Though, the ship, and its crew was quickly diverted to rescue efforts on the planet with the Star Exploder was deployed. The armor team that Miu was deployed on was sent to defend on planet civilians as they were loaded onto shuttles.
During the skirmishes planet-side, Miu's mother and wing leader, Inoue Katsuko, was killed by a Ripper in combat. Despite severe mental, and situational trauma, Miu was able to restore order in the squad and take the helm. She continued the fight as a leader, and eventually returned the squad to orbit, only to find the Koichi had been destroyed in combat. So, the shuttle itself was turned towards another system and was eventually picked up by the YSS Susumu.
Following the Battle of Taiie, Miu was promoted to Ittô Heisho for her admirable services in taking charge when the chain of command had been broken. From there, she served out a term of service on the YSS Susumu. She served as a Wing Commander, leading armor teams onto enemy ships for surgical strikes, and survey groups onto new planets for the imperialistic expansion. Most who served under her would describe her as a firm leader, with little tolerance for failure or foolish mistakes. She was, at times, hated, but most of the time respected.
In YE 31, Miu finished her term of service, and was released with the rank of Nitô Juni. She spent a short time as a civilian, provided a home by the Star Army and experiencing Yamatai for the first time. Her mother Fujiwara Ginga, now a Shoi, tracked her daughter down and met her for the first time since the Battle of Taiie. In that, Miu learned that the ship had been almost scuttled as soon as her squad had entered atmosphere. So whatever hopes she had of seeing her contributing mother were gone, which struck Miu hard.
Death was common in battle, but one could always rely on back-ups. Her mother had died after her back-up had been erased, and thus was gone forever. Miu meeting her birth mother once more gave hope of seeing Katsuko, but those hopes were quickly dashed. It made civilian life difficult, and hard to bear with, so, to escape it, she applied for admission to the Kyoto War College, and reinstatement.
Miu took the rank of Shoi Kohosei upon entering the Kyoto War College, and took to classes well. She graduated with high marks, and with the rank of Shoi.
In YE 32, Shoi Fujiwara Miu was placed in command of a small fighter wing on the border patrol ship, YSS Takahata to enforce the lines against the NMX forces. Once more, with her adamant working personality, she created an effective fighting force with a very strong enforcement of discipline and a no-nonsense attitude when it came to aspects of a mission. Miu's tenacity towards her position earned her the position of Taii, and reputation for being a very strict commander.
Following her Wing Command posting on the Takahata, she was given a bridge officer position on the light cruiser, YSS Mao. Here she found her true calling as a staff officer. Miu's stiff regard to military bureaucracy made her an excellent logistics officer.
In late YE 33, the YSS Mao was refueling and resupplying over Yamatai. When the Mishhu came into range on Yamatai, the YSS Mao was sent into low-orbit over Yamatai to provide support to ground forces. Miu lead the efforts to coordinate all of the armor teams combating NMX forces that had made it onto the ground. They were largely successful, but were cut short as a NMX torpedo tore into the bridge, killing everyone, including Fujiwara herself.
The ship was left on emergency systems, floating dead in orbit. Miu along with the rest of the Bridge Officers were revived in the Med-Bay, and abandoned the ships in powered armor to continue the fighting on the ground.
Following the Battle of Yamatai, Miu was promoted to the rank of Chusa, super-ceding her mother who was a Taii at the time. With several cruises, two major battles, and a wealth of combat knowledge under he belt, the five-year-old Neko was given a choice of assignments. There were several that consisted of chasing the NMX out of known space, but the unusual Neko made an unusual choice. Miu was tired of raw combat and war, the horrors of the Mishuu, and dying. She applied for a staff position in a small Task Force Fleet largely consisting of officers from the 2nd Draconian Fleet. Task Force Lantern.
Upon arrival YSS Motome, Fujiwara was given her first assignment to manage the fleet; most of the officers, including the Shosho, were on their last off-duty day. So, the Chusa had been in charge of assigning orders to the Ryuusei, having addressing them earlier that morning. This was before the incident in the Third International Relations Conference, where her superior had caused quite a commotion. Before taking time to apologize to the Premier of the time, and brief Ryuusei she also had to deal with a spy that had managed to evade detection until that very morning. This was compiled on top of many more duties and social fires that sprung upward throughout the day. Though being rather apt at handling chaotic situations, Miu was just a bit overwhelmed.
When the day had come to an end, she had managed to brief her Shosho's squad, and managed to mildly contain her strange antics. The Premier of Yamatai accepted her apology quickly, and that gave her time to interrogate her spy, and even argue for her life against her superior. However, even though Fujiwara did her best to speak for the spy's usefulness, she was forced to find herself to terminate her later that evening.
The next assignment to neutralize a minor IWL fleet had the Chusa sitting at Mission Control for Ryuusei. She spread herself between three squads, and directed them to the best of her ability, despite the strain it put on her. After her own mission, she retired to her suite, only to be interrupted by her noisome superior once more. This interruption, however annoying, was forgotten quickly as such when Morioka had awarded the Chusa with one of her own blades as a reward of her performance that day. Though a reward was more of a perception on Miu's end of it, she happily retreated back to her room, after dealing with another noisome display.
Miu is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other soldiers through headsets, starships, power armor, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. She's fluent in Nepleslian and much so Yamataian, and can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc.
Miu received hand-to-hand combat training, followed up with a rigorous training program. She is skilled and experienced in combat both in Yamatai-like conditions and in zero-gravity, with and without weapons. Weapons she is trained in include energy pistols, knives, and power armor. Years of extensive has only sharpened her skills and has made her familiar with a wide array of combat-based equipment.
Miu is capable of operating any computer system that uses the Kessaku OS, found on all Star Army starships. She is proficient in entering and/or searching for information.
Miu has received advance mathematics training, to including up to algebra and trigonometry.
For the year she was born, Miu has proven to be a capable leader. In combat, she's able to direct troops, give orders, and pass on orders down from the chain of command. She can recognize ambush points, potential failings in tactical strategy, and come up with quick solutions on the spot. Out of combat, she is an avid administrator of duties, and is able to coordinate large and groups to complete a common goal. As such, she is capable of recognizing the chain of command in the field and off, and adheres to superior orders with a strong sense of discipline.
Through studious endeavor, and from the fact living some of it, Miu is quite knowledgeable of YSE's history as an empire. She also familiar with the various laws of Yamatai and the regulations of the Yamataian Star Army.
Miu is a capable fighter pilot, having served a term of command over a fighter wing. She is familiar with Star Army fighter control layouts, and tactics involving fighters. With a few tools and a bit of time, she is capable of making minor repairs to most kinds of fighter craft.
