INNEN KURU served as a Chief Technician on the YSS Yui and then the YSS Ketsurui Chiharu. She originally died during the notorious battle over Ralfaris that destroyed the YSS Ketsurui Chiharu in YE 25 but was brought back with an old ST back-up by Taisho Ketsurui Yui that same year. She is still quietly serving the Star Army of Yamatai aboard the YSS Storm.
Kuru's work is her life and doesn't have much interest in anything else. She is incredibly serious and abrasive; and as a result, she doesn't have much of a social life outside of work. She hates men and will only mildly tolerate them when she must. This said, she doesn't seem to mind those of asexual species that have a masculine persona or appearance. As a supervisor, she has learned to treat all her subordinates with a certain level of begrudging trust, though she tends to treat her male crew with less patience unless they have proven themselves to her.
Likes - Working, women, spicy food.
Dislikes - Men, sweets.
Kuru's body has the usual distinguishing characteristics of an NH-29 Series Nekovalkyrja with the old NH-7 Nekovalkyrja coloration patterns for her eyes and hair. Her hair is bright green and worn shoulder length with a sprinkling of beaded braids and 2 chin length bangs that are separated from the rest of her hair by a white headband. She has the typical slender build of a neko and a warm brown skin tone with dark blue eyes. She wears the typical Star Army of Yamatai bodysuit uniform.
Kuru was an NPC played by Kim during her time as a Game Master. She is currently an inactive NPC but any Game Master is welcome to use her if they so desire. She was 1 of 2 NPC personnel (the other being the ship's communications officer, Mitsurui Aya) from the YSS Ketsurui Chiharu that were restored from an ST back-up by Ketsurui Yui.
Kuru was initially created by PNUgen/Wicked Arms in YE 15 and put into technical training order to be able to repair anything from a knife to a starship. Her dislike for men has some connection to another neko she was attached to that was somehow hurt by a man they both trusted, it is unknown if the neko in question was physically or emotionally hurt by this man.
She has served as a Chief Engineer on the YSS Now and Forever ; YSS Yui and YSS Ketsurui Chiharu. In YE 25, she was killed when the YSS Ketsurui Chiharu was destroyed over Ralfaris by the Elysians and was then recovered from an old ST back-up by Ketsurui Yui later that year along with Aya. Since then, she has been diligently continuing to serve the Star Army of Yamatai as gratitude to Ketsurui Yui for giving her a second chance at life.
In YE 31, she gave birth to a daughter, Innen Tsukiko aboard the YSS Storm.
