“That power of analysis has served this Empire well, yes. But this power of yours is one that the Empire will continue to need in the coming months, years — decades. The blend of willpower and critical thinking you possess, Miharu-san, is your greatest weapon. The citizens of this Empire are blessed that you use it for good.”
Unlike her sister Miharu Nimura, who excels with patience and expertise, Yuzuki seems a sort of elemental force of nature that moves because it must move that way. Impatient and pushy, Yuzuki often makes mistakes because of her stubbornness, and when Rolf Eastwood is concerned, she becomes downright insane. Although she is not a true 'berserker', she regularly indulges in violence and succumbs to her anger when confronted with problems beyond her kinning.
The rest of the Miharu Clan, along with her lover, seem to be the only things important to her; placing Yuzuki in a civilian environment usually ends poorly. Her protectiveness sometimes approaches paranoia and there are very few people or things that she truly places trust in. Her compassion for those close to her is endless, and she would readily die for any of them - sometimes, she seems almost too willing.
For all that, she is reasonably brilliant. When it comes to engineering systems, electronics, programming, and many other fields, Yuzuki is capable of surprising and astounding. She has a sharp mind, is a quick study, and can often grasp problems and concepts by relating them to mechanical and electrical engineering. In this she is a blessed child.
Ultimately, Yuzuki can be best known by her actions. Although she is clearly unqualified as a Black Spiral agent, she still chose to go with Yukari and to stand by her loved ones, even at the risk of her life. Even though she often doubts herself, she still finds the courage to carry on.
“For displaying extreme courage and valiance, at the risk of your own well being, beyond what their duty demands, when engaged in honorable combat with an enemy of the Yamatai Star Empire, I hereby award you, Miharu Yuzuki, the Order of the Blazing Sun.”
Miharu Yuzuki was born a sprite aboard the YSS Miharu in YE 30. She was the fifth sprite in succession, and the first dedicated engineer. She served aboard the vessel, through the hazy orbiting rings of Nataria, through endless light years of space, through its repeated combat action with EVE and Melisson that pushed the limits of the vessel and its crew, until its final destruction during the battle of Blue Rift, whereupon Yuzuki donned power armor and continued, with the rest of the Miharu clan, to fight - and kill - a full Mishhuvurthyar Brood Mother, saving the Fleet of the Lost from domination, and escaping on the YSS Miharu's sister vessel, the Hoshi.
Yuzuki has had the rare distinction of having seen her sisters fight and die, permenantly; she has been through fire and been forged, all unknowing, to steel. Although invited to Ralt along with the rest of her sisters, Yuzuki parted from them in order to pursue her own path on the planet of Yamatai in the city of Kyoto. After several months in career stasis she was drafted into the Black Spiral 44th Fireteam with many of her sisters, under command of Chusa Suzuka Yukari (Freeman).
She is a decorated war hero, and carries the Tadakaze, a katana created from the prow of the YSS Tadakaze, belonging to the now-defunct Divine Arrows Wing, who died to prevent the XSS Tiamat from destroying Yamatai.
Miharu Yuzuki was born on a ship as a ships sprite with a basic personality and a skillset tailored to shipborne engineering. She has progressed, of her own accord, into an extremely competent engineer, mechanic, and systems specialist - skills which serve her well in her job as a Black Spiral Combat Engineer.
Most notably, she is one of the few Nekovalkyrja to have encountered Mishhuvurthyar engineering, and she has had the unique opportunity of taking a large portion of classified material into herself, presumably for safekeeping. While a large portion of this information tends towards the former Miharu antagonist Melisson's operations, another almost equally large portion pertained to Mishhuvurthyar ship structures and anatomy. If this has affected Yuzuki in any averse way, she has yet to show any signs of corruption or insanity, but as she keeps her thoughts to herself a large portion of the time it is difficult to determine her mental state in regards to this information.
In combat, she is brash and fearless; what she loses in finesse, she makes up for in initiative and quick thinking. Primarily her skill resides in ballistics weaponry, which is general knowledge assisted by combat experience. As a Nekovalkyrja, she has access to a wide variety of unarmed combat maneuvers, but for the large part uses them with the same unrefined, untrained zeal, when she can use them at all.
Domestically she has no particular skill to speak of, although she has a distinct tendency of not accumulating many worldly goods, which in and of itself might be a type of domestic skill.
No civilian job skills apart from her engineering and combat experience exist, and she is generally unsuited to civilian life.
