- Uesureyan Fortress
In downtown Kyoto, there was an ancient, charred castle that stood out amongst its more modern neighbors. Built of car-sized blocks of stone, the hulking structure had weathered the destruction of the city and of Geshinopolis and the witness the birth of Kyoto. Covered in heavy guns and parapets, it was the city's old citadel, the Uesureyan Fortress.
Located at the intersection of the gray, utilitarian buildings and spires of West Kyoto's military district, the fancy white marble walls of Kyoto's government center, and the seemingly endless gleaming skyscrapers of civilian East Kyoto, its giant brass-covered doors still had "ARMY OF UESUREYA" engraved above them. A newer, larger sign out front read "STAR ARMY OF YAMATAI - RECRUITING DEPOT - MILITARY DISTRICT OF KYOTO." Outside the doors were several poster encouraging Yamataians to "ENLIST TODAY!"
Stepping from his friend's car Yujin waved to him, "I'll give you a call if I need to be picked up. but if I am accepted, see you on my next shore leave." he smiled some. Turning to face the building. " oh hey I know this place, its the old Uesureyan fortress! Glad to see some of the old city from my childhood." He would smile some and move to walk into the door.
Inside the great building there was a security checkpoint and a reception desk manned by an old Nepleslian with a cybernetic arm, where each recruit could get a their ticket number for an intake interview where, if all went well, they'd be offered an enlistment contract to serve in the Star Army for three or more years.
Stopping at the checkpoint he put his wallet and small items where they asked if needed and then stepped on through. Gathering up his items after he was cleared, he made his way over toward the reception desk.
The old veteran looked Yujin over. "Welcome," he said in a gravelly Nepleslian accent. "You looking to join the Star Army?" he asked Yujin.
"Yes, I am looking to join the Star Army"
"Here you go, then," the guy said, grabbing a paper ticket with his mechanical arm and offering it to Yujin. "Good luck," he added.
"Thank you." Yujin said as he moved to take the offered ticket and nodded some. Then moves away and headed over to find a place to sit down,
Yujin found himself in a large interior lobby that was filled with other people sitting in chars from old starships. Viewscreens on the walls played informational videos about the various available job occupations of the Star Army of Yamatai. A row of vending machines lined one of the walls ready to dispense snacks, soda, or hot drinks, but the coffee aroma from the vending machine only partially masked the room that smelled primarily like sweat and dusty carpet. A series of electronic signs gave directions to the applicants.
Yujin was wearing his shoulderblade-length hair up in a topknot letting the hair fall down to his collar now, He moved over gather a clipboard and looked it over front to back in length even before picking up the pen to start to fill it out.
Shortly after Yujin had made his enterance to the recruiting station, a tiny woman appeared in orange Lianjia inspired orange and black clothing. With asian features that would make most people think she is Lianjia, her dark orange eyes and silver hair would make them doubt themselves as to what she actually is. She made her way to the security checkpoint and then the old Nepleslian she had heard about. Around her neck was a necklace with the Tymian Star hanging for all to see. Chances are, she's a Red.
"Welcome! Are you a citizen of the Yamatai Star Empire?" the old man at the desk asked the woman.
The woman presented her Yamataian ID to the old man, proving that she had Yamataian citizenship. Or maybe it was an elaborate forgery since she was technically an artifical Nepleslian, part of the first 100 successful subjects made by a joint project between Nepleslian Research and Manufacturing and Ryu Keiretsu. Since the RyuK cared about being legal, it is a very high chance it was indeed legit.
"Yes I am."
"Alright, head on in," the cybernetic veteran told her, waving her through to enter the lobby.
The woman looks over at the ticket machine for a moment. She opens her mouth as if to say something, but then closes it. Nodding her head with a smile, she makes her way into the lobby.
"Nice hairstyle," someone said to Yujin. There was an anthro bunny girl seated in one of the seats near him, sipping a hot coffee. She hat a top bun and a ponytail, but a vivid red color. She had long, droopy rabbit ears and short white fur covering her body, and she was wearing some sort of leather romper reminiscent of a motorcycle gang outfit.
Hearing someones comment on his hair he looked up and toward the voice, spotting the bunnygirl nearby he smiled. "Thanks, Signing up also I take it?" he would ask in his soft voice, taking in her outfit and then over to her coffee. Unsure of what else to say he moves back to filling out his paperwork till her response.
"Yep, people are always saying how the Star Army has good benefits and I don't really have much else going on right now. Oh, and hello! My name is Bronagh Bunny. What's yours?"
Yujin nodded some and then said, "Yes it is what I was being told also at my last job, and some were even saying that I was wasting my talent flying the large transports around. So up till maybe a week ago if you spoted one of them large transport craft zipping around it might have been me." hearing her name he smiles some " Ah nice to meet you Bronagh Bunny, I am Toyoda Yujin. A pleasure to meet you!"
The anthro shook his hand. "I honestly don't know what job I want," Bronagh told him. "I hope I don't mess up the interview."
Entering the lobby, the woman looked around to take in the moment. She was actually going to do it, enlist into the Star Army of Yamatai. She had always been interested in the organization since she was a wee Kikyo Scout on what she thought was Tatiana instead of the time compressed virtual reality representation it really was. She was aware of this, but she still preferred to think of it as the real world. As real as everyone laughing at her for the idea of joining the SAoY.
A smile on her face, she made her way over to the electronic applications and started to fill in the information.
Name: Radcliff Yingzi
Place of Birth:
She placed her finger on her chin before filling it in as Fujiko, Red Sands City
Yujin taken back by the hand shake, but accepted it and shook back firmly and nodded some. "Yes it is hard knowing what you want to do. I hope that with my training and my past history of flying that I'll be accepted into being a pilot of a fighter, or a bomber. Over that of a transport like my last job, I did love flying since I was a little kid, and even did a few weeks of shuttlecraft taxi driving till I quickly found out it was not for me. The people were rude, and complaned that I was too wreckless in my flying. " He srugs his shoulders filling out another section as he spoke.
Yingzi looked over towards Yujin, but doesn't say anything for the time being.
Just then Bronagh's number got called. "Looks like it's my time! You should be right behind me!" she encouraged Yujin. "See you around in the Star Army! Wish me luck!" she said, heading to one of the counters.
Nods with a smile and then as she leaves he'll say "Good luck, and sure thing I hope to see you again!" After a moment Yujin, looks down at his paperwork and sighs some glancing over toward the vending mechines and though he already ate he had the urge to go get something to drink or snack on.
