Miyako in Roleplay

Miyako needs a nice place to call home, her handler is Alectai.

Physical Characteristics

Build and Skin Colour: A very… Well, diminuative young lady. While just barely of a height to not be tripped over by accident, her build doesn't really compare, being remarkably slender, nearly washboard-esque, and lacking very much in curves and other such womanly attributes. It's often taken as a surprise when people find out her actual age. Her skin color is a fairly light color, far from being the etherially pale that's often popularized in fiction and such, but a long ways from being a bright happy peach either.

Facial Features and Eye Colour: Expressive–almost overly so, with her face often contorting from anywhere from childish depression, to the stern rage that any good housekeeper develops at some point or another. Her violet, energetic eyes tend to be amplified somewhat by the rather large, round pair of glasses she'll wear, despite not technically needing them since the “Upgrade”, she figures she looks silly without them at this point.

Hair Colour and Style: Contrary to the slightly “Out of it” eye color, Miyako's hair is almost perfectly ordinary, save for a few slight adjustments. Colored a nice, traditional raven black for the most part, and consistantly kept nice, neat, and clinically straight… Save for the slight curve at the tips, at just below her shoulderblades, her hair makes a rather futile effort of defying gravity, and the blue-tinted edge struggles in vain to reach for the skies.

Distinguishing Features: Aside from being an overly energetic meganeko in a society where the need for such eye correction has long been served, along with her own sense of 'style' in terms of hair and eye color, she doesn't really have any particular feature that really jumps out at you.

Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Debatably one of the more 'Likable' individuals out there, Miyako is the sort of person drawn into a military position sheerly from a sense of personal duty alone, as opposed to just in it for the paycheck, or the honor that getting in a nasty scuffle is going to get you if you come out in less then two pieces of course. She's quite intelligent, possessing of a dry, generally uninsulting wit–assuming of course that you're not the sort who can't stand perfectly legitimate criticism framed in an amusing way–and beyond all that, is an excellent cook and cleaner. Furthermore, she's actually one of those rare genuinely altruistic souls out there who would always do the Right Thing when it comes down to the wire… On the other hand, there are quite a few people who genuinely don't particularly care to be 'Helped along', and for obvious reasons, she's not particularly popular with them, as she simply just doesn't seem to get that hint.

Still, being in the Star Army means that one is genuinely expected to fight–a thought that fills Miyako with no end of the nasty kind of shivers… To be perfectly honest though, she would be able to choke her misgivings down and do what needs to be done, assuming, of course, that she was attempting to fight off something that is not only trying to kill her–but one gladly slaughter any noncombattant that gets in it's way. Against more morally ambiguous targets, she'll naturally protest quite a bit more, to the point of significantly reducing her efficiency in that regard. Please note, that despite being able to function, she clearly doesn't appreciate being put in said kill-or-be killed situations, and much prefers her own trade above this.

Likes: Pastries, Her Family, Cooking and Cleaning, Sci-Fi/Fantasy Books

Dislikes: Peppers, 'Unneccessary Violence', Badly Written Romance (Real OR Fictional!)

Goals: To do her part in securing the safety of the Empire

History

Born in the wake of the Plague, the daughter of a down-on-his luck author, and a horridly busy secretary, Miyako had the delightful position of being not only the oldest in what ultimately turned out to be a family of six, but apparently the only one who actually had the time on their hands to learn the more esoteric arts of household management. For the most part, her life had gone more or less well, bouncing back and forth between upper-middle class (When her father had written something that did Fairly Well in the markets) and Lower-Middle (When he bombed, and it was simply mother's income that came into the house).

Despite the upheaval though, she was fairly happy, growing into an excellent domestic warrior, and doing well enough in educational pursuits to earn a scholarship to the more post-secondary schools out there. Indeed, things were doing quite well… At least up until the whole Mishuvurthyar War started getting a little more intense, tricky, and more unpleasant then ever before… Being the overly responsible young lady that she had grown up to be, when things began to look like nobody could simply sit by and hope for the best. She upgraded to a Yamataian body, and signed up into basic training as opposed to continuing with more civilian post-secondary occupation… Having finished with more or less passing marks, she got a little time off while waiting for her first assignment to begin.

Skills

Communication

Miyako is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other characters through headsets, starships, power armor, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. She is also fluent in English, can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, and–god forbid–issue orders under fire if the chain of command winds up so boggled that she's in a position to do so.

Fighting

Miyako has also 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. In addition, her trade has resulted in a very heavy emphasis towards close combat. When combined with her long practice from having to know exactly how and when to cut something in order to get the best flavor out of it, she can do Very Scary Things with the knife in particular–but is also fairly good with blades of most length, and at least passable in unarmed combat.

Technology Operation

Miyako 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. Aside from the minimums though, she doesn't have any traits that stand out in this regard.

Mathematics

Miyako received basic mathematics training, to including up to algebra and trigonometry. Specifically though, she is excellent at basic arithmetic, being able to put together fairly respectable sums together in her head, and come out with a good answer if need be.

Domestic (Cooking)

Miyako knows how to cook foods of all types, from pastries to main course. she knows how to experiment with ingredients to create palatable dishes. She also knows how to set up and clean tables for a variety of functions and present food in an appealing manner. Being able to put together said meals even completely from scratch has been a fairly good ability up until now, and despite a slight tendency towards the pastries that are her favorite treat, she can also mix together some almost painfully sweet alchemical drink concoctions out of whatever fruit juices and sodas are available… Just don't expect her to get too fancy with the booze, most of her experience was cooking for the underage.

Humanities

Miyako is familiar with psychology and counseling. And her genuinely good demeanour and experience dealing with younger children has made her into a rather excellent listener. As well as being quite able to get a point across to a stubborn individual if need be.

Medical

Finally, Miyako is also familiar with first-aid, as well as having some certifications towards more serious injuries should they come across. While it's no replacement for full out medical attention, she can usually keep someone in one piece with a medical kit, or improvise well enough with kitchen ingredients to buy enough time for said medical attention to arrive.
