Physical Description

In Field kit (Type 40 plate vest and Star Army Rifle, Type 41)Standing at a rather slightly taller than average 165cm (5'4”), this bronze-skinned Nekovalkyrija doesn't seem to cut a overly striking figure in her uniform. With her blue hair cut in a shoulder-length pixie cut which is parted at the sides by her neko ears with their tufts of purple fur, helping to frame the elf-esque face and alluring violet eyes she has, giving her a rather approachable face that is marred only by her normal expression, which tends to give her, in contrast to her appearance, an unapproachable air as she more often than not has it focused on the task with a scrunch and near glare. And yet, when she speaks, her voice tends to be soothing calmness to it.

Of course, then there is her body as a whole. Built with a comfortable slight hourglass shape to it, it has all the trappings and toning that one would expect of a often physically active soldier. Of course, all this martial strength could be considered mismtached with the slightly larger than average bust, almost like large grapefruit, as well as the purple furred tail that is regularly swaying behind her, and often a good sign of her mood with it's movements. And weighing only a mere 53kg (116 lbs) means that she has a slight heavier weight to her than the average Neko.

Personality

Having grown up as male for most of her life, Elenor still has many of the mannerisms and traits of her former male self. While some have begun to fade to more feminine ones, it can still be hard at times to call her 'one of the girls'. Had you spoken to her 3 years ago, she would have been quite upset about having been stuck in a woman's body, but 2 years of being unable to change back has mellowed this out. There is still a simmering disconnect between her mentality and her gender, but she has begun to, at this stage, accept it and seems to have begun on the path to embracing it, as evidenced by her ST into a Nekovlkyrja body, including changing her name to Elenor.

Of course, this doesn't mean they are without faults. One of her more common issues is her lashing out when people point out her apparent disconnect with her gender. She's come to terms, and trying to stop letting it affect her life, and thus can get aggressive, though not violent, when it's brought up. In addition, she hasn't yet adjusted fully to the difference in hormones effecting her moods, and has been known to be 'moody' from this adjusting period.

Of course, despite her new life, she still holds an interest in all manner of firearms, ranging from chemical-propelled slug throwers to modern Yamatai energy weapons, taking to them with a natural glee, part of which stemmed from her use of firearms growing up for both hunting and practice. She also tends to be an avid music listener, claiming that if there was anything that she collected, it would be music, and she has very few music genres she won't listen to, resulting in a very eclectic taste in what kind of music she could be listening to at any time.

History

Born 27日 3月 YE 16, as Dion Herrick, there wasn't much some would have considered of the young boy for his life. While the planet was fairly modern by Yamatai standards, there was still plenty of open wilderness, and it would be in this, the edge of the major cities that he would grow up. While his education wasn't anything to considered an prodigy about, he always had done well with more inquisitive and exploratory ventures due to his desire to find new paths and new things to do in the woods around his hometown. Of course, he also tended to do quite well in physical activities, thanks to his regular excursions into the woods, helping him develop a natural healthy lifestyle.

For him and his family, there was little true concern over the fourth Elysian war, seeing that they weren't near the fronts. Though there was some talk apparently of following Nepleslia into independence, it soon quieted down as the economic ramifications really sunk in. Dion of course, wasn't aware of this, since he was only a teen and more focused on passing his schooling, owing his 12 years of age meant he was starting to enter the kind of concerns of most boys his age - girls and what they would do after schooling. For Dion, it was join the scouts. He thought the idea of going out and exploring places, intrigued him. Even if what he imagined as a kid was more fantasy than reality, as his parents regularly pointed out.

Of course, as he and his friends were nearing the end of their main schooling before officially entering the work force, they started getting more risk taking. To the point that his friends decided to play a prank on him while they were at one of the Transference Department of the local hospital, talking Dion into getting strapped down onto a bed, getting hooked up, where they'd pretend to transfer him to the female Minkin body that was on the other bed. While such things were normally kept secure to ensure such pranks couldn't happen, the person who had ordered the body had needed to handle something shortly before the transfer was to happen, meaning that it'd all be set up to be performed when they were told it was being delayed. And because few of the boys were trained in knowing what not to press, in addition to their goofing around, they would accidentally start the process. When it started, they freaked out, as Dion was soon put under, and they couldn't stop it, since they didn't know how. Hurrying out, not bothering to tell anyone what they'd been doing, Dion was left for the time it took. During which the original client arrived, to find the poor boy stuck there. There was no back-up memory, no way to recover him mid-transfer. This meant they had to let it run its course.

To make matters worse, because the woman who's requested the transfer had been upgrading from a Geshrin body, the system was automatically set to dispose of the body. Meaning that after the transfer occurred, and Dion awake in the new body, the system did the standard check to make sure the transfer took hold with no ill effects. And then promptly euthanized his old body, and sent it down the chute to the vats to be handled with by the systems. No back-up, and his body gone, Dion was forced to explain the entire thing, as he could remember it. Sadly, by the time his friends had been rounded up and confirmed the story, most of the medical professionals worried that Dion's old body, specifically it's DNA, would no longer be salvageable to allow him to at least get a new body of his own. In addition, there was a sizeable queue for a new body to be made, that they could do little to help.

He and his family however, weren't willing to let this just sit though. They began trying all manner of methods to try and recover some kind of DNA that could be used, but each new attempt that resulted in failure, began to wear on him and his family. After a year, they began to loose hope, and started working on adjusting to his new gender. A situation he, she, begrudgingly started herself accepting. She started trying to live her life as a woman, and while the Minkan body was in many ways better than her old Gesherin one, it wasn't her body. The woman wasn't upset with Dion herself, since she was more the victim of the whole thing than anything, but she was still held responsible for the situation getting as bad as it had.

Deciding to still follow through with her plan to enlist in the Star Army, part of it was because she no longer felt 'welcome' in her community, despite her and her family's best efforts to adapt. She wanted to get away from that sense of disappointment with her despite what'd happened, and find a place where she could try and finish adjusting to her new life without as harsh of judgement. When she did enlist, she had, as she had grown into the habit of doing by that point, put herself down as female. When asked what kind of soul transfer she'd want to help prepare her for training, she listened as the recruiter mentioned the Nekovalkyrja, and she soon decided she would do that. It was enough of a change of herself from who she used to be, both in form and life, that maybe that'd be how she'd accept her new life, since she'd get to fully decide herself her new form.

Atop that, she would sign on for the Reconnaissance section of the Infantry in the Star Army, wanting to take her skills from her growing up with her into the military. Including changing her name to something that felt feminine, to help pull her away from her old life, since being called Dion despite her body did little to help her emotions with the change in her life.

Operational Records

YE 40 After being assigned to various units after finishing her training, she would be assigned to the YSS Hana after receiving a request for support from the ship. While she herself would not participate directly in the boarding action, her presence was noted. She would spend some time on the Hana, getting acclimated to ship-board life on the front lines, before receiving a transfer notice, now being sent, with a promotion in hand, to the YSS Kaiyō II.
