Ella weighs about 130lbs and stands in at a 5'6“ height. Her body is an almost pale white color with a pear-shaped figure. Her eyes are up-turned shape and have an emerald green color to them.
Her curly dark brown hair would be a somewhat chin length if it wasn't always kept in a somewhat unkempt ponytail most of the time. The only times she seems to care about hair is when an officer is nearby.
Ella is, for the most part, socially awkward in person. She has a habit of locking-up in casual conversation and usually keeps to herself. Talking to her over some sort of digital medium is almost the exact opposite, showing to her to be a lot talkative and somewhat snarky in her tone.
Compared to most other marines Ella can be seen as a bit cowardly, preferring to keep herself behind or under something whenever bullets start flying till they stop. On foot, it takes quite a bit of shouting and being shot at before she even considers leaving her cover or shooting back. While in a tank she has quite a bit of confidence, even to the point of arrogance in combat.
Despite being Nepleslian, she is a massive obsessive over Yamataian culture and is even bigger fanatic of the Yamataian icon, Ketsurui Hanako. She is part of an online community of Hanako fanatics and has spent large chunks of money of “mint” and “original” Hanako memorabilia. She also always seems to have a small figurine of the nekovalkyrja and seems to talk to it like its actually Hanako when she assumes no one's looking…
Ella Duville was born in YE 20 to a modest life in the Funky City slums. When she was a child, she never really had any friends or was physically active. Going to school was a living hell for her and often found herself getting bullied. The only time she felt safe was in her room with her barely functioning TV and a small computer that was held together with stings and zip-ties. Through those, she found herself immersed with the InterNep and worlds of fiction and eventually imported and poorly dubbed anime from Yamatai. IT almost became he main outlet for life itself for most of childhood.
One day she was introduced to a new show that just came out in Yamatai called Kamen Sentai Nekoranger through her some friends on the InterNep and fell in love with the show and the main character. Every Saturday she found herself glued to the TV set, watching the adventures of Yamamoto Sami and the crew of the Good Ship Saku-Saku. Through some quick searching online and some lurking on online forums, she found the inspiration of the main character: Ketsurui Hanako.
Hanako soon dominated her life as Ella began buying what Hanako memorabilia she could with little money she had. Her parents started worry at this point and decided enough was enough by the time she got herself dakimakura of the Yamataian icon and forced her to join the NSMC to hopefully instill some good old fashion Nepleslian values into their daughter

Hand-to-hand, Ella's nearly downright pathetic. Despite the training she'd receive from the NSMC basic, it'd better to keep her a good 10 to 15ft away from any baddies. Put a gun in her hands and she becomes mostly competent in combat. While she's not exactly a dead eye, she's still a pretty decent shot. For some reason, she seems somewhat competent in using swords…
Though she's learned quite a bit about strategy and tactics from her NSMC training, she actually knows quite a bit more from playing some RTS games she totally didn't pirate from the InterNep.
Despite her love for snack foods, Ella's gone a few months without a lot of the amenities of daily life thanks to living in the slums. Her training with the NSMC only furthered her ability to survive in a hostile envrioment, albeit with less concrete and more dirt.
Can speak and write in both Trade (language) and Yamataigo (邪馬台語). Learned how to speak Yamataigo from various animes and online lessons from friends in Yamatai. She does have habit of slipping yamataigo in her speech occasionally. Her hand writing can turn to scribbles after a few sentences of writing.
Due to her training in the NSMC and prior research in vehicle operations on the InterNep for writing fan-fiction, she knows how to operate most ground vehicles within the NSMC's arsenal. Can also perform some basic repairs but nothing extensive without help from actual mechanics.
Ella is actually quite skilled in drawing in a style that closely reassembles Yamataian manga and anime and even has drawn several short comics in her spare time. Just don't ask to look at them; she's somewhat protective of them.
While she's not an expert hacker, Ella does know some basic coding and hacking skills from spending a lot of her time on her old computer. Just enough to make some proxies, pirate some games and movies, and completely wipe a hard drive when needed.
