Minato is a typical Minkan with shoulder length dark red hair and bright emerald eyes. She is a conservative and reserved individual, who is a veteran of the Star Army of Yamatai. She is honest, hard working and compassionate about any task to which she invests her efforts. She is obsessively organized, stemming from her days stationed at Nataria Fleet Depot.
She enjoys dancing, orchestra music and tends to be spontaneous in taking hiking and camping trips within the forests of Nataria.
Minato was created at Nataria Fleet Depot in YE 23 as a NH-17 Nekovalkyrja where she served for several years as a decommission specialist for the Star Army of Yamatai. She perfected many of the procedures utilized in the depot to remove the weapons and restricted technologies from ships that were being mothballed. In YE 31, Minato survived the NMX attack that resulted in the capture of Nataria. After being evacuated to Planet Yamatai, she served as a logistics officer stationed at Luna Bianca Shipyard until the Second Mishhuvurthyar War began to change directions and her home was reclaimed by the Empire. In YE 33, Minato retired and transferred to a Minkan body and returned to Nataria as a civilian to assist with the rebuilding of the Nataria Fleet Depot. Lured into the political arena, when Nataria's representation risked falling into less experienced hands, Minato ran a successful campaign, becoming the senator for the world where she had spent most of her life.
Minato is a former officer of the Star Army of Yamatai, so her skills are reflective of her military service.
