Build and Skin Color: The main body is vaguely humanoid and light in construction, thin and limber, but with large hips and exaggerated hands and shoulders. The cream-colored skin is more of a rubberized plastic shell, with many joints either having obvious metal caps or remaining totally exposed. There are also many extra guidance fins on the waist and limbs, and the reinforced shoulders and pelvis have more of a sky blue coloration. Several panels around the midriff, chest and neck are also more of a bright pink, and labels and parts numbers are almost everywhere. Lastly, a thick cord-like prehensile tail is attached to their rear, which ends in a glowing green cone of crystal-like glass.
Eyes and Facial Features: Narrow, deep red eyes gaze out from dark grey cheetah eye spots. The head overall is round, but with a slightly angular nose and chin. Two long fins are swept back from their forehead like insect antenna.
Hair: A huge mane of glossy ivory hair, totally unkempt.
Ears: Huge triangular ones like that of a fennec fox, prone to sticking straight outwards.
Personality: Softly spoken and somewhat childlike in their view of the world, Goramu is not really aware of their own strength or the limitations of others. They have barely attained conventional sentience and tend not to understand the complex emotions of others easily. They take to things like pretending they are breathing in order to make others feel comfortable, but rarely make personal introductions or make eye contact. Indeed, they still have trouble recognizing faces and objects, much prefering to label everything in their general vicinity.
Spare time is often spent sorting and rearranging things to their own tastes, including other people's personal belongings. Despite a preference for words and numbers, they quite like to be read stories, as well as reading books with pictures.
In combat, well… They just act exactly the same. They have zero fear of death or being hurt.
Constructed in YE 36 by a Star Army Research Administration project leader named Michiru Ise.
Originally part of a company project that sought to increase the parts compatibility concept of the 33A model to the next level, creating a Nekovalkyja that truly needed no power armor to operate effectively. Old NH-28 Nodal Integrated Weapon System bodies were thus chosen as a test bed, attempting to integrate modern technologies as well as an actual soul construct-level sentience.
Progress was slow due to neural net problems, and the miniaturization of components meaning it wasn't actually any better than current technology. A general lack of interest by the higher-ups due to the body's rather inhuman appearance was also a problem, as they figured it looked too aggressive and presented a poor public image of what it is like to live as nekovalkyrja.
Knowing they were days away from being scrapped, the head production designer thus intentionally ushered the six NH-28 'f' bodies to gain sentience, knowing that they could at least be recruited into the Star Army rather than being dismantled completely. The names were taken from her various childhood pets.
Only three succeeded in passing the Turing test that took place afterwards, with one of them being Goramu.
Physical tests passed, they were then sent to the YSS Kaiyo as a combat support unit.
Has exactly the same power and equipment as a Mindy 4, except that they lack shoulder mounts, and cannot use volumetrics for anything other than standard optical camouflage. Yes, this means they can wield power armor weapons bare handed, though they themselves cannot fit inside another power armor. The nails are Zesuaium, and the end of the tail has an integrated Ke-M6-W3100 Plasma Blade. They require the standard amount of food to supply their brain, but special oxygen reserves mean they can survive for up to three days in space.
Having not only passed the standard training, but also born into an environment that required constant efficiency tests, Goramu is a cold and calculating killing machine in times of war. The way that they move can be a little predictable and lacking in self preservation, but their ability to use both firearms and melee strikes is definitely of a medium to high quality.
Goramu has the Star Army Standard Issue Items starters equipment, in addition to the following extra items;
Wendigo currently has 3000 KS.
