Family (or Creators)


Irenika was originally created by Ketsurui Zaibatsu for the Ketsurui Clan in early YE 30 to provide archiving services, hence her surname to reflect the proximity meaning to the royal term. However, within half the year, she was re-assigned to Fort Ready due to her “in-ability to stay focus for long at work”.

In truth, Nika had been the point of jealousy among her peers for being an updated model which was able to work faster than them. Thus she had been pushed around often, being made to do work assigned to others. However, she always keep her spirits up, which irked her peers evenmore. It was then they made up several serious archiving errors, pinning the blame on the Neko. Her supervisors, not wanting any more incidents happening, moved her to Fort Ready.

During her time at Fort Ready, her trainers were given mixed observation reports about her:

1.Very satisfied due to her urge to learn and could remember and finish things quickly, thus trained her on Starship Operations.

2.Not satisfied as she was always getting distracted by minor things. Many a times, she had been found outside the training venues, ears widely fanned out, listening to the surroundings, while her eyes were catching small movements.

Her training lasted for the full 6 months, which she managed to pass everything they had thrown at her. Now while awaiting for assignments, she would be tuned in to nature or be surrounded by information where she can take her time to read.


Working on the YSS Eucharis provided Nika with variable environments not found in the Imperial Palace; She gets to meet new people, make new friends, able to satisfy her curiosity as long it did not cause any bad feedback from her immediate superior Ketsurui Hanako. So far she's quite happy working as a Starship Operator on the ship.

The real test of her skills came during the infiltration and extractions of personnal and technology from an Elysian Starbase. Though she was assigned to stay back on the ship during the operation, she had been actively monitoring communications right up to the NMX's assault, which lead to the destruction of the starbase. While making their escape, the ship suffered serious damage, almost burning her alive, but she remain positive throughout the remaining mission. However, a miscalculation on over reliance on technology almost killed two of her crewmates. Though the crew mates involved were not angry, deep down in her heart, she felt remoseful over what had happened.

Her second official mission involved infiltrating a MNX infested Yamatai Star Base. There, she saw the macabre workings of her nation’s enemy, prompting her to steel herself for the upcoming battle, which came too quickly for her and the infiltration team. Though the team had successfully completed their mission, the losses were great and Irenika herself was seriously injured. Thankfully the advance medical treatment within the Eucharis saved her.



Irenika has a sound knowledge of historical events between YE01 to the present. Anything else before YE01 is just blanks for her to fill up whenever she finds new materials to add on to the current materials.

History Timeline

Also, she loves watching anime and reading manga, thus, her library of these stuff tend to build up in the archiving data, much to her supervisors' dislike before she was re-assigned to Fort Ready.

Starship Operations

Astrometrics, stellar cartography, navigation, helm, etc. She had read them, applied them all. Her brain just sucks them in and organizes them such that she can pilot a starship without any problems. However, 8 out of 10 tries she tends to crash her ship during virtual training as it meant fun and games to her, much to her trainers annoyance.


Irenika 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. Irenika is fluent in Nepleslian as well as Yamataian. She can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc.

Telepathic Communication will only be used during emergencies.


Irenika 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, as well as proficiency with grenade and energy rifles.

Power Armour isn't her thing. But she would use it in desperate situations.

Technology Operation

Irenika is capable of operating any computer system that uses the Kessaku OS, found on all Star Army starships. She is very proficient in entering and/or searching for information.

She is also proficient in using other OSs due to long exposure to them while looking and experimenting them in the Ketsurui Clan data archives.


Irenika received basic mathematics training, to including up to algebra and trigonometry. She never liked studying mathematics, but she knows its importance for calculating in stellar cartography and navigation.


Irenika has always been independent; washing her own clothes, buying and cooking her own meals. Sometimes while finding things to do, she would start cleaning up things within her immediate surroundings if she finds it messy.
