Aki has a wiry, athletic build — a holdover from her past as a NH-17 armor pilot. Her skin is a soft, pale white, but not so pale as to look unhealthy. She has characteristically Nekovalkyrjan facial features and is as physically attractive as any other member of the species. Her eyes are a muddy orange, almost ochre, and have a dark ring surrounding the iris. The Nekovalkyrja captain wears her black hair in a long pixie cut. When she was ordered to transfer into a NH-29 body, she opted for her memories to be transferred into the 29H variant.
Hokusai Akiyo has a friendly disposition, but throughout her career has been known for her ruthlessness, in battle or otherwise. She is uncompromising when she believes that she is correct, even when it is not socially prudent to do so, but will treat nearly anybody as an equal when she doesn't have an argument to present. The Taisho shows no quarter to her enemies, but is compassionate in their defeat.
Likes: Victory, conflict, hot baths, cold weather, space.
Dislikes: People who disagree with her, people who are wrong, politics (because everybody involved is wrong), the fact that she's always right.
Goals: As a being created to serve, her only goal is to not lose what she has already achieved, but to only gain more.
Created in YE 23 by Kitsurugi Heavy Industries, Hokusai Akiyo was one of the trillions of NH-17 Nekovalkyrja created to fight the Empire's wars. She, as most of her kind are, was created to fight Yamatai's enemies while wearing power armor and served the first two years of her life as a space infantry grunt.
Eventually, through brevet promotions and her own drive drive towards success, Aki was promoted through the enlisted and warrant officer ranks. In YE 26, she was made a Shoi and by YE 28 was a Chusa, serving as Commander, Armor Group (CAG) of the YSS Roka, a Kyoto-class carrier in the First Expeditionary Fleet. In early YE 29, the Nekovalkyrja would be promoted to serve as the Roka's first officer.
After the required tenure as a ship's first officer, she was promoted to Shôshô in January, YE 30. Based on aptitude scores and the need for starship captaincies, Aki was given command of the Roka following the ship's former Shôshô's own elevation in rank. With a clear aptitude for command, Aki's tenure as the commander of the carrier would be short, again being promoted — this time to Chujo — in October of that same year. She was assigned from the First Expeditionary Fleet to Star Army Command, where she began administrative work on the creation of a new standard fleet. As the fleet neared completion, she was given command of the Ninth Standard Fleet and ascended to the administrative rank of Taisho.
In YE 36, she was transferred from command of the fleet she built to manage the Third Fleet. She brought with her a central corps of the Ninth Fleet's command and staff officers, maintaining the old Ninth's naval infantry tradition in the Third, even as the former's organization changed under its new Taisho.
Tactics and Strategy: Aki doesn't have any natural talent or a gift for warfighting, but has extensive experience in her profession. Her ability has warranted her promotion to Taisho of a fleet, and thusly is certainly not to be taken lightly. * Public speaking (Leadership)* Aki knows how to speak to her subordinates. Having served as a ship's CAG, she can direct soldiers effectively in battle and effectively command in stressful situations.
