Build and Skin Colour: Small and thin even for a Nekovalkyrja, Rina does not look like she should be standing on the front lines of war. Yet beneath the creamy skin of this young Nekovalkyrja lies the wiry strength of all her kind. Though rarely seen aboard ship, when exposed to the sun her skin quickly covers itself with freckles, leaving a combination that can only be described as cute.
Eyes and Facial Features: Rina's wide, pale violet eyes gaze out from behind long lashes. Set wide on her heart shaped face, they frame a small flat nose set above a narrow mouth. Her moderately full lips curve upwards at the ends in the semblance of a slight smile and gleam with a slight pinkish tint.
Ears: Her Neko ears are covered in fur on the outer side. This hair stands slightly upright, giving her ears a furry appearance.
Hair Colour and Style: At a quick glance, Rina's hair might appear black. A closer inspection however reveals a dark blue shine, best seen when the light strikes it just so. Occasional tendrils of deep red run out from the roots giving contrast to her thick mane. Her hair is cut into wide layers, starting in line the tips of her ears and running to just below her shoulders and is worn back behind her ears.
Distinguishing Features: As a factory made Nekovalkyrja, Rina bears a small serial number tattoo on the base of her right foot
Personality: At the core, Rina is a caring person. She cares for her friends, her companions, her fellow people, even those she has not met. She cares for the Yamatai Star Empire and so it was that the attacks on it during the Second Mishhuvurthyar War have shaken her greatly. She has always know and embraced her path into the Star Army, yet in her heart she secretly, kept even from herself, hoped to avoid the front lines of war. As an eyewitness on the ground for The Battle of Yamatai and its aftermath she came to realise that to protect all she loves, she must kill that which she has come to hate. And that hate terrifies her.
The Rina of only a few months ago - quick to laugh, to play, even to flirt - is drowning under the new Rina - angry, determined, afraid. And it is not yet clear which one will win out.
Rina was made by the Ketsurui Zaibatsu.
Inoue Rina was created on the Planet Yamatai, where she was enrolled in the standard Star Army of Yamatai training. Of particular note was her keen interest in her telepathic abilities, the boundaries of which she pushed against at every opportunity. She also displayed interest in conventional communications gear and it is the view of the supervising officers that she was and is attempting to reconcile this with her innate telepathic abilities and potentially to interlink the two.
Inoue Rina was present on Yamatai during the recent NMX offensive. As a senior Yontô Hei close to graduation she participated in relief efforts in some of the worst hit regions on the planet. The sights she witnessed during these operations have had a negative effect on this lively young Nekovalkyrja. It is the advice of this committee that future commanding officers maintain oversight to ensure that this experience does not develop dangerously and to arrange counseling as necessary. Given the need for recruits throughout the fleet, this committee cannot however justify withholding Yontô Hei Inoue from promotion to active duty.
A full psychological profile follows.
Chief Supervising Officer
Rina graduated from training in the immediate aftermath of The Battle of Yamatai as part of the drive to replace losses on the participating fleets. She was assigned to the YSS Eucharis, Second Squadron, First Expeditionary Fleet. Unable to board the ship before she departed dock, Rina took passage on the YSS Aurora of the same squadron whose Captain, Taii Akita Yukie, retained her to assist in reorganising the interiors of her ship following damage sustained during The Battle of Yamatai. Shortly after the squadron's arrival in the Samurai Sector, Rina transferred to the Eucharis for active service.
Rina is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other characters through headsets, starships, power armour, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. She is fluent in Nepleslian and Yamataian and can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc. Rina is particularly proficient with the telepathy and wireless communication skills of the Nekovalkyrja and has a better understanding of how they work than the average Nekovalkyrja.
Rina 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, grenades, energy rifles and power armour. She has demonstrated a marked preference for long ranged weaponry and is most proficient correspondingly.
Rina is capable of operating any computer system that uses the Kessaku OS, found on all Star Army starships. She is proficient in entering and/or searching for information.
Rina received basic mathematics training, up to and including algebra and trigonometry. She has also undertaken informal learning into the underpinnings of wireless communication.
Rina is skilled in the assembly of communications equipment as a result of her own private pursuits. She has spent substantial time pulling apart and reassembling commercial communications devices while attempting to relate such equipment to her telepathic abilities. Her experience of devices capable of independent long range communications is limited to a single instance involving Star Army equipment that resulted in a month’s latrine duty.
Rina loves to dance and has taken every opportunity to do so that has been presented to her in her short life. As a result she gained quite the reputation amongst her fellow Star Army recruits during training and has become quite a talented amateur at her preferred slow paced solo or paired dances. Tricks she has learnt from these, alongside her natural Nekovalkyrja grace, mean that she is also skilled at other forms of dance as well.
Rina considers it cheating to use her Inertia Control Abilities while dancing. As a consequence she is extremely limber, able to reach poses with an ease that would surprise any onlooker. Such an agile body has served her well in other situations, as has the stamina she has developed from having to hold an awkward pose which a partner not quite as skilled as she is delivered her into.
