Ise Momoya - Mother Ise-clan: Momoka, Momoe, Momoko, Momona and Nenene - Aunts
Atago was born on 20th February, YE 35 to Ise Momoya. Momoya was an NH-29m infantry neko, who wanted to experience motherhood. Momoya was one of five sisters and as infantry she did not progress as far as others in terms of carrier. So she wanted something else she could hold in front of her sisters. She would be first to have a daughter.
It was such a simple reason that Atago came to this world. Luckily she never found out, why her mother had her. Atago was fairly happy in those weeks she spent as a youngling with her mother. It was a bittersweet time as Atago's mother could be a bit tough at times, switching between mother and sergeant mode. Still it could have been a lot worse.
After 3 months, Atago started her military carrier by attending basic starship operator course. She was afraid her mother would be disapointed, that Atago did not choose to become infantry neko like her mother, but it would be the other way. Momoya was more than okay, as serving as a starship operator was one of the most prestigious services in the SAoY.
The course took 3 months and Atago specialized in gunnery. After her course was completed, Atago received assignment on the YSS Fuji, a 4th fleet's Chiaki-class escort destroyer, where she served as 2n gunner. There she spent 4 more months and got into a single combat situation with a ship of tobacco smugglers.
After that she returned to school. This time Atago opted for an officer training. That took another 7 months. At the end, she was moved to serve as gunner on YSS Mikiro, where she finished her training as an officer. At the end she moved back to school where she awaited her full assignment, working as assistant instructor to her kouhais.
Her assignment finally arriving, she left the military school to become part of YSS Tamahagara crew. A ship with crew formed exclusively by mini-nekoes like her. It had a catch though, the captain of the ship was Atago's aunt…
Atago has all the basic combat training, every soldier serving in Star Army of Yamatai receives. She is skilled in hand-to-hand combat, using of pistols and short bladed weapons. Atago was trained to operate power armour. Addition to this, she received personal lesson from her mother who is trained Infantry neko. Atago's skills with power amour and handheld weaponry are at higher level, than basic training, other shipboard servicemen and women receive. Still it is not at the lever of an infantry. Atago can move, fight and maneuver in the PA with good skill, but any advanced techniques, using of high level equipment and group tactics are beyond her.
Atago is ambidexterous and learned how to dual-wield pistols, due to her liking of nepleslian historical documentaries. She also taught herself how to fast-draw her pistols and do tricks with her guns.
Atago received basic mathematics training, to including algebra and trigonometry. She is able to calculate difficult vectors in her head, thanks to being nekovalkyrja. Mathematics were of course trained hard, as it is one of the must have skills for a skilled ship gunner.
Ise Atago 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. Atago is fluent in Trade (language) and Yamataigo (邪馬台語). Due to her service in 10th fleet she made sure to learn Lorath language. She can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire in all these languages. Atago can also talk in binary.
While trained mainly as a ship-gunner, Atago received basic training every Starship Operator receives. She can fill in as a navigator, scanning station officer and pilot if needed. All these skill are very basic, but she is able to do them. She of course shines as a gunner. She spent hours in VR training, practicing with point-defense weaponry, missiles, torpedoes and main ship cannons. She can utilise and control all ship-based weapons.
Atago is also trained in basics of serving on a ship. She can do rudimentary maintenance and has knowledge of SAoY ships.
Atago 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. She also has knowledge of programming and using targeting systems for weapon systems. She has basic knowledge of going around certain systems and fail-safes to keep her gun firing should such a need arrive.
Atago got through extensive training needed off a SAoY officer. She has knowledge in leadership, command and fleet tactics. At the moment her knowledge is mainly situated with gunnery and leadership of a single ship. She was trained to be confident when issuing orders and how to present herself as SAoY officer.
Atago was voted a Karaoke master back on Officer school. She knows most popular Yam-pop and Yam-rock songs as well as nepleslian music. She loves nepleslian cinematography and is something of a historical document nerd. She knows most Yamataian historical movies directed by Arika Urosawa. Atago also loves history of Nepleslia and saw most documents and reproductions starring such stars as East Clintwood and Jawn Dwayne.
Ise Atago has the following items, all sized for a mini-neko of course:
