Standing at five feet and nine feet tall (roughly 172cm), Julia is far from the traditional slim and lithe girls one might expect in an age of near super-model beauties. Her frame is similar to a slightly less-defined hourglass, boasting a more plump and curvy weight with a nice heart-shaped RUMP1) to boot, that goes with being a mother and having had wider hips for bearing her son. It's this very same sturdy frame that supports a large, E-cup pair of breasts. However, due to their size, they are often wrapped and kept well-bound to prevent hindering her own actions. Her slim, pale blue eyes are permanently blinded with a semi-intensive scar pattern covering her eyes from what could be described only as a pellet or flak-like burn. To account for this, she is often seen wearing a mind-linked viewing visor, with a brilliant blue viewing bar that matches what her eyes originally looked like. Small ears are well-framed by her curly, blonde hair that cascades down all around her head in a few inches in an almost organized and stylish mess. Her face carries the earliest signs of aging, her soft jawline somewhat accented and her cheeks thinning despite her weight. The scent of cherries follows her closely, a hint of her favorite pastime handling a garden of them.
Despite her face scarring, Julia Brisk is rather unharmed by her long military career. She lacks any sort of other scarring or harsh blemishes, however supporting the original Nepleslian Star Empire flag and the NSN Anchor on her back, with the flag along her left shoulder and the anchor up the right side of her body. Further still, a cute two-inch wide heart can be found tattooed above her waist with the name of her son, “Arris”, written in cursive. These tattoos are almost always hidden beneath her uniform, most people not daring to ask the woman thanks to her own commanding “bark”. Despite having a stronger and deeper voice when commanding, Julia often speaks moderately and with a slight wheezing to some of her longer sentences.
Julia, as one might expect, is a very proud woman motivated by both loyalty in her nation and hope for the future of Nepleslia. Her husband's success as a member of the Marines has led her into trying to change and better the nation for the better, carrying diligence and expectations she had for him toward those who serve under her. Originally born in the age where being a Nepleslian was a cripple, Miss Brisk has always viewed working hard and appearing as a beacon of bravery are key traits to any Nepleslian leader. This has made her a staunch disbeliever in caution, exercising some of the most aggressive and experimental doctrines in battles to effectively drive home her own ideas.
Suffice to say her views on command and her personality favoring the bold have earned Julia many foes and rivalries, particularly among politicians that outright disapprove of her eagerness to be morally strong and proud. Those who have been her allies, however, would know the kind and quiet women behind the loud and staunch mother-admiral. A mother to not just her own blood, she wants to see that more than just her own lineage can drive forth and set the sector and the stars beyond to the whim of Nepleslians everywhere. And anyone between her and that goal will find the blind woman is most unkind!
But the woman finds herself to be fairly normal when she isn't in the battlefield or in the politician's cabinet. She spends her freetime either studying old battle records, reading the news, sending messages to her family, or catering to a personal collection of cherry bushes she has in her ship's office since her first command. A total nerd for gardening, she has particular taste and dedication to the beautiful plants and has even taken the time to crossbreed and produce unique and far more colorful berries to add to her meals!
Julia Brisk was born in YE 03 in orbit of Geshrintall, otherwise known as Planet Yamatai, long before the founding of Nepleslia. As a small girl, much of her life was what would would expect from a spacer and fairly common upbringing. Her father was a part of the Yamataian army, while her mother helped maintain the station she lived on. Up until YE 17, she was able to avoid much of the strife that resulted and brewed in Yamatai's run-ins. To pass the time while forced planetside, this meant that the ten year-old Julia spent her time handling cherry gardens with her mother. It was, however, during one of these very same unfortunate moments where Julia would suffer a life-long injury during one of the Elysian bombings, some of the flaming debris trapping her and landing on her face. It would leave her scarred for life, even prompting her to seek out ways to see and serve without her eyes. In an age where Yamatai lacked the technology to transfer her into anything but the earliest of models for the Neko, her only option was with still rather early technology that worked in the form of a helmet that provided sight.
By the time she turned sixteen, having spent much of her late childhood and early teenage years studying and preparing, Julia underwent training and served as a Yamataian pilot during the Fourth Elysian War between YE 23 and YE 25. She was still tremendously young, mostly assisting with ground work, but was one of many outraged when the glassing of Damasica occurred. Unlike some who saw the war as necessary to end, the still young teenager was in such an uproar that she left the military and fled to join the still new efforts of Nepleslia. On the backs of her experience and without any of her friends or family, Julia made it her job for the next few years to further her knowledge. Despite her lack of presence on the front, in YE 28 Julia would earn her first experience in Nepleslian warfare by training some of pilots to operate craft and handle weaponry.
Suffice to say, Julia was an experienced young woman by YE 30. At the age of twenty-three, she would end up taking a step back however. It was at this time she met her husband, Arris, and decided to settle down on Planet Nepleslia. She had been invited to join with the Nepleslian Navy properly after her efforts were looked at from the prior war, but at the time she declined with the hopes of having a normal life. Her helmet had been reduced to a simple but large visor, giving her coverage of her burns and allowing her the freedom to finally grow her hair out. For the year she spent with Arris, an ID-SOL in his prime, Julia had grown out her hair for the first time since she was a small child, boasting long blonde hair. At the outbreak of the Second Mishhuvurthyar War, however, her husband had asked for Julia to retreat and stay away from the front. The man had said he wanted her to be waiting for him when he finished beating those squids, suggesting she could curl her hair.
Off-world when Nepleslia became truly involved in the war, Julia gave birth to her son2) in YE 32 and was forced to raise him for nearly two years on her own. In YE 34, however, she was delivered heartbreaking news that Arris had died in combat. Despite now being in her late twenties, the new widow wished for a way to improve the nation that had lost her husband to ensure the safety of her child's future. Accepted into the Nepleslian Star Navy, Julia chose to use her old connections to seek out her commission. At the age of thirty in the year YE 37, her efforts were rewarded when she earned her initial ranking of Lieutenant. It was here that she served with the 1st Assault Fleet for nearly two years, building a reputation as a hair-raising experimental leader who fought tooth and nail. Sent out to more rough encounters, she continued to deliver results in skirmishes with the broken NMX and pirates throughout Nepleslian space, quickly earning her way through promotions until in early YE 39 she was rewarded with the status of Rear Admiral. Her now seven year old son, a prodigy of technology and an aspiring star within the Nepleslian youths, crafted her a new visor that she wore to her ceremony, aptly solidifying the woman who helped train some of the earliest generations of pilots that helped craft Nepleslia's future and had earned her way after being struck by fate so many times.
At long last, however, she was finally gifted the position and opportunity to bring under her a new task group, one of brave individuals who could continue to shape Nepleslia for the future. To prepare the stars for her child.
A meeting is arranged between Julia in mid YE-39, the Premier, and Barrett Valke. After a brief encounter, the group comes to the full-understanding that she is in need of promotion and that her group would be formed within the new NSN 1st Expeditionary Fleet with the entire fleet under her command.
Due to her original service as a pilot within Yamatai, Julia's basic skills are broadened to feature some of the Yamataian basic training such as being able to speak Yamataigo (邪馬台語). This also means knowledge on the older craft within the Star Army of Yamatai such as the early Ke-M2 "Mindy" Series of Power Armor models and the long-forgotten Ki-V1 "Hoplite" Variable-Configuration Fighter. However, her experience and knowledge of modern Yamataian craft has significantly waned off and her training has instead been made similar to the currently-standing NSMC Basic Training.
She has been a mother as much as a soldier, and as such Julia is quite adept at the “normal household chores” that people take as simple tasks. This skill means she can quote off little-known facts to clean clothes, basic recipes, and caring for even the most rowdy of children. Some could say this may be why she prefers to have younger commanders, as they remind her and are more similar to her son's age range.
As a woman who has lead flight wings and now leads flight formations, Julia's ability to command and guide the common rabble of military fleets is rather exceptional. Always one to try and consider her many wings, she has gained the ability to assert the “proper sacrifices” that may be required in combat and has met them with a blind staredown that warrants her experimental style being both dangerous but so unpredictable. While at the command, Julia has no regard for letting wars turn into far-off shootouts and it shows in an aggressive command-style that has her far more at friendly terms with the newer commanders than the seasoned and more cautioned older ones.
A pastime of growing strawberries and other fruits in space has forced Julia to have a fascination with the agricultural and xenofauna fields of study, allowing her to identify most plants that grow within the spectrum of Yamatai and Nepleslian-owned worlds. Her fascination ensures she understands and can identify the types of treatment that such plants would require.
Julia is connected to the following…
|Arris Sr.||Deceased||As one would expect, Julia cared for her husband greatly. Even though he has passed, she still fondly remembers him and has refused to move on to anyone else as of yet.|
|Arris Jr.||Alive||A little young prodigy, Julia cares for her son both as an individual and as a mother. The pair are often spoken of as being inseparable when they're given the time to be together, almost being over-protective of him.|
Julia Brisk has the following…
