Mari is a Nekovalkyrja that was, interestingly enough, born from another Nekovalkyrja. Given the choice between civilian life and active service, Mari chose active service. Aside from her mother, Kou Tanaka, she views her squad as family.
Born to a Nekovalkyrja, Mari was able to actually grow up from a youngling state, but, despite Yamataian laws giving her a chance to live a purely civilian life, she chose to join active service. after undergoing the necessary training, she was placed in a squad in the Fifth fleet.
Mari, like the other members of her squad, is well-versed in power armor combat, as well as all the basic skills required of a Nekovalkyrja. She is extremely fit, and can run at a high speed for a rather long time, as well as swim, jump, climb, and otherwise use her body in active ways, much more naturally than even a normal Nekovalkyrja. Mari is also skilled at talking too much.
