Member of Mikasa family
Sorano was born on Planet Yamatai in YE 03 to her parents Amida, and Etsu Mikasa. She was born NH-1 Geshrin. While serving in the SAoY she would upgrade to the NH-17 Nekovalkyrja in YE 23 to be a better soldier. Later on she upgraded again to the NH-29 in YE 29.
Sorano's family lived in Pagoda no Uesureya. Her father, Amida, was a soldier, and her mother stayed at home to take care of her and her little brother. Sorano was your typical military brat, and quite the tomboy. She got into her fair share of fights, something that Etsu was greatly displeased with. Sorano got her love of flying from her father; when he was home on leave he would take her flying in his personal aircraft. In YE 14 at the age of 11, Sorano lost her father during the Second Elysian War. His death had a profound affect on her, and she vowed to one day serve the Empire as her father had.
Needing to provide for the family; her mother, Etsu, became an employee of PNUgen Corporation and in YE 18 the family moved to Ketsurui no Iori when her mother transferred jobs to Ketsurui Zaibatsu. During this time, Sorano had to take care of her brother Kisho as well as attend classes.
Even before Sorano's preliminary education came to a close in YE 21 she started making inquiries about the military. On the day of her graduation Sorano signed up to enlist in the newly formed Star Army of Yamatai. It was during this time she displayed an aptitude for fighters, both atmospheric and space. During the Fourth Elysian War in YE 23 she was promoted to Shoi and given command of her own fighter squadron. In YE 25 Sorano served aboard a Kyoto-class Carrier and commanded a wing of fighters along with being promoted to Taii. During the start of the first Mishhuvurthyar in YE 26 her unit was frequently in the thick of combat normally providing support for battle groups.
During YE 27 Sorano continued to climb the ranks, in part due to her skills, and due to the heavy losses the Star Army of Yamatai experienced during the protracted campaign at Xyainbor. In YE 28 she rose to the rank of Taisa and was given command of her first carrier, a Byakko-class carrier.
In YE 29 Sorano chose to upgrade to a NH-29 body to better serve the Star Army of Yamatai. She also was promoted to Shôshô and given command of her own battle group. She would lead her group through many battles until the end of the war against the Sfrarabla Mishhuvurthyar Xhrafuklurp (SMX) in YE 30.
At the start of YE 31 Sorano was considering either taking an assignment as the Commandant of one of the Star Army of Yamatai training centers or retiring. However, she discarded that idea when the Second Mishhuvurthyar War broke out. Later she was assigned to the position of Taisho of the Second Expeditionary Fleet.
YE 33 Sorano visited Veronica aboard the YSS Yamato to observe the installation of 2XF defenses for the system. In the Fifth month of the year, the 2XF launched a major assault against the NMX forces blockading the North Gate.
