Personality: Mion tried to put the popular smile and cheerfulness that many in Yamatai serve with, but just under the surface lies deep regret that she was born in the wrong nation. Finding the cultures and regulations of Yamatai to be strangling, she prefers a more wild and open life within the Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia. She tries to emulate what she's seen of Nepleslian culture through movies, shows, and books albeit with some heavy-handedness.
A major concern of hers is the possibility of being taken in for “re-socialization training.” While she'd never admit this openly, the constant feeling of being under surveillance by literally everything puts her ill at ease around her peers. She rarely trusts them beyond her what's needed to survive. The only times she feels like she can open up emotionally is during the heat of battle or a dance floor.
Mion Yamaguchi was born in YE 40 in one of the mass production facilities in the Star Army Fleet Depot located on Planet Nataria. During her socialization training, she showed a lacking interest to many of the courtesies and culture of Yamatai but was amazed by the brash and independent depiction of Nepleslia. She barely managed to scrape by socialization training before moving onto basic training.
Through basic training, Mion excelled in combat training and survival training, secretly owing her tenacity to her growing Nepleslian sentiment. However, seeing some of the other recruits wash out for psychological reasons raised some concern that she might get sent back for reeducation. Once basic training was completed, she signed up for ranger training on the hopes of spending most of her career away from the confines of ship service or the tedium of base duties. Here she learned her aptitude for using handheld explosives and the launchers for them. Being to enjoy her service out in the wilderness away from Big Sister felt like a blessing.
