Like most Fyunnen female warriors, the imposing Naa'taena stands at well over 7 feet tall, with an Amazonian body that while shapely in the right spots, is extremely well-muscled and toned where it really counts. She is particularly fond of showing off her rock-hard abs, and makes sure to keep them that way with a vigorous exercise routine every day. Her eyes are an intense reddish-amber color, and along with her near constant drawn, heart-shaped face speak of a smoldering soul within. Despite her young age and low rank, Naa'taena keeps her hair quite long but in a single, thick braid down to the small of her back, which makes it easy to quickly coil up inside a pilot's helmet. She usually keeps the dangling braid dyed black, though a tuft of hair sticks out defiantly in the front of her head which remains her natural white color. Her skin is a little less paler than normal, a kiss of outdoor workouts in the sun giving a nice, attractive tan coloration. Her ears are pointed Fyunnen ones, typical of the race, with a pair of onyx and metal earrings near the ends – a fine match for the pair of vestigal wings that sprout from her back, feathers taking on a similar gunmetal and black sheen as they often rest on her shoulders like the pauldrons of a suit of armor.
Naa'taena has a standard set of neural interface at the rear of her skull that allows her to interact with most Lorath technologies. Her skeletal structure has also been reinforced with metal grafts, and her muscles are partially synthetic as well, the denser fibers allowing for enhanced durability and strength in combat that can rival that of any Nekovalkyrja.
Naa'taena is a proud Fyunnen warrior, and is always willing to meet the challenges that come her way head on whether it is with her blade or her guns. Unfortunately, this can also make her a little headstrong and stubborn, and she may often resort to forceful solutions to every problem where other more subtle methods might do the trick much better. Still, she is not one would wish as a foe, for once she commits to battle with someone she is as relentless and unyielding as a bird of prey… running would also naturally be dishonorable. This mindset also extends to any compatriots that she considers like family, and she will jealously guard the “nest” should it ever be threatened. Naa'taena can be a bit harsh on those she calls friends if they show weakness, though, but this is more borne out a desire for them to be stronger and protect themselves than out of any true enmity. One-on-one, the Fyunnen can be a little gruff to deal with… but she also has a passionate side that any strong man she respects enough to take an interest in may find hard to refuse.
When engaged in mecha combat, Naa'taena often will rely on her superb heavy gunnery skills to rain down suppressive, withering fire on her foes from a distance constantly. Only when she is assured of a clean strike, will she swoop in like her namesake for the final kill. With the departure of the bulk of the Lorath from known space, she is seeking a new place to put these combat skills to the test.
Naa'taena was born on the planet Lor in YE 01, before Lor had become part of Yamatai. From an early age, it was apparent that she had the killer instinct and keen spatial awareness to be an excellent warrior, much like her mother Mes'lyn, who was styled “Hawkeye” for her superb eyesight and skill with a gun, while her father Ek'tis, a.k.a. “Thorn” was an avid, and well-traveled pugilist. This combination of excellent breeding helped the young Fyunnen breeze through her formative years, and the family was smiled upon by the Goddess to have survived the Moonfall incident roughly intact. In the midst of rapidly rebuilding their own military space force, Naa'taena was predictably drawn into preparing for military service, and set on the path of an LSDF frame pilot with haste. While she was still in training, though, news of the genocide of the Occhestian Seperatists in the north reached her and it shook her beliefs in how the Tur'lista government could slaughter their brothers and sisters so easily. Though she graduated and eventually went on to a somewhat eventful career interdicting ex-UOC smugglers and pirates near the border with Yamatai, “Raven” continued on a path much darker than before, as her angst and doubts only simmered and grew in silence over the years that followed.
Then, when the long-rumored project_checkout finally came to fruition in YE 39, Naa'taena was one of a small group of Lorath troops who were left behind in this universe when the array was activated, and in her case it was just as much by choice as by circumstance. Of course, with the Matriarchy and its government and military effectively dissolved in its home sector, and her unwillingness to migrate to Nepleslia or throw in with the liberal Asterian Lorath… the soldier was left understandably adrift about where to go. Eventually, out of pure ennui she fell in with a group of roving pirates under the command of the diminutive but ruthless young woman, Killigrew. While this sated her lust for battle somewhat, it became increasingly clear that the Fyunnen and her combat frame were simply being used as an expendable wrecking ball against their foes… a trend that was thankfully going to be broken by her fateful encounter with Alex Patton.
Naa'taena “Raven” Mildere Fyunnen has the following notable skills:
Fighting: Like many of her warrior caste, Naa'taena is proficient in all forms of martial prowess, which includes training in all standard LSDF issue weaponry… though she can also quickly adapt foreign-made weapons to her fighting style. Though mechanized combat is her specialty, she has no qualms about using her own superior size and strength to overpower her opponents when up close and personal, and is quite skilled in the fencing and pugilism branches of Lorath Hand-to-hand combat.
Leadership: Though she is young, in a combat situation, Naa'taena is not afraid to take charge. This is because Fyunnens must be trained in the workings of a leadership role; they must be able to command individuals on a one on one level, or be able to lead a full company if needed. Though she is best with squad level operations, she is capable of conversing with large groups, gathering intelligence, and being able to direct subordinates out of a dangerous tactical position.
Survival and Military Skills: Naa'taena has received the standard Fyunnen survival training, which includes being able to find their own food and water, be able to construct makeshift weapons, navigate by use of landmarks and stars overhead that are visible, construct shelters, signal for assistance, and conceal their positions.
Vehicle Piloting: Naa'taena has received training in the safe operation of a wide variety of Lorath-made combat frames such as the Whirlwind & AMX-101 WINTER both in space and on the ground, and can usually pickup the operation of foreign-made mecha units with relative ease once she has had some time to test them. She also has the ability to pilot light shuttles and aerospace craft as well, if the mission demands, though she is significantly worse at dogfighting.
Domestics: While it may seem strange, Naa'taena no exception to the fact that all Fyunnens must be trained to be able to handle their own home affairs properly. This includes preparing their own meals, handling their own laundry, providing for their children, and keeping their living space clean and efficient.
Physical: Years of training and competition has left Naa'taena with a a strong understanding of body building, how to build up different sets of muscles and a general understanding of taking proper care of herself. Her superior physical endurance allows her to walk, run, and swim for extended periods of time, as well as maintain high performance levels when inside a combat frame.
Communication: Naa'taena is skilled in the use of common communications equipment and headsets, able to rely commands effectively and stay aware of others over a distance. Like most more modern Lorath, Naa'taena has picked up a good deal of Trade recently, as well as her native Ly'thir. Though sometimes she can fail to understand certain idioms and jokes.
