Nana is a Neko of average height with a curvy build – a larger than typical bust, wide 'child-bearing' hips and long, shapely legs. Her skin is a pallid coral pink in hue, free from blemish or mark, and turns a vivid shade of melon red when she blushes.
She appears an older teenager at first glance, pale silvery blue eyes wide with a faint upward slant, large, but not unsettling, and are usually downcast. The tip of her slim, button nose comes to a slightly snubbed point, with a tendency to wrinkle when she's displeased (…which is far too much.). Her lips are not exceptionally full, though the lower does have a slightly pronounced pout to it. While she is cute, she usually has an unbecoming expression of pensiveness or boredom on her face.
Nana's hair is a startling, cotton-candy pink color, which falls straight to the small of her back and is silky to the touch, fading into a bright, birthday cake blue as it reaches her bangs, which are usually parted before her eyes and swept behind her peach-fuzzed feline ears.
While a look at the vividly colored hair and bright eyes will lead one to believe she is happy-go-lucky or bubbly, Nana is unusually quiet and reserved. She has the habit of seemingly appearing out of nowhere, softspoken and sedate with little reason to grow excited.
Her intelligence lies mostly in the field of machinery (though, as of late she's grown more than a little less fond of such.) It's thought that the time she spends around machines has made her less sensitive to human emotion at times, making social interactions awkward. When it comes to other things besides mechanics, she can be called a bit of a slacker.
Nana is a technophile, plain and simple. Power cords, regulation modules, even the most seemingly mundane pieces of technology – she loves them, and she lusts over them. It is not uncommon for her to turn a piece of tech into a sex toy, one of her more well-hidden secrets, and because of this some people think her to be sexually repressed. However, she cannot function without some form of person-to-person contact, and finds the sound of another's voice soothing. Because of this, she sometimes speaks to machines, her most favored having been the Asamoya's MEGAMI due to the fact that 'she' spoke back and would engage in light conversation.
Outside of Engineering or her quarters, Nana is surprisingly quiet, blending in with the crowds and not saying much. Her sometimes eccentric behavior is something she worries about, to the point of paranoia – she is scared to death of being thought of as little more than a defective heap of junk, so in times of stress, she works herself to the breaking point, and while this may seem like a dangerous thing for someone fixing up a starship, she seems to function excellently under pressure.
Lately, however, and with the departure of her ex-crewmates for parts unknown, Nana has grown bitter, wary of everything around her. As though all those months of ignoring her surroundings in favor of a steady work environment have come crashing down upon her head, she's as lost and confused as a newborn babe and beginning to question her own existence, and it has become a fixation.
* When finding something that she likes, she will focus on it to the point of obsession.
* Easily distracted, and sometimes comes off as being flightier than she actually is.
* Thrives on affection and attention, especially of the physical sort. Grows sullen and depressed during long periods of isolation, despite her tendency to place herself into it; only one of many of her masochistic tendencies.
* Often prefers machines as company as opposed to people.
* Purrs when happy, excited, in pain, or scared.

Nana was, like many, a stock organism created for the purpose of a militaristic lifestyle. From the day she was created, she excelled in her training as a technical sentry, though her eccentric behaviors and reluctance (refusal was not an option.) to work alongside her peers was cause for concern, it was not deemed any sort of immediate hindrance to her as a soldier and she was given the O.K. for duty. She was first assigned to the YSS Plumeria, doing general maintenance, but was soon ordered upon an Irim-class Heavy Gunship with Kessah Inonori and Yuriko Towa. It was then that they went into battle with the Mishhu, and both their ship, the Bumblebee, and the Plumeria, were destroyed.
Nana was then assigned to the YSS Asamoya where she had been working for a while after. After a run-in with a Mishhu ship, Nana was attacked and raped by a Ghost Misshuvurthyar, which left her seemingly more on-edge than she had been previously. The experience didn't, in her eyes, haunt her as much as she felt it would, but she did grow fairly withdrawn afterwards and there was a definite change that was noted by her crewmates. Neither hide nor hair of Nana would be seen about the ship for some time to come. Mealtimes ignored, sleep neglected … it was quite difficult to say just what had become of the pink-haired Neko.
After all was said and done, Nana's lack of communication or interaction with her crewmates from then on would leave her stunned when they had all seemingly vanished – taken off to pursue different destinies, leaving Nana alone with Sakura Cherry – they'd soon wind up on the YSS Eucharis, the last of the Asamoya's crew. Since then, Nana has been there, seeking answers, some sort of comfort, and a reason to continue on.
Communication: Nana is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other characters through headsets, starships, power armor, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. She is fluent is English and Japanese, and, being a Neko, she is familiar with telepathy, allowing her to communicate even when silent, though this is typically only used during dire situations, data transfer, or intimate sharing.
Fighting: She has received hand-to-hand combat training, followed up with a rigorous training program. She is skilled and experienced in combat both in Yamatai-like conditions and in zero-gravity, with and without weapons. Weapons she is trained in include energy pistols, knives, and power armor.
Technology Operation: Nana is capable of operating any computer system that uses the Kessaku OS, found on all Star Army starships. She is proficient in entering and/or searching for information.
Mathematics: Nana has received basic mathematics training, to including up to algebra and trigonometry.
Engineering: Along with fixing, she is knowledgeable on how things work, and is often coming up with ways to improve upon already existing designs.
Maintenance and Repair: Nana has been trained to learn the ins and outs of different machinery and know how to efficiently keep it up-to-date and in top condition, as well as fixing anything that may be broken.
Entertainment: Nana is able to play the harmonica, emulating old-world 'Blues' sounds to a degree. She has also recently taken up sleight of hand tricks, usually with her own tools, though she practices with playing cards.
