Physical Characteristics

  • Height: 160cm (5'3'')
  • Mass: 47kg (105lbs)
  • Measurements: 32B-23-33

Build and Skin Color: Nora has the standard slim, athletic build common to all Nekovalkyrja thanks to genetic engineering, though she carries herself with a certain lithe grace. Her skin is a deep, rich, almost blood-red hue.

Eyes and Facial Features: Nora has almond shaped eyes that are dull gold in color. She has an oval face shape with cheek bones that are slightly more pronounced than is usual. Her nose is small and sleek, and her lips are thin and usually pursed up into a small smile.

Ears: While Nora's ears are cat-like and pointed like other Nekos, they are longer than normal, and they do not sport any fur on them.

Hair Color and Style: Nora's hair is a snowy white, and she keeps it in a tight braid going down to her shoulder blades. However, a few locks of hair always seem to escape, leaving some of her hair in hanging off to the side of her face.

Distinguishing Features: Nora's only distinguishing feature is her red skin, which, seeing as it is such an uncommon color, helps to separate her from others of her species.

Psychological Characteristics

Personality: The one word that could sum up Nora is “curious”. She was created with an insatiable appetite for learning new things and having new experiences. This curiosity is sometimes seen as juvenile, and it is true that Nora views life with child-like wonder, but it is motivated by more than just discovering “what” things are: Nora truly wants to know the “why” and “how”. Her desire to study and analyze sometimes results in her seeming aloof, like she is fully caught up in her thoughts at the expense of losing track of what is going on around her. The one thing that fascinates her most of all is studying the many different life forms that make up the Yamatai Star Empire: she loves studying the diverse anatomy and physiology present. Nora loves meeting new people, and has learned to keep her excitement at a minimum, for the sake of civility, when she meets someone of a new species.

  • Likes: Biology, meeting people, social interaction, spicy food, occasional quiet time with her anatomy books, and a good nap
  • Dislikes: Solitude, politics, horror movies, and thunderstorms
  • Goals: To see exotic, new places and eventually discover a new species


Family (or Creators)

Nora was created by the Star Army of Yamatai as a soldier.


Nora was created in YE 36 as part of Yamatai's military. Like other Nekos, she was then enlisted in the Star Army and sent for social conditioning. It was during this training that Nora first discovered her vast curiosity and her love of biology. Because of this, after her 98 days of conditioning were up, she went on to receive training as a Star Army Medical. Nora enjoyed this training particularly, because she had her first opportunities to study anatomy hands on through surgical and general healthcare training. During these 9 months, Nora received top marks in her tests and was certified as a Star Army medic. After this, she then rotated onto active duty and awaited an assignment.



After her social conditioning and basic training, Nora moved on to training for Star Army medics. She was taught what the standard medical tools and medicines used in the Star Army are, how they are used, and how to properly pack and use the standard issue first aid kits. Nora also received training on the proper use of a Portable Medical Scanner PMS-1M. Another important facet of her training revolved around the surgical techniques required to help heal wounds commonly received as a result of combat. The last part of her training revolved around maintaining the optimal health of her unit, and involved instruction in the anatomy and physiology of the various species serving in the Star Army; Nora took to this part with particular zeal.



Nora Shinako is currently a Santo Hei in the Star Army of Yamatai.
