Physical Description

This Nekovalkyrja, Type 33 has deep, dark skin. She has a complexion like coffee without cream and a deadpan stare to match it. Slightly narrow, her eyes are an icy blue and her long lashes shadow them heavily, making them a stunning sapphire. Her speech quickens as she goes along and can find herself near out of breath after a long statement or diatribe.

With hair like bubblegum and a lithe body, she stands at five and a half feet with a curvy body and petite arms and legs. Her hairstyle changes ever so often. She'll spend hours creating hundreds of fine braids or will wear it out, flowing like a waterfall to her waist.

Personality

Initially exuberant and ready and willing to smile at any given moment, she lost that luster when the 98 days were over and her nekovalkyrja boot camp friends and her parted ways. She then began her specialization in science and found a new joy in learning.

While learning the difference between sensor systems and forging a knowledge of chemistry, she found a deep love and understanding of science that usurped the pain of losing her neko friends. Studying took over her life and she became reclusive and less enthusiastic to make friends than she had been during socialization or training. Instead of developing a timidness, she became harshly over-critical of her classmates and had a knack for ruining small talk with a short-sighted comment, but engaged in deep discussion with those teaching her, finding wisdom in their words, instead of her classmates'.

There is no greater joy in life for her than to stare at the stars, deep in reverie.

History

Oshiro Masumi was born in YE 37 in the city of Tania on Planet Yamatai. She spent one year at Star Army Academy of Military & Medical Sciences, spending her extra time there specializing in science.

RP History

Upon embarking on the Eucharis, Oshiro Masumi was fitted for a Mindy 4, which she subsequently used on the Kuvexian space station that the Eucharis' away team struck. They were after a computer core and a Kuvexian technician, but communications with the Eucharis became jammed and there was little to be done. Using her leader support pack, Masumi was a part of the effort that successfully unjammed communications with the Eucharis. She also found a way to secure a technician, though they were never picked up by the fleet. The team made a jump with a computer core from the station and were then in open space. The core was destroyed in space and Masumi was hit by aether fire from a fighter.

Quote from Wes, YSS Eucharis
“…one of the fighters took advantage of her aiming for the missiles instead of them to make a pass and hit her dead on in the chest with aether weapons fire, leaving her torso area, left arm, and left side covered in blackened holes and searing pain. She could see blood globs freezing in space around her and her AIES warned her that she needed to repair the breaches.”

Masumi patched herself up well enough to survive and was picked up by the Eucharis shortly thereafter. She found her way to the Medical Bay and was taken care of quickly and efficiently.

After arriving on Yamatai, Masumi found an outlet at VCE Cafe and replayed the incident outside of the Kuvexian space station over and over, trying to get it right.

Quote from YSS Eucharis
She was out in open space once again, and the aether blast was coming at her. She was hit and the sensation of pain did not follow. She heard her name being called like she was in an echo-chamber, reverberating off of her eardrums many times before it ceased. Inhaling sharply, Masumi looked around feverishly to find the nearest Neko with something to plug the wound. The blood spooled out in front of her and froze in space. “I-I'm dying!” Masumi said, panicking that this was all happening again, that she was losing her grip on life for a second time. “I'm dying!” she appealed to them, but nobody turned to her, as incoming fire assaulted them and the Kuvexian computer core. When she looked around herself, she was affronted by the pure perplexity of it all. As she tried to come to grips with what was happening, she was hit repeatedly by fighter jet's aether fire. The words, “GAME OVER,” blinked in front of her view.

Art by Ika-Hime She went to this cafe for weeks on end, until one day she held a lengthy conversation with another crew member. They then went out to play videogames and eventually, danced together at a club in Yamatai.

Quote from YSS Eucharis
“If moving up ranks comes as an extension of doing what I can to understand the universe around me and better it, then I'll accept those laurels. What I want to do with my life is just that, understand what it is around me in the best ways possible. I want to know everything there is to know and then more. I want to see what there is to see with my mind before my eyes can. I want to look into the future just by experience, by knowing,” Masumi said as her eyes grew dusky with the concepts she put forth.

Around the same time, she met with crew members informally and got nowhere beyond saying a sorry diatribe.

Quote from YSS Eucharis
Masumi pulled out a package of nigiri and a small cut salmon skin roll, presumably all still fresh. She held it close to her chest as she spoke again. “I'm sorry I haven't been around much on the ship.” It was true, Masumi had locked herself away for most of the trip back from the Kuvexian station. Having been in the med bay for a long while had made her lose sight of the benefits of others. Then, when she was better, she had skipped meals and stayed away from any group activities. She hadn't really had much of an opportunity to socialize the same way the other Neko had been doing. She looked between the two, not knowing what response she expected, but knowing that an apology was certainly in order.

Then, at the beach party on Hanako's World, she showed more of her self-contained personality.

Quote from YSS Eucharis
When she was left alone, she dug her toes into the sand and watched the dark skin of her feet submerge beneath the gritty substance. She was wearing a bathing suit that had gotten mixed in with the haul Freyja had given her. It had a strappy design with cutouts on the upper breasts and was as light of a blue as her eyes were. She looked up at the sky as the embers dispersed into it and back across the flames, to Takao as he sang and strummed. She then shifted her gaze to the ocean. In it were the bodies of the swimmers, fluorescent fish, as well as unknowns to her. She wanted to know so much more than she did currently. So much more.

Masumi spent a lot of time with Candon on missions of his own design and his station in Westerly space during shore leave.

After a draining mission on a metal planet, she was transferred to YSS Kaiyo II and then Fort Miller, where she was to begin work on a project she knew little about. That changed while there, but soon she was pulled away from her work to go back to the Kikyō Sector in order to work on HX-14 with Lisa Alice "Thorn" Ironhart.
