Born originally on Yamatai, Akira and her Nepleslian parents moved to Neplelsia for reasons she was never really curious about. She remained there surviving until she enlisted into the Star Army of Yamatai in YE 23 as a member of the infantry corps. Something her parents were completely against from the start. And for good reasons since she right out of basic training Akira was sent directly to the lines against the Elysians. One of her more memorable events of the war for her was encountering an Elysian Plebian medic. He tried to go straight to hand to hand with her squad, but eventually tripped. Akira knocked him unconscious, tried him up, and left him in some bushes after the squad cleaned up the rest of the Elysians
Even as a simple Santo Hei, she displayed a lot of leadership potential. On more then one occasion she had to take over when either her team leader was either killed or simply froze up. That got the attention from more senior commanders and by the end of the conflict, Akira has moved up to the rank of Nito Heisho.
Akira briefly was discharged from the Star Army of Yamatai, returning back home to Neplesia to take care of her parents. Both had become ill while she was on the war front. Doctors told her there was not much for them to do other then make the two of them comfortable until they died. They died before the onset of the First Mishhuvurthyar War. With no need to be in the chaos of the planet, Akira proceeded back to Yamatai to enlist again once word of the war reached her ears.
Against an alien species that was both alien and strong to her, Akira's natural leadership and skills were constantly put to the test. Despite her attempts to keep her subordinates alive, she would lose more than half her squad in direct assaults against the Mishhuvurthyar. She soon found she had more of a niche for more irregular types of attacks harassing and paralyzing them. Utilizing and training smaller size units within her command, she found it much easier to do things in such a way.
When the Species Restriction Order came down in the later part of the war, Akira immediately got herself transferred into a NH-29 Nekovalkyrja body. One she viewed it as an advantage as she was not capable of doing much now. But the fear of dying the same way her parents had died was also a large driving factor as well. At the end of the First Mishhuvurthyar War, Akira had manged to rise to Santo Juni. But the rank was only a temporary one as she was tapped for officer training to become a Centurion.
Graduating in YE 32 from the Kyoto War College, Akira was tapped to temporarily command the newly commissioned YSS Truth's Vengeance gaining for some unique experience. Once a proper commander was available, she received another temporary reassignment to the YSS Sakura II as an infantry officer. Afterwards, she received orders to various legions leading as a centurion or platoon leader depending on personnel levels allowing someone of her rank to lead as a centurion. Despite her performance, no real promotion opportunities ever presented themselves.
Eventually she grew frustrated and decided to take up a position as an infantry training section leader. At the very least she can supervise the molding of the Star Army's future soldiers.
At YE 39 9月, she received orders assigning her as the infantry wing commander of Task Force Inquistion's flagship, the YSS Orochi. She was not entirely sure the orders were valid initially until she had them verified by PANTHEON. So much for riding it out to retirement. After a stint with Task Force Inquisition, Akira found herself sent over to Legion XX as a centurion once more.
Late YE 41, she returned to training with a transfer to the Zenjinkaze Fighting High School on Yamatai after her graduation from the School of Advanced Infantry Combat. She had successfully striked for one of the limited slots for existing solders of the SAoY. Though she had to take it twice after failing during the fly phrase when she made a critical mistake, resulting in her capture by cadre. A mistake she does not intend to repeat ever again.
