Build and Skin Color: She's tall and skinny with smooth, milky white skin. Lean and athletic, with a slightly bottom-heavy look due to her small chest.
Eyes and Facial Features: She has wide, slightly tilted, light blue eyes. They're often accented with wide swaths of bright pink eye shadow.
Ears: Her ears are short and rather small, generally lost in her mane of hair. They're a matching pink.
Hair Color and Style: Tru's long, neon pink hair is a wild mess, reaching her rear and puffing up noticeably above her head. It is generally untamed, and stuffing it into a helmet can sometimes be a hassle.
Distinguishing Features: She tends to sport holographic 'makeup' whenever she's not in the field. This includes eye shadow and lipstick, as well as face paint. She favors pink, although the colors are always blisteringly bright.
Personality: Truly Truly's outrageous. She's loud, bright, energetic and upbeat. The Neko is always up for a party, ready to help out (even if her assistance is unneeded) and eager to please. She likes to move fast, live on the edge and tends to crash hard.
Created by the Star Army in 6/33.
Tru went through her early training without a hitch, and was selected for specialized training as a pilot. It was during that time that she met Caramel Tart and Soga “Crasher” Tama. Although not actually created in the same batch, they consider themselves sisters. Their young lives were changed after attending their first live concert during a short leave. Immediately deciding they wanted to be musicians as well as pilots, they spent their scant free time after graduation practicing instruments and writing songs.
As a farewell surprise as they were transferring out of one of their first assignments, the trio played a short concert for their fellow pilots under the name Venus and the Avatars. Although they were nervous and had little experience, the experiment was a surprising success. Their passion, both for music and the Yamatai people and planet they sang about, endeared them to their fellow soldiers. The performance went viral, and they were met at their next post by a small mob of music producers. Signing with Hoshihikari Studios, they worked to record their first album during their limited free time.
Finally, just as all three Neko were celebrating their first birthdays, their album was released. The self-titled Venus and the Avatars went Galactic Platinum, due to the popularity of such songs as “My Girlfriend is a Pilot” and “(Neko Are) Truly, Truly, Truly Courageous” and their bright, energetic videos. They were shuffled from unit to unit, sometimes as an excuse to schedule them to perform and other times in an attempt to avoid excess attention, briefly serving on the YSS Soyokaze in YE 36.
Mel (synth saxophone/backup vocals) was originally a fairly tall Neko, but willingly converted to a NH-33M (Miniature) to better fit in once she was assigned to the Takamagahara. This was also encouraged by the management of Hoshihikari Studios, who felt it would increased the group's 'cute' factor and help them further stand out from other acts, while endearing them to the crew as well as Minis throughout Yamatai. She is now 8 inches (20.3 cm) tall, with apple red skin and brown hair with white highlights, that is worn in a tall mohawk that adds another inch (2.5 cm) to her height. She is laid back compared to the other two, and tends to observe situations carefully. Caramel is also known to subtly manipulate her friends into silly situations or subject them to friendly teasing. She is related to Kiwi and Pecan Tart. Her current rank is Ittô Hei.
Gaining her nickname from an abbreviation (Ga-chan, crash) as well as her tendency to fly directly into people/objects/etc. while distracted, Crasher (synth drums, not allowed to sing) has always been a Mini. Standing 6 1/2 inches (16.5 cm) tall, she has very lightly tanned skin and bright, neon blue hair with black highlights, styled in a sharp bob. She is exceedingly energetic and always up for adventure. Her mouth tends to work faster than her brain, which often gets her into trouble. Her favorite word is 'totally' and she considers everyone her friend, which has helped her popularity but gotten her into trouble with some of the group's more eager fans. Her current rank is Ittô Hei.
