Hitohoshi is tall for a Neko, standing at 165cm (5'5“) tall. Her three sizes (BWH) are 35B-27-36. She sports a light red skin tone, hinting at orange, with rounded yellow eyes and lightly orange-furred ears. Her hair is blonde, and is tied back behind her ears, flowing down to about the middle of her back. She often wears black gloves with a fancy yellow symbol on the backs: a sun symbol consisting of eight triangles around a circle, where the circle has a smaller circle taken out of it to form a crescent moon shape, and a five-pointed star rests in the opening. This symbol is her “mark”, and she puts it on her possessions whenever she can.
Hitohoshi is analytically focused, interested in the “how” and “why” of the world more than the “what”. Mathematical and scientific knowledge come easily to her, while things like history and art are more of a challenge. She can sometimes have difficulty recalling the names of people she's met or places she's been, unless they particularly stand out in her mind for one reason or another, such as frequent interactions or visits, or particularly notable tattoos or markings.
Hitohoshi isn't lazy per se, but if something doesn't catch her interest, she can find it difficult to get up the motivation to pursue it. When she does find something of interest, however, she tends to dedicate long hours to studying it from various angles and in various ways, eager to learn all she can. When performing any sort of task, she tends to prefer to keep to one thing until she's finished, rather than hopping back and forth between tasks, though if there is downtime involved, she will happily fill that downtime with secondary tasks.
In recent months, Hitohoshi has begun to develop an interest in emotions, and what can cause them to darken or improve. In particular, she had little exposure to the darker human emotions during her initial training, and is very keen on learning more about what brings them about and causes them to depart. In her attempts to study such phenomena, Hitohoshi finds herself unintentionally drawn towards people with serious, deep-rooted psychological issues, the kind that cannot be easily “cured”, and will persist through her attempts to study them.
Tsuki Hitohoshi was born in YE 38.
Hitohoshi received the standard soldier training all Type 33 Nekos go through, then went into a focus in Science, where she trained for an additional 9 months. On her first mission with the YSS Sakura II, she got her first taste of genuine space warfare. This involved managing several different tasks over the course of the mission, from her seat on the bridge, though the task that sticks out most in her memory was one where she took control of the ship's guns. Near the end of the battle, she was told to fire on the enemy as they attempted to flee. While she was given the option of simply relegating control to her commander and letting him do the dirty work, and while it did make her feel uneasy, she saw the attack through to the end. She has also attended a couple of seasonal events with the rest of the crew, which she enjoyed very much, though these had little lasting impact on her.
Tsuki Hitohoshi is connected to: Nobody. She is very lonely. Hitohoshi has no family outside the military, and has not yet made any notable friends. While she has met and interacted with much of the crew of the YSS Sakura II, she has yet to form much of a bond with any of them.
Hitohoshi has received the standard Star Army communications training, including basic training in the use of a radio and other communication technology, the languages of Trade and Yamataigo (spoken and written), and basic form-filling and report-filing procedures. During advanced scientific training, she also studied cryptography.
Hitohoshi has received the standard Star Army combat training, including training in both Yamatai-like and zero-gravity environments, using bare hands, energy pistols, knives, and power armor.
Hitohoshi has plenty of experience with the Kessaku OS, found on all Star Army starships. She has also dabbled in a few other, similar OSes, and can create some code of her own using common programming languages. She is an efficient typist, and has familiarity with entering and/or searching for data in a database or other system. Hitohoshi has also received training with the various technological equipment that can be found onboard a standard Star Army vessel, allowing her to operate and maintain most systems, particularly the scanners.
Hitohoshi has received the standard Star Army mathematics training, up to and including algebra and trigonometry. In her advanced training, she has taken this notably further, studying introductory calculus, including derivation and integration, with some minor study into set theory, as well as sequences and series.
Hitohoshi's field of greatest interest, she has received advanced scientific training, with her focus being in computer science. She has studied various common programming languages, and is skilled with coding and understanding algorithms. She has had limited exposure to AI systems, but understands the theory behind them. She also has knowledge of physical and social sciences, with basic understand of biological science, though she has not trained nearly as heavily in these areas.
Tsuki Hitohoshi has the following items:
12 pairs of black, conductive-fiber (touchscreen-compatible) gloves, with Hitohoshi's moon-sun-star symbol on the backs in yellow.
A paper fox mask, won at a festival.
