Yamashiro Sakura was born in late YE 33 and attended standardized training, where she developed her personality and learned what she needed to know to serve her assignment in the Star Army. Upon completion of development and training Sakura was assigned to her first post.

RP: Operation Kōzan

Sakura's first assignment was to Legion XII, tasked with being part of a major ground assault operation against Mishhuvurthyar forces on the planet HX-13 as part of Operation Kōzan. The ground assault was supposed to be a quick and easy mop up operation as intelligence detected little enemy forces on the surface. It, of course, was not to be.

Even though Star Army forces landed in force, they were met with sudden and brutal resistance. Many of the descending drop ships were shot down by enemy anti aircraft fire, including Legion XII's drop ship. The ship was torn open from stem to stern like a can of tuna, spilling infantry and officers out as it tumbled down in flames to crash hard on the beach.

Sakura was lucky enough to hold on and not get thrown from the stricken drop ship and survived the crash relatively unscathed, which was more than could be said for many of her fellow infantry who perished in the ruined ship, or died scattered around the crater it created on impact.

Sakura picked herself up. Shaken, disoriented but alive. A few others survived and all hunkered down in a rut in the sand as hell raged around them. In a lull in the fighting, the survivors rushed from their ditch, making for a larger group of survivors that had banded together and formed a defensive base. During this charge across the bloodied beaches, Sakura fired her first shots in anger and claimed her first kills.

Making it to the safety of the others, the small rag tag unit that had survived from her drop ship were tasked with taking out an enemy anti-air installation while the larger battalion rushed the main enemy encampment. Stealth was called for and each member of the small group was sent out one at a time under optic camouflage to move into the dense jungle and meet at the rendezvous point.

When Sakura's turn came she moved in methodically, not wanting to attract the attention of any of the Mishhu in the area while she was on her own. She soon came to a clearing smashed into the jungle where another drop ship had gone down. Dead soldiers were scattered all around, but she did detect a life sign in the wrecked drop ship.

The pilot, a purple haired Nekovalkyrja named Ume, who she quickly helped out of the ruined ship. Soon a second, power armored Neko showed up, who eventually identified herself as Heisho Tachibana Inoue. Inoue stated how she felt strange and had the urge to kill Sakura and Ume and made a rush at them, forcing Sakura to defend them and shoot the Heisho. Inoue was infected by a Mishhu parasite and Sakura's shots did little to slow her down. The other dead soldiers began to stir, all infected. Natsumi grabbed blasted a headless DAISY that made for Ume, then grabbed the purple haired pilot and launched away, using her thrusters to rocket away from the crash site.

Her and Ume's escape was easy enough, with the infected soldiers in too poor shape to pursue. Soon they made it to the rendezvous point where they rejoined the others. Soon they pressed their attack on the enemy AA installation, where Sakura was seriously wounded during the fighting, bad enough to warrant her evacuation to the fleet for medical treatment once it was safe enough to get a ship up.

Once her injuries were treated she was shipped back to Yamatai for new assignment.
