Ragnhildr Asakaki is a slender NH-33 Tennyo of toned musculature with soft, peach- colored skin and elf-style ears (chosen at a whim). Her round face is decorated with almond-shaped, teal eyes, a slightly-pointed nose, and mildly pouty lips. Her cotton candy-pink hair, but leaves a slight fringe that ends just above her pencil-thin eyebrows (mostly to hide a slightly large forehead), and is normally styled into a pair of braided pigtails in the back. She only reaches a height of 5'5“ (165.1 cm) and weighs nearly 103 lbs (46.7 kg).
Ragnhildr, or Hild by those on friendly terms with her, is definitely a strange one. When on-duty, she's a rather cool individual that rarely speaks. Her preference towards listening to a conversation thoroughly before entering makes her seem the calculating type of individual. However, her personality changes drastically in a combat situation.
In combat, she's more of the 'charging-in', hot-blooded individual with a penchant for lightning warfare. Relying upon both mobility and firepower, Ragnhildr is a hard Captain to reign in when the torpedoes start flying. Willing to stick to the plan made by her superiors, she will not hesitate to 'improvise' at a moments notice. This has put her at odds with squadron commanders that are more controlling and/or micromanaging.
Off-duty, she tends to shift her personality in another direction. With a mixture of intellectual curiosity and hedonism, Ragnhildr can often found alone with a good book or in the presence of pleasant company.
Born a NH-17R as reinforcements during the Fourth Elysian War (circa YE 24), she began life as an Infantry woman. Never quite standing out, yet never shirking from her duties, Ragnhildr slowly climbed up the ranks. Upon receiving permission to attend the Kyoto War College Officer Training Program, she shifted her focus to Ship Tactics and Tactical Operations.
Upon graduating, she went on to serve as a Tactical Officer on board a Yui-class Scout as the First Mishhuvurthyar War began. Being promoted twice over the course of that war, Ragnhildr would eventually command her own vessel, a Sakura-class Light Gunship as a Taii. Attached to one of the Gunship Squadrons of the First Expeditionary Fleet, under the command of a Taisa Ishikawa Junko.
Poor Junko was a micromanaging type of squadron commander and found out that her new, highly professional Taii was not as calm and collected as she thought. In the Squadron's first skirmish, Ragnhildr saw an opportunity and broke out of Junko's careful laid out formation part way through the battle. While the skirmish ended with the destruction of the small SMX force, the Squadron Commander was livid. Yet, even with scoldings and threats of demotion, Ragnhildr continued her “independent” actions. Of course, the times when she did follow orders to the letter were overshadowed by these instances. Finally, Junko was so fed up with her “renegade” that she sent Ragnhildr and her Sakura Gunship to an entirely different Squadron. This squadron commander saw opportunity where Junko saw insubordination and kept Ragnhildr as her trump card.
Soon Ragnhildr's luck ran out as her vessel was destroyed at the end of the First Mishhuvurthyar War during an encounter with superior SMX forces. Ragnhildr was later Soul Transfered into a new body, but didn't take command of a new ship. With the end of the First Mishhuvurthyar War, there wasn't a need for more ship captains. Instead, Ragnhildr was relegated to a teaching position at the Kyoto War College for a Foreign Cultures course. There, she stayed until Battle of Yamatai. With the need for every individual to defend the homeworld, Taii Ragnhildr Asakaki was placed in command of a Ayame-class Cruiser as part of the Yamatai Central Defense Fleet.
For her participation in the battle (as well as her survival), Ragnhildr was promoted to Shosa. Given her experience and her penchant to operate independently when needed, she was requested by Shôshô Morioka Naoko to command the YSS Korifumi, an Urufu-Class Light Cruiser.
