Physical Description

Aya has a fairly average slim body and stands at a short 4’6” with a pretty face when not covered in a layer of grime, she has bright blue eyes and long white hair that’s tied back in a functional ponytail when she’s working and let down when not. Owing to her Daur blood she has a pair of large white fox ears that sit atop her head and a long fluffy tail with a black tip. However her white hair is usually stained with various brown and black stains because of her job.


Aya has an outgoing attitude and despite having her potty mouth and general apathy towards officers ironed out during training she inherited her father's habit of talking to and sometimes swearing excessively at the ship when it doesn’t work properly. Despite being a Daur she doesn’t consider herself to have any relation to her species beyond her looks, after all she’s only ever know life within Yamatai with no knowledge of Neshaten culture beyond what she’s been told by various people curious enough to ask her why she isn’t there instead. She is easily flustered during more intimate situations however and struggles to act feminine as she was without a mother figure in her childhood. She especially likes having her ears petted.

Can be a bit stubborn at times when it comes to working on the ship, making it hard for her to follow advice when she believes her way is better although most of the time she will come around eventually if she is suitably convinced. However anything her father directly taught her to do is like gospel and she is impossible to convince to do something in a different way than her father taught her, even if there is a better way to do it.


Brought up in the military by her engineer father, either living on The Northern Star, the now scrapped Ayame class heavy cruiser her father served on, or the space stations it operated from. Her father left the Neshaten military after growing tired of the attitude towards him from his Laibes captain despite his engineering skills, the newly discovered (at the time) Yamatai Star Empire accepted an engineer of his caliber with open arms.

After her mother passed away in an accident when she was a baby her father was forced to alternate between looking after his daughter and being the head engineer of the huge heavy cruiser, often having to combine the two which lead to Aya’s initial interest in engineering by watching him and causing her to develop a mean sailor mouth as a side effect. As she grew into a teenager she continued to study engineering while hanging around The Northern Star as much as the captain allowed a civilian child aboard, even if she was the child of the head engineer the rules could only be bent so far.

As soon as she was able, she signed up to the military and was whisked away to basic training. Aya’s motivation comes from her relationship of friendly competition with her dad, determined to meet and surpass the rank he’s achieved, aiming to become the head engineer of a heavy cruiser or even a battleship.
