Jalen Sune is a man who finds that he has more in common with the Nekovalkyrja than he does with his own species. He is a full grown man but only has fourteen years of life experience.
When Sune woke up aboard the ship, he had no memories of how he came to be in the pod. In fact he had no memories of life before his revival. But he could speak and understand Trade (language) and Yamataigo (邪馬台語). The only conclusion the families aboard the Bouken could come to was that Sune had been in some sort of catastrophe given the damage to the pod he was in, and was suffering from amnesia.
Every day when he would first meet the people, they would ask if his memory had returned. When he would say no, they usually would say “Soon eh?” in a hopeful inflection. As the days turned into weeks, and weeks into months, it became more unlikely to him that he would get his memory back. So feeling the need for a given name he took the expression that had been said to him hundreds of times and turned it into Sune (pronounced Sū-nā).
As time went on, the matter of a family name became a concern to him. He was learning to deal with people when the Bouken would dock, and the lack of a surname would often result in embarrassing and frustrating questions. So one day, he had the people on the Bouken come up with suggestions and write them on a slip of paper, with their name on the back. There were two young boys on the Bouken, Jason or Jay as he was known 10, and Leonard (Len) 9. These younger members of the family had worked together to come up with a suggestion from their favorite stories. They wrote their idea and wrote their name on the back. Jay when folding it had folded it backwards so that their names were inside the paper. So when Sune saw Jay Lenn he thought it was a suggestion. Even after it was revealed he decided to stay with it, but changed the writing to Jalen. His young friends really liked the fact that he had taken their names as his.
From that time forward he was known to those on the ship as Jalen Sune.

Personality: Sune loves solving puzzles, and reading books, preferably in print. At anytime you will find either a novel or a puzzle book in his hand or nearby. However, he is not a bookworm and enjoys spending time with friends and comrades. Sune tends to see things as a puzzle to be solved, whether it is diagnosing a patient, or accomplishing an assigned task. He sees himself as a work in progress. Sune is no longer the easy going person he was when he first boarded the Eucharis. He smiles less often, and is more guarded with making more than professional relationships.
Sune enjoys meeting people, and exploring new places. Book stores are a favorite place for him to search for. As well as exploring interesting fauna for possible medical applications. Sune's feelings for Hanako have grown from friendship to love.
Sune does not like people who intentionally do self-destructive things in the name of fun.
Goals: Sune no longer has long term goals. His experiences have taught him that it is best to focus on short term, measurable goals. To this end he focuses on protecting the Empire, defeating the NMX, and protecting his friend Hanako.
The recent chain of events involving his departure from the YSS Eucharis to the Black Knights, have caused Sune to examine his personal principles and beliefs. He has chosen to firmly embrace his core belief in the Empire, the Law, the Star Army its Regulations. He will live and die by those principles, and serve as an example to his crew and those who come to know him.
YE 28-Jan Sune was stolen from a Mass Cloning Facility, Type 30 where his NH-22C Yamtaian body was produced. He had only received basic programming when he was taken. The ship that was transporting his pod was attacked by pirates and heavily damaged. His pod was ejected and he drifted for several days.
Eventually a merchant ship, the Bouken, happened upon his pod and they revived him. The traders believed in everyone pulling their weight, and Sune found himself doing whatever tasks no one else wanted on the ship. Sune lived with the merchants for sixteen months. He became friends with the ship owners daughter Raia, and he struck up a friendship with the ship's medic and he started assisting the medic. Eventually the trader ship arrived at planet where a Yui Class Scout ship (Ki-D2-4g), YSS Yaiba, was on planet. Sune took his leave of the merchants, and contacted the commander of the scout ship.
Sune provided the records from his pod and asked to be returned to a Star Army base. The Commander of the scout vessel agreed. While traveling on the scout ship he occupied himself with reading any books he could find, and working with the ship’s medic. When they eventually arrived at their home base, Jalen went through debriefing.
