Height: 5'4 Mass: 108lbs
Build and Skin Color: Eun-Kyung is quite skinny. Her curves, such as they are, are not accentuated by her build. She has some muscle, not highly developed but rather understated and efficient. Her skin is a pale white, fairer than the Yamataian average but not the stark white of an albino.
Facial Features and Eye Color: Eun-Kyung has a pretty face, though not strikingly beautiful. Her lips are full but not overly pouty. Her nose turns slightly out at the end, but not markedly so, while the bridge sinks indistinctly into her brow. Her eyes have more of a semi-circle appearance than almond and in some light her lids, particularly her lower lids, can appear quite pronounced. Her irises are a very dark brown; the contrast with her pale skin makes it very hard to distinguish the pupils from the irises.
Hair Color and Style: Eun-Kyung has pitch-black hair, with a natural part above the left eye. It is naturally wavy and when worn loose, as she normally does, it curls in slightly around her face towards the termination of its length, just below shoulder level. She has recently begun trying more practical methods of wearing her hair, like ponytails and buns.
Distinguishing Features: Aside from her very pale skin, there are few features that set Eun-Kyung apart per se. But what most of her friends and family remember is her warm smile, which always reaches her eyes. She is almost always smiling or at least grinning during social settings, showing her regular and white teeth and the start of a dimple in her right cheek.
Personality: Eun-Kyung is seemingly the ideal of a proper young woman incarnate. She is graceful, calm, collected, reserved, and unfailing polite to all whom she meets. Additionally to her friends, she is unstintingly loyal and the ultimate negotiator, constantly making sure balance is maintained and the peace is kept even in the midst of nasty, vicious arguments. But she is human, and not perfect: her intellect and highly principled nature can sometimes have her being overly stubborn. Moreover, her desire for serenity among social groups has shaped her beliefs to be somewhat absolutist; if someone upsets the order of things, they are in the wrong and it can be quite hard for her to accept extenuating circumstances or context. Her time in the Star Army itself has changed her somewhat; while never lacking in confidence, per se, her attitude now better reflects that, along with a willingness to use that confidence to convince others to get the job done.
Born a Human, and happy accident, in the YSE, Eun-Kyung was raised in a caring, warm household. Her parents retained some traditions from a long forgotten culture, similar but occasionally incongruous with the majority held traditions of the Empire. She was particularly fond of her elder brother, Eunji, who was ten years older than she. He would make time everyday to spend time and play with her, even at the cost of extra free time with his friends. As such, Eun-Kyung spent a relatively isolated early childhood, all of her companionship provided by her family.
However that changed, by force of necessity, when her brother graduated from mandatory schooling. Though he expressed regret at leaving her, she being only eight, he followed his dreams and went to work on a corporate merchant freighter. Eun-Kyung spent a year of extreme despondency, sometimes sinking into mild depressions. But when she turned ten she began to make more friends, becoming outgoing and sociable. Throughout the rest of her school days, she was counted among the most popular people, but she was not elitist and freely associated with all she came into contact with. But her parents knew that this was on some levels a pretense. To be sure, she appreciated and enjoyed her friendships with many people, but the intensity with which she studied the stars through her telescope - her eleventh birthday gift - showed that she longed to follow her brother into space.
It was clear that what was expectable to her parents for her elder brother to do would not be for her; there was no chance they would allow her to sign on with a merchant crew upon graduation. As such, she worked very hard in and out of school to win appointment to an academy. Her days in the academy were perforce stressful and at times demeaning, but she could always be satisfied that she was up to the challenge and working towards fulfilling her goals. Finally finished with her formal education in YE 31, Eun-Kyung looked forward eagerly to her midshipman cruise and future service among the stars.
Rendezvousing with the Seventh Squadron at the Virgo Star Fortress, Eun-Kyung successfully completed an interview with the Captain of the YSS Aeon, Ise Katae-Taii, and was accepted into the ship's company. The new crew embarked on a series of train exercises, designed to simulate ship- and armor- based. Eun-Kyung took part and even took the Aeon's command chair for a short while. During the subsequent emergency action in assistance of the YSS Eucharis, Eun-Kyung spent much of the battle unconscious in a maintenance conduit. She emerged with no worse than a nasty knot on her head and assisted with damage control in Engineering. Upon the ship's arrival in Kyoto, she began the brief liberty period with an attempt to deliver a priority message to the director of SATA. However, she was almost immediately kidnapped by an unknown party of traitors in Star Army uniforms. Rather than surrender her charge, she fired her NSP on burst while still holstered, stopping the attempted kidnapping but at the cost of extensive burns across her body. After recuperating in the hospital, Eun-Kyung was attached for temporary duty with the YSS Integrity before returning to the Aeon in the midst of its next mission.
Not long after completing the mission, Eun-Kyung returned to the Integrity, this time permanently, as she served for the next two years as a bridge officer under Taii Tso Ruiko and alongside many former Aeon shipmates. Eventually, Eun-Kyung requested a return to the Aeon. While the position of Executive Officer had been filled in her absence, she was elated to be back aboard under Ise-Taisa and alongside many of her former shipmates.
Eun-Kyung is familiar with basic radio operations and procedures and can make transmission to and receive transmission from others through headsets, starships, power armor, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. Eun-Kyung is fluent in Nepleslian and Yamataian, and has knowledge of a few traditional phrases learned from her parents. She can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc. In addition, she is skilled in communicating telepathically
Eun-Kyung received hand-to-hand combat training, followed up with a rigorous training program. She is skilled and experienced both in Yamatai-like conditions and in zero-gravity, with and without weapons. Weapons she is trained in include energy pistols, knives, and power armor.
Eun-Kyung is capable of operating any computer system that uses the Kessaku OS, found on all Star Army starships. She is proficient in entering and/or searching for information.
Eun-Kyung received basic mathematics training, including algebra, geometry, calculus, and more.
Eun-Kyung received education on topics including the history of the Star Army and legal theory and application in the Yamatai Star Empire during her time in the academy.
Eun-Kyung received training in public speaking and making presentations. Additionally, her occasional propensity to stubbornly assert her point of view has given her occasion to practice and hone her public speaking skills, particularly in terms of debating.
Eun-Kyung received training in starship operations and is qualified to serve at any bridge station aboard a Star Army starship. In addition to her formal training, she spent many years in her youth charting her brother's voyages across known space and attempting to follow his path through visual stellar identification and cartography, though limited to her view point on a planetary surface.
