Physical Description

Kaoru is a typical Nekovalkyrja with alabaster skin that tinges a light pinkish blush in her cheeks. She has sky blue hair with frosted metallic pink highlights at the tips that are generally cut short so it just frames her face. Her form is very feminine, with petite youthful features. Much like her mother, Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko, she is very expressive of her emotions through her body language. In YE 43, Kaoru updated her appearance by changing her hair color to a dark purple color. She frequently changes her personal style, following the latest fashion trends. When outside of the Star Army of Yamatai she frequently wears more provocative attire.

Psychological and Personality

Kaoru tends to be very analytical and is very thorough both on and off duty. She is demanding of others, following the deeply entrenched command philosophies of Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko. Kaoru's mental process is grounded in her firm belief of the Motoyoshi Clan Traditions and Philosophies. She is a caring and compassionate person who tends to be very protective of those she cares about. When cornered or faced with critique she can become very bombastic, and at times lets her temper get the best of her. She is very social and outgoing and is quick to jump at any opportunity to have fun. Outside of the Star Army of Yamatai, Kaoru has developed an image as a party girl, often appearing at parties and social events connected to her leadership of the YTP Entertainment group, Midnight Infinity.

She finds the propaganda that exists as a result of the Motoyoshi Clan splitting in YE 30 to be disgusting, and tends to be rather abrasive to those who believe it. At times, she can be very unforgiving and can hold a grudge indefinitely without any worries of corrupting her own ethical beliefs. She has been indoctrinated into her clan, and rarely questions the validity of those beliefs. She finds generalized false views of the clan such as claims that all Motoyoshi Clan members betrayed the Yamatai Star Empire to be a ridiculous accusation, as that the majority of the clan and its tributary families remained in the Empire. Many of which have suffered persecution and false accusations as a result.

Motoyoshi Kaoru is very social, she loves an excuse to gather and engage in fun or simple interactions with just about anyone. In terms of romantic relationships, she is polyamourous and promiscuous.

Notable characters she has engaged in romantic interests with:


Music, Dancing, singing and choreography. She loves Yamataian pop, but enjoys fusions from various genres. She enjoys extreme sports, water sporting, and activities, vacations on paradise planets. She enjoys the high life and is very expressive of her success.


People who can't make up their minds, boring people, liars. She dislikes pork and beef.

Service Records


In early YE 34, while the Seventh Fleet was deployed to the Cellondora System, Taisho Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko and Taisa Motoyoshi Misato Kage Yaichiro decided to oversee the production of a NH-33 (Tennyo) that was to become a daughter to them, and heiress to the Motoyoshi Clan. Opting out of natural pregnancy for various personal reasons, the two contributing upper echelon officers overseen everything from Kaoru's appearance, to the initial socialization training she received. Finding that the new Nekovalkyrja, fit their expectations they released her into the trust of the Kyoto War College - In Field Study Program, on Hotaru Star Fortress. Passing the War College's programs successfully, she was groomed for her first field assignment.

Later in YE 34, Kaoru requested transfer to the YSS Sakura II, First Expeditionary Fleet, to serve in the field of Star Army Starship Operator. Most members of the Motoyoshi Clan were shocked to see Kaoru select a different fleet to complete her initial years of officer training, however, the young cadet insisted that she required training that included time away from her contributors, was free to do so under the conditions that she would return to the Seventh Fleet when her tour was over.
