Character Description

 Misato was a Nekovalkyrja, Type 33 who elected to change her appearance significantly when she upgraded from the NH-29 body type. She now has golden honey almond-shaped eyes with black hair with dark purple highlights, cut in the Eye-level Fringe Style that tapers off at the shoulders. Her form is petite and feminine, but very expressive of her darker and enigmatic nature.

Misato is an outspoken leader of the Motoyoshi Clan. She tends to be very bold and even confrontational with those who get in the way of her agenda. While on the professional platform she tends to be highly organized, meticulous and has an expectation of her subordinates and peers to act in the same manner. She is very manipulative, capable of changing her approach, tone, personality on a whim to get the information she desires. She has no hesitation to use violence, seduction or dishonesty to ensure she comes out ahead in any situation.

While her approach may seem very direct, her true nature tends to be darker and more enigmatic. The surface tends to be whatever approach is being utilized at the time, and rarely reflects her inner-workings.

History and Relationship Notes

Misato first appearance in the roleplay occurred in YE 29 in the aftermath of the Battle Of Taiie. However, her service record extends back to YE 28 where she served as a Intelligence Officer under Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko.

The Bakufu, SAINT and the Tange

In YE 29 Misato was promoted to Taisa and served as the Star Army Starship Captain of the YSS Adlich. She served as the Head of Intelligence, representing Star Army Intelligence in the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet. Members of her crew, and several officers under influence became the Tange Tributary of the Motoyoshi Bafuku. In the Bakufu she was also responsible for Intelligence, becoming the head of their intelligence division (BSIA). During this period she was promoted up the ranks to Shรดshรด and then again to Chujo.

As the leader of the Tange, along with her sister Tange Nao she held a great deal of influence within the Bakufu, the fleet and had the ear of Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko. When Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko became Empress of the Yamatai Star Empire, Misato was appointed to be the Director of Star Army Intelligence.

The United Outer Colonies

When the defection of the Motoyoshi Bafuku to the United Outer Colonies occurred, Misato remained in the Yamatai Star Empire. She aggressively protested the actions of the Tange, and her sister Nao who had become militant and unruly in their support of Motoyoshi Kiyoko.

YSS Yuurei and Assumed Death

As the director of Star Army Intelligence, Misato took command of the YSS Yuurei. On its maiden voyage, the ship and crew participated in Operation Matchmaker.

The ship disappeared in the Bufarks Debris Cloud, while conducting an investigation into the Sfrarabla Mishhuvurthyar Xhrafuklurp (SMX) Exodus. It was assumed that Misato was killed in action when the ship was taken by Angelica, however, it was never confirmed.

Rebirth and Toushi Starfighter Squadron

Misato was restored under the orders of Taisho Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko in YE 32. She was temporarily demoted to Taisa and served in the Seventh Fleet while she adjusted. She became the leader of the Toushi Starfighter Squadron (7SF-01).

Restoration of Command and The Motoyoshi

Misato played a major role in the reformation of the Yamatai no Motoyoshi in YE 34. Her connections to many of Taiie survivors and active communication with members of the Motoyoshi Bafuku that remained loyal to the Empire was extremely important to the reformation. She serves as the second in command, beneath Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko and has a very active role in the day-to-day operation of the clan.

In late YE 34 she was restored to the rank of Chujo and resumed her role as a Flag Officer for the Seventh Fleet.

The Ugly Truth

In YE 38, She took a leave of absence from the Star Army of Yamatai. In her absence, Motoyoshi-Yamada Ayano became closer to Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko and began to share details about the true nature of Misato. It made Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko suspicious and she eventually started to look into the situation and was devastated by what she found. She found out that Misato had been in regular contact with her sister Tange Nao and was conspiring with Motoyoshi Kiyoko.

Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko began to coordinate with Star Army Intelligence to track Misato's communications and travel history which led them to several coordinated meetings with the other members of the Tange Clan and terrorist attacks in the former United Outer Colonies. During surveillance, it was found that Misato had coordinated the workings behind several events of the past, for example she had influenced Hanabusa Tonsho, the daughter of Hanabusa Miho, and had conspired in what resulted in the defection of the Hanabusa Tributary into the influence of Angelica.

In YE 41, under threat of arrest Misato fled to the former United Outer Colonies. She lost her rank and position in the Star Army of Yamatai and joined Motoyoshi Kiyoko.

See the following roleplay threads:


In YE 42, something unclear, but traumatic happens on a Mishhuvurthyar ship that makes Misato realize that she chose the wrong side. Devastated by the actions of Motoyoshi Kiyoko, she takes her own life by shooting herself int he head. With no ST data on file, her death is permanent. In the time before her death she left a message for her sister Tange Nao, trying to warn her that Motoyoshi Kiyoko could not be trusted and would eventually kill them all.
