Sayuri is an INTJ3) personality type. She is a very analytical person, who is constantly seeking knowledge through investigation and the application of the scientific method. While her approach appears to be cold and calculated, her inner processes have a tendency of being highly complex which generally requires her to shut out unwanted distractions and avoid some social situations that she considers intrusive. She has been accused more than once of β€œliving in her head” as that she has no discomfort in spending hours of time alone in a laboratory or devoted to a project. When she does engage in social interaction it tends to be very direct, analytical, and sometimes critical even if she has the other person's interests at heart. When dealing with subordinates she tends to focus conversations around assisting them with setting goals, completing assignments, and teaching them to deploy better personal strategies.

She avoids the party scene and tends to gravitate towards small groups and one-on-one interactions during her off-duty hours and has little interest in romance. She's labeled herself as a sapiosexual because she finds shared intellectual pursuits to be the foundation of a good relationship.


She enjoys music; mainly jazz, classical and traditional Yamataian but has been known to be a secret lover of Yamataian pop. She loves the winter season and enjoys walking in the snow after it has freshly fallen. She often decorates her personal spaces with small, unique house plants or high-maintenance bonsai trees. She enjoys cooking and trying new cuisines.


She dislikes disorder; messy or unorganized spaces tend to trigger her more uptight mood. She avoids the consumption of alcohol, especially beer which she claims is bitter and disgusting. People with an uncultured palate generally meet her judgment when it comes to cuisine. Loud chaotic music annoys her to the point she will remove herself from the area if she hears it.


She has all the expected Star Army Common Skills as well as training in the following fields:

  • Xenobiology and Xenobiological toxicology.
  • Physics and Chemistry, mainly molecular chemistry used in toxicology applications.
  • Cooking and Fusion Cuisine.


Motoyoshi Sayuri's History.


Sayuri was tank created on Hotaru Star Fortress in late YE 28 as a NH-17 Nekovalkyrja. Her original name was Kuroki Sayuri. She underwent basic training and experienced life as a Star Army Soldier serving in patrols and general duties on both Hotaru Star Fortress and Himitsu Star Fortress until she enrolled in the satellite training program that was offered in the Fifth Expeditionary Fleet through Kyoto War College and Star Army Academy. Due to shortages after the Battle Of Taiie, her advancement was excellerated and she was immediately instated as the rank of Shoi Kohosei, as a Star Army Science Officer while she continued to take courses remotely. She completed her degrees in full in early YE 30.
