Carried by Princess Taisho Shimizu-Motoyoshi Akina (清水本吉明菜), in a rare pregnancy of triplets. Miu was born second when Akina went into labour, and thus is the second of the Ketsurui-Shimizu Princesses. Her other mother is the former Empress Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko. To commemorate her birth a Star System in the eastern expanse of the Yamatai Star Empire was named after her.
The Norian arrived at the edge of the Kikyo Sector in empty space near the Xylar system in 44.72). As a reservist with a history of command, Miu was called on to help with the mercy operation. She was assigned to command a Sharie-class Battleship in the First Expeditionary Fleet. Iconic Popstar Kotonoha Miyako was her First Officer. She engaged their ship with the enemy that followed the Norians into the sector.
She was awarded the Norian Arrival Humanitarian Assistance Medal before being deactivated again.
It was decided by Yugumo Fleetworks that someone prominent in one of the Three Clans3) should present the gift of the Ketsurui-no-Arashi to the Empress. As a daughter of the heads of two of the Clans she was born into, Miu made an obvious choice given her close association with the Yugumo brand and her work on the YCS Bastion of Winter. Being comfortable in high-visibility situations also helped her out.
She arrived in YE 44.9 over Yamatai (Planet) with the crew of the Arashi as the ceremonial leader of the small gift fleet. The Princess was even convinced to wear a revealing white bear costume for the occasion.4)
The Shimizu Clan took up the idea to host a huge party at Year-End in the finest Norse tradition of Yamatai. Miu was one of the project leads for the Kikyo Connect electronic ecosystem, and the Yul celebration was where it would be unveiled and launched to the general public.
Given she was on the world and had a costume already, she was pressed into working at the KiNet area on the opening-night of the festival. She answered questions, gave out premium memberships, and helped to give lottery tickets away.
At the beginning of YE 45 it was time for the Senate of Yamatai to elect a Premier5). It was decided that at least three candidates must run to ensure the people had a choice in the matter. With so few serious candidates to run for the position, Miu decided to run for the position by being voted for locally in the Jiyuu System. Despite not assuming she had a chance, she put her full energy behind the campaign with a small team to help her.
To Miu's surprise, she was made one of the candidates representing the Bellflower Party for the Empire-wide election.
With more resources at her disposal and a duty to make even more of an effort, she earnestly persued the chance to represent the interests of the Empire and the Ketsurui Clan in the service of Empress Himiko I.
When the election came, she secured more individual districts than the only other serious opponent, her Bellflower ally Ketsurui-Shinjuku Hanako. Even if she held the popular vote, almost all the districts voting for her did not have a Senator to represent her in the electoral vote of the Imperial Senate.
Miu won the popular votes in both the Jiyuu System and the Koukotsu System which both had serving Senators. With Hanako past the bar to win already, Senator Ketsurui Koyama voted against Miu for Hanako despite objections during the proceedings6).
The loss was expected, but it did not happen how she expected. Despite how it happened, she was deeply honored to have the confidence of so many of her fellow Imperial Citizens.
Miu has extensive education and training in the Engineering field, dating back to before she joined the Star Army. While in service, she obtained two different PhDs. She has the knowledge and skills to both maintain and design star ships working in tandem with others in service, as well as to jury-rig solutions on the fly from her time spent during the war. She has also spent time working with various R&D programs, including strictly military ones, both as a junior Engineer, up to project lead for various systems.
Shimizu learned to command from experience and training in the Star Army of Yamatai. She is able to speak in public both in academy and military settings, and has attended the Kyoto War College before earning her command level promotions.
As a cadet and student, Miu soaked up anything else she could to answer the growing list of her questions, as well as complete coursework pertaining to: Star Army history, the laws of the Empire, technology from other civilizations, and pop culture history for bar nights, to name a few.
Proficiency not only with military and civilian radio (and similar) traffic, but also adept at reading and composing reports. Working knowledge of typical space-faring communications devices, focused on Yamataian. She speaks and writes in advance levels in: Trade, Yamataigo, and has downloaded Tinacen to learn completely at her first civilian posting.
She has all her current certifications on Star Army small arms, and is proficient in hand-to-hand and zero-g combat. This includes operation of power armor.
Repairing and maintaining is not enough as an engineer, she also knows how to use standard Kessaku OS systems, and to traverse databases as needed.
Miu's digital brain and her years of study (as well as applied mathematics) together have made her proficient with mathematics.
Miu has a mix of her own belongings, her old Star Army uniform pieces, and recently issued Yugumo uniforms and materials.
