Psychological Characteristics

Personality: Shinon is naturally friendly but suspicious. She was a target of bullying. That made her careful of who she befriends. Star Army is now everything for her though and she wants to become someone in it. Being raised by Nepleslian makes it a little harder for her since being formal is not one of her good points.

Usually she stays calm in most situations, she hates when Yamataian people looks down upon other races. Nepleslians for example. She thinks that Yamatai should be more righteous and noble and that every race deserves the same amount of hate or respect. Shinon hates lying and prefers to not do so if she can.

With all that she still has a sense of humour and is not afraid to be sarcastic when situation calls for it.

Although she is aspiring to be an officer she is not content with sacrificing any of the people under her command. She is type of officer who wants to be with her team in the fray.

Likes: Star Army, nepleslian cuisine, honest people Dislikes: Bullies, pointless sacrifice Goals: Become grade A officer.


Family (or Creators)

John Maverick Age:49 - Nepleslian, now in Yamataian body. Ex-cop in Nepleslia, now police officer in Yamatai. Sakumi Maverick Age 45 - Yamataian. Newspaper editor.


Shinon was conceived in Funky city. Her mother was there on job for Newspaper she was working for, she fell in love with policeman who helped her on her first day in maze-like, crime-ridden city. Sakumi found out she was pregnant only after she returned to Yamatai. She contacted father who immediately took responsibility. He moved to Yamatai.

Sakumi was raised in higher society and lived there too. Her having baby with some Nepleslian copper and even marrying him was not something that would be looked good upon. That also brought problem to Shinon when she was growing up. Even though she was born Geshrin she was still bullied for having Nepleslian dad. Her being always taller then every other girl and embracing some of her dads 'nepleslian' ways did not help either. Her dad thought her that when someone pushes her, she should tell him or her to stop. And well if they push again she should push back even harder.

That was not something that made her teachers happy. Society in Yamatai was more strict then in Nepleslia. Her mother was busy lady so she was raised up mainly by her father who sadly was not one to care about Yamatai's strict society.

In the end Shinon learned to find other people who were disliked like her. Most of them were people were 'geeks' but she didn't mind that.

As she grew up to be tall, slim girl with athletic body and rather big boobs for Yamatai she also became more hated. Only thing that helped was that she was always stronger then others (plus her daddies taught her few dirty tricks).

Even though her growing up was not exactly walk in the park she embraced it for what it was and she learned from it.

In YE28 she and her whole family upgraded to new yamataians bodies. She saw Yamatai re-shaping itself around self and some of things that happened make afraid. Afraid for Yamatai's future. She wanted to help shaped it in some way. She saw only way to do that to raise up in Yamataian military.

That was reason for her to apply into military academy. For next years she trained to be capable PA pilot who is able to lead people. It was only after that it occurred to her that PA commander won't get up so quickly as someone from navy could but she saw that only as obstacle.

Before graduation she shortly served as Shoi Kohosei on one of the guard ships which sadly never got into battle. They had some mock-battles though that helped her get extra experience needed.

Now after graduation with fresh rank of Shoi she wait for her new post.

YSS Genesis

Shinon was ordered to board the protypal ship YSS Genesis as infantry officer. She met few new interesting people on this ship, docked in Origin Dawn station. Ship was supposed to be tested as joint OP of SAoY and Origin, the company that built the ship itself for Yamatai.

Soon after, more of the crew start arriving in the ship. Unluckily one member of SAoY was missing. Shinon and few other went out to found the missing soldier. After some investiagiont and searching the station, he was found sight-seeing. It was found out that the poor fellow forogot to set his time to Dawn station's time.

Shinon had hard time adjusting to carefree ways on Genesis. No ranks and titles, just names. She was used to drill and discipline. She tried to hold herself back and act friendly thought. Soon new recruits came to ship and Genesis set off. Not long after the ship left Dawn Staton, Shinon and her team was called upon for their first job. They were to get into the space and attach cable lines to the comet, a ball of ice and death. After attaching it Genesis was supposed to haul it of.

After Genesis

Soon after the comet mission, Shinon got chance to get additional training. It was either that or joining the legions. Since she did not want her career to end she went to get the training. She chose to become a tactical officer on the ship. Or rather get tactical training. She did not expect to be the officer on her next assignment, after all even tactical officer needed few people under him. She assumed that will be her next position. And as a plus people, from tactical gets to be on Away teams every now and then. Even though, Shinon was shifting to a new position, she was still trained infantry officer inside.

YSS Byakuren

After her training was complete, she immediately received a transfer to YSS Byakuren. Shinon was one of the people chosen for the task force specialising in hunting rogue samurais.
