Reika's facial features possesses an unnatural beauty that is characteristic of Minkan, Nekovalkyrja and Yamataians; giving her the appearance of a young woman of Earth asian descent, perhaps in her late teens or early twenties. Her near perfectly shaped features are framed by a silky smooth mane of cerulean-colored hair that slides down her shoulders as far as the small of her back. Her intense, almost hypnotic almond-shaped eyes are amethyst-like jewels that might ensnare another with their gaze. She has full, luscious lips often quirked into a faintly amused smile. Her delicate, cat-like ears are softly furred and tufted at the tips; covered with the same cerulean-colored hair which trails down from the crown of Reika's head. A dainty, narrow nose with a smooth bridge rests near center of her face, seeming perfectly matched and aligned to the rest of her features. Her complexion is light, slightly tanned and without any discernable blemishes.
Her build is very unusual for a neko in that it is bluntly feminine, with long legs that also make her unusually tall for one of her kind and give her a standing height of 170 cm (5'7”). Her figure is all female and athletic curves, beginning from her strong calves and leading up to her powerful thighs. She possesses a firm, heart-shaped rear and flared hips. Her narrow, toned waist gives her a devastating hourglass figure; at rest revealing just the tiniest hint of her abdominal muscles and giving her a fit, healthy appearance. She possesses a distinctly over-generous bust, while her arms, forearms and shoulders show clear evidence of more muscle definition.
Reika has something of a dual nature; in general, her behavior towards others is respectful, compassionate, protective and sociable. She can also be characterized as tomboyish due to her hands-on approach to most problems and her competitiveness. Thanks in part to her Star Army Intelligence training she is also extremely observant and is capable of rapid and well-reasoned cognition while working under conditions of extreme danger.
In rare circumstances though, Reika has shown a seemingly uncharacteristic ruthlessness when operating in pursuit of her goals. This personality trait can be disconcerting or perhaps terrifying to those who had yet to see this aspect of her personality and are only familiar with the kinder and more companionable nature she usually presents. In pursuit of her objectives, she is perfectly comfortable deceiving, killing, maiming or torturing an individual if she believes that the task is truly necessary. However, when there is a reasonably viable and less morally repugnant alternative she does generally prefer to explore that option first.
Reika has acquired a bit of a complex in regards to her physical appearance, which is significantly more buxom and feminine than that of your typical nekovalkyrja. While she knows it can be a useful tool, she finds some of the attention she receives because of her features rather exasperating.
The operative's feelings in regards to her current relationship with Kotori are also rather conflicted. Though she is required to spy upon Kotori, her fond feelings for the Ketsurui princess' are genuine and she dislikes the fact that she needs to deceive her lover. It remains to be seen whether or not Reika's feelings will hold sway over her actions should Kotori prove herself a threat to the Yamatai Star Empire, or if she will let her duty reign supreme and eliminate Kotori should circumstances seem to warrant such an action.
The following contains the history of the character Tachihara Reika.
This is severely out-of-date and undergoing revision.
Reika was created at the behest of Star Army Intelligence. SAINT's request specified the production of several NH-29 (one of which was Reika) with physical specifications and mental characteristics that made them suited for and psychologically predisposed towards performing dangerous intelligence-oriented work in the field.
Reika was created in early YE 32, thus she is still quite young and has spent the majority of her short life undergoing various kinds of preparatory training for her service in the Star Army of Yamatai and Star Army Intelligence (SAINT). She completed basic training in the 99th percentile of her class, meeting the hopeful expectations SAINT had when they initially had her created. After that, Reika successfully aced the four-week SELECT ordeal and following medical examination before undergoing the SAINT mental conditioning prior to her placement in the INDOC program.
For the twenty weeks following her introduction to INDOC, Reika studied and trained in a wide variety of Intelligence gathering activities and disciplines. Having successfully finished INDOC, Reika received her first posting.

The following article contains the skills of the character Tachihara Reika.
Reika specializes in intelligence gathering operations within the field such as covert infiltration and ex-filtration; allowing her to more easily sneak behind enemy lines for different missions.
She is also highly trained in survival; the ability to live off the land by finding food, water, hunting, avoid hazards and build shelter. Escape; the ability to slip out of ropes, handcuffs, and similar restraints. Resistance; withstanding various forms of interrogation and torture. Evasion activities; evading hostile pursuit in a variety of urban and natural environments.
Surveillance; covertly observing and shadowing a specific individual or target unnoticed. Forward observing; marking targets for artillery and orbital strikes. Combat reconnaissance; relaying troop and equipment movements from behind combat lines.
Navigation; the skill of finding ones position through careful observation of the surroundings like landmarks and stars. Camouflage; how to use natural materials that can be found in the environment, special fabrics and paints to hide herself, her position or her equipment as needed.
After her rise to officer rank and the subsequent increase in her security clearance Reika has gained access to a larger array of in-service training courses as a member Star Army Intelligence. Thus, Reika has begun receiving training in advanced interrogation techniques and in countering indoctrination; the black art of technological personality alteration and mind control.
Her correspondence training in interrogation has helped Reika better understand elements of humanoid psychology and how to better acquire information by means of intimidation and other psychological tactics.
Indoctrination, or more commonly “brainwashing”, encompasses many techniques – drugs, electroshock, hypnotism, sensory deprivation, sleep deprivation, social pressure, subliminal messages, surgery, psionics, cybernetic implants, nanotech augmentation and in the case of nekovalkyrja, minkan and yamataians; mind emulation re-programming. Often it requires the use of several combinations of these techniques.
Reika now has a limited understanding of how these indoctrination processes work, as well as how to successfully brainwash or deprogram individuals.
Further in-service training as an officer of Star Army Intelligence as well as her various course correspondences with the Kyoto War College have required Reika to acquire greater skill in intelligence analysis, public speaking, command, diplomacy, infantry and starship tactics.
While not yet at the level of a full officer, her past experience as an enlisted soldier combined with her officer training has lent Reika some increased skill in the art of command, allowing her to better lead and instruct others in stressful and dangerous situations using various infantry and starship combat tactics.
Reika's ongoing training in intelligence analysis has increased her ability to accurately analyze and interpret intelligence data, more easily deduce enemy plans and capabilities, evaluate the accuracy of information and rate the reliability of sources.
She has been trained in the arts of seduction, pick-pocketing, physical and electronic lock-picking and intrusion, creating disguises of both a physical nature and through volumetric projection, smuggling items and equipment, forgery and counterfeiting of official documents for the creation of false identities.
For the purposes of sabotage and destruction of specified targets after infiltration, Reika has been extensively trained by Star Army Intelligence in the creation, handling, use, disposal and dismantling of a wide variety of explosive devices used both within the Yamatai Star Empire and in the nations surrounding it.
Reika has been taught how to prepare and place explosives in a wide range of environments; including varying planetary environments, underwater and in a vacuum. Some types of explosive devices Reika has been trained to create, use, disarm and dismantle include biochemical aerosol, biochemical liquid, fragmentation explosives, concussion explosives, thermobaric explosives, electromagnetic pulse, nuclear fission, fusion bombs, anti-matter explosives, aether explosives, EM jammers, plasma explosives and gravitic imploders.
Reika is in peak physical condition due to constant training and intense regular exercise. She has strength, agility and speed all at or near the upper limits for a standard NH-33 Nekovalkyrja. She also has considerable physical endurance, allowing her to perform exhausting physical activity for extended periods.
She is skilled in a wide variety of physical activities such as swimming, long-distance running, and climbing for use in situations where she cannot utilize her innate gravity manipulation abilities to get around without possibly being detected by sensors or scanning devices.
As part of her basic Star Army training, Reika has been educated in basic mathematics such as algebra and trigonometry. Through self-study she has also increased her understanding of mathematics to improve her ability in applied mathematics; the branch that deals directly with physical sciences and engineering.
Part of her original Star Army Intelligence training taught Reika a considerable amount about cryptology; the mathematical study of codes and ciphers, giving her a considerable understanding of various encryption schemes used by different nations and species.
Reika has been well trained in the use of an extensive variety of communications methods; including infrared, laser, radio, neutrino, gravity, hyperspace, subspace, quantum and tachyon devices. Her basic training in communications equipment has been further supplemented by Star Army Intelligence so that she may utilize inventive and complicated means of boosting or augmenting communications tech to break through a wide array of jamming methods for the purposes of relaying important information.
Reika is adept in Nekovalkyrja telepathic and wireless communication, being able to send and receive messages within the full range available to the NH-33 body type.
Thanks to her Star Army Intelligence training, Reika has been highly education in cryptography; the ability to create and defeat encryption systems, codes and ciphers. She can accurately encode and decode messages using complex and practically unbreakable mathematical ciphers, either through the use of traditional communications devices, computers, or solely within her own mind whilst using telepathic sending and receiving.
Reika speaks, reads and writes fluent Trade and Yamataian. She has additionally received SAINT training for and continues to study the most up-to-date linguistic knowledge of civilizations within and in proximity to the Yamatai Star Empire – both friendly and hostile – for the purpose of information retrieval.
Reika is well-trained in several close unarmed combat styles and utilizes a personalized fighting style that borrows techniques shamelessly from different martial arts based on each particular moves utility in combat. Her training in unarmed combat originates from the standard Star Army and SAINT training curriculum but has been extended also through significant martial arts training and simulated sparring in her free time.
During her training, Reika was prepared for combat in a wide range of planetary environments and within zero-gravity conditions, whilst either armed or unarmed.
Reika has extensive weapons training and is proficient in the use of various pistol types, bladed weapons and power armor. She is particularly adept in the use of rifles as part of her SAINT training for assassination, and in the use of explosives for sabotage.
More recently, Reika has also increased her off-hours training in the use of a katana so that she might comport herself better in a swordfight against rogue samurai targeting Kotori.
Reika is fully capable of operating any computer that makes use of the Kessaku OS, found within all Star Army starships. Her SAINT training has given her a proficiency in accessing and acquiring information within a wide range of computer operating systems utilized by both civilians, military's, and other nations around the Yamatai Star Empire.
Reika's advanced programming knowledge allows her to rapidly create complex algorithms to decode data and hack through digital firewalls and protections within all but the most heavily fortified computer systems. Reika is also extremely adept at hacking the operating systems found within Nekovalkryja and Yamataian minds through telepathic communication, though this can take time depending upon the level of protection in place.
