With the Kuvexian War dragging on, countless pirates and criminal opportunists seek to heist valuable teleporter and even nekovalkyrja bodies from fresh skirmish graveyards. To all observers merely a standard Midori-class scout attached to Task Force 85, the Komainu is in fact tasked with the unsung and unglamorous task of covertly eliminating such possibilities.
Newly commissioned, commanded by a mere Taii, and intentionally crewed by anti-social misfits who couldn't quite get along in society proper. It is a ship of feral bloodhounds, who must learn to cooperate and carve themselves into the memory of their enemies… or else descend into apathy, and die forgotten as just another stone in the vast empire's bottomless foundations.
YSS Komainu is an Open RP plot originally created June 27th, 2019 by Primitive Polygon, who is the current Game Master. Roleplay takes place primarily via SP, and players are expected to post frequently to keep things moving. Also, JPs may be scheduled from time to time (usually as character development interludes/asides).
This plot intends to be a relatively grounded space-combat and investigation squad sim, with players characters given more room to explore the moral grey areas of being born as a semi-disposable biological killing machine. Stealth and close quarters combat are a major focus, covertly operating deep in no-mans land. Of course, there may also be occasions were simply storming the enemy as quickly as possible is applicable too. The enemies will be numerous, frightening, robust, and probably quite depraved.
TLDR; It's a quality-focused plot where spirit, brains and originality are rewarded.
There is no minimum age requirement to join, though it may heighten in future based on player requests.

The YSS Komainu is a relatively standard model, though somebody thought it was a good idea to use neko nests instead of bunk beds. The spare room has been converted into a dojo, complete with rubber floor mats, red wall felt, some ranther bizzare the traditional golden regalia, and of course wooden practice weapons. Many of the bulkheads have ofuda randomly pasted to them, a holdover of the former religiously-inclined captain.

Any standard crew position is open! Unused vital roles will be filled by NPCs! Polygon wants you to just enjoy doing what you'd like to RP!
This ship is open to any type of nefarious rough-around-the-edges characters as long as the writing is good!
Please keep in mind, however, that the Komainu is on a politically sensitive mission, and full of scary miscreant bio-weapon catgirls.
Plot has not yet begun!
Komainu are the name of those temple-guarding dog/lion statues you can find in many parts of east Asia. Yay for random weird symbolism?
