 Yui and Yumi were raised as babies, but later Nekovalkyrja were generally created as full adults.

-==== NH-7 ==== 
 PNUgen, following on their success, created the [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nh-7]] Nekovalkyrja II, which saw even more production – and were eventually purchased by the WickedArms Industries Corporation and Ketsurui Heavy Industries, whom began producing NH-7 variants. PNUgen, following on their success, created the [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nh-7]] Nekovalkyrja II, which saw even more production – and were eventually purchased by the WickedArms Industries Corporation and Ketsurui Heavy Industries, whom began producing NH-7 variants.

-==== NH-17 ==== 
 The Star Army Research Administration,​ a branch of the Ketsurui Zaibatsu, eventually produced the [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nh-17]] Nekovalkyrja V from YE 23 to 27, producing in the span of four years a number of four-and-a-half-trillion models; making them the most common series yet which came in the 17R (regular), 17S (stealth) and the 17T (telepathic) variants. The Star Army Research Administration,​ a branch of the Ketsurui Zaibatsu, eventually produced the [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nh-17]] Nekovalkyrja V from YE 23 to 27, producing in the span of four years a number of four-and-a-half-trillion models; making them the most common series yet which came in the 17R (regular), 17S (stealth) and the 17T (telepathic) variants.

-==== NH-22 ==== + 
-More recent developments introduced the NH-22 Nekovalkyrja types, ​but instead of seeing mass-production, ​they only lasted for a prototype phase before they branched off into two variants whom became types of their own: The NH-22M Nekovalkyrja VI, originally designed to assemble most the the NH-17’s variants under one powerful package, was perfected and reclassified as the NH-27 Nekovalkyrja (Type 27); The NH-22C Nekovalkyrja VI, designed to be a civilian unit capable of child-bearing instead of a military-grade machine, was reclassified as the ‘Yamataian’ race under Nekovalkyrja Re-integration Plan. The [[species:​nh-22c]] were strongly advocated by the Yamataian Government to diminish the number of Nekovalkyrja combat units in an effort to integrate them into society when the Yamatai Star Empire was not in a state of war.+The NH-22 Nekovalkyrja types, instead of seeing mass-production,​ only lasted for a prototype phase before they branched off into two variants whom became types of their own: The NH-22M Nekovalkyrja VI, originally designed to assemble most the the NH-17’s variants under one powerful package, was perfected and reclassified as the NH-27 Nekovalkyrja (Type 27); The NH-22C Nekovalkyrja VI, designed to be a civilian unit capable of child-bearing instead of a military-grade machine, was reclassified as the ‘Yamataian’ race under Nekovalkyrja Re-integration Plan.

-==== NH-28 ==== 
 In [[timeline:​ye_28]],​ the NH-28 Nodal Integrated Weapon System saw the field. Rather than being an actual living creature, the [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nh-28_niws]] pushed the weapon-aspect of the Nekovalkyrja series to the hilt, creating a cold killing machine designed as a ruthless counter the Mishhuvurthyar. In [[timeline:​ye_28]],​ the NH-28 Nodal Integrated Weapon System saw the field.

-==== NH-29 ==== +The NH-29 (now known as the [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nh-29]]) was made by the [[stararmy:​sara]] as an answer to the NH-22C/​Yamataians,​ so that the Nekovalkyrja could continue their own species instead of being absorbed by another. The NH-29 was based on the NH-17, but does not share most of their combat capabilities,​ settling for a revised, more robust physiology and relying more on power armor to provide for their fighting capabilities. The NH-29 was the standard model Nekovalkyrja body used by the [[stararmy:start]] until its replacement by the [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nekovalkyrja_type_33]] around [[timeline:​ye_34]],​ making it the primary Nekovalkyrja serving throughout the [[timeline:events:​second_mishhuvurthyar_war]].

-==== Type 33 ==== 
 The [[species:​Nekovalkyrja:​Nekovalkyrja Type 33]] design process began around the same time that the [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nh-32]] was started in [[timeline:​ye_32]]. The NH-3x as it was called was also influenced by the shifting role of the [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nh-29]],​ becoming the primary ship-borne troops and the [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nh-32]] specialized for Infantry. This shift is why the Tennyo is no stronger than the [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nh-29|NH-29]]. With the NMX manufacturing their own [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nh-29|NH-29]] as soldiers and infiltration personnel, the designers wanted NH-33 easier to identify, starting with a change in the hand structure. Also a number of internal systems were modified, namely the cardiac and respiratory were based on the [[species:​minkan]]. The respiratory system was upgraded with the ability to store oxygen, to help improve survivability in situations where a ship's structural integrity was compromised,​ specialized for space service, and equipped with several security enhancements. ​ The [[species:​Nekovalkyrja:​Nekovalkyrja Type 33]] design process began around the same time that the [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nh-32]] was started in [[timeline:​ye_32]].

Prior to this, the soldiers had no rights to their bodies.

 +===== Other Nekovalkyrja Subcultures =====
 +These are types of Nekovalkyrja that have branched off over the years.
 +
 +==== Niko Yârme ====
 +The Niko Yârme (Free Neko) are the smallest population in the [[faction:​hidden_sun_clan]]. They currently number less than 300 members. ​
 +Niko Yârme which literally translates to Neko that are freed, or Free Neko for simplicity.
 +
 +The Niko Yârme are the surviving members of [[guide:​nmx_nekovalkyrja|NMX Nekovalkyrja]] on Aetheric Haven.. After the bombardment they rebelled from their NMX masters, and spent their time trying to survive on a devastated world. They were discovered by members of the [[plot:​searching_hawk]] on a training mission. They were given a choice they could return to the [[faction:​yamatai_star_empire]] or remain with the clan as [[faction:​hidden_sun_clan:​slaves]] until they could gain citizen status. More than half of the survivors chose to go to Yamatai. The rest some 250 opted to remain with the clan.
 +
 +All Niko Yârme have [[species:​nekovalkyrja:​nh-29]] bodies. They possess all of the standard abilities. The Niko Yarme chose to not return to Yamatai. The main cause was they genuinely fears for their lives if they returned. They did not want to be forced to serve in another military. Their ordeal of surviving after the bombing of [[planet:​clandream]] made them fairly independent and resourceful. They have a strong sense of community. ​
 +
 +==== NMX Nekovalkyrja ====
 +The [[faction:​Mishhuvurthyar:​NMX]] made its own Nekovalkyrja after capturing some production facilities during the [[timeline:​events:​Second Mishhuvurthyar War]].
