Personality: Aurelia is known to be compassionate and fair. She doesn't like to be harsh but will be if the need is great. Her general attitude towards most things is calm and collected. Aurelia is extremely maternal towards anyone around her and is remembered to be greatly loved by her subordinates during her military career.

Her stolid attention to detail has resulted in her appointment to command 4th Fleet's coveted battleship division until her retirement from service.

Aurelia joined the Navy upon its foundation at independence. However, unlike many of her colleagues, she was not part of the historic Kennewes Offensive against the Reds. She saw no action during this time, being posted to a unit patrolling the border with Yamatai. However, during this time, her husband was killed in action and her daughter was given into the custody of her in-laws. Because of her duties, she couldn't take time off to fight the legal battle. Due to the requirements of the service, Aurelia was unable to take time off to gain custody of her daughter.
However, during the Second Mishhu War, she was in command of the 4th Fleet cruiser, NSS Revenge, at the actions in System 87I and the Rok'Veru Offensive. Following her actions during both operations, the NSS Revenge returned with the flagship for refits to Nepleslia Prime. Hers was one of the ships that chased down the Dauntless' killer.
As the Grand Admiral lay recuperating and reorganizing 4th Fleet, he picked out her name as one for promotion to Rear Admiral. He also interviewed her on multiple occasions to ensure that she was the best candidate to command the new battleship division and command his fleet's line of battle. In the end, his elevation of her to the rank and position of Rear Admiral commanding the division confirmed that she had earned his trust. He even intervened using his position to force Aurelia's in-laws to give her custody of her daughter, Sadie.
For her own part, Aurelia was honored by her promotion and the trust placed on her. While the division's ships were being constructed and assembled, Aurelia and her new boyfriend, James, spent a lot of time catching up with her daughter.
Fortunately, the fleet did not see any major action during her reign as its commander, and the eventual reorganization of the Nepleslian Star Navy pushed her to retire from service. Her subsequent retirement ceremony ironically coincided with her daughter's commissioning into the Nepleslian Star Navy. The still relatively young Geshrin would continue to work for the Nepleslian military as a civilian advisor in the upcoming years.
She is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions (on both normal and encrypted channels) from other characters through headsets, ships, ground vehicles, power armor, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. She can also (with some time and the right tools) intercept and decrypt enemy communications (not always successful, dependent on complexity of the communication). She is fluent in Nepleslian and Yamataian. She can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc. She is skilled in field communications and is proficient in all rudimentary forms of communication (hand signals, flashing lights, etc). She is able to repair damaged communications devices or (with the proper tools and help) construct new ones.
She received intensive hand-to-hand combat training (primarily focused on disabling and/or killing opponents) and has followed up that knowledge with a rigorous training program. Weapons she is trained in include pistols of all types, knives, grenades (and other forms of explosive weaponry) and rifles of all kinds. She isn't physically strong, however.
Being a naval officer, she is trained to lead her sailors in offensive and defensive boarding actions.
She knows how to survive in hostile environments. She can build shelters, hunt and forage for food, build a fire, etc. She can also camouflage herself and is familiar with guerrilla warfare tactics.
She can understand and give out tactical commands and work with her people to follow those commands efficiently. She knows the importance of teamwork on the battlefield, has been intensively trained in discipline and morale, and is able to recognize the command structure even while under extreme pressure (combat, etc). She is able to recognize ambush points, knows basic math in order to calculate distances, etc, and can use a tactical map.
She is a decent public speaker, but her initial command presence wasn't that effective when it comes to Nepleslians. They'd rather obey the officer bars instead of her as a person. Having yet to prove herself as an Admiral, her subordinates are looking to see if she is indeed qualified to lead the battleship division.
She is a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to starship operations. She has basic knowledge in how to pilot the ship, use communication devices, operate ship's electronic system, etc. She has a very strong knowledge of the artificial intelligence on a starship and can utilize it to assist her operations on the ship, although this knowledge applies only to the application of the AI, not the repair of it. She has, however, no knowledge beyond the basics required to operate the ship. She cannot, for example, break through a password-protected terminal or fix a blast door. She is aware of Star Army history up to YE 28 as well as up to current Nepleslian history. She is also aware of many older Yamataian and all Nepleslian laws.
Being a mother, she has learned how to take care of her family and home. This includes laundry, cooking, general cleaning, taking care of babies, and nagging her boyfriend into doing things.
