Physical Description

Being a Nekovalkyrja, Type 33, Shiori shares the same grace as her fellow kin in her general appearance. The greyish-blue eyes blending in well with her silvery-white skin are perfectly contrasted by the vibrant violet tones in her almost shoulder length hair.

She is not too fussed about make-up or specific hairstyles in general as she tends to merely keep her hair fastened to the sides with a pair of rather quaint self-made pink sakura blossom hairpins. During more formal occasions she may add a splash of darker purple shades to her otherwise thick eyelashes and will normally wear her hair up in a neat bun.

Height: 149cm
Mass: 39kg
Measurements: 30C-22W-31H
Bra Size: C
Build and Skin Color: Athletic, Silvery-White
Eye Color: Greyish Blue
Hair Color: Violet

Shiori wears a delicate perfume called NEKO KAWAII 3).


True to her Nekovalkyrja nature she has a healthy hunger for information, as well as being an eager learner and hard worker. Head held high, pride showing in whatever assignments or duties she undertakes, her unwavering loyalty remains with the Star Army of Yamatai and those she holds dear.

Her occasional, and at times quite volatile, mood changes have been known to on occasion get her in trouble with her superiors. Even as the more temperamental kind she does keep her cool when needed and is generally fairly patient, given that no-one has insulted her. She treats everyone with respect, believing peace is more important than petty squabbles. Anything in regards to sexual topics and conducts, especially when concerning herself, will make her feel uncomfortable and rather embarrassed.


Her love for literature is best noted by her habit of always carrying a book with her, sometimes even in battle akin to a good luck charm. The same goes for a small, refillable, lightweight paper sketchpad (roughly measuring 8x10x0.4cm) with a detachable pen/pencil for drawing as her artistic side mainly takes form in this way.

She is not too picky about food in general. Even with the Nekovalkyrja's main food group mainly consisting of rice and seafood, she will rarely say no to a proper steak from time to time, preferably medium-rare. As far as sweet things go, her soft spot lies with dangos and different berry and fruit sorbets. If offered alcoholic beverages she will usually kindly decline due to not being able to hold her liquor too well.


Unnecessary ruckus disturbing her peace and quiet tends to have an instant effect on her temperament, often making her snap at who or what happens to be the cause of it. Asides from detesting dimwits along with self-centered individuals and having an almost morbid fear of needles, she has very few dislikes overall at the current time due to her young age and inexperience in life.

History and Background

History of Amaya Shiori.


Before Roleplay History.

In Roleplay

In YE 33, at the rank of Santô Hei, she was assigned to Toushi Starfighter Squadron (7SF-01) which flew its missions off the YSS Densetsu.4)5) Upon arrival on the ship she was introduced to Robert Conagher, after which the squadron was met by Taisho Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko and Chujo Motoyoshi-Yamada Ayano at the Dance Club on Hotaru Star Fortress, the Falcon's Feather. After a brief meeting and the departure of the Flag Officers, there are several explosions in the daance club at which time they discover they are under attack by Mishhuvurthyar Parasites. Speculations ensue, their conclusion being they are under a parasite attack and are thusly forced to maneuver through the infested corridors whilst escorting the Taisho to safety. Pilots Murasaki Emiko and Amaya Shiori alongside technician Robert Conagher were subsequently promoted to the rank of Ittô Hei for their good service. During the commotion, two parasite infected Nekovalkyrjas make their way by shuttle to their designated rendezvous point. Having successfully fulfilled their task, they are carrying a datapad containing the specifications for components related to Hotaru and Himitsu's new hyperspace fold drives.6)

After the successful rescue of Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko, the Toushi Squadron is briefed by Motoyoshi Misato for their new mission. Their task is the safe retrieval of the stolen datapad and securing any loose ends to ensure all information leaks are eliminated. Freyja Oinari joins the team during the briefing.Motoyoshi Misato, Amaya Shiori, and Murasaki Emiko are assigned to Hayabusa V6 Starighters; Saori Toru, Robert Conagher and Freyja Oinari to the T7 Racoon. They are to enter the damaged Production Bay, get the stolen datapad from Engineering, and get out. Sessei Gunship Squadron and Shinchou Gunship Squadron will support, leaving one remaining Gunship Squadron with the YSS Densetsu. The squadron deploys with the gunships, and contact is made while the gunships act as a distracting force. the group tries to slip the shuttle in relatively quietly amid the fighting. Amaya Shiori and Murasaki Emiko have a heart to heart on the battlefield.7)

In YE 35, towards the end of her shore leave, Shiori is promoted to Jôtô Hei for her continued service within the fleet and is assigned to a personal escort mission by Taisho Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko Here Shiori reunites with, not only her previous commanding officer but also an old crew member, Robert, whom she is more than happy to team up with once more.

Transition (Pre-Adoption)

Amaya Shiori continued to fly missions off the YSS Densetsu from YE 35 until YE 41 when she transferred at the request of Taisho Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko to the First Expeditionary Fleet. She climbed the ranks to Jôtô Heisho. Upon the invitation of Katsuko, she joined the Motoyoshi Clan. She was assigned as a Star Army Pilot on Gemini Star Fortress until YE 42.

In YE 42 she was assigned to the 17th Strategic Bomber Group "Dragons" on the YSS Tokyo. She was one of the many pilots who risked their lives at the Battle Of Glimmergold in YE 43. With the declaration of the end of the Kuvexian War, Shiori transferred to the Star Army Reserve. She attends training once a month at Fort Tokyo.

After leaving the service in YE 43, Amaya Shiroi took a job thanks to the arrangements of the Yugumo Workers Federation with the Yugumo Corporation. Being a member of the Motoyoshi Clan and a veteran of the Star Army of Yamatai she was given a position as Chief of Communications at Port Jiyuu.


Amaya Shiori was in the Star Army of Yamatai so she possesses all of the Star Army Common Skills.

She is also trained in the following skill areas:

  • Leadership -Gets along with most and will set aside all personal differences she may have for the sake of completing the task or mission at hand. Prefers taking on secretarial assignments or being second in command but will gladly take the lead if none more capable is present at the time.
  • Communications - She has familiarized herself with the basics of radio operation and procedures thoroughly, enabling her to receive from and make transmissions to others through headsets, starships, power armor, and shuttles both in and out of combat. Furthermore, she is also fluent in both Yamataian and Nepleslian, using them flawlessly, making mundane tasks such as writing reports or filling forms and eg. issuing orders while under fire a piece of cake. She took further training with Yugumo Corporation when she started her position there.
  • Fighting - Her basic combat training was not complete without a few mishaps here and there, failure usually causing her to lose slight control of her temper thusly earning her an ear-bashing from time to time. Being of the rather stubborn variant and through rigorous self-discipline lessons, she still managed to master operating power armors with ease, much to her instructors' amazement. The same applied to the armed and disarmed training in both normal and zero gravity, which also included an unfortunate incident with a fork and hand which will not be discussed in further detail. Preferring long-range to hand-to-hand combat, she showed particular aptitude in the usage of energy pistols such as the Type 30 NSP. When it comes to blades, she is skilled in using a knife but would rather pick something more akin to a katana or wakizashi for a weapon under this category.
  • Technology Operation - She can operate computer systems that use the Kessaku OS (found on all Star Army starships) with ease, hoping to one day be able to operate all PANTHEON systems efficiently. In addition, she has very few to no problems with entering information, searching for more showing her curious side, and sometimes getting her sidetracked by looking up more than what a task asked for.
  • Starship Operations - Though not a major area of interest as such, she is still well versed in both cartography and navigation. Naturally, this would mainly be due to her current assignment and aim to further her career in the Star Army of Yamatai, even if not necessarily in the capacity of a pilot or captain of a fleet. Wanting to understand the inner and outer workings of a starship, both manual and mechanical, made her pay close attention to every detail whenever given the opportunity to follow the procedures on the bridge.
  • Mathematics - Numbers are not one of her stronger points but none less she completed her basic mathematics training, including up to algebra and trigonometry. She tries to avoid any hassle which would include a massive amount of complex mathematics when possible, equations however do tend to catch her eye in particular.


Work In Progress.
