Build and Skin Color: Susuyu has richly colored bronze skin, with a number of genetic tattoos marring the perfection of her skin along her back. She has a slender, but firmly lithe body, the results of a desire to keep herself looking physically fit, though her figure is almost “girlish” as a result.
Eyes and Facial Features: She has narrow, luminous golden eyes, which stand out clearly against her skin on a well worn face. Her face has the same lithe, narrow quality to it as the rest of her body, though most of the rough edges have faded at this point in her life.
Hair Color and Style: A long, dark auburn head of hair fills out her appearance rather nicely, settling in loose waves down to about her shoulders.
Distinguishing Features: Susuyu has very nearly turned her back into a record of her service, with the Star Army Hinomaru tattooed opposing her serial code on the lower right side of her back, with a listing of her postings lined up her back, originating at her serial number and progressing up, shown by the symbol most closely linked with each assignment. Finally, she has the kanji and the motto of the Second Fleet's emblem, her original posting, and the only one she shared with her twin sister, tattooed across the top of her back, crossing her shoulder blades.
Personality: Susuyu is a blunt, outspoken person. She focuses very heavily on her duty, and what she feels is right, with little regard to how others might perceive it, or respond to it, and tends to come off a bit abrasively as a result. She's very nationalistic at heart, and doesn't understand how some people can forget all that they owe to the nations they're born in. Her mannerisms tend to be a bit overbearing, and she's a realist where it counts, which results in a fairly dominant personality.
Enime Resaneyu (twin sister) Susuyu and her sister were created as a pair by the Star Army of Yamatai.
2nd SF (original) Susuyu and her sister, Resaneyu, were created and assigned to the Second Fleet of Yamatai in early YE 29, where they began service with the fleet immediately upon completion of their training. Susuyu was purely infantry, while her sister was a Star Army Caretaker, and so they spent a fair bit of time apart. After only a short time in active service, the Second Fleet was almost entirely eliminated in combat with the SMX, though both Susuyu and her sister survived to be part of the reformed fleet later. However, late in YE 30 Susuyu was transferred out of the fleet to a different section of the Yamataian military, and spent the next three years being transferred from unit to unit, always on the front-lines somewhere.
Finally, in early YE 33, Susuyu was transferred to the First Legion, ostensibly to assist with organizing and leading newer soldiers, since she had several years of combat experience at that point. The real reason was actually that she'd made a point of calling out several superiors in various positions on what she perceived as inappropriate or detrimental actions. Regardless of the veracity of her claims, she'd managed to irritate enough people higher up that they wanted her gone, and kicked her to the furthest place they could think of.
Completely unworried by the potential blacklisting of her name for any kind of advancement, Susuyu did her best in her new position, and served well, including during the Battle of Yamatai, where she was wounded for the second time during her now remarkably decorated career. Despite her decorations, her continued stubbornness pertaining to disagreements with officers all but guaranteed her lack of advancement, despite her complete loyalty to the precepts of the Star Army of Yamatai. This made her rather eminently attractive to certain elements of the military, though, when the need for loyal soldiers came up, especially ones who could be counted on to stand up to their leaders when it came to the Empire.
Susuyu has been over the basic Star Army training procedure many times through her career, and that definitely includes the communications procedures, which she knows inside and out at this point. She can use the standard comms systems in nearly any of the standard Yamataian equipment with ease, and is fluent in both Trade (Nepleslian) and Yamataian, though she's also picked up a smattering of words from a couple other languages as well. She's had plenty of experience with reports and forms of all kinds, and has experience with both giving and receiving orders while under duress and, at times, fire.
She is also fully proficient in the usage of the wireless communication system built into her body from birth, and the nuances to it's use.
As the core of Susuyu's chosen occupation, combat is by far her central training precept. She is confident in both the Mindy and Daisy armor systems, and at least familiar with the MCAS, though she's had little practical experience in it. She's proficient in movement and combat in the standard realms of combat, including zero-g and low-gravity environments, both via the weapons she's trained with, and in hand-to-hand combat.
She has extensive experience with the majority of the Army's standard firearms, as well as both the LASR and Plasma Rifle most commonly used with the PA systems. Her hand-to-hand experience includes both straight fists, the use of guns as physical weapons, and a small amount of knife fighting.
Though definitely not her specialty, Susuyu is fully capable of using any of the standard Kessaku OS systems found on most ships. She can find (and store) information relatively easily in any of those systems, but little else.
Susuyu has absolutely no head for numbers, despite being taught all of the way up to trigonometry. She can count things well, but anything much past the basics that can't be handled automatically in her head is beyond her unless she sits down to work it out.
Having lived for a greater portion of the Star Army's history than most nekovalkyrja, Susuyu has made it her goal to know the Star Army, both current and past. She firmly believes in the purpose of the SAoY, and wants to know as much about the organization as possible, the better to understand it.
As part of her efforts to be as capable in her duties as possible, Susuyu keeps a strict regimen of physical fitness, even though it is not strictly necessary, with the natural fitness of the nekovalkyrja. This includes both physical and cardio exercises, with her (private) favorite being swimming. She is a very capable swimmer as a result of her workouts, and much more physically aware of her own limitations and abilities than average.
Having spent time in the Legions, Susuyu made it her business to learn how to operate in a planet-bound situation, without the convenience of a ship or civilization. She is capable of finding her way in rougher terrain, creating and finding shelter, and providing for herself off of the land on a temporary basis. She is familiar with the processes for doing these things in unfriendly environments or enemy territory, but has no actual experience in those variations.
