Ayano's Personality

Hyperactive. Beyond that single descriptor, Ayano is a happy person with seemingly limitless energy and enthusiasm for whatever she turns her attention to, what- or whoever that may be. In conversation she is animated and expressive and will attempt to include everyone near her to the fullest of her abilities whether she knows them or not, giving her the ability to make friends quickly. Not afraid of expressing her opinions unless she is aware that it would hurt someone’s feelings. Loves having fun, in whatever forms it should take. Doesn’t mind being alone if there is something for her to do, Ayano will invent something to do – usually involving the nodal system – if she has no set tasks. Wherever she goes Ayano will always take nodal dust with her, stored in small metal cylinders in the pouch on her belt.

  • Likes: Being happy and having fun, femtomachines, keeping starships in top condition.
  • Dislikes: Unnecessary strictness, meanness, broken starships, boredom!
  • Goals: To master the use of nodal technology as if it were an extension of her body.

Ayano's History

Summarized Events


Ayano was created as a Ketsurui Zaibatsu NH-17 during the start of YE 28, and as such has been alive for barely a year. During that time she was found to have a strong affinity with starships - specifically keeping them running and in top condition - and was promptly trained as a Starship Engineer, which suited her perfectly. Showed early signs of interest in the nodal system as an artistic instrument rather than just another tool, and has cultivated that view at every possible opportunity. Late in her time at the academy Ayano created a model of her idea for a feasible design of a Deep-Space Repair vessel as part of a starship engineering subject. Despite the fact that the project was only meant to showcase the design principles she had learnt, Ayano took to the model enthusiastically and went into much greater detail than was necessary. The end result was far beyond anyone's expectations and impressed the instructors enough that it was sent off to Ketsurui Ship Yards, where after investigation and testing it was soon realised as the Anri-class DSR. After completing her training Ayano was offered the opportunity by Ketsurui Zaibatsu to transfer into a brand new NH-29 series Nekovalkyrja body, which she immediately accepted.

Ayano's Skills

Art and Vocations

A follow-on from her experience and skill in operating nodal technology, Ayano likes using the femtomachines that saturate the air of Star Army ships as if it were an artistic instrument, whether it be to help express herself by having a question mark appear over her head when she is confused or to form something just for the sheer pleasure of creating.


Ayano is familiar with basic radio operation and procedures and can make transmissions to and receive transmissions from other characters through headsets, starships, power armour, and shuttles in both combat and non-combat conditions. Ayano is fluent in English and Japanese, and can communicate via telepathy. She can speak and write both correctly and efficiently and can write reports, fill forms, issue orders under fire, etc. Speaks a lot, with vivacity, and is rather animated.


It’s in her job description, and Ayano has learnt what they taught her at the academy. While she may not be able to completely design and build you a new starship from scratch, she does know how and why starships are put together the way they are, and can apply this knowledge to her job. However she can build really cool model starships, with the aid of the nodal system of course.


Along with every other Neko, Ayano received hand-to-hand combat training and the usual follow up rigorous training program. She is skilled and experienced in combat both in Yamatai-like conditions and in zero gravity, with and without weapons. Weapons she is trained in include energy pistols, energy rifles, knives, grenades, anything she cooks, and power armour.

Maintenance and Repair

Being trained as a Starship Engineer means that Ayano can make effective repairs to any part of a starship, provided she has the right equipment of course. By the same token she can also perform maintenance and upgrades on all manner of equipment and systems, familiarity with a device being only a quick telepathic link to MEGAMI away.


Ayano received basic mathematics training, to including up to algebra and trigonometry.

Technology Operation

Ayano is capable of operating any computer system that uses the Kessaku OS, found on all Star Army starships. She is proficient in entering and/or searching for information. She is also quite skilled in operating nodal systems for the purposes of repair or in the construction of new items.
