Izuki is an very hardworking Yamataian starship captain, serving in the Star Army of Yamatai. Izuki is a NPC turned PC played by 5tar. She captains the YSS Asterope. Her orders thread can be found here.
Izuki has a slender and sleek feminine frame with fare skin. She has young stern Asian facial features; an elegantly curved nose and a pair of sharp slanted steel-gray eyes like those of a falcon. The Yamataian officer keeps her silky jet black hair long, with a simple bang that draws a straight line over her thin brow. The hair's length when let down comes to her middle back, so because of this, she keeps it normally in a tight bun. Izuki's general look with her straight posture and well maintained appearance makes her noble upbringing very obvious.
Outwardly Izuki is ever deserving of her noble birth, she is a very proud, ambitious and headstrong young Yamataian. Though she is still somewhat inexperienced, Izuki isn't to be taken lightly, she is a fearless leader and attributed with quite a impressive dedication to honor this of course is thanks to the Kameko house. It's obvious to see she has pride in her Yamataian birth, and because of her quick nature of being one of the first to volunteer it's also obvious to see she is eager to prove her self. Born in a traditional family of a smaller nobble line, Izuki carries many of those conservative views common to older Yamataians and holds herself with an almost samuraiesque dignity and follows a code handed from warrior to warrior in her family. A few more subtle and hidden things about the young woman is her respect for the lower tier of a command chain, and more forgiveness towards newer recruits then anything. This trait was taken from her previous commander, the Red Lion. But just like her teacher, Izuki is not afraid to discipline her troops.
*Izuki is actually really bad discussing any topics regarding intimacy.
Glory, Classical Music, Ambiance, Honorable People, New Starships, Teas, Sushi, Salmon Sashimi, Colors Blue and Silver.
Nobles that don't follow the traditions of old. Higher ups who forget about the lower raking members of the military.
She bowed at her hips in a most formal and respectful bow. “I will provide you a swift victory Saiga-taii, on my honor as a member of the Kameko Clan.” With that she then stood back and turned her head to face down over the bridge.
She stepped forward and presented a data pad and placed it on the desk. “Though I would enjoy spending more time with the Senbu, I believe that if I am to honor my name and my ancestors, my path is not with the Senbu. I have caught word that a new squadron of warships is forming and I consider myself worthy of commanding a ship for the Empire. Again, this request isn't rooted in any ill will towards any part of the Senbu or its crew. I just think that, because of the nature of this future project, I can rise up to a higher potential to give so much more to the Empire as well as my clan.” Izuki bowed her head once more and awaited their answers.
Kameko Izuki was born in to this noble house of shadows as the daughter of the clan leader's brother; Kameko Ryota and to his wife Kameko Umi. She was the only child of the warrior and his consort wife. From the day she could walk, she was given a mock weapon, from the day she could talk she was ordered listen. Izuki's honourable father like his parents before him, and their parents before them, taught Izuki the code of the Kameko. It was to become her laws for all things in her life, for she walked the path of the Kameko, the path that she could never leave.
She had spent the earlier part of her life living on Yamatai in the sprawling castle of her clan, which had stood since the age of the first empires. Izuki was schooled by various tutors from within the clan, teachings of war and combat taking precedence, but of course she had to be knowledgeable in all things, so she was of course given a full curriculum of a wide spectrum spanning from etiquette and speech to sciences and arithmetic. She wasn't fully exposed to people outside her expansive clan until she was six-teen, when she was ceremoniously enrolled into the military. From then on, the entire house has had their eyes on the girl; after all, she was a candidate for the future leader of the Kameko. The current house leaders Noboru and his wife Akane were unable to produce a child due to complications. So this meant that the next to rule over the house would have to be either Izuki or her male cousin Daisuki who was born on the very same day, making the two on equal grounds for the title and role.
It was a cold February in YE 26 when Izuki had joined her first vessel, the YSS Meisei, a Irim Gunship of the Second Standard Fleet. Because of family connections, she was assigned special armor unit which served as the YSS Meisei's scout team, in this role Izuki obviously excelled because of her clan's training. For a year she deployed as a Santô Hei while the YSS Meisei fought bravely to reclaim a planet in the name of the empire. The ten month mission was finally completed and from there she received her promotion to Nitô Hei during the changing of year, which then ushered in a new era for the Meisei and Empire.
It was the year of the new Empress Ketsurui Ayame, when the previous empress Ketsurui Yui became Master Fleet Admiral to the Star Army. That was also the era of the Xyainbor Campaign. The second fleet along with the YSS Meisei were ordered to join the effort; this was when Izuki got her first true bitter taste of war. The infiltration specialist at the time was second in command to a team on the Meisei's 'Kage' armor squadron. Their mission was to gain control of one of the SMX battleships, via stealth entry. Everything was going well during the mission until one of the members of Izuki's team was detected, the leader at the time came out of hiding to rush and save the rookie. But unfortunately it was too late, both solders were lost, but Izuki and the rest of her team remained alive. They did end up completing their mission, despite the loss, thanks to the Kameko-Hei's steady nerves and instant rise to leadership. Like the members of her team, the YSS Meisei was also lost during the Campaign. But Izuki and her two remaining comrades managed to escape the ship, having to abandon the vessel in a tactical retreat.
It was a hard loss to swallow, but Izuki did not end up wallowing in sorrow with the aftermath. Instead she quickly joined another ship, this time she was offered a position on the bridge of yet another another Irim-class Heavy Gunship, the YSS Shimasu, partly again because of her family's connections and also from her show of skill in the field as a perceptive solider. Officially she was a Junior Star Ship Operator, which meant she was a lesser bridge op who assisted with mission operations and combat relaying, but also she was learning the field of intel analysis, and was quickly becoming a skilled sensors operator. She served for six months doing this, but with the next year and another two missions later, she was given a new rank of Jôtô Hei and was given the new designation of Junior Mission Operator, where she did heavy intel and scanner work to relay the tactical information to field commanders in the YSS Shimasu's charge.
After the completion of her third mission aboard the YSS Shimasu, Izuki had decided that she wished to ascend higher into the ranks of the Star Army; she wanted to become a full fledged intel and bridge officer. So, with recommendation from the Commanding Officer of the YSS Shimasu, she enrolled into the Kyoto War College. For that year Izuki engrossed herself in her studies. She only got to complete the intermediate level officer training program, but never the less, it was a feat praised by the Kameko clan and put her a step ahead of her cousin for leadership of the house. Who during the year was still a infantry pilot. The Species Restriction Order at this time did effect the Geshrin born, so that was the same year that the she returned to the Kameko estate, so that she could ceremoniously receive permission to leave her previous body behind, so she could serve the clan and the empire. Her Uncle Noboru, the leader of the Kameko clan, was so impressed with her actions that not only did he give her the approval to take on her new Yamataian body, he also bestowed upon her one of the Kameko's treasures. She was handed down an ancient steel wakizashi which was normally given to the head warrior of the clan, this meant that by station, she was the house's retainer and by all means, first in line to the throne.
So in the New Year, with her new rank of Shoi and favor within her family, Izuki was prepared for the next stage in her young life. After a month of sitting in to learn more in the ways of the Kameko, she left for the military yet again. This is when she was scouted out by a woman who was called Red Lion of the 1st XF; Shosa Endo Shizuka. It was a new ship, larger then any Izuki had ever served on before. The upside to this was because of the young crew, Izuki was given a fully fledged Star Ship Operator position on the intel team. But just as swiftly as they completed their second battle, Izuki was trusted with a much higher position and the new rank of Chui. She became a Senior Star Ship Operator, whose job at the time was to oversee the chaos on the bridge and make it into manageable intel for the Captain and her executive officer. The Kameko officer was quite proficient at her job and was credited for her hard work from mostly the Senbu's XO; Nicholas Saiga. Who she had boundlessly defended against the vicious roamer-mill aboard the Anri-Class Deep-Space Repair Vessel. During her service to the YSS Senbu, Izuki was given the command of a captured Vampire-class Patrol Craft. Though, her first voyage as a Starship Commander was cut short in the battle by another ship ramming itself in the YSS Senbu's MRB, this caused much anger and yearning in the Yamataian woman for another shot.
Izuki was then promoted to Taii during an Imperial Promotion Ceremony aboard the Aries Station, graced by the presence of Taisho Yui, the very commander of the Star Army. After that, she requested for permission to leave the Senbu in her quest for a much more glorious position as a Captain of her own vessel, this was after catching word that a new squadron of warships was forming in the 1st XF. Much to the reluctance of her commanders, she was allowed an honourable discharge from the Senbu, but with a promise to join back under the Red Lion's command once Shizuka had become a Taisho herself. So then with two letters of recommendation, from two very prestigious people in the Star Army, Izuki was off.
Her second chance would come. She submitted her request to join the First Expeditionary Fleet's 11th Squadron, and no faster than her application was in, Izuki was given new orders. She was to command the YSS Asterope under the command of Taisa Hokusai Akiyo.
