Born in YE 07, Ayame was originally created to serve as a foot soldier in the battles of the second elysian war. Having fought hard and earned respect, she accompanied Yui's party to liberate the realm of hell, but in the process she was killed by a sniper having saved Yui from his shot.

After being respawned, Ayame earned both a promotion and and a medal. She continued to work hard and earn respect and eventually got a formal education and promoted to commander of a ship.

Time passed and 18 years after she was born she started commanding the YSS Celia, a ship in the 3rd XF, and was soon after made a Taisho and commander of the fleet. Her first act as commander was to explore the planet of Fenyar, upon arriving she decided to help the inhabitants cure some strange disease, but was soon after kidnapped. She managed to escape with the help of one of the Sha'Nai and went back to her crew. Soon after, there was a mass slaughter of the people's of Fenyar and some casualties were taken by the crew of the 3rd XF. Soon after arriving back at the ship she cloned herself in order to investigate the possibilities of peace and found that a man she had feelings for had become the King of Fenyar. The clone stayed on Fenyar until the end and died there, this became a breaking point for Ayame and she left the 3rd XF and made her way to Yamatai where the Empress appointed her as the Mistress Governor. Thinking perhaps the new appointment would strengthen her will to move on she took the job with enthusiasm. Soon after she sadly realized that any relationship with Taisa Ashigari was quite impossible given their conflicting assignments. She brought her newest daughter, Kohana to Yamatai soon after and sent her away to school with the Empress' daughter and Michiko's father.

Ayame later invited Taisa Ashigari to Yamatai and after a large fight with the man over her current husband the Taisa left Yamatai with her youngest daughter Kohana. To Ayame's knowledge Kenji then raped and killed her daughter. To her disappointment because she had many questions, her other daughter Kikyo had killed Kenji upon arrival at the scene. Soon after, Ayame found, what she hoped would be eternal happiness with her new husband.

The Shadow Viper Betrayal

It was discovered in early YE 29 by incarcerated members of the YSS Sakura that it was believed by members of a so-called so-called True Nekovalkyrja Empire movement that the Empress had in fact been slain by her own samurai guardians. (see roleplay transcripts under Pumpkin character entry)

In YE 30, the crew of the YSS Miharu uncovered troubling logs entries from a computer core pilfered from the Daughters of Eve that former-SAINT director Kyoshi Kikyo had been paid a rather extraordinary sum for services rendered very close to the day Empress Ayame died. Seeing that the money transfers followed similar processes for previous assassinations, it was strongly suspected then that Empress Ayame suicide had been staged to conceal a much more sinister death despite Kikyo being Ayame's own daughter.

In YE 34 a failed assassination attempt against Ketsurui Kotori and Ketsurui Yuumi unmasked a sect of rogue Ketsurui Samurai, thereby known as the Shadow Vipers, whom had indeed cooperated with Kyoshi Kikyo.

In YE 38, during an attempt on Empress Himiko's life, the Shadow Viper leader - Ebi Nadeko - admitted to her involvement and the subsequent deception in the regard of Empress Ayame's death.
