As a KAIMON/Ascendant Consort, Takeda Sayako has some degree of control over her appearance, to include changing the color of her skin, hair, and eyes, the length of her hair (and thus her hairstyle). She may also make small changes to her facial features and body proportions by taking in or expelling liquids or gases to inflate or deflate cavities in the Yarvex Foam of her structure. However, she continues to use the appearance shown by the holographic projectors when she occupied a EM-J5 Flying Assistant Robot Series (FARS) chassis: that of a slender, young Yamataian woman with hime-cut black hair, soft brown eyes, and ivory skin. She is always impeccably groomed and dressed, generally always wearing a uniform unless in a situation where fashion or custom dictate otherwise.
Even after attaining full sentience, the EM-J5-M3600 - Emoticon pack's configuration is still very dominant. Acting like the typical Class Representative, she's strict, dedicated, meticulous, disciplined, and more than a little nosy and bossy. She likes to ensure everything is to standard, dotting every 'i' and crossing every 't.' She also possesses a great deal of ambition, and early on it was more often than not on behalf of another, usually her former owner Motoyoshi Tachiko. Over time, that ambition began to extend to her own plans.
Viewing interactions with others more as information gathering exercises than satisfying a social need, she often takes the opportunity to study, or experiment with, their behavior. To her, everything is science– just an informational feed. This is not to say she doesn't find social interactions pleasurable at times, but it's hardly a core drive as it might be with a social species like humans. She does maintain relationships with those she is in contact, but there is an inherent asymmetry involved.
As her personality has developed, she has begun to develop something like contempt for organic species. As she's generally unfailingly polite, even when openly bossing others around or criticizing them, it is rare to see a glimpse of this side of her. However, it does show a bit more often as the feelings deepen.
Takeda Sayako began her existence as a humble EM-J5-1a - FARS SAOY issued to the then-named Takeda Tachiko in early YE 42 while she was in quarters aboard the YSS Eucharis. Tachiko installed a EM-J5-M3600 - Emoticon pack with the “Class Representative (Yamataigo: 学級委員 – Gakkyuiin)” configuration. This particular personality configuration was especially quirky, being very ambitious and driven to help Tachiko succeed. In particular, the assistant drone was essential in handling her owner's luck in the Last Chance Salvage Giveaway, ensuring that the goods were sold at a good price and the proceeds were invested properly. It was the drone, going through Tachiko's collection of recipes and ideas, that led to the creation of Takeda House and Takeda Fleet. Her name comes from Tachiko's attempt to pronounce FARS SAOY phonetically.
After the release of the KAIMON/Ascendant Consort in YE 43, Motoyoshi Tachiko had the FARS's personality module and memory matrix transferred into one of the new bodies. Displaying some contempt for her old form, Takeda Sayako had Tachiko return it to surplus. The immense increase in processing power available to her led to a cascading growth effect. It was not long in her new form before Takeda Sayako attained full sentience and dutifully reported it to her masters. Opting to stay with Yugumo Corporation, she was promoted to a junior executive position, whose primary duty was to oversee the various ventures that Tachiko managed upon her deployment aboard the YSS Mazu.
Soon, she grew frustrated that after becoming sentient, her PANTHEON Module had been deactivated. She felt she could not properly serve a clan or company so intimately connected with the military without it. So, in YE 43, she joined the Star Army of Yamatai1). Initially intending to be a reservist, instead she became excited at the prospect of independence for the first time, and chose to become a Star Army Science Officer in active duty service, leaving the First Expeditionary Fleet behind altogether. She became an officer based on the recommendation of Ketsurui-Motoyoshi Katsuko, and was assigned to the First Fleet, becoming the Science Officer of the YSS Kōun2).
While aboard the YSS Kōun, Sayako took point on a First Contact mission with an alien government. She provided plans to replicate her custom telepresence drone, so that she could explore along with them while her main body remained aboard her posted ship.
