Chiharu no Iori

Chiharu Star Fortress, NK-X2-002, is an Iori-Class Star Fortress, and was transferred to the Second Expeditionary Fleet at the end of YE 31. Chiharu Star Fortress is named after Ketsurui Chiharu to honor the fallen Taisho.

Chiharu is the first Star Fortress assigned to the Second Expeditionary Fleet. It is one of the original Iori-Class Star Fortresses. During its service it has belonged to three different fleets as of this time.

Station Emblem

The emblem is relatively understated, the center of it consists of an image of an Iori-Class Star Fortress with the station motto across it.


Chiharu is shaped like all Iori-Class Star Fortress. Basically a large flat disk more than thirteen kilometers across and three kilometers high. The most prominent feature of the station are the sixteen large enclosed bays that circle the outer edge of the station.

After the death of Ketsurui Chiharu in YE 25, Chiharu's memory became integrated with the spiritual beliefs of Yamatai. People have claimed to have felt her presence or to have seen her spirit guide them through battle or even to have seen her ghost.

The temple on board the Chiharu no Iori was created so that the faithful could commune and worship. It is a duplicate of the one on Yamatai (Planet). It is located in a large chamber that is six decks high and 300 meters in diameter. The floor is covered in plush grass, the ceiling is a volumetric display that provides a representation of the sky above the temple on Yamatai (Planet).

The temple itself is a typical Shinto Shrine. Along the Sandō a path of large white stepping stones lead towards a set of white marble benches set along a curve in the garden of bellflowers and short well trimmed Yamataian Yews. There is a large weeping willow tree set further back from the benches down a much less worn path with a thick straw rope and white zigzag shaped pieces of paper attached to it.

A holographic image of Chiharu on the bridge of her namesake ship where she was killed appears in the Haiden. While the Honden houses a golden statue of Chiharu bathed in light.

The priestesses and priests at the temple wear the traditional Ketsurui red.
