"As you wish."

Formerly a security officer aboard the Locus Solus, Amaterasu has been serving her people for quite some time: first during their initial invasion foray, nearly a century ago, and then since as a special operative in the secret war between the Veruni Radicals and Moderates. She has earned her place as a trusted soldier in the Radicals faction, and serves under Fereydoon's command. However, it may be her devotion to her sickly sister Kaguya that most defines Amaterasu... and provides her with much of the reason she needs to stay her course. No matter what.

Background

Born aboard the Locus Solus, Amaterasu has seen both the void of space and ruin of Filgaia. Her talents were honed early on towards the arts of battle, and she has eagerly cultivated them since to defend her people: first a security officer, then a soldier to battle the threats without, and most recently a soldier battling the threats within Veruni society... by any means necessary.

Developments - Chapter 1, Acts 1-4

  • Throughout most of Chapter 1 serving the Radicals as a special agent eliminating Moderate troubles from within Veruni society.

Developments - Chapter 1, Epilogue

  • Stopping by a shrine where the retrieved Mirror of De Soto had been laid to rest, she encounters a trio of individuals in the process of stealing said mirror. Engaging them goes awry and they escape, much to her displeasure.
  • Shortly after this incident, she investigates the presence of a human military unit in northern Elru and is among those transported to Lunar.

Developments - Chapter 2, Act 1

  • Soon after arriving in Spira, Amaterasu reunites with her sister, Kaguya, who explains the situation to her.
    • She pledges her blade and powers to Althena's Guard, claiming to be Kaguya's older sister (true), a warrior (true), and an elf (not true).
    • This also sees her face off against Sinspawn and then Sin itself at Operation Mi'ihen. Sin's presence manages to rattle the largely unflappable Veruni.
  • At the invasion of Luca, Amaterasu faces off first versus those in the streets and later against the mighty waitress Lunata while the Guard's Golems take the city defenders.
  • A disturbance outside the city a short time later draws her attention; to her displeasure it turns out to be CR-S01, aka Yue Rohay, traitor to the Veruni whose prison has somehow translocated itself to Lunar generally and Spira specifically. She takes responsibility for monitoring Yue immediately.
  • Most of her operations keep towards the Luca region generally afterwards as she works to try to hold what territory they have; she is of the opinion that they need more people to field if their aim is to push further north.
  • Shortly after a battle with Odessa near Macalania Temple she has a verbal altercation with her sister, where each delivers a salvo of their grievances with one another... and Amaterasu reveals a fact to Kaguya: it is impossible for both Veruni and humans to coexist on Filgaia.
  • After this she emerges to take on Sinspawn, rescuing Yue and her Minder on the field beforehand. She stays back as Sin and Lombardia duke it out with Ambrosius, her sister lingering just long enough to say one thing to her before vanishing.
    • Ambrosius and she patch up in the wake of Sin's final assault, and she urges he catch up with the others before she takes on the Sinspawn that roam the lands. She is not seen again after that.

Powers and Abilities

  • Melee combat - Amaterasu's training goes back to her childhood, and she took part in some of the earlier battles of conquest after their landing upon Filgaia. More recently she has taken the fight to the Moderates in their midst -- suffice to say, Amaterasu is an old and accomplished soldier and is very good at what she does.
    • Valkyrja - Amaterasu's spear and weapon of choice, a hallmark of Veruni technology. With both a collapsing yet stable shaft -- allowing for compact transport -- and a laser-light blade, Valkyrja provides Amaterasu with unbridled reach and devastation for whatever may stand against her.
  • Veruni martial arts - While she much prefers to use a weapon, Amaterasu is still a master of several forms of Veruni martial arts, and has acted as a teacher to some of the younger Veruni, her sister included. If pressed, she can resort to such means; she prefers the styles that make use of kicks, the better to utilize her long legs.
  • Magic - As with many Veruni, Amaterasu can make use of an Ether-like magic. Hers is darkness-aspected, and focuses on a mix of healing and support for herself and her allies, and debilitation or disorientation for her enemies.
  • Golem - Amaterasu has access to an excavated Golem which she can field if needed. Due to its limitations, Amaterasu prefers to only use it when necessary -- Inanna, while devastating on the field, is unfortunately rather fragile. Even more unfortunately, while the Golem can be repaired, there doesn't seem to be any way to reinforce its armoring, even with all the technology the Veruni possess -- however it was built, the trick to making its defenses stronger appears to be lost to time.
