Kurogane Miyuki[edit]

CALLSIGN: SNOW

Country of Origin: Japan


Character Intro

Miyuki had been only a little girl when her parents brought her with them to XCOM base when they both got hired for the project. As such she grow up looking at all the wonder of alien tech being studied and replicated by humanities best scientist and engineer. This experience shapes her fascination with all thing technological. She still remember clearly the excitement that permeate the entire base as the first Psi-lab construction is completed. She being one of the people that are detected as having high chance of being psionically active and undergoes the awakening process along with the volunteering XCOM soldier. She also remembers the dread she felt as she follows the surviving XCOM science and engineering division through the escape tunnel as the alien forces invades XCOM underground base.

Soon, she and the group of survivors established a place they called "The Forge" in one of XCOM's remote underground hangar that they managed to reclaim after the alien forces moved out after bombarding the area XCOM base located into a blasted desert. There she continue to learn and study technology while crafting and maintaining equipment for the local resistance movement that "The Forge" supplied in exchange for Alien tech that they looted. Part of the tech is disassembled and studied to improve their equipment and the rest is used to built a communication equipment to look for other XCOM survivors.

This situation continues for a while until one day they received comm contact with the reborn XCOM.

Lifepath[edit]

ORIGINS : Strange

She grew up looking at the original XCOM before the alien destroyed them. Her parents work in the original XCOM (research dept.) when it get activated. She grew up idolizing the likes of Dr Shen and Dr Vahlen, seeing the wonder they cooked up from reverse engineering alien tech (more like Dr Vahlen given her foward method in approaching tech and research?). A strange situation to grow up, looking at the rapidly developing tech. In addition, she is one of the people that are first discovered as psionically active when XCOM first Psi Lab is built.


- Country of Origin: Japan

- Affiliation : XCOM d6. phrase: 'seen the original, saw it destroyed first time'

- Element: Situation: First Psi Lab - the original XCOM developed its first Psi Lab, which was dependent on identifying psionic-potential XCOM operatives and subjecting them to untried and barely tested protocols. Phrase: 'psionic potential detected early'

- Element: Organization: XCOM Engineering - a dedicated corps of engineers and technicians who pull apart and study alien technology and then reassemble it into functional equipment for XCOM operatives. Phrase: 'wonder of alien tech'


FOCUS : Technology

Fleeing from the XCOM base, she and her parents join up with the survivor of XCOM engineering and research departement and build a place known as the forge where she learn most of her skill in research and making tech. She loved to play with her psionic ability but her passion is more on research and development of new tech.


- Element: Location: The Forge - Built by the surviving member of XCOM engineers and researchers. They provide the resistance with their equipment in exchange for tech from the alien that they research to improve their equipment. phrase: 'founding member... sort of'

- Attributes: Force of Will d8. Phrase: 'Experimental Method, Trial and Error'

- Affiliation: Resistance d6. Phrase: 'Interesting way to use equipment I make'

- Relationship: Resistance d6. Phrase: 'They are a good costumer'

- Meta Element: The Forge --> XCOM Engineering. Phrase: 'looking for survivor'

- Trait Statement: Resistance (They poorly understood their enemy's technology)


Life-changing Event : Manifestation

The Forge, after searching for a long time more XCOM survivors built a radio transmitter to further their search attempt. And look and behold, there is a response from none other than Bradford himself. He informed the ex XCOM research and engineering dept. that he is rebuilding XCOM and inviting them back.


- Elements: Situation: Putting the gang back together - leaders from the former XCOM are still alive and kicking. XCOM of old actively seeking out its former members to form a new XCOM

- Elements:

- Distinction: Role: Specialist d8. Phrase: 'totally born for this'

- Attributes: Tactics d8. Phrase: 'know your enemy'

  • Rix Pren d6, Phrase: 'interesting equipment'
  • Ms Whitechapel d6, Phrase: 'unsettling but dependable'

- Signature Asset: Gremlin d6. Phrase: 'build it myself'


Priority: Moving Foward

After getting somewhat reintegrated back to XCOM she can go back working on developing more tech and looking foward do all the tech that she can play with. And maybe playing with her psionic ability.


- Element: Props: XCOM Complete Backup Data. Records of their research and developed equipment. Supposedly lost during the invasion but knowing the leaders of XCOM, they should have backups somewhere else. Phrase: 'Know it's exist but not where'

- Affiliation: XCOM d10. Phrase: 'new war, new tactics'

- Relationship:

  • Templars d6. Phrase: 'Learning their new ways'
  • Diana Knight d6. Phrase: 'a good part of the team.'

Modus Operandi: Outside Normal Channel

Snow often hacked the enemy tech turning them against her enemy, sabotage their machinery or jury rigged them into viable tools with her knowledge of engineering, and a dash of Psionics ability.


- Meta Element: The Forge to The Factory. The forge has always been scouting (or hire some resistance member with equipment to do that) the factory or any other ADVENT facility, collecting information that they can use if they want to raid the place.

- Meta Element: Lily Shen and XCOM Complete Backup Data. Her father should have told her some clue about that.
