Lt. Commander Yuriko Star is another bythebook officer. Yuriko joined the UPSF to give her life structure and attepts to obey the rules in almost every situation. However she unlike Yamamoto has no problem telling Tylor that he has done something wrong and will even resort to slapping him when he gets too far out of line. Yuriko also tries to downplay her gender making herself a soldier first and then a woman. This is a sore subject for her when someone comments about Tylor039s obvious attraction to her looks pointing out that she has never used her appearance to get ahead an equally sore point for her is her budding attraction to him. Yuriko is one of the most rational and levelheaded officers on the Soyokaze. While she is senior to Yamamoto her speciality as an intelligence officer places her outside the chain of command.
