Edit: Going with Soldier!
It doesn't take long for Ryuko to run 500 laps around the training field. It only took her 20 minutes to run that many times around the large field, and yet, she looks unsatisfied by her performance, as if she feels like she could do better than this. It takes Ryuko a bit to realize that she's not the only one on the field today. "Ah, you must be the recruiter the commander was telling me about," she stands up straight, and gives a formal salute, "Private Ryuko Ishikawa, Kurogane, at your service." She drops her salute to pick up a nearby water bottle and towel, "I am prepared to answer any questions you might have for me, so please, ask away."
• What inspired your service?
"Hm. I suppose you could say being a soldier is in my blood. Both my parents, Shou and Rin Ishikawa, were agents of A.E.G.I.S., and they both had a strong sense of justice, always fighting for what they believe to be right, always protecting those who need protecting. My parents were good people, which made what happened to them all the more tragic."
"They were betrayed by someone they trusted. Wolfgang Silvermane, a man my parents considered a close friend and a valuable ally, revealed himself to to be an agent of Ouroboros, an organization bent on controlling the world, after he had lead them into a trap. This whole time, he was using their trust against them, and once he had no more use for my parents, he decided it was time to dispose of them."
"I was there when it happened. I was following them in secret when I shouldn't have, and I saw it, the moment of his betrayal, and before I could do or say anything, there was an explosion, and the whole world went blank. When I woke up, I noticed my arms and legs were replaced with mechanical limbs. The explosion had left my body badly damaged, and if it wasn't for Professor Rockwell, I don't think I would've made it."
"Unfortunately, I can't say the same for my parents. The explosion took their lives. My parents, the people I looked up to the most, were now... gone."
"That's when I decided, that from that day forward, I would work to continue on their legacy. So I trained. I trained hard, everyday, for the past two years, using my new body to my advantage, to be the best agent I could be, to be someone they could both be proud of. My parents may be gone, but they still live on in my heart."
"Do I resent Wolfgang for what he did to them? Hm. I'd be lying if I said I didn't, but as much as I hate that man, I can't let myself be blinded by revenge. My parents wouldn't want that. I do not know what I will do if I see him again, but I will make sure he will face justice for his crimes, one way or another."
• What do you admire about A.E.G.I.S.?
"We are agents of justice, protecting the peace of this world. We work tirelessly to ensure the people are safe from superhuman threats. We are the shield that protects the innocent from evil, and we are the hammer that brings down justice on those who wish to harm them. We bring the light to the darkness, shining like a beacon of hope to those who need it, and as long as A.E.G.I.S. is still around, no evil shall go unpunished."
• Who within A.E.G.I.S. is worthy of your trust?
"Hm. I would say there are two who I would say have my complete trust. The first is Professor Rockwell, who I owe my life to. I would not be here today if it wasn't for her, and though she can be a little... eccentric, she has a good heart, and I've been going to her regularly to do some check-ups on my limbs. She has told me often that I need to learn to 'lighten up a little,' and quiet frankly, I'm not sure what she means by that. I'm plenty light already, thanks to her expert engineering, and I am not sure how I am able to lighten myself up more? She has also given me a cell phone, and if I am honest, I do not understand most of the messages she sends to me. She uses these things she calls "ee-moe-gees" a lot, and I am not sure how to respond to them."
"Anyways, aside from her, the other person would be Commander Irene Hawkeye. Commander Hawkeye was a close friend of my parents, and she was the one who gave me an opportunity to be an agent, and she has even offered to train me personally. Her training was strict, and she has forced me to go beyond my limits multiple times, but it's thanks to her training that I was able to be a proper agent of A.E.G.I.S. The commander has done a lot for me over the past two years, and for that, I am grateful to her."
• Why were you assigned to lead your team?
"That's... hm. I know the commander has assigned me the role as leader, since she believes I have the potential to be one, but I am... not sure if I believe that. For the longest time, I've been a soldier following the orders she has been given, and the idea of suddenly going from that to giving orders is... strange, to say the least. Perhaps the commander sees something in me that I do not? I cannot say for sure. My parents were leaders, but I... am not. I will give it my best try, but if I am being honest, I would not mind passing the role of leader to someone else who is worthier than me. I just do not think being a leader suits me."
• Why do you care about the team?
"When you're out in the field, fighting whatever evil may be out there, you need people you can trust, people you know who will have your back, and we can accomplish so much more together than we would alone."
"...That, and Professor Rockwell has told me that this would be a good opportunity to actually have friends who are my own age, which is... true, I suppose. I haven't exactly had that many friends growing up. In fact, I've had none, since I've been spending a lot of my time training, and doing field missions. I guess it would be nice to have people to discuss tactics and battle strategies with. That would be an appropriate thing to talk about with friends, right?"
