She styles herself in accordance to the historical nature of the vessel she represents with an emphasis on her upper body, which captivates many who lay their eyes upon her.

Her daily life is meant to serve the Royal Navy with the grace it deserves. It seems as if she's in charge of security at the Joint Military Exercise, but...


The third Illustrious-class ship, and affiliated with the Royal Navy. Much like her older sister Illustrious, she's a royal lady who's elegant (?) and lovely.
