Real Name: Nene M. Romanova

Nene is brilliant when it comes to computers and their uses (and mis-uses). She has no problem hacking into the AD Police's own files and using the information she finds to further the causes of the Knight Sabers (or give herself a raise).
Inside her hardsuit, Nene's ability to control and manipulate computers and electronic equipment is magnified even further. Software and hardware installed in her suit allows her to serve as the communications link between the other three Knight Sabers, jam enemy communications or radar, listen in on unencrypted radio channels, quickly hack into outside systems, and even take over control of unguarded mecha.
Physically, Nene is the weakest of the Knight Sabers, both in and out of her hardsuit. While her abilities to hack computers and manipulate data are second-to-none, she is easy to outclass in a one-on-one fight. Her hard suit's built-in armament is a simple machine gun in one gauntlet (this is intentional, as Sylia had no desire to allow Nene access to high-powered weaponry that she wasn't equipped to handle), but this is almost completely ineffectual against an armoured target. Knowing this, she tries to stay towards the rear in combat and lets the other members of the team do the heavy lifting when it comes to combat. This is something that Linna never lets her forget.
Nene is the youngest member of the Knight Sabers, and was actually Sylia's first recruit into the team. When Sylia posted a very complicated code to the Internet, Nene was the first person who broke it, decrypted it, and followed the instructions to meet up with Sylia and join the squad.
Nene is currently employed by the AD Police, but she does not serve in a front-line officer capacity. Most of her service involves coordinating officer movements during attacks and raids, or (during especially slow periods) traffic cop duties.
Nene and Linna have a sort of mutual antagonism towards one another that isn't exactly open hostility, but goes slightly beyond just playful banter. While both Priss and Linna tend to give Nene a hard time about her role as "support" instead of "front-line fighter", Priss is more apt to leave it at some good-natured ribbing while Linna has no problem making it personal by bringing up Nene's weight or lack of success with men.
