Personality & CharacterEdit
Talvikki displays signs of the cheerful friendliness which is common amongst the yacht club.
Talvikki's background is mostly unknown, other than the fact she joined the yacht club at some point in the past and that she is a skilled gamer.
Talvikki was present in the yacht club's room, seated at the round holographic table, when Kane entered introducing himself as the club's new advisor. During the long weekend, she went with the rest of the yacht club to perform pre-flight checks on the Odette II, ready for the practice cruise. She was on the port side of the dock when the hatch was opened and expressed mild admiration when Kane said he was going to inspect the outside before boarding, before going to inspect her assigned area. She was shuttling a crate when Kane entered the main corridor .
Talvikki was seen taking a test during the exams. After the exams and end-of-term assembly were over, she joined the other yacht club members, assembled on the lawn outside, ready for the trip into space. When the Odette II departed from the relay station, Talvikki was stationed on the engine console, on the upper level of the bridge .
That night, Talvikki headed for bed while Marika and Chiaki were left on watch. The next day, Talvikki was present with Flora on the lower level of the bridge while Marika and Chiaki were listening in on Kane's transmission to the Bentenmaru. She was present on the upper bridge when Marika explained the situation that they were facing and laughed with the others at Jenny's joke about the bonus of a villain for their cruise. Like the others, she was pleased when Marika suggested with confidence that they fight off the enemy themselves.
Later, Talvikki was on the upper bridge with Mylene and Flora when Marika was talking to Jenny about her plan. She was stationed on a console on the upper bridge when Lynn discovered the stealth unit that was producing the fake ghost ship signature .
When Marika came onto the bridge, on the night of the battle, Talvikki was seated at the engine console with Sasha. During the attack, when the dummy system was 50% hacked and Marika asked whether the Odette II's systems were functioning normaly, Talvikki confirmed that the primary and secondary engines were online. She stifled her laughter when Jenny made a joke regarding the Lightning 11's attempts to wake up what they probably thought were a bunch of idiot high school girls.
After the attack was thwarted, the Odette II continued on its journey and Talvikki made it safely back to the Sea of the Morning Star with the others .
