Introduction

Yuka Kon ((こん)結花(ゆか) Kon Yuka?) is the Operator of Kuruma Unit.

AppearanceEdit

Kon is a light-skinned young woman of average height with big, almond-shaped eyes with blue pupils. Her short black hair is cropped in a bobcut with a fringe. She wears contact lenses.[1] Her attires of choice appears to be the combination of a blouse with a knee-length skirt and stockings.[2][3][4] In her trion body she wears the standard Operator uniform.

PersonalityEdit

Kon is considerate, together person with a penchant for looking after others.[5][6] Her serious, no-nonsense personality often causes her to become exasperated with Taichi Betsuyaku's extreme clumsiness and boisterous nature,[7] and more in general she will not hesitate to speak up if she believes someone to act or speak in an insensitive manner.[8][9][10]

RelationshipsEdit

Kō MurakamiEdit

Kon and Murakami are teammates and friends, and on occasion hang out together with the rest of Suzunari First.[11] She will often ask him how he feels about fighting opponents he has never or rarely clashed against before.[12][13] She mostly[14] addresses him by his first name followed by the honorific -kun.[15][13]

Tatsuya KurumaEdit

Kon hangs out with her teammates in her free time, suggesting they are on friendly terms.[11] Kuruma often has to calm her down when Betsuyaku's shenanigans frustrate her. He addresses her by her surname followed by the diminutive suffix -chan.[16]

Taichi BetsuyakuEdit

Betsuyaku's klutziness, which his other teammates tolerate or find amusing, tends to irritate Kon, causing her to sometimes scold[10] or even physically punish him.[3] For these reasons, he finds her slightly intimidating.[17] Nonetheless, the two may hang out with their teammates even outside of Border.[11] She calls him by his first name with no honorific, presumably signifying closeness, whereas he addresses her very respectfully, appending the honorific -senpai to her surname.[18]

Mako HitomiEdit

Hitomi and Kon are school friends.[19]

Yuu Kunichika and Isami TōmaEdit

Kon has helped Kunichika and Tōma improve their disastrous grades.[6]

AbilitiesEdit

As the Operator of a unit which has managed to climb to the upper tier of B-rank, Kon is presumably a competent multi-tasker. She appears to have made no notable errors in round 3 or round 7 of the current season of rank battles, giving her teammates timely warnings[20] as well as promptly activating and deactivating visual support.[21][22][23] Like her other teammates,[24] she contributes to the strategies of her unit.[25]

Outside of Border, she is known to be a good cook and student.[6] She is also a very skilled calligrapher, having reached the rank of 4th dan of the adult division.[26]

TriviaEdit

  • "Yuka" (結花?) means "joined flowers"; "Kon" (? , usually read "ima") means "now".
  • She enjoys cooking, calligraphy, and matcha tea.[5] Her best dishes are simmered flatfish, mapo eggplant, and fried chicken in nanban sauce.[28]
    • She often cooks for her teammates: in February of the current season of rank battles, some of the most common dishes she made were crab zosui gruel, sukiyaki hotpot, and chicken cutlets with cheese.[29]
  • In her character profile the author referred to her as the "No. 1 Bob Cut" and a Yamato nadeshiko, a Japanese expression signifying the personification of an idealized Japanese woman. He also speculated that she stress-eats Japanese sweets due to Betsuyaku.[6]
    • The description of Kon as a Yamato nadeshiko, which also recurs in her section in the Border Briefing File,[5] is also a pun, since it and Kon's name share a floral theme.
  • She shares her voice actress with Karin Yuitsuka and Izukacha.
