“War is inevitable if good men cannot step in and resolve it with peace.”
- Her Imperial Majesty, Queen-Empress Umiko Kitiara Hirohito

Umiko Kitiara Hirohito was Crown-Princess of Aseania for three years until her royal coronation as Queen-Empress of The Deep Sea Pacific Empire of Darysopelagia. She is the daughter of Hitoshi Hirohito, Archduke of Aseania and Umiko Natsuko, Archduchess of Aseania, elder sister of Ryoma Hitoshi, and grandniece of former King-Emperor Itsuo.

Born in the Duchy of Aseania, a flourishing dukedom in East Daryusia ruled by her influential parents, Umiko grew up in a very political family; dominated by traditionalism and conservative politics, she began to lean towards modern liberal politics and ideas later in her early teens. While her parents, the Archduke and Archduchess, noticed their daughter’s more liberal personality in contrast to their conservative background, they simply did not infringe their beliefs onto her.

After the passing of her great uncle, the late King-Emperor Itsuo, in 1937, she assumed the throne. The first year of her reign saw the rise of radicalism spike; groups of overly nationalistic and Daryusian supremacists became largely influenced by Japanese-styled militarism and imperialism combined with Fascist elements and Anti-socialist sentiments. Then, the Second Daryusian Civil War broke out when the Daryusian Settlement Defense Front, a terroristic and radical Fascist faction, rose in rebellion against their government, forcing Umiko and her loyalists to fight them in a short-lived but bloody civil war; to determine the fate of their nation’s future.

In the end, her faction won at the cost of hundred thousand Daryusians and the near destruction of her nation’s infrastructures. Presently, she focused on rebuilding her nation and repairing the grievous destruction the war had inflicted physically and mentally on her people. At the same time, she travelled to North America to visit the nations of Canada, the United States and Mexico to establish Daryusian embassies and several trading ports along their west coasts; confident in their promise of obtaining relief from these three nations to provide her unemployed population.

Early 1939 became a defining moment for her and her reign in general; civil war and recovery; emergence from isolation; close relations with the modern world for the first time in a hundred years and the re-evaluation and reformation of her nation from a mysterious hermit kingdom beneath the Hadal zone to yet another great power just emerging below the surface of the Pacific Ocean.

Umiko was born on December 7, 1914 to Archduke and Archduchess Hitoshi Hirohito and Umiko Natsuko in Aseania, a region east of the national capital of Lambrey, in the House of Hitoshi. She was considered a scion, like her younger brother, of the House of Hitoshi, rulers of Aseania, then the most powerful of the Daryusian regions in the Deep Sea Pacific Empire.

Umiko is described as being timid, introvert and paranoid even before she ascended to the throne after her grand uncle had been assassinated. Her reasonings behind her withdrawn character is that she believes her fate will be the same as her grand uncle’s; and because of the politics of her time growing extremely complicated and confrontational, she said that she "does not see herself any part in national politics and warfare".

Her anxieties would worsen when the nation had fallen into civil war, fighting against the Liberation Regiment and when the Empire of Japan had launched a fierce campaign of domination across Asia in the 1930s up to 1937. Her experienced military generals and officers, having been pressuring Umiko to launch a campaign against Japan, began to lose hope in her ability to counteract the Japanese forces.

Realizing this would affect the existence of her nation’s status as one of the great powers, Umiko gathered herself together and overcame her anxieties in order to effectively lead her country out of civil war.

Umiko’s family consist of: her parents, her younger brother, and her grand uncle who was former King-Emperor of Darysopelagia.
