Julia Chun (20)
The unpredictable, rebellious, but otherwise brilliant and extremely charismatic daughter of Upton Chun (head of GTD). Julia was always more interested in her father’s profession than the professional path her father forced upon her.
During the game, Julia spends her last weeks on Earth – soon she’ll have to travel to the colonies, to start studying for her political career on a well‐known and pretty expensive university. Julia rebels against this with all of her being, but because of her strict upbringing, she would never directly go against the will of her father.
The main cause of her restlessness is that, even though she is young, she has already seen too much. Sometimes she appears to be much older than her age – not in her appearance of course, but in the way she behaves. During her 20 years – a time she spent travelling with Upton from military outpost to military outpost – she witnessed an incredible amount of chaos, destruction and pain. She is very much aware what kind of atrocities the population of Earth has to suffer through on this dying planet. And this is exactly the reason why she is such a fan of the people left behind – she knows the horror that is their everyday lives, and she knows the difficulties they face all the time. She is also aware that despite all this, humans are capable of maintaining their dignity even in the harshest conditions, and they are capable of love, solidarity and even happiness. ￼
Upton is right in one thing: Julia will be an excellent politician – because manipulation is in her blood. She plays with her father’s underlings like a cat plays with mice, and through this manipulation she always achieves whatever she wants – mainly to go whatever mission the GTD forces are about to embark on. His father is scared shitless on occasions his daughter worms her way onto a mission – if he’d suspect how many times she risked her life in the past without him ever knowing about it, he’d have a heart attack! She is the treasure of the old soldier’s life, of course: being an only child, he wants to protect her from the horrors of the world, and despite the constant fighting between father and daughter, he always forgives her, whatever she does. Surprisingly, that hasn’t made Julia spoiled. Just wise, and cunning.
Julia is a tough cookie – and it’s obvious that she will never stop helping the less fortunate. After saving the main protagonist’s life, she becomes his romantic interest. The boy falls head over heels in love with her, not suspecting that to conquer Julia, so to speak, it’s not enough to steal her heart, he’ll also have to adapt to a certain worldview, a certain ideology.
