Abandoned after the death of the commissioning builder, the Yamato Shrine aboard the UES Magellan laid dormant for many a year until the 145th Tiger's arrived upon the colony ship and were allowed to make the grounds their home.

The Shrine grounds are divided into a common area for residents, a dojo, the Shrine itself and it's accompanying gardens, including a koi pond.
Noteworthy is the fact that the Shrine grounds are wired for all the modern amenities one would expect to see aboard a vessel of the Magellan's caliber, as well as direct access to a hanger facility that will house the 145th Tigers machines of war.
In her off time, Suki Ishida will occupy the role of 'Miko', or Shrine Maiden 巫女, and will do her best to allow the residents of the Magellan that wish to do so, worship at the shrine, opening the common areas to the public.
- Historical Note:
Yamato 大和, is an ancient Japanese name, which to some, semantically speaking, represents Japan itself. Suki, an avid student of Japanese history, (taught to her by her sensai retainer) recognizes this and will do her utmost to maintain the Shrine as it was originally intended, as a representation of Japan and it's culture, for all to experience.
