It all began in the early 80's. Humanity had been tangled in it's own problems
when out of nowhere the Earth was invaded by a mysterious alien race. While no
one knew exactly what they wanted, one thing was certain: they were bent on
destroying humanity. Though all of this a secret organization called Vesper
was formed. Their sole purpose was to repel the seemingly unstoppable alien
organization Saint. For the most part they were unsuccessful until the
creation of the Type V-1046 R android, which is more commonly referred to as Mahoro.
Mahoro was created with artificial intelligence making her nearly human, aside
from the super human abilities bestowed by her artificial body. Her purpose was
to stop the invasion, and it was Mahoro that single handedly turned the tide and
fought back to the point of a stalemate.
Time passed by with many battles between Saint and Vesper. Neither
gaining an upper hand, and thanks to a well orchestrated cover up - civilians
were none the wiser that that aliens even existed. While Mahoro was created for
battle, it was her cheerful charming personality that endeared her to the people
at Vesper, although thinking like a human also has its concequences. During one
battle Mahoro came face to face with her "human personality" conflicting with her
android intellect, when she was forced to choose between destroying a missile
instilation (and indirectly killing Commander Misato), or save him and let
millions to die at the missiles launched by Saint. Mahoro took the logical choice,
but would have to bear the burden of her conscience for the rest of her life.
Years would pass after the incident, with Mahoro at the front fighting against
Saint. Eventually Mahoro was informed that she was nearing the end of her
operational life, and that she had a limited time before she would shut down.
However if Mahoro would retire from combat, that her operational life would extend
by a couple hundred days. With her distinguished service, Mahoro was encouraged
to go into retirement. But Mahoro had always lived a life of service; and it was
all she really knew, so to her a retirement of inactivity was out of the question.
So Mahoro was transferred into the housekeeping division of Vesper and given a job
as a maid.
Around the same time that a young 14 year old boy was looking for a maid to clean
house. It would certainly be nice to have a nice old lady to help clean his house,
and maybe keep him company since he lived alone. Of course when an extremely cute
young girl named Mahoro showed up, Suguru was a bit unsure. Especially with the
entire "I'm an android that used to fight aliens" thing. Yet for some reason
things felt right with Mahoro, and Suguru decided to keep her on board. Of course
things didn't go as smoothly as planned. It looks sort of... suspicious having a
young pair of hormonally charged teenagers living together. Aside from that Mahoro
takes the ideal of being a maid WAAAY to seriously. Still, Suguru couldn't remember
the last time he had been so happy.
But there are secrets that Mahoro still hasn't revealed to Suguru. He still doesn't
know that her life will terminate in about a year. He also doesn't know that his
father used to work for Vesper and it was Mahoro who was responsible for his death.
Can Mahoro; who was the single most important weapon the Earth had fielded against
the aliens, simply retire or will her past catch up to her? These facts lurk
constantly in the back of Mahoro's mind, but to her commander Misato was like a
father, and she owes it to him, and his son to at least TRY to make amends for what
she has done - even if it was the logical thing to do...
