This article contains spoilers about part of Gravity Rush.
Gravity Rush Edit
She first appears obscured by a cape, alongside her commander Yuri Gerneaux. They bothwitness the fight between Kat and Alias. She briefly appears again in her cape attire when Yuri thanks Kat for defending Endestria. Yuri, seeing a chance to increase the army's ranks, praises Kat's skills and offers her a chance to join the Special Defense Force, but Yunica balks at the suggestion.
One year later, as Kat is being pursued by Nushi up from Boutoume, the Special Defense Force appears, with a caped Yunica on the bow of the battleship Jellyfish. Removing her cape, she quickly dispatches Nushi by crushing the giant Nevi's orb. Alongside Yuri on the bridge of the Jellyfish, they inform Kat of what's happened in her year absence. Yunica accuses Kat of being a troublemaker, noting this is the second time she has brought Nevi into Heksevile and suggesting she should leave.
When D'nelica's new weapon against the Nevi, the Sea Anemone, is revealed, Yunica appears and begins a battle with Kat. Yunica states that Kat is under arrest under Provision 113 of the Anti-Nevi Act and is no longer required. Their battle takes to the sky of Vendecentre, where Kat forces Yunica to increase the output of her weapons by 121%, breaching safety regulations. After Kat unleashes a finisher on the soldier, she crash lands on a walkway, but when Kat approaches, Yunica activates a suction device that separates Dusty from Kat, sapping Kat of her powers. Kat is captured and frozen, and Yunica proclaims that her mission has been accomplished.
Syd, who has been observing from a distance, shoots the engines of the machine carrying Kat. Yunica whirls on Syd, aiming her lance at him and proclaiming he has just committed treason. Just as this happens, however, the Sea Anemone begins to go beserk, malfunctioning and attacking the Special Defense Force ships and Vendecentre. In the carnage, it destroys the Jellyfish. Shocked, Yunica engages the Sea Anemone in combat and is nearly killed, until the newly freed Kat comes to her rescue. Yunica proclaims defiantly that it is her duty to destroy the Sea Anemone, as the Jellyfish's destruction means she is now at the top of the chain of command, but Kat tells her that she's in no condition to fight. After Kat makes several futile attempts to damage the Sea Anemone, Yunica transforms her lance into a cannon. She fires a blast at the Sea Anemone and exposes the Nevi core, but she collapses due to her injuries.
Repairing herself after a few minutes, she re-engages the Sea Anemone with Kat and the reappeared Raven. After a fierce battle, Yunica pins the Sea Anemone to the Clock Tower with her lance, holding it in place as Kat unleashes one last finisher and destroys the Nevi abomination once and for all.
During the credits sequence, she is seen with an injured Yuri overlooking the skyline of Vendecentre. As she advises Yuri to return to bed for rest, he laments that this is the calm before the storm.
Gravity Rush 2 Edit
During Gravity Rush 2, Yunica is a member of the Rebels led by D'nelica who are attempting to overthrow Dr. Brahman. She first appears when Kat attacks a Rebel spy at the bidding of Dr. Brahman, and battles Kat alongside Permet as the Rebels Delta-1 and Delta-2. When she is defeated, she reveals herself and tries to tell Kat that she is on the wrong side.
Later on, she assists Kat in defeating the Angels. However, she attempts to kill Durga Angel, in a strictly tactical move that does not take into account that Cecie is Kat's friend, and Kat tries to stop her, which results in Yunica and Permet being incapacitated. Kat realizes she has underestimated the Angels' power, but is saved in the nick of time by Lisa, who was pulled through a dimensional rift by Alias.
Yunica later assists in the defense of Hekseville against Elektricitie, initially helping Raven take down her electric shield after Permet is incapacitated, but is wiped out herself by a bolt of lightning, her robotic legs completely blown off her body. Nevertheless, she survives this attack and is later seen continuing to train even after the Nevi threat is eliminated, in case a new threat emerges.
- Both of her feet, as well as possibly her right arm, are prosthetic limbs. She may have even more cyborg modifications inside of her, as evidenced by her ability to perform a "repair protocol".
- According to the Gravity Rush 2 Complete Guide, Yunica is 17 years old.
