At age seventeen, Minerva won the prestigious beauty title of Miss Felinius and went on to win runner-up in the Miss Cosmos contest, losing the title to Miss Rigel. Believing the contest to be rigged by the then cosmos-controlling forces of the Rigel Empire, Minerva joined the Rebellion and fought as a member of the Meowing Commandos. Although she never managed to prove that the Miss Cosmos competition was fixed, she did help the Rebellion win the war and went on to serve with the CH-13 afterwards. Today, she is married to her fellow Commando, Horace and the two have retired from active military duty to run a chain of pizza and donut restaurants. The couple has one daughter, Charlie, who currently serves aboard the CH-7.
