Created by DEC's Unix Engineering Group, Ultrix was the first native BSD release for the VAX line of computers.
Ultrix-tan is depicted as a young woman with wavy, shoulder-length brown hair, green eyes and small horns. She wears a typical DEC Military uniform while on duty, but has also been depicted in a slinky, plain black dress. Her weapon is typically depicted as a bladed trident.
Personality-wise, Ultrix-tan displays her mother's tendency toward athletic skill and tendency toward hedonism and grandmother's quick-temper and hard work ethic. She truly wanted to be seen as a part of the DEC Faction (not as a Unix "outsider") and be treated as an equal, however her standoffish nature made the other DEC-tans slow to accept her.
Family and Relationships
In spite of the long-standing and often symbiotic relationship between the Unix-tans and certain members of the DEC Faction - in particular, the alliance PDP-11, VAX-tan and the various Unices, and UNIX-sama's short inclusion within the DEC Faction - many within the DEC Faction opposed the creation of Ultrix-tan (particularly VMS-tan, who was afraid that Ultrix would displace her as the dominant native DEC OS-tan).
Although Ultrix and VMS-tan were rivals, they managed to maintain a functioning - if not vitriol-soaked - friendship, marked with good-natured verbal barbs and occasional physical fights. They seem to have bonded under a mutual position as 'social outcasts' within the DEC Faction.
History and background
Ultrix-tan was created by the Unix Engineering Group, a division of the DEC Faction located to north of DEC Headquarters. It has been theorized that her creation was spurred on by Unix-tan's short alliance with the DEC Military.
