See post #3033369.
She is portrayed with long pink hair, pointy ears, and blue eyes. Her outfit consists of a two-tone cape with an aiguillette, epaulettes, and a popped collar, a double-breasted red jacket that is open at her cleavage, a black skirt, pantyhose, and strappy heels.
Her rig consists of her historical 356 mm quad gun mounts emblazoned with the real life ship's badge on the turret roofs, and two 133 mm twin DP mounts to her right. She also wields a gold-hilted sword with a black blade.
In the Azur Lane universe, Duke of York is a vampire with a gothic aesthetic, as well as speaking, and behaving with an old english theme, using words such as ‘thee’ ‘thou’, etc. While not as intense as Akagi or Roon, she still wishes to make the Commander hers, with most of her lines stating how handsome and admirable they are, even as so far as giving them nicknames such as Adonis, Skylark, Sparrow, Nightingale, etc.
In real life, Duke of York was named after the reigning monarch of her time, King George VI (in his pre-coronation role as the Duke of York).
She started construction in May 1937, and was finished and commissioned on November 14, 1941. She is most notable for the participation in the Battle of the North Cape in December 1943 where she sank Scharnhorst in the midst of the Arctic winter using radar-assisted blind fire aided by the actions of her escorting cruisers and destroyers.
