Engineering and Robotics. AKA Numenara whisperer.
That’s me! I’m kind of short and slender, with lightish brown-pink skin, fairly generic features (which I actually inherited from my parents, if you can believe it) and long, kind of mousey brown hair. Kind of physically awkward, I guess, and not super fit, but you should see me in technobabble fighting games. Not that those exist any more. I wonder if Anrei could somehow dig one up if we get our interfaces working again? But I digress.
I’m really really good at some things, like building machines, programming, neo-post-modern dance, and combining flavours using complicated theoretically science things. I’m pretty bad at some things, like dealing with people who are upset, acting in the ways people expect me to, and this thing you call “cooking” that is apparently the only remaining option for food preparation at this point? Ugh.
I said that I was short, but I guess by comparison to the people here I’m kind of a giant. Why are you all so tiny? Requires further study. Also, maybe you’d all be stronger / get less tired all the time if you ate regular amounts of food? It’s worth a shot, right?
But this was supposed to be about me. What else?
I’m going to be honest here: I’m really scared a lot of the time. I’ve never faced real danger before – I was always the one who hated reading old books because people experienced things like hunger and death and they got me too upset. Being in this world … it’s like something out of a nightmare. I don’t know what I would do if I had to face this on my own.
But you protect me. You keep me safe and keep the bad things away from me, more or less. And this world is incredible. I run into new puzzles constantly, the kind that could barely exist in my world. There’s so much to do, so much to discover. I’m doing my best to understand it all, and once in a while I get distracted enough by it to forget that I’m afraid for a little while.
