Personality and Preferences
- "My brain came with the deep structures for math and systems, but I didn't follow it into engineering. Business administration, law, governance, and things like that are more interesting. I love seeing how policy and legal systems come together."
- "If I got a mundane job, I think I'd probably go into local politics, no higher than the state level anyway. Join a representative's staff in Congress, City Council, state auditor, something like that."
- "I like watching soccer. Other sports? Not so much. I don't know if you count billiards or snooker, but I like playing games like that. Otto and I both have better spatial processing than most people."
- "I don't play the shooters the boys like, or Otto's racing games, but I like rhythm and puzzle games. I like some platformers, but any kind of twitch gaming annoys me."
- "I like classical music, but more the violin pieces like Beethoven's Violin Sonata #9. I love Vivaldi's Four Seasons. I don't really like the heavier, bombastic classics."
- "If you want modern mainstream music, I like more pop, and Otto likes more classic rock. For other genres, I like psy-trance and chillout music."
- "I like eating. Love it in fact. I just don't have to. So eating is like.. a special occasion for me. Like going to the movies, or going out with friends. I'm also a terrible cook, because I season everything for how it'll taste but not how it'll digest, because nothing ever bothers me."
- "Even though I don't need calories, I still have cravings for food. I go through Pop Rocks and jelly beans when I just feel the need to eat something, you know?"
- "I think I like Indian food the most, followed by Tex-Mex. I like making huge casserole dishes with lots of garnish. Usually we get soup or stew out of a crock pot, since the ingredients are cheap and prep is easy."
- "I like Android phones, but not Samsung's. The screen capacitance doesn't work well with my fingers. Leo says he's working on it, but I'd rather just get a Pixel."
- "I never had an iPhone because we're on a family plan and got a second phone free type of deal."
Pneuma's intelligence has been incarnated into three different shells so far. Aside from the original body, she was trapped in a Rossum robot body, then transferred to a holographic existence by Jason Quill; that instance has taken on the name Numina.
The original Pneuma was recovered from Rook Industries.
She is engaged to Link and managing the business aspects of his technology efforts.
