Patty they stayed out of a sense of duty, what was supposed to be a rescue mission turned into a taking the place of someone else. It took her memory and most of her abilities, they are not used to that. They were very afraid of people for a long time, and they nearly ran away from Chase.
She is about 4' 11" dark brown hair, Hazel eyes. They are a bit on the bony side, and have a few scars here and there. Most easily seen is one above their right eye. They are kinda built like a kid as well, her hair is about shoulder length.
Living quarters is a room in the basement, I think about a 18' x 20' . There is a simple bed, that is between two bookcases. On the other side of the door is a cork board, that has various things pinned to it. The bookcases are filled with various , books, and other assorted things of interest. In one corner is a small file cabinet, that is filled with the contents of a mysterious package, that was sent from an old lab they were once housed in. There is also a small wardrobe as well. They are currently housed next to the laundry facilities.
i'm at a conference and just tweeted "there's an elsevier rep in the room. KILL HIM! KILL HIM! HE DOES THE WORK OF SATAN" and couldn't quite place what i was referencing... then i realized it was glados saying "BIRD! BIRD! KILL IT! IT'S EVIL"))
