|Personal History||The automaton was built and sold to a wealthy client to assassinate his enemies.Her body was and is mechanical but she is animated by the spiritual essences of many different deceased people allowing her to do things like dream and causing confusing memories of other lives. Mei preformed many missions,slowly gaining sentience and learning to fear her cruel owner,she did not think much of those she killed after all they were just cruel and haughty organics just as bad as him.She's go into their homes and pretend to be a dancer,a servant,anything and then one day she got caught in the act and her owner said she was rogue and knowing she'd just be dismantled,ran away.
After getting to the slums she remembered her body no longer being able to run and waking up in a strange bed in a small home.The man living there explained he knew what was going on and asked for her story which she gave and soon enough the man,Shou,became a father figure to her.It turned out that Shou was in trouble too for stealing from a rich man to feed his late daughter and he had to run away before doing so he gave her a puzzle box that would show her where he was going next so she could send him letters and told her how to get out of the city.Disguised as a young man to avoid arrest,she joined the crew and the rest is history.
Owner:She hopes he's dead
Shou:Seemed well last letter she received
