This is one of those pages where I've hinted about something way too strongly, or it's still not obvious what I meant.

Now I'm curious. Mira said that they hadn't been cyborgs long. But their father made it very clear that this was arims first adult body. So how long have they been cyborgs?

Actually, Mira said that -Arim- hadn't been a cyborg long, and Evilyn knew of Mira but didn't even realize there was an Arim.

Mira became a cyborg years before Arim. Not to give anything big away, their original cyborg bodies looked more like their natural thinner bodies (like the real Mira looks in Evilyn's mind). You could say they look more like teen bodies. Sometime before this point thought they upgraded to these more shapely bodies.

I figure it might take a while to adjust to a cyborg body, maybe even years. If Mira was first, Arim might have been behind in skill for a while.

Mira and Arim are 25ish (their Mother, Connor's Doctor, was pregnant with them in the Richard/Connor flashback chapter). Mira probably became a cyborg 7-8 years ago. It probably took 2-3 years for Arim to become one too. Arim has probably only been a cyborg for a few months here.

May have given to much away there cause it sounds more like they became cyborgs by choice instead of repair by an accident. Then that leads to the question why would they do that? Why would they willingly give up their bodies? Especially since arim comments on how mira lost her empathy. (Though to note mira didn't lose it she was just being protective.) On that note she probably needs to talk to her sister because if arim knew she probably wouldn't have gotten wrecked.

Mira is shown, in this page and the previous one, to be thin/sickly, and unable to walk without assistance. She also has strange possibly-metal objects attached to her neck & arm, and what looks like a hospital wristband.

It's possible that "cyborgising" was, in effect, a full-body prosthesis to compensate for a congenital condition — one that, going by her father's cane, may even have been genetic.

If someone with ALS or EDS was told that they could be given the ability to move around independently, without being exhausted or in near-constant pain, and without suffering extensive bruising or dislocated joints from the slightest bump or jolt, then they might jump at the chance to become a cyborg.

True mechamaid might eventually take that stance if there aren't other ways to heal her condition. (Spinnerette Web comic it's pretty fun.)
