    Isn’t she metal? Maybe the dogs can throw her in water to rust…

    Unity: “Yeah, but I got better. So, go on and say it! Say it!”

    So yelling “Attention!” at these dogs causes them to attack? Bad choice of command words, if you ask me.

    I thought the guy in the woman looking android body at least would have the super strength.

    Its hard to say what her construction/capabilities are. Is her “skin” plastic or an actual living epidermis? Although science fiction has generally conditioned us to think of robots as having superhuman capabilities, one could argue that having relatively human capabilities would make it easier to blend in. In the case of a remote, like Violet, it would make life easier for the human operator who could break things if he became careless.

    I suppose it makes more sense if you focus on the word “mad” in the term “mad scientist.”

    “Unity has finished digesting all da brains she ate.”

    Or, still being super smart, she knows that getting deep ear tongued from a dog is Violet’s greatest wish…

    I would expect a very tough laminal sheath of semi-organic material self sealing and looks and feels like skin. But much tougher.
