it was a few minutes in when a woman was wheeled into his workshop by his father. ilya was definitely confused, and a bit angry that someone barged in on his alone time. it wasn’t until the situation was explained by jonah, saying that the woman is half human half machine that was just recovered and needed to be checked up on quick.
with ease, he opened up her chest(it isn’t as gruesome as it sounds, i swear) and started to examine the wires and the mechanisms working in it. to say he wasn’t impressed would be a lie, the woman was carrying state of the art machinery inside her chest and he wouldn’t admit, but he’s jealous.
a few hours and the woman still hasn’t budged. maybe she is just a machine, corey thought as he continued on with patching up damaged parts in her.
