From the moment that life sparked into Lilobot's metallic, oiled veins, the entire world suddenly became her oyster. To her, every experience is as fresh as if it were her first time, giving her a unique perspective on the world: one of pure curiousity and amazement.

In fact, Lilobot's curiousity will often get her into trouble. There's no limits to what she'll do for the sake of having a new experience. That socket needs her finger stuck in it! Where does that drain pipe go? She just must walk through that fire! How long can she hang upside down straight for? Go without scrap for? She isn't quite the craziest daredevil, as she's not really an "adreniline" junkie--she just merely wants to make the best of every single minute she has, and since she can calculate to the second just how long that is, she sees absolutely no reason not to bravely face the world and jump headfirst into everything... except for water, that is.

Unfortunately, while she views the world through rose-tinted lenses, the world does not see her the same way. She's a "monstrosity", a "fluke of nature", a piece of walking scrap metal to everyone not fortunate enough to get to know her. In the face of her creation she was treated with utmost apprehension, and since then, she has had to try to puzzle why humanity will not treat her nicely when all she really wants is to be like them.

"Why... Why did they wish to hurt me?" Lil asked, her hands still shielding her cowering face. "Did... Did I do something wrong?"
"No Lil," Alesha choked, her hand resting against the cold, cracked husk of Lil's hair. "You did nothing wrong. They just don't understand, okay? They can't."
"I just wanted to be liked," Lilobot wheezed, her eyes whirring back and forth, as if searching there, on her chest, for the answer. "So I could be normal."

-- Lilobot & Alesha Kane
"Misjudged"

Still, there's hardly a pessimistic piece of wire in Lil's metal frame, so she continues onwards through her life as best as a robot in her position can. Ignoring the negativity human-kind has for her, she works incessentaly to become more like one. Sometimes this has rather amusing--or rather tragic--consequences. One minute she's trying to talk like a gangster "Because that's how they do it in the movies!" while the next she's trying to flirt with a very unresponsive male human. Life just ain't fair for poor ol' Lilobot.


The few that do not fear her or disapprove of her existence find it easy to trust her implicitly with everything. The Kanes quickly adopted her as one of their own--she even sometimes refers to Bradley as her 'father', as he created her--and as she spends a large amount of time caring for the children, they will continue to form a strong bond with her as they grow and age.

When Lil isn't babysitting or happily scrubbing toilets, she can be found having pleasant conversations with the microwave oven, exploring every inch of Twinbrook for a new and rivoting experience, trying to figure out why she isn't allowed to stuff her face full of cookies from the cookie jar, and pursuing her endless quest to gain as much knowledge and understanding as her metallic neural synapses can hold.

Oh man, words cannot describe my love for Lilo. I love seeing the world through her eyes! It's really great to get to know her a bit better.

Kaleeko April 23, 2011 at 1:08 AM  

I'm really glad to hear you do, because I feel the same way! She seriously is soo close to my heart right now. I adore the proverbial socks off of her!

I can see why Lil has taken your heart. An innocent soul who wants to do and see everything.

As Kaleeko know, I am not fond of Sim robots. I had a servo in Sims 2 that was maddening. But I will try to like Lil.

Mind you, when Alesha spent half the day hiding...I really bonded with that! :)

Kaleeko April 24, 2011 at 10:17 PM  

Well, this is one Simbot you don't have to actually play, so I see no reason why you wouldn't like her for being a simbot... She's not cooking tons of meals or ninjaing cuddle time on your kids. XD

Haha, Alesha hiding in the bathroom was hilarious... She's very brave in some ways, and tooootally not in others. Haha!

Or hitting on the adults in the house for romance. That was a rather ugly side effect of Servos.

For all you know, I might be jealous of Brad surrounded by nothing but females now. :)

Kaleeko April 24, 2011 at 10:26 PM  

Hahaha; well, that *definitely* won't happen, since Simbots are treated as family members. She can't even hit on Naomi, and Naomi's just dating Mia. XD She has her listed as "Aunt". Kind of weird, but convenient!

LOL--I just now realized that Brad really is swimming in the estrogen ocean. I don't feel bad for him, though... He's perfectly happy that way! :D

PiB April 24, 2011 at 10:33 PM  

Well, since Brad is her father, of a sort, it should be a lot safer.

The servo was just such a pain, I was already having a hard time getting rid of old lovers with the Sim he was crushing on.

So, when does Margo get a real sibling, not just a metal one?

Kaleeko April 24, 2011 at 10:40 PM  

Well... Soon enough. :) Margo is still just a baby after all!

Oh my gosh this is just the cutest, Lil has her own bio!

'..conversations with the microwave oven..' LOL! That is gold!

Who could not love her, honestly. :)

Kaleeko April 25, 2011 at 11:13 PM  

Yep yep!! How could I not give her a bio, she's just so adorable!!

That and she's going to be a main character in the story for a while yet, so she deserves a place of honor!

I agree: who couldn't love her! :D
