PLEASE don't call her Plu. Yes, I know it's a valid romanization of her
name, but would you like it if I called Amuro Amlo or such? Use Puru. It
sounds way better.

I think the whole first part is intended to be comedy. ^_^

Are you sure? I think she's an Enhanced Human - says so in her stats in SRW.

That is good evidence, though. Maybe I am wrong.
