For a good part of Aisha’s life, she has had issues with her optic nerve, which caused spasms and blackout episodes. Just in the current year alone, she had three. But, to her knowledge, these spasms were something which were unfortunate genetics.
However, upon accidentally cutting herself, she discovers the reason her eye may have issues, is because she is an advanced robot. One that, by the end of the first few episodes, learns she has been repeatedly erased.
