How much of Black Dahlia is synthetic?

Love her design and it’s great to have her in the game now (even if I haven’t gotten a diamond roll yet 🥲). I understand her backstory says she’s “at least partially” cybernetic. It’s clear her legs are prosthetic and obviously her gun arm. Is she like Darth Vader where it’s just her limbs that are robotic, or has she had alterations done to her torso and/or head? I assume she still has a human brain, at least, given how she expresses joy in the pain of others.

I also wonder if she has had additional upgrades applied since her initial transformation into the first anti Skullgirl unit. Hard to see her keeping up with Peacock otherwise.

The in-game more info button reveals her weight: 350 lbs (100 lbs organic) -- or in metric, 159 kg (45 kg organic)

I'd say most of that inorganic 250 lbs is that heavy metal gun arm! Her 2nd Encore full release may bring character sheet diagrams and her story mode give more clues, but until then, I guess only her left arm, body (neck to mid-thigh), and head are "real."

I also wonder if she has had additional upgrades applied since her initial transformation into the first anti Skullgirl unit. Hard to see her keeping up with Peacock otherwise.
Maybe Tom, the tiny Dagonian engineer that pilots Ottomo, has been maintaining Dahlia's tech?

But she doesn't like him. Feel like she'd have issues letting him get that personal with her.

Also, only 5'8"?! Shockingly short. I would have expected her to be on the tall side.

I'm a big fan of how she laughs and smiles even when defeated. Nice touch.

Before Robo-Fortune became canon, I'd say Brain Drain was the most technologically-advanced entity in Canopy Kingdom. He's a brain and a few organs in a robot shell. All the other cyborgs are more "intact." But now Robo-Fortune was acknowledged in Annie's 2nd Encore story mode, it means completely synthetic being are possible. Black Dahlia could be a robot that only pretends to drink "apple juice"
But she doesn't like him.
True! That's one of the funniest parts of her likes/dislikes. She likes Ottomo, but dislikes Tom. That's like loving Iron Man but hating Tony Stark. I guess a tall and goofy dancing robot suit with gun fingers really makes the difference.

Well, that's possible if one doesn't KNOW that 'Tony Stark' is 'Iron Man'...

Dahlia likes Uncut Gems by Adam Sandler? She's got good taste in movies (and actors) I see

i heard she was pretty old too, like in her 60's but she looks relatively young. also i heard somewhere that she used to use a bit of the life gem before ms.fortune ate it to look young...

Her figure and mobility certainly don’t show her age, but she still has major grandma energy with her stun animation. Also her hair appears grey which could also be an indicator of her age.
