Suzy is one of a class of parthenogenic individuals constructed to be secondary wives in polygynous societies. Under proper hormonal conditions, such individuals will give birth to clone children. They are also well suited as host mothers. The vast majority of their DNA is human, but they are classed in most societies as Constructs. Suzy and all her “sisters” are clones and all look the same, like small Han Chinese woman (with a few Japanese features) and appear young for an extended period of their lives. While the first such individual was an expensive tour-de-force to create, their reproductive capabilities imply that they shortly were commonplace. They tend to have a psi ability that they were breed/taught to calm/sooth people.
Suzy was born on Warren and raised in a “finishing school” that produced inexpensive secondary wives for Tai-Ping Mormons. She was married off as a second wife to a man, but was not well treated by either him or his primary wife. She escaped to off-planet, first surviving by begging and telling sob stories (mostly true), using her significant charm. The then worked her way up slightly with a series of menial jobs. She now works as a for Delivery Services, working in at the front desk, minor vehicle maintenance, and courier jobs. While now 22, she looks like a teenager. Current lifestyle is Middle Class.
