Shlitzee was once Bud and Bailey's companion before they were frozen a long time ago. She also knew the original Percy before he was cloned. Shlitzee's assigned post, dropship b3k-22, was destroyed. She happened upon the Pandora and "adopted" it. Pharmaceuticals have altered her artificial intelligence. She has self-installed a laser rifle. Shlitzee will be reported by fully operational AIs as a rogue robot. Pandora has been trying to report her, but hasn't connected to another AI in hundreds of years. Pandora tried to use its engineering robot, Hephaestus, to apprehend Shlitzee, but she used her laser to cripple Hephaestus's leg. Without any way to repair Hephaestus, Pandora recalled Hephaestus and kept it in storage. Pandora can do nothing about Shlitzee's access because she has a security level passcard.
Shlitzee is of a molded-modular design and wears an earth-tone kaftan with many pockets and pouches (full of various components and tools). She has a garrish blue-red, synthetic mohawk bonded to her head (a cruel prank that has "grown" on it.)
