Both reside in a makeshift rooftop shelter that overlooks the dark corporate controlled megalopolis.
Living in the urban jungle, as a kid, Tina has had to learn to live alone, scavenge dumpsters for scraps and survive. No matter what, her robot guardian has been programmed to protect her and is always by her side.
