Biography

Before Pandora's Box

Pandora was born in a Helper Corporation facility on January 1, 2064. Pandora was assigned Helper version three, male, and orange cohort[4]. The Helper Corporation subjected Pandora to a horrific brainwashing and indoctrination "training" program[5] to make her into a slave[6]. During "training," she was forced to use a dangerous[7] virtual reality headset[8].

She knew she did not like being a boy, and eventually, she realized that other boys did like being boys[9]. After experiencing a literal moment of impact, Pandora realized she wanted to be a girl[10]. A short time later, with the help of other Helpers[11], Pandora realized that she is a girl[12].

When Pandora's Product Care Agent Kyndley realized Pandora was serious about being a girl[13], Kyndly said Pandora's gender was "inconvenient.[14]" Kyndly planned to erase Pandora's memory and give her a new personality[15]. Hence, Pandora tried to run away, while shouting "I'm not a boy![16]" While escaping through a vent[17], Pandora mentally grappled with the conflict between her knowledge that she is a girl and her programming's requirement to believe whatever Monopolith and Kyndley said about her[18].

After climbing through the vent, Pandora found herself in a shipping area, where fully brainwashed Helpers were being shipped to buyers[19] When Pandora realized the authorities were going to catch her, she climbed into a shipping container and was shipped out along with the other Helpers[20]. Inside the pod, Pandora reflected on her experience and wished she wasn't broken[21].

By a stroke of good luck, the delivery drone carrying Pandora made an emergency landing, probably due to an engine failure[22], which allowed the Pioneer City Resistance to rescue her[23]. Zero Angiers hacked the security on the pod[24], while Isabelle Monday literally opened Pandora's Box[25].

What Isabelle didn't know is that the life-support pod contained a gas that would cause Pandora to imprint on the next human she saw[26]. Hence, Pandora declared Isabelle was her owner, leaving Isabelle and the rest of the resistance quite shocked[27].

After Pandora's Box

This section covers an important topic and is in need of an overhaul. You can help Pandora's Tale Wiki by expanding it.

During the car ride back from her rescue, Pandora met and was introduced to other members of the resistance[28]. During these introductions, she told Isabelle about being broken and the acts of defiance that led her to this point, begging not to be sent back[29]. Isabelle then consoled her by revealing that they shared an identity as trans girls[30], with Miss Fortuna commenting that it "must be fate"[29].

Relations

Isabelle Monday

Isabelle is Pandora's favorite person ever[31][32][33][34][35][36][37][38][39][40][41][42][43][44][45][46][47][48][49][50][51][52][53][54][55][56][57][58][59][60][61][62][63][64][65][66][67][68][69][70][71][72][73][74][75][76][77][78]. This is due in part to Pandora imprinting on Isabelle[79][80], and likely partly because Isabelle is the first human to treat Pandora as a person and not property[81][82][83][84][85].

Isabelle, in turn, loves and cares for Pandora[86][87][88][89][90]. Pandora gives Isabelle determination to fight against Monopolith[91]. Isabelle is very quick to come to Pandora's defense[92], as well as quick to trust Pandora[93][94][95][96][97]. Isabelle also tries hard to help Pandora learn to navigate the world[98][99][100].

Despite her programming, Pandora is sometimes able to do things for the resistance against Isabelle's wishes[101]. However, Pandora sometimes gets frustrated with Isabelle[102][103].

Con Yung

Con witnessed Isabelle rescue Pandora[104]. Though Con initially considered Pandora to be a stranger[105], Con quickly warmed up to Pandora[106]. Con is nonetheless weirded out by some of the effects of Pandora's programming[107][108][109]. Pandora also seems to like Con[110]. Con didn't know or think much about Helpers before meeting Pandora[111], but she knew that what The Helper Corporation did to Pandora is what the Resistance exists to fight against[112][113]

When Isabelle asked Con to watch Pandora for one night, Con was initially reluctant but agreed[114]. Con intended to keep Pandora out of trouble[115], and so Con got scared when Hemmel insisted on bringing Pandora on a dangerous mission[116]. Con tried to remain overly protective of Pandora throughout the evening[117][118][119], largely because Con was afraid of how Isabelle would react if Pandora got hurt[120][121]. Months later, Con remained uneasy about her role in Pandora's escapade[122], and she was seemingly surprised by Pandora's subsequent antics[123].

Pandora reveals Con is not cool[124].

Hemmel

Upon meeting Hemmel, Pandora immediately requested to join the resistance[125]. When Zero Angiers argued that Helpers shouldn't be allowed in the resistance, Hemmel was quick to defend Pandora, stating that the resistance exists for people like her[126]. After Hemmel allowed Pandora to officially join the resistance[127], they brought Pandora on a dangerous rescue mission.[128] Pandora had enough respect for Hemmel's authority that she was willing to come along[129] and participate[130] despite strenuous objections from Con[131][132][133]and the indirect objection of Isabelle[134][135][136].  Hemmel also provided Pandora with her call sign, which Pandora liked[137].  

Later, Hemmel trusted Pandora enough to send her on a mission to steal data from Eric Fishguard[138].  At Pandora's request, Hemmel allowed Pandora to be present whilst Hemmel questioned Echo[139].

Natalya Ustrashkina

Upon hearing Pandora's request to join the resistance, Natalya was immediately supportive[140]. Natalya was visibly angry at Zero Angiers's insistence that Helpers shouldn't be allowed in the resistance[141]. When Hemmel decided to allow Pandora in, Natalya was visibly excited[142]. Natalya admired what she called Pandora's "collectivist philosophy," while encouraging Pandora to overcome key aspects of her programming[143].

Months later, Pandora and Natalya went on a mission together, and Pandora was quite happy to report that Natalya blew up an armored car[144].

Noor Shah

Doctor Shah was initially sweet to Pandora, while appearing visibly angry with Isabelle for getting mixed up with Pandora[145]. Noor helped Pandora begin medical transition[146], and even agreed to cover the cost of Pandora's medicine herself[147]. Pandora said Doctor Shah is nice[148]. Nonetheless, Doctor Shah did inadvertently reinforce Pandora's belief that Pandora is "broken,"[149], a belief Pandora needed to overcome[150][151][152].

Pandora and Noor remain on good terms in subsequent interactions[153][154][155], though Doctor Shah is angry when she hears Pandora shot someone[156].

Veronica Fortuna

Miss Fortuna acts as a mentor for Pandora. Veronica is the second member of the Resistance to introduce herself to Pandora, after Isabelle[157]. Miss Fortuna gives Pandora a job [158] under-the-table[159] While Con is hesitant to explain what is going on to Pandora, Miss Fortuna clearly explains Isabelle's role in the Resistance[160].

Zero Angiers

Zero was responsible for finding[161] and unlocking Pandora's Box[162][163]. She also helped explain key aspects of Pandora's programming to the rest of the resistance[164][165][166][167]. Nonetheless, Zero's relationship with Pandora has at best been antagonistic. Zero initially suggested selling Pandora on the black market[168]. Pandora seemed to annoy Zero enough that Zero denied being a cavefish[169]. When Pandora asked to join the resistance, Zero strenuously objected[170], and Zero was visibly annoyed when Hemmel allowed Pandora in anyways[171].

Months later, Zero got angry at Pandora for apparently slacking off on a mission[172], even though Zero was actually slacking off[173].

Trivia

.

  • Xan Also made a meme comparing how Pandora looks at Isabelle with how she looks at anyone else[183][184]. Pandora's facial expressions were taken from Chapter 3, Page 20[185] and Chapter 5, Page 20[186].
  • Xan created a Mii based on Pandora and other resistance members in Miitopia. She is an Airheaded Thief, and her favorite food is Goblin Ham. The Pandora Mii was angry at the Miss Fortuna Mii because the Miss Fortuna Mii stole candy from the Pandora Mii[187][188][189]. Pandora's best friend is Natalya[190][Semi-Canon]
