Re: Gunnerkrigg Court 3: Mystery Solved!
Shes certainly just wandering, but the fact that she wanders at all indicates some sort of connection.

If she had no emotions at all, she would have no motivation to do anything at all. Nothing could offer reward or punishment for her.
She is emotionless enough to simply accept it when she is driven from the village where she has been living. But something motivated her to join that village in the first place, and something motivated her to leave when they drove her out. She could have just sat there, ignoring any weapon that was used against her.
If she was really just going through the world, taking requests as "Why Not", then what happens if Coyote says "Hey, go punch holes in the walls of all the buildings in the court" and she says "Sure, why not".
