I like that this is establishing Jones as a foil to Coyote.

Jones cannot manipulate her body in any particular way, cannot even pluck a hair from her head. Coyote can split his body parts and give them properties and so on.

Jones cannot feel emotion, or imagine things; Coyote is almost entirely about emotion.

Jones is utterly and completely independent of humanity, despite her similar appearance and demeanour; Coyote claims that he is entirely the result of humanity's imagination and is incredibly alien in both appearance and personality.

The thing I find most interesting, though, is that the Forest has Coyote as the leader, where Jones is solely and entirely in a subservient or advisory role.

Also, I feel sorry for Dr whatshisface. Jones can never love him back. =C
