Thing 1, or Hylikeasus (Hi-li-ki-ose-oos), for short, is the older of the two female Aslan engineers on board. In fact, she is Thing 2’s sister. Though both grew up in the Imperium with very little Aslan cultural background, they were still bound by many of their ancestors traditions. They somehow found themselves on the fringes of society, working together in scrap yards and repair shops, yearning for freedom and safety. Though Thing 1 is considered a above average mechanic and engineer, she is out shined by her sister who is a mechanical genius. Both have a penchant for getting lost in their work, and also for playing practical jokes on the rest of the crew.
