Tessa Alexanian is a robot whisperer by trade, a previous bay area pun-off champion, a mediocre shadow puppeteer, a former tall ship rigging officer, and chronically overenthused. She swore an oath upon honor and cold iron before departing Waterloo, Ontario to become an engineer at Zymergen, where she attempts to persuade robots to do biology experiments.
