*Tamos wrings its hands, combing through its limited databanks for information on the two strangers. It draws a blank, so instead fumbles for the appropriate greeting.* H-hello. Can I help… I-is there something y-you need?
Jaquie observes the geth with a raised eyebrow; intrigued, she’s never seen a geth such as this one before. It’s behaviour gives it an air of…nervousness, but…
“Geth can’t be nervous, can they?” she asks with a head tilt, eyes narrowing in curiosity. She disregards his own question, her interest taking over formalities
Tamos glanced down at its wringing hands, suddenly self-conscious, then quickly forced itself to stop wringing them and instead clasped them behind its back.
“Evidently, w-w-we can.” If it had about double the processes, it could take a moment—a fraction of a second, that is—to analyze exactly what was creating its nervousness: a simplified collection of judgments on social cues and appropriate reactions, processed and implemented with minimal conscious thought to preserve processing power for higher thinking, in short. But then, if it had double the processes, it wouldn’t need this subconscious simplification that made the difference between logical analyses and emotion in the first place, thus wouldn’t be nervous. So under the circumstances, it had to settle for being unable to formulate an explanation on the spot. “I-I am sorry if it… bothers you,” was the next best thing it could think to say. “A-as a combat unit, I… I have fairly p-poor social skills. Th-this stutter d-does not help.”
