Though regulations forbid them from expressing emotions, each model has its own distinguishing personality, and 2B is comparatively cool, calm, and collected.
Official name: YoRHa No. 9 Type S
A soul…and an ephemeral kindness.
Though he has the ability to attack, this YoRHa android specializes in research missions and excels in collecting information, mainly by hacking.
Within YoRHa, 9S is comparatively varied in his emotional expressions and has a kind personality.
Official name: YoRHa Type A No. 2
A vortex…of the past and hatred.
The Type A is a YoRHa prototype model that is no longer in use. She specializes in close-range attacks.
She was operated on a trial basis in the process of developing official models such as 2B and 9S.
Personality-wise, she has little to say and always acts independently.
