Jeffrey Matulef writes, "Now she's, for lack of a better word, a "hot Asian chick." Her beauty makes her feel out of place in the universe. While her origins are unclear, we never get a sense of who she is/was/would be outside of Aperture's facility, but making her attractive gives off the impression that she probably lead a normal life or at the very least is fit for society. I always speculated that she was either born into this life of being a lab rat or was perhaps a destitute woman down on her luck who took the position as a last resort. Looking like an Asian Angelina Jolie feels incongruous to that."
