Olivia is a Nandroid formerly owned by the late Andrew and Janet Craw to assist in maintaining their home and the care of their children, Laurel, Andy, and Tommy. Andrew and Janet custom ordered Olivia with purple eyes and a vanity name, and she is the oldest Nandroid still under Sterling warranty anywhere in the country, having served the Craw family for eighteen years.

After the death of her owners and extraordinary legal persuasion by surviving relative and lawyer Carter Craw, Olivia became both the legal guardian of her masters' children and the custodian of the estate until the eldest becomes of age. She is in possession of a Three Nines Fine warranty ticket, granting her perpetual maintenance and repair support from Sterling despite being long past her original End of Life date.

She is currently unable to perform her usual household duties due to damage sustained to her left and right arms, which are now slightly bent up and down, respectively. Chronic and uncontrollable shaking in both and in her hands precludes her from reliably holding or manipulating cleaning tools and other items. Her advanced age and low production count has hampered Sterling's attempts to find replacement parts.

Character summary[edit | edit source]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Olivia is a quiet and reserved Nandroid, usually keeping to herself unless summoned and perfectly happy and content in her role as the Craw family's maid. She often helps the children of the family with their own activities, and enjoyed listening to Janet perform with her piano, sometimes even tapping out her favorite tunes on nearby surfaces on her own time. While possessing the training to do so, she refuses to play on Janet's piano and will not touch it outside of dusting. She dislikes rock and roll and other similar types of music.

Because of her responsibility in protecting Andrew's vast antique collection, Olivia is a stickler for dust and finds dusting one of her most enjoyable household duties. Her extended interactions with Andrew's collection have left her with a fairly robust knowledge in certain categories of antiques.

Relationships[edit | edit source]

Olivia maintains a working relationship with two of Sterling's local repair center staff, facility director George Kursk and senior repair engineer Dr. John Penwell. George is her liaison of sorts for warranty and repair support, and Dr. Penwell is her dedicated service engineer.

Although instrumental in putting Olivia in her current position, Olivia dislikes her master's brother Carter Craw. Between Carter's abusive personality and Olivia's crippling injuries, the two have a strained long-distance partnership in keeping the estate out of Melanie Craw's hands.

In the past, Olivia had a Nandroid twin named Natalia who worked for Andrew's brother Carter, with whom she graduated in the same class from Nandroid School. Natalia's radically different and mean-spirited personality meant the two rarely saw eye to eye, but they could occasionally get along under the right circumstances. With the stress of her current position, Olivia sometimes misses Natalia's unshakable confidence in all situations.

Olivia strongly dislikes Oliver, Carter's botler replacement for Natalia, and actively avoids interacting with him as much as possible. Carter's move to the West Coast made this easy, until recent events putting her in regular contact with Carter increased her risk of talking to Oliver.

The Craw children are Olivia's pride and joy, the surviving descendants of her deceased masters and her raison d'etre to continue operating. She'll often assist them in practicing their various hobbies or with other activities, comforts them while they grieve, and lately has been teaching them how to perform household chores themselves in her stead while she awaits Sterling's repairs.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Early Life[edit | edit source]

Like all known Nandroids, Olivia trained at and graduated from Nandroid School, alongside her sister Natalia. Her original long ponytail was docked after a tangling incident with a fan, an accidental door closing required replacing some of her fingers, and one optic was replaced after being struck and destroyed by a falling baseball.

Behind the Scenes[edit | edit source]

OliviAnon wrote the original revision of Three Nines Fine Part 1 after seeing a screenshot of a story prompt posted on /co/. Due to OliviAnon's initial lack of familiarity with the source material, Olivia's purple eyes and name ending in -ia instead of -y/ie were attributed to her being an older model than Emmy. Upon discovering Emmy the Robot and that Emmy is likely a first-generation Nandroid, these details were altered so that she was newer than Emmy, but could still retain the purple eyes and -ia name to avoid retconning the character design. This was because OliviAnon believed it was more interesting to write around the existing details than to retcon.

While writing Part 2, OliviAnon considered scrapping Olivia's design altogether and using background nandroid Wendy's instead, to better fit canon.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

In the context of her story, Olivia is a Nandroid Model 02, putting her in the next class to graduate after Emmy's.

The Three Nines Fine ticket is based on the warranty tickets from Stress Test Anon, differing in that it does not expire and they are not surrendered to Sterling upon redemption.

In Three Nines Fine, Nandroids have a ten year warranty, after which they can either continue to receive maintenance under a prohibitively expensive extended monthly warranty, or be traded in for a newer model. Owners may also choose to forgo the support model entirely, but considering a Nandroid's cost this is usually avoided.

The Craw court ruling is briefly mentioned in Nandroids in Space while Tilly is watching television [1]. This scene was later tied into Three Nines Fine Part 6 with expanded dialogue from the newscaster [2].

Dr. Marduk is briefly mentioned near the end of Chapter 15 of Nandroids in Space. [3]
