Taimi's reunion (in the middle of LS4.2) with her college colleague has sparked some speculation about whether she might be interested in the technology that made Blish how he is today, as a way to help her deal with her "degenerative disease." That made me wonder what we really know about Taimi's condition (and whether she really needs the tech for herself or whether she has some Scruffy 4.0 project in mind).
The only thing I could find on the wiki was from Season 1:
Player Character: Are you injured? What happened to your legs?
Taimi: I was born this way. My legs were never strong enough to carry me very far. Don't pity me, though. I hate pity. And I don't need it because I do just fine for myself.
PC: I can see that. Can your legs be cured?
T: That remains to be seen. The degenerative effects of my condition may spread to other parts of my body as I get older, but for now it's just the legs.
PC: How far can you walk?
T: I can get in and out of Scruffy when I need to. For example, I can walk from my bedroom to the water closet. Just don't ask me to be your partner in a dance marathon.
What else do we know with certainty? I'm interested in actual in-game quotes and canonical details from ANet blogs/interviews.
(I realize few of us can resist the urge to speculate; that's fine too. I just ask that you include your source, if you have one. Thanks )
Edit: I've asked the same question of ANet in the Official Forum Chat
(basically: they aren't ready to say anything about what we might already know, to prevent hinting at the future direction of the story)
