Do we already have more information about Taimi's disease, other than what we learned towards the end of LS1 (right before Lion's Arch fell to Scarlet's forces)?
(The remainder of the post is a reminder to others about how little we seem to know; I'm sure Ms Price already knows this.)
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.
(This is cross-posted in the Lore subforum, because I wasn't sure I'd be around to ask today. I'll update that thread with anything we learn here.)
"Face the facts. Then act on them. It's ...the only doctrine I have to offer you, & it's harder than you'd think, because I swear humans seem hardwired to do anything but. Face the facts. Don't pray, don't wish, ...FACE THE FACTS. THEN act." — Quellcrist Falconer
