Plural: Elijah bots
This is an old Elijah bot, a second-generation computer therapist tool. Significantly more advanced than the original Eliza system, it still had a tendency to assume everything you wanted to talk about involved your family hating you.
The humanoid shape was supposed to make conversations feel more natural, but unfortunately technology put Elijah right in the middle of the uncanny valley, so it just made things worse. This particular bot is fully functional, and is certainly uncannily uncanny.

Gives your sidekick understudy a new skill.
|robotics kit||scrapped Elijah bot|
Your understudy spends some time playing with the Elijah bot, working out the patterns and cadences of a good therapy session. It's not surprising that an actor is also a quick study of the material, and it doesn't take long before <sidekick>'s intuition puts the necessary dynamism into what failed as a flat and predictable computer system.Your sidekick learns a role: Psychoanalyst.
Despite the fact a good therapist will encourage you to rehash the same material over again for years, ironically your sidekick doesn't seem particularly interested in repeating the training process a second time. I wonder why that is?
During the Cat and Mick-y Mouse Game quest:
Your kidnapped sidekick isn't available for training right now. The whole being kidnapped thing, you know.
