Sima is Alisa's salty old aunt back on Mars.
Once a young revolutionary herself, Sima raised her favorite niece to question authority and fight for freedom. Alisa's lead role in the Face Base faction initially gave the old woman hope for the future of sovereignty, but as the years pass and Sima's youth fades into the Mars landscape, her frustration in Alisa's perceived failures grows fierce.
You've taught me well, Aunt Sima. You're never too young to die for a cause.
Yet my black veil remains unworn. You're losing the revolution, Alisa. I may have snow on the roof, but still there is fire in the belly! Where is your intensity?
