The woman was pretty nasty and stupid, not a good combination.
First she lied about where she was taking Acorna, then despite the fact that she was supposed to be Professional she completely missed the fact that the child she had taken wasn't human. Wouldn't a simple DNA test have shown that simple fact?

Obviously, she was in denial. Didn't want to believe nonhumans existed, so she didn't see the evidence.

I would really think the horn ought to have tipped her off to the possibility. It's pretty hard to explain as a human deformity!

Actually, I remember thinking that Ev Glatt was an anal retentive power-hungry loony-toon. Acorna aside.... how the blazes did an idjit like Eva get ANY job involving children? (Or, indeed, any living thing?)

Who knows? :;shakes head:: I think Amalgmated Mining was more interested in numbers than individuals, so they just stuck people in at random, whether or not they were right for the job. All about what's convenient for them.
