Gretchen stands at average height, a bit on the plump side. She walks with purpose, though delicately as to remain unnoticed throughout the process. She avoids eye contact and speaks just as softly as she walks, constantly needing to catch her breath. Her attire is trendy and mostly colorful, usually adorned with flowers and eye-catching jewelry, though her hands remain bare. Her face is frequently decorated in heavy cosmetics applied carefully. She usually has a small pouch of tools with her. Many times she is seen with a vest or patch with the Explorer's Union insignia upon it.

"Friend Gretchen! She is marvelous! Very good! She repaired my knee unit when the joint was burnt out in my escape, and has developed a magnificent synthskin cover! Feel this, it's almost real!
