Information on the biology and appearance of Tesla in Trigun Stampede (2023).
Tesla on SEEDS05
In “To A New World“, Vash and Knives discover that Tesla was frozen alive in SEEDS05, in several pieces. We see her disembodied right arm, tongue, left ear with inner ear attached, and tongue. Her eye has visible plant lines, the same as Vash’s. We see Tesla otherwise mostly intact, head and both legs attached but both arms missing, and her intestines and organs spilling from her torso. Her eyes or the lack of eyes is hidden by shadows.
In “To A New World“, Vash and Knives discover that the SEEDS05 database contains entries for Vash, Knives, and Tesla.
All three are listed under Project Code type-T. Their category is Independents. All three were 55 lb at time of entry. Vash and Knives were 4 ft 1 in, and Tesla was 4 ft 4 in.
Tesla and Conrad
In “Humanity“, Conrad has a photo of himself with Tesla from their time together on SEEDS05. Tesla appears to be around 1 year old chronologically and 8 years old physically. She appears to be physically intact.
Tesla’s Eye and Knives
In “Humanity“, pre-teen Knives confronts with Conrad in July, and extends his knives from his left hand. Tesla’s eye is embedded in the blades. At some point before this, likely before The Big Fall destroyed SEEDS05, Knives took Tesla’s eye and put it into his body.
Physiology: Tesla alive even after a thorough dismemberment.
