TRANSLATION:

PANEL 1
[Soon ...]
Jane: Alabama, I want you to stay in the open, where you can optimally utilize your speed ... / Djebel Amilah, distract the enemy's attention from the Karaboudjan ...

PANEL 2
Louwrens: How is Jane doing so far?
Alex: Quite well ... our losses have dropped sharply, and the Anakim's have increased equally sharply ...
Louwrens: ... / ... you were right, you know. She was really very easy to manipulate ...

PANEL 3
Louwrens: We were misled by her age and intelligence ... / but as far as we can tell, she was alone in that machine since she was quite young ... and how can anyone really become a mature adult without interaction with other people? / Her view of the world is oversimplified, very black and white ... / Without underestimating her, we can still say that in some ways she's actually still a child ...

What we don't know is that Jane is really listening to "what a night" by the four seasons.

I actually think that maturity has less to do with social interaction and more to do with the responsibility or accountability dilema.

@GabrielsThoughts: I see what you mean, but how would one come into contact with more mature views on responsibility/accountability if you were completely isolated? Although social interaction itself doesn't lead to maturity, you can't really expect anyone to become mature without it.
Keep in mind also that Jane was massively traumatised at a very young age, and hasn't had any access to therapy or positive influences, so she hasn't had the chance to process the horrible death of her family, which she experienced as a young child.

@Shiba: Hehe... great minds, I was going to say something in that vein.

That said, I don't implicitly endorse the opinions of any of my characters, whether or not they're a main protagonist. In this context, their assessment of Jane's character is just them talking, not me. They're not necessarily right or wrong.
