No one really knows how Sufiya came to be at Botany Bay. She may have come on a transport as a stowaway or even been a survivor of an earlier attempt at colonization. She is a large, feral Capuchin monkey of terrestrial origin and lives in and around the Colony facilities as though they were her natural home. She often displays signs of intelligence well beyond what might be expected from a wild monkey but no conclusive evidence has yet been offered as to whether she is in fact sentient or merely well trained. She is known to wear a small collar , possibly taken from a refuse bin, which she fiercely resists having removed.
She is not normally dangerous nor is she considered a threat to public health or safety by the colony's AI.
