Usually, a Robot Girl is patterned after the humanoids they are based off of in personality as well as physical form; however, there are usually odd "glitches" due to an imperfect translation between meat and machine and the difficulty of tuning emotional response to humanoid norms. They are known for having either subdued or excessive emotional response, verbal tics, and literalistic responses to conversation, although these can be reduced or eliminated by more skilled mechanics.
Sometimes they're used to house a preexisting humanoid soul, in which case they have (almost, if not completely) the same personality of the original person.
Robot Girls are humanoid beings modeled after one of the major humanoid races. They usually have telltale signs of their artificial nature, such as obvious articulation at the joints, antennae in the head region, and inflexible or metallic skin. The degree of this is usually dependent on how "natural" they are supposed to look, but they are always there.
Robot Girls are usually due to unique creation events, so they don't have many established relations with many races. Gnomes, however, are usually avoided due to their tendency to tinker haphazardly with machines.
As the typical humanoid alignments where they come from.
Robot Girls are adapted to the same lands as the humanoids they are modeled after. Highly magnetically-active regions are also favored due to reduced dietary needs.
As the greater culture surrounding them. Robot Girl clerics are usually followers of gods of artifice, earth, or storms, as these things resonate with their origins.
Robot Girls are part of a larger culture, and learn the languages commonly used in that culture. They also are innately familiar with networking protocols due to their electrical nature.
As they usually are built and develop in the culture of a natural humanoid race, Robot Girls adopt the naming conventions of that race and occasionally serial numbers. Primarily-robot societies take on the naming conventions of the humanoid society that produced them.
