Amia Riegl, known as 009-12, is a minor character in 009-1. She is part of the Nine Number Group, and exclusive to the anime adaptation. She is modeled after Cyborg 0012 from Cyborg 009, specifically the version of the character seen in the 2001 "Cyborg Soldier" adaptation.
Her abilities were profiled in a booklet that came with the sixth Japanese DVD release. Within her description, she's described as the "biological computer" of the team and the smartest.
From her brief holographic appearance, Amia appears as an incredibly pale-skinned woman with long, dark hair held back by a jeweled headband. Two front sections of her hair are tied off with white hair ties. She has no visible sclerae, and her eyes are a solid, sparkly black.
In the present day, her avatar still seems to wear the blue Nine Number Group jumpsuit that is seen on the other cyborgs in the flashback sequence in the same episode.
Through unknown circumstances, Amia Riegl became the very meeting room and intelligence system in the Zero Zero Organization, with her mind linked to the room and giving her the ability to project herself as a holographic secretary that existed within it. This would seem to prevent her from joining the rest of the team on their missions.
While she exists as this hologram, her actual physical body remains frozen deep in a laboratory within the organization. She is noted as originating from somewhere in Northern Europe.
Amia appears in a brief scene in episode 8, where she is shown whispering something about Mylene completing her mission to Number Zero in his meeting room.
However, she is quickly revealed to be a holographic projection, and vanishes in a display of pink light.
- Amia's frozen status reflects that of the 2001 version of Cyborg 0012, who was depicted as being a cryogenically-frozen dead woman from the 20th century, using her reanimated brain to power a mansion and to project a holographic avatar of herself. In contrast, Amia acts a computer system and the meeting room rather than a mansion. The 2001 setting for Cyborg 0012 was developed by Shinsuke Onishi and Naoyuki Konno, who were responsible for the creation of the anime-original Nine Number Group members.
