I didn't say her upbringing caused her condition. I was saying that she knew if she gave him up, it wouldn't be one of those benevolent "giving my baby a better life" things. In giving him up, she knew he'd have the same shit upbringing she did. Like, she knew she was leaving him doomed him to a cold, affectionless upbringing as a glorified intellectual slave. She just didn't care. At all.
Which was, yes, likely because of being soul-less thanks to Neron. Vril Dox was a dick. That's why I loathe the character, and much prefer Mr. 5. (Especially the reboot version, since Threeboot was also a dick).
