There are two female characters, Maria and Maria's doppelgänger. They do not speak to each other. This, of course, depends on whether a female robot counts as being a female character, but I would say that it should (c.f. C3PO (Starwars), Bender (Futurama), or Commander Data (Star Trek) being identifiably "male" robots).

The gynoid should certainly count both as a female and a named female character.

Yes, the 'robot' was actually named Hel after the protagonists mother and was made out of living parts and endowed with artificial intelligence. She was more like a Cylon than a droid. Definitely a 1 out of 3.

Yeah, I think Hel totally counts as a woman. I mean, it still fails the test, but there are two women.
