I wasn't finished exploring Piper variations. Here he is as an Anthrobot - a meter-tall gadget of metal and plastic whose internal water pump is more user-serviceable than any of the others. Anthrobots are still basically free-willed, though it can be hard to tell sometimes when many of them (like the Piper model here) are content to just follow instructions and not try anything ambitious. They're meant to be robots a la Asimov, where a big part of the fun is when they do the unexpected.
