okay that is just wrong, organism don't have an odd number of limbs, everything in nature are symmetrical. And what is the point of these blue lines

On the one hand, every multicellular organism living on Earth, barring the occasional mutation, displays either symmetry or amorphism.

On the other hand, we don't have much data about other biospheres.

But the gripping hand is, why are you so sure her form is naturally evolved?

Well it is easy to see when something is not naturally evolved, it have irreducible complexity, the classic example for that is the wheel.
But why would anyone design a third hand?
I mean I could understand four, if thou hast ever seen "What Color Is Your Cleansuit" thou would get what I mean

Well, in the Moties' case the two hands on one side are for detail/precision work, while the third (on the opposite side, and much larger) is for things like holding the work in place.  Cayde doesn't seem to have quite that design.  But  consider a worker in a microgravity environment:  One hand for the rigging/hull/scaffolding, and one hand for the job, and a third hand for the jobs that require two hands.

And while a wheel in a living organism would be a good indication That the organism was designed, not having such features doesn't necessarily mean that it was naturally evolved.  Consider a hypothetical subspecies of humaniti that does not have a vermiform appendix.  Did it evolve out, or was it edited out?

I know that we can't prove that something was not designed, but claiming a designer when natural evolution is equally plausible falls for Occam's razor.
The theory that presupposes the least and retain the same explanatory power is always the best one.

And thy explanation for why three hands could be useful don't really say anything for why four wont be better. My problem is not additional limbs itself but the fact that it here don't come in pairs when limbs ALWAYS comes in pairs.
It is also a simply matter of balance, and if thou want to use zero-g as the reason for why balance wont be much of an issue, then I can say that nothing even remotely humanoid could develop in such an environment.
Gravity have a tremendous effect on all organisms.
This if why big animals like elephants are so lumpy while small animals dears are so stalky; size matters.

A habitable zero gravity environment would likely result in giant insects, as their normal constraint will be removed.

This purple girl that are meant to look like an alien is really just an odd coloured human with funny ears and an extra limb. It would require an almost identical evolutionary path.

The colour can be explained as camouflage, it would be useful in a purple flora world, which would be a likely leaf colour for a habitual planet that orbited an M-type star (red dwarf). Such a planet would be tidally locked, but with sufficient oceans to transport heat it could still contain life.

As for the lines, I kind of assumed that they were tattoos.
My only big problem is the third arm, that as I said, does not make sense.

Exactly.  Natural evolution does not explain the third arm (at least not on an otherwise bilaterally symmetrical being), so to explain that I postulate a non-natural origin.  And I also question the sanity of the hypothetical genetic engineer; I can't see a reasonable explanation for not either adding a pair of arms or making the lone arm a gripping arm, Motie style. But it's not as if I hadn't seen mad bioengineers in webcomics before. ^_^

but it is a handicap as her centre of gravity would be all messed up, and a prehensile tail can do much of the same things as a third arm, and actually be a help to the balance rather then a hindrance.
The most logical cause of action for someone born with a third arm is to have it surgically removed at birth.

And this third arm is worse then just a mad bioengineer, it actually breaks the suspension of disbelief, as a being born with such an abnormality would have to compensate by distributing an equal amount of mass to her left side. In other words her lone left arm would need to be as massive as her two right arms combined.
