Entry: inutile (adj.)

In context: "A damaged woman, also in a fauteuil de rollent like Marathe, slumped inutile next to the cartridge's viewer, while a male person of advanced pallor mimed the kicks and thrusts of martial arts at her motionless head, trying to force the woman to twitch or cry out."

Definition: Useless, of no service, unprofitable.

Other: Means pretty much what you'd figured, eh?
